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!
