Taster’s Review:

One word is all that is needed to really describe the flavor of this tea:  CHOCOLATE!  Yes, I said chocolate.

I previously reviewed this tisane on another tea review site – unfortunately, the archives are not available at this time (I don’t know if this is a permanent situation or not!) so I can’t route you there with a link.  But, even though I’ve already tried this tisane, it doesn’t mean that I’m not willing and eager to sample it again and write more about it.  I mean, hey, we’re talking CHOCOLATE here!  Well, cacao shells.  But once they’re brewed, they taste like a great big mug of sweet, sinful, indulgent hot chocolate.

The consistency of this drink is a little thinner than my “usual” hot cocoa because I like to make my hot chocolate with hot milk rather than water.  But, this has all the rich, chocolate-y flavor of a hot cocoa.  In fact, I prefer the flavor of this to a hot cocoa because it is more like the dark chocolate that I prefer.  I get that dark, bittersweet flavor of dark chocolate that I love and there is a wonderful contrast between the bitter and the sweet.

If you prefer a creamier or (milkier) chocolate, you can add a splash of milk or cream to the cup.  I would recommend brewing this a little stronger if you plan to go latte though so that you get a stronger impact from the chocolate.  Because let’s face it, if you’re going to be drinking a product that is 100% cacao shells, you’re looking for some decadent chocolate flavor!

And that’s exactly what Tisano delivers.  This product is 100% cacao shells – nothing else! – and it delivers a rich, delicious chocolate-y flavor that’s sure to please even the most particular of chocoholics out there.

There are few things out there that I love more than chocolate.  And this Cacao Tea from Tisano makes me a very happy chocolate lover.

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
