Tisane Description:

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.

Taster’s Review:

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!
