This does smell exactly like one of those chocolate oranges you can buy around Christmas! It has that same powdery orange and dry chocolate fragrance. Unfortunately, the tea itself doesn’t have too much taste…I’m going to try using double the leaf next time to see if that helps. Right now, it’s mostly just basic tea with a very faint aftertaste of both chocolate and orange. Withholding final judgment until I try with more tea!
Update: I have now tried it with (a lot) more tea, and it just didn’t really change the flavor. I think you do need to go a little heavier on the leafing than not, though. I don’t actually dislike it, there’s just not much to like. It’s still better than not, it’s basically a fairly smooth black tea with faint chocolate and faint orange notes. I just wish there was MORE of that good stuff! I’ll now assign a numerical rating to match that.
Flavors: Chocolate, Orange
