Taster’s Review:

One word is all that is needed to really describe the flavor of this tea:  CHOCOLATE!  Yes, I said chocolate.

I previously reviewed this tisane on another tea review site – unfortunately, the archives are not available at this time (I don’t know if this is a permanent situation or not!) so I can’t route you there with a link.  But, even though I’ve already tried this tisane, it doesn’t mean that I’m not willing and eager to sample it again and write more about it.  I mean, hey, we’re talking CHOCOLATE here!  Well, cacao shells.  But once they’re brewed, they taste like a great big mug of sweet, sinful, indulgent hot chocolate.

The consistency of this drink is a little thinner than my “usual” hot cocoa because I like to make my hot chocolate with hot milk rather than water.  But, this has all the rich, chocolate-y flavor of a hot cocoa.  In fact, I prefer the flavor of this to a hot cocoa because it is more like the dark chocolate that I prefer.  I get that dark, bittersweet flavor of dark chocolate that I love and there is a wonderful contrast between the bitter and the sweet.

If you prefer a creamier or (milkier) chocolate, you can add a splash of milk or cream to the cup.  I would recommend brewing this a little stronger if you plan to go latte though so that you get a stronger impact from the chocolate.  Because let’s face it, if you’re going to be drinking a product that is 100% cacao shells, you’re looking for some decadent chocolate flavor!

And that’s exactly what Tisano delivers.  This product is 100% cacao shells – nothing else! – and it delivers a rich, delicious chocolate-y flavor that’s sure to please even the most particular of chocoholics out there.

There are few things out there that I love more than chocolate.  And this Cacao Tea from Tisano makes me a very happy chocolate lover.
