Not going to lie – I only picked up this tea because the DavidsTea employee was pushing it pretty hard and I had 50g of free tea to cash in. Also it smelled like chocolate and with the new year on the rise, I was pretty intrigued by a guilt-free chocolate anything.
I’m getting over a wicked bout of the flu and after four days of eating and drinking nothing but one egg and multiple bottles of gatorade I am finally able to drink tea again – WOW did this tea surpass my expectations! I expected it to be cocoa flavoured but weak, sort of tasteless and watery, like many flavoured black teas – but instead it feels earthy and deep and rich. The internet suggests it’s the chaga mushroom that provides this depth. Note that I did add a drop of milk to it but I have to say, this literally tastes like an unsweetened hot chocolate. Definitely would recommend!
