Taster’s Review:

This is yummy.  It reminds me a bit of my homemade hot chocolate – made from scratch – which I really don’t make often enough.  Now I don’t have to make it at all!  I’ll just brew some of this chai instead.

This has a wonderful chocolate flavor.  It is a deep, dark chocolate flavor that is bittersweet.  The Assam base provides a solid backdrop of flavor, and seems to propel the flavors of chocolate to the forefront.  Assam typically is a strong, malty and substantial tea, and while it isn’t front and center of this particular blend, it is an essential part of this tea because it helps to bring the other flavors to life in a really delicious way.

After the chocolate notes, what I notice is a spicy cinnamon kick, which is enhanced by the peppery flavor of ginger.  The cardamom adds a warm, citrus-y note to the background.

This combination of cacao, spices and tea makes for an incredibly warm, comforting and indulgent cup.  A must try for all you chocoholics out there!
