The first try out of the bag on this one was really bad. It was sour and muddled and honestly kind of gross. It was a brand new sample so I can’t really determine if the ingredients were bad or it was just a bad blend. I honestly want to toss it out after that first experience.

Adagio let me choose four samples for free to try. They have a limited selection of single size samples but I did notice that they added some new ones.
Unfortunately, this one just tasted like a plain rooibos and didn’t live up to the name.

This was pretty good, though first steeping did have an odd chocolate flavor. One thing though, if you don’t like rooibos, you won’t like this as the rooibos flavor is still strong. That being said that was a nice dessert blend. Sweet flavors from the chocolate and caramel, and some warm nutty notes; maybe from the chicory? The After the first few steepings I poured in boiling water in my tea pot and let it brew overnight. Had a nice cinnamony cup in the morning. Though the cinnamony wasn’t as detectable in the early steepings. Overall a nice blend, that I’m glad I got to try, but I don’t feel like buying more.

p.s. I did add sugar to my cup.

Chocolate teas rarely win me over. They always seem thin and disappointing. This tea, I must say, is completely awesome. The tea seems thick because it’s so full of desserty flavor. The chocolate and pecan come through so clearly. The rooibos is just a supporting background player that you don’t really notice. I had to drink this one slowly, letting each sip linger for a long time because the flavor really sticks around. This is one of the best dessert teas I’ve ever had, and definitely one of my Adagio favorites.

This does NOT taste like a pecan turtle…

I knew as soon as I smelled the dry leaf that this tea would taste quite sad. I mean, it literally just smells like rooibos. Steeped, there’s maybe a hint of chocolate and a little bit of chicory but the profile is REALLY bland and the last thing that I was describe it as is “rich” or sweet/decadent. This might have been the most disappointing thing from this cluster of teas for me, as the concept is really tasty sounding – but the delivery just isn’t there.
