I used a heaped teaspoon of the blend per 8 ounces of boiled water and allowed a five minute steep. I enjoyed this sample sweetened lightly with liquid stevia. The cup poured out a dark chocolate-y orange color and smelled pretty decadently of chocolate. There is a definite, tasty chocolate flavor to the blend with a great tasting vanilla-esque creaminess to the cup. The chocolate is thick and luscious and reminds me of a sophisticated tasting, thinly bodied cocoa. There are liqueur like attributes to the taste as to the smell in that there's an almost alcohol like linger in the mouth that is really pleasant and good tasting. The coconut and vanilla flavors provide a full body, working well with the rooibos and little kick of black tea to support the tasty chocolate dessert flavor of this tea. This is enjoyable in every sense!
What I like perhaps best about this blend is that the rooibos is as much a part of the flavor profile as the chocolate. Rather than a super over the top dessert tea extravaganza, so sweet you feel almost weird after drinking it, this blend has subtleties to the taste. Nothing is out of balance. You can taste good sweetness, good chocolate and vanilla and creamy components. You can even discern the extra body provided by the tea in the mix. The rooibos is distinct. Everything works together to create a natural tasting sweet treat that is relaxing and enjoyable to spend the night curled up with.
If you like dessert teas, I highly recommend adding some of this to your next order from Tea District.
