Taster’s Review:

This Lavender Chocolate and Cinnamon Rooibos Blend from Lu-Lin Teas just smells too good!  The combination of cinnamon and chocolate evokes thoughts of my homemade hot cocoa … something I haven’t made in a long time (what can I say?  I’ve been busy drinking tea!) but something that when I take the time to make is absolutely indulgent.  And the hint of lavender adds such a lovely floral tone to the aroma without going overboard and making it smell like a bar of soap.

And the best part about this tisane is that it tastes just like I wanted it to taste.  It is a pleasing balance of the key three ingredients … just enough of each one to provide a lovely flavor that is sweet, cinnamon-y … chocolate-y and floral … and not very rooibos-y!  That’s a win-win in my book.

The cinnamon is sweet and has just enough sassy spice to keep the flavor interesting without overwhelming the cup – something that cinnamon can sometimes do!  The chocolate … well, I am a chocoholic, so yes, there could be more cacao flavor here, but, there is enough to bring a smile to my face.  It taste delicious and decadent.

But the real surprise here is the way the lavender plays in this cup … it is delicate and sweet.  Lavender is one of those ingredients that when overdone, the tea ends up tasting soapy, and when underdone … what’s the point.  This is has a lovely floral intonation but not so much that I taste “soap.”  Instead, I just taste delicious lavender … one of my favorite tea floral flavors.

A really lovely tisane … I highly recommend this one, whether you’re a fan of chocolate, or of cinnamon, or of lavender (or if you happen to be a fan of all three, like me!) you really should try this tisane!
