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.
