The rooibos here is a little peppery. Maybe that’s from the hazelnut flavoring. It’s not a flavoring I prefer in any blend I find it in. I love all other nuts, but hazelnuts are sometimes weird for me. I don’t sense any chocolate here. The blend is rather thin and unexciting. I wish I’d had milk in the house when I drank this one because I’m sure that would have helped, but even so, it wasn’t up to par with other chocolate rooibos blends. Or I guess it kind of was because many chocolate rooibos blends aren’t super great. But some are. Not really this one.
