Chocolate and pineapple waft gently through premium rooibos. A light nutty finish.

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.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
