This tea is soooo good. The dry tea smells like melted vanilla-flavoured chocolate. That delicious dessert-y experience extends right into the scent of the brewing tea, and then the taste of the tea itself. Rich, chocolatey, creamy, delicious. I've tasted chocolate-flavoured teas that were a lot less chocolatey than this, and yet the only flavouring is chopped up vanilla beans. Amazing. I added a little bit of milk and sugar today for an extra-indulgent experience, but the tea definitely doesn't need it. This is the tea I break out when I want to celebrate, or am in need of some serious comforting. So good. :)

The aroma is so intensely rich and so incredibly sweet, it is a blend of sweet vanilla (real vanilla, not vanilla extract smell) with a warm cocoa, a touch of honey, a pinch of cream, and a finish of sweet dried cherries. I admit when I first sniffed this teas I just kinda sat there in awe, I do not say this very often, but the aroma blend was perfection.

The taste starts out rich with notes of cocoa mixing cocoa butter creaminess and rich dark chocolate, this is accompanied by sweet caramelized sugar. At the beginning there is a hint of rich vanilla that builds around the mid-taste, this explodes into a sweet, creamy crescendo at the end which blends perfectly with the finishing notes of malt and pepper. The aftertaste is vanilla, and it lingers for quite a while.

Wow, what a tea! I was a little worried because the dry tea smelled like chocolate, but there was also a sharp scent I couldn’t quite identify. Once steeped, I could just smell the chocolate. Yum.

The cocoa flavor is pronounced, but not overpowering. The tea has a lovely sweetness and doesn’t need any additives to be excellent. I’m really happy with this one. I’ll definitely repurchase.

This is made with real vanilla beans, but it tastes like a cocoa tea. Lovely!
