| || I don't know how this tea has so many good reviews. I tried it for the first time recently with three other people and no one liked it. 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 is "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). The next ingredient is Yerba Mate, then "organic natural dark chocolate flavors", whatever that means. After that, they finally list cocoa, but they clearly do not put enough in to make the tea taste good.
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.
