Leaf Type: Black Tea & Rooibos
Where to Buy: Fashionista Tea
A profusion of flavors all come together in this rich chocolaty blend, with an exotic twist of coconut, perfect as a dessert tea with or without milk.

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!
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!
