| || I left a similar review for the Double Dark Chocolate Mate. I tried these teas for the first time recently with three other people and no one liked any of the ones we tried so far (peppermint, red velvet, and one other one; we also tried the double dark chocolate which you have to buy separately and it was equally bad). Three of us are not very picky, but we couldn't even finish our cups! My girlfriend -- who I would say is a little picky in taste -- nailed it. She said she could tell they weren't using real chocolate. I looked at the ingredients and sure enough, the main ingredient in most of them was "carob", a chocolate substitute that doesn't actually taste like chocolate, and is much less flavorful (read more about it here: http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/what-is-carob.htm).
Bottom line, it tastes like some chemical imitation flavor, the way watered down cherry kool aid might resemble the flavor of actual cherries. Some people like drinks like that. I don't.
Don't get me wrong, I don't expect a ch || |
