I wasn’t thrilled to get this in a mystery bag as I’m not usually a fan of chocolate in teas and haven’t been impressed by any other honeybush I’ve tried, but it turned out to be an exception!
The scent is strong, distinct oranges, leaning more toward authentic than a fake cough syrup orange — I can smell the rind! — but there’s a slight medicinal edge. No chocolate to be found here! Nonetheless, I like it a lot.
It tastes more or less like it smells, although in flavor the honeybush peeks out from under the orange and there’s a slight unpleasant bitter edge. I would have never guessed there was chocolate if it wasn’t in the name!
