What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Could NOT get past the smell
After reading reviews, I decided to let it steep a little longer than 7mins and it was indeed weak. But I couldn't get past the smell. Did not smell like delicious chocolate. More earthy. And the taste wasn't flattering either. just not my cuppa.
I was VERY disappointed ) = I love red velvet cake and I thought this would be perfect to get the taste without the calories. Not even close- I can't believe I spent $10.00 on something this bad.
My Least Favorite Chocolate Tea
I tried the variety pack of chocolate teas so I could find my favorites before ordering in bulk. I didn't hate any of them, but this was definitely my least favorite. There was something artificial about the taste and the smell, and it just didn't do it for me. I thought some of the other chocolate flavors were much better.
Amazing... but with a drawback
The main problem with this tea is how weak it is if less than 3 bags per cup is used. I average 4-5 bags per cup to get the really rich chocolate flavor. I add a little sugar and a splash of white chocolate mocha creamer and I swear its the best I've ever drank. The key is making sure its brewed strong for the true flavors to come out. The down side to that is I go through a canister of the bags WAY too fast.
Second chocolate tea from Republic of tea I tried and this and the peppermint are both amazing. This tea is smooth and rich. Bonus no soy or dairy in their teas( exception a probiotic tea with dairy).
