Taster’s Review:

When I opened the tin of this Chocolate Rooibos Black Tea Blend from Fashionista Tea, I expected it to be an “ordinary” chocolate rooibos blend … what a surprise when I discovered that it was not just a rooibos blend, but a black tea and rooibos blend.

It’s really tasty too!  The combination of black tea and rooibos offers a lighter tasting base, and I am of the opinion that this lighter base allows the chocolate flavor to taste richer.

And when it comes to teas with chocolate … a strong, rich chocolate taste is just what I want!  The overall cup is chocolate-y smooth and creamy and positively decadent!  YUM!

I also like the addition of coconut and vanilla to this blend.  These two ingredients add a creaminess to the cup, and this makes for a very pleasing “latte-like” taste without adding milk.  I suppose this would also taste really good with the addition, but, I perfer to drink my teas without adding dairy, so I like that this tastes rich and creamy, just like a latte, but without adding the milk or cream.  I mean, why add fat and calories if I don’t need to?

And I also love how sweet and delicious this is without sweetener!  Another addition that doesn’t need to be added … making this a luscious dessert tea that is low-calorie and low-fat.  Awesome!
