It’s been a while since I last had a straight cacao tea/tisane so I was excited to see this included in VariaTEA’s sample package. I know from prior experience that you need to let these kind of tisanes steep for a really long time to get flavour, so I let this one steep for a solid fifteen minutes or so. It was definitely chocolatey, with a rich taste that was also buttery and surprisingly apple-skin like!? That last part threw me for a bit of a loop. The mouthfeel, despite the rich taste, was very thin though.
Not bad; good for a nice sweet treat. Like most cacao tisanes though, this is definitely NOT something I’d ever feel the nice to stock up on.
