Let’s face it, there are few of us who don’t like chocolate! As a chocolate lover I used to have high hopes for chocolate tea but, after a while, I started taking the term “chocolate tea” with a pinch of salt. Unfortunately, I’ve never tasted one that lived up to the real thing. This doesn’t mean chocolate tea is bad, just, you know, be cool, don’t get too excited.
The aroma on this blend does have a likeness to milk chocolate, but the brewed flavour is hard to get right. If under steeped the flavour is weak, if overdone the tea is bitter and tannic. The line between the two is very fine and hard to find (some steeping recommendations might have helped!). The good news? Whichever end of the spectrum you land, chocolate notes are present, ranging from mild to dark chocolate-like, with a vanilla creaminess.
