So I chose this as my free 75g bag of chocolate tea during one of Deb’s weekly specials. I ended up opening it for a swap, and it smelled so good that I’ve been wanting to have some for a few days now. Well, tonight was the night!
This was a bit difficult to scoop out, as it’s a mix of many things and the orange pieces are quite large. Hopefully I got a good amount of the chocolate, cacao, and maple flakes. This is a blend of rooibos and black tea, but looked like mostly rooibos so that’s how I steeped it.
It smells like a delicious creamsicle… The taste isn’t quite as good as the smell, but still yummy. I love the orange flavor from the slices because it tastes so authentic, and it has a good balance of sweet and acidic. The chocolate is a bit more subdued than I would like, but who knows if I got a decent amount in my basket. There is something a bit cakey here, and I wonder if it’s the combination of the rooibos with the maple?
I quite like it! I’m always impressed by how much flavor Deb manages to get into these teas without adding flavoring. The orange here is particularly surprising to me, I wouldn’t think those orange pieces would contribute so much! This tea makes me think of a trifle with cake, cream, and orange, and a sprinkling of chocolate shards on top.
(P.S. – I looked up chocolate biscuit cake and OMG, it’s going on my list to make!)
