Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Amoda Tea
So smooth, full-bodied and creamy on the tongue. Nothing’s vying for attention here. You reach for this tea when chocolate’s on the mind. Red rooibos, with it’s honeyed, caramel & woodsy notes is a natural mate for the deep notes of chocolate.

This Rooibos Chocolate Tisane from Forsman Tea Company is the third and final tea from my May Tea Tasting Box from Amoda Tea. (Although I will be reviewing the caramels that we received in that box soon!) I have to say that I’m thrilled with the fact that Amoda Tea seems to have listened to me when I requested fewer tisanes and more tea in their boxes. I am not completely opposed to tasting tisanes … but when two or all three teas in the box are tisanes, I feel a little let down.
Fortunately, for the month of May, we got two amazing teas and just one tisane … and hey, the tisane is a CHOCOLATE tisane … and then we got caramels too! Woo hoo! I have no complaints about the May box! (And now am eagerly anticipating what might be in June’s box!)
And this is one very good chocolate rooibos tisane! The chocolate is a rich, flavorful, STRONGLY flavored chocolate! That’s what this chocoholic likes!
The rooibos are distinguishable in the cup, but, the naturally sweet, nutty flavor of the rooibos melds quite nicely with the chocolate-y tones. I even taste a hint of caramel as the description mentions … which is something I rarely ever take note of when I drink rooibos blends. The caramel-y note is certainly welcome here though!
This is one of the better chocolate rooibos blends I’ve come across … if you’re a chocolate lover like I am, you should try it!
Bravo, Amoda Tea! May has been my favorite month from you thus far!
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!
