I received another sampling of this tea thanks to Ost – thank you! I know this tea wasn’t one of your favorites, but I did enjoy it the first time I tried it and I’m enjoying it now. I think that the chocolate notes would be better achieved if they used cacao shells rather than just the flavoring because there is a tad of an artificial-ness going on with this particular cup. Not bad, but it doesn’t taste as truly chocolate as I would like it to.
The caramel notes are nice and I can taste a hint of what is somewhat nutty but because it’s called a ‘turtle’ I think I’d like a little more nutty flavor.
