Thumbs up!"Sweetened, this is a pretty decadent dessert of a blend. It's not all fruity, not all chocolate-y but does manage to properly represent both sides of the flavor spectrum - and pretty nicely too."

This is a rooibos based blend featuring many flower petals and chips of orange peel and almond. The scent is super sweet and luscious with a rich fruit scent followed closely by a nutty citrus smoothness. I used a teaspoon of the blend to 8 ounces of water brought to a full boil and allowed 5 minutes to infuse. I enjoyed this tea with liquid stevia as a sweetener.

This tisane was very good. It was also somewhat perplexing in terms of description. It was very good but neither strictly chocolate-y nor a strictly fruity. I think it might only disappoint if a die hard chocolate lover was expecting chocolate to be first and foremost in the taste profile. The rooibos base lends a fine creamy richness to the blend that is deep and fully fruity. The chocolate in the taste is kind of cocoa like, especially in the aftertaste. I like the way the chocolate plays with the full bodied rooibos. There are also some very high, strong fruit notes at play, almost candy like but not overly so. The close has a nice cacao quality that ties things together again. Sweetened, this is a pretty decadent dessert of a blend. It's not all fruity, not all chocolate-y but does manage to properly represent both sides of the flavor spectrum - and pretty nicely too. I'd recommend it and I enjoyed it. I would also recommend it with a splash of your favorite soy, almond or whatever milk.
