From CitizenTea

Redefining “hot chocolate”, we bring to you a sweet and spicy chocolate chai. We paired white chocolate with fiery cinnamon, sharp ginger and earthy cloves for a dynamic and aromatic tea. Mellow rooibos is a subtle platform for the bold spices, while goji berries offer a hint of fruity freshness. Go ahead, spice things up with our Rooibos Chocolate Chai.

Ingredients: Rooibos, cinnamon pieces, ginger bits, pineapple pieces (pineapple, sugar, citric acid), cardamom, white chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, emulsifier), cloves, goji-berries, aniseed, flavouring.

Steeping Instructions: 1 tsp/cup, 100C/212F, 6-8 min.

I found this old sampler tin and have been in a chai mood lately as the cold (and very windy!) fall weather sets in here, so I decided to finally try a cup of this tonight. The aroma of the dry leaf does remind me a bit of Mexican cocoa, as I do pick up a faint chocolate aroma, with a much stronger spice smell, namely cinnamon and cardamom.

The flavor is a little flat for me… I’m not sure if it’s the age, or if maybe I should’ve overleafed this just a little. The spices have a nice flavor and are very warming, but the base feels very weak to me, somehow, like the rooibos itself doesn’t have any fullness to it, and the chocolate is getting completely overwhelmed. The cinnamon, clove, and cardamom notes are very bold but I’m a bit let down that the rooibos itself, cocoa, and fruity goji berry notes are pretty much missing… right now I sort of feel like I’m drinking spices in a cup of water.

This was a pretty large sampler so as I work through it I’ll try upping the leaf and seeing if that creates an improvement, but I’m pretty disappointed at the moment. But considering the age of the sampler by the time I’ve finally gotten around to trying it, I feel some of the blame has to be on me and I can’t judge it too harshly.

This is a good cup of chai latte tea but not one that I would rush out to buy more of (mostly because I am extremely picky as to what teas I bring into the house as I have got tons of tea to drink already).
