Taster’s Review:

This is one of the most unusual spice “melange” teas/tisanes that I’ve come across.  The chocolate flavor is sweet yet savory, and the spices enhance that savory experience.

I’m getting peppery, warm spice taste, as well as deep, roasted flavor.  I like the way these tastes come together… it is spicy, but not too spicy… sweet, but not too sweet.  And the roasty-toasty flavor that I’m getting from the chicory is more of a background note, so it doesn’t overwhelm the other flavors.

And then there is the CHOCOLATE!  And that is what attracted me to this blend in the first place.  The chocolate is rich and is what I would call a mix of semi-sweet chocolate morsels and a high quality cocoa powder.  Just enough bitter, just enough sweet, just enough savory to make this a delightful chocolate-y cocoa experience!

If I were to change anything about this particular blend, I’d add more chocolate.  Perhaps some cacao shells?  This would really add some deep, rich, chocolate flavor.

But, other than wanting more chocolate (and I ALWAYS want more chocolate) I really like the way this melange comes together.  It’s a nice fusion of flavors!
