From 2017, still sealed. Worked through a terrible migraine all day and just need some desserty-tea therapy tonight.
The chocolate is coming through surprisingly well, with a bit of a creamy, fudgy quality I taste mid-sip, with the orange hitting late in the sip and leaving a lingering presense of zesty citrus. It’s a very spot-on chocolate/orange flavor combo. The rooibos base is fairly strong here though — perhaps because whenever red rooibos is paired with something fruity/citrusy, medicinal notes seem to come forward on my palate which hide from me otherwise. That is, perhaps, the only thing bringing this tea down. There is still a nice nuttiness to the base that I believe the chocolate is really bringing out, and just a hint of a vanilla sweetness.
