This was a sample.
The smell makes me think of chocolate truffles. The taste is very much chocolate, but no truffles – unless you add sugar(Only did that with one cup). It’s been … 8 years I think, since I last put plain sugar in any tea(I sometimes use vanilla sugar, but rarely – mainly it’s a way to “fix” a tea that steeped too long). I don’t want to make it a habit. But I think it may be meant to be drunk that way(with milk and sugar, like an English Breakfast) – guess that would be a point in favor of not buying it. Although, it is very chocolatey with just milk, very tasty … so, not sure.
