Taster’s Review:

At first, I found this tisane to be slightly disappointing.  It tasted like pure rooibos, not a chocolate and pineapple flavored rooibos which is what I was looking forward to trying!  However, after about two sips, the chocolate and pineapple emerged.

This is really quite good … not disappointing at all!

While I would like for there to be more chocolate (but then, is there EVER enough chocolate?), there is a pleasant amount of chocolate-y flavor and I like the creaminess that the chocolate flavor brings to the cup.  The same is true for the pineapple, I should like to have a slightly stronger pineapple note, but, I like the way the pineapple brightens the overall flavor of the tisane.

The rooibos, which was quite prevalent in the first couple of sips, seems to taken a back seat to the chocolate and pineapple notes now.  I do taste notes of nutty flavor from the rooibos, and this melds quite nicely with the chocolate-y flavor.

An enjoyable cup, one that requires just a bit of patience from the sipper, but, that patience is rewarded.
