Chocolatey, and a nice cup of tea. Dessert-like tea. I don’t get a lot of citrus flavor as Cameron noted so I agree with her. Maybe… Maaaybe a little citrus zest. I do like the dark cocoa flavor, and it tastes more chocolatey than other chocolate flavored teas I’ve tried. I’m thinking the very light bitterness is due to the citrus rind, and that adds to it. I like the base, it’s malty, some dried sweet fruit notes. I recommend it, it’s a good taste, just don’t expect a lot of citrus flavor, if at all. :P

Sipdown!

I never did find the yuzu in this tea. Honestly I’m not sure I would’ve enjoyed the combination anyway, I’m not a huge fan of lemon and chocolate together and yuzu is even sharper than lemon.

But this is a perfectly pleasant brisk black tea with cocoa. The base is a CTC, and has a nice strong, malty flavor with notes of raisin and dark caramel. There’s some wood as well. The cocoa is definitely the unsweetened variety, and the light astringency of the tea helps drive home the powdery quality as well.

It’s a tasty non-yuzu chocolate black tea. I’m not sure I was too highly impressed with any of Lupicia’s “chocolat” range, though perhaps the raspberry version was the best one? I remember liking the Earl Grey as well…

I loved Marron Chocolat, it always reminded me of Nutella.

@Mastress Alita – I forgot about that one, though I don’t remember what I thought of it…
