The chocolate taste is deliciously precise and fresh, rather than creamy or thick. With hints of cinnamon, chicory, ginger, cloves and peppercorns - just what you need to spice it up! Chocolate kernels do not contain caffeine, though they do have a lovely clean chocolate taste.
I could detect the chocolate taste but for me chocolate has to be the 70% + variety so this tea wasn't to my taste, one cup and I'm afraid I threw the rest away.

My hubby bought this for me and I have to say it was lovely. I like chai tea anyway but the chocolate added a little cosy-ness factor that suits the cold evenings when you want something hot, not too fattening and caffeine free. We add a little sugar and steeped for nearer 8 minutes, it is chocolate chai tea heaven.

This smells gorgeous and has a lovely spiced taste. It doesn't taste like chocoalte but it smells a bit like it. Just remember one teaspoon per person- its horrbile otherwise
i like it strong so about 8 mintues
cant get enough, will buy more
even if its pricey
not for me

had high expectations, but to me this tea is tasteless and the texture is quite strange. After taste is not good, too. I don't feel chocolate, only some spices, though it very much smells like chocolate.

i don't normally write reviews but i absolutely love this tea! it's mellow yet deep, and being caffeine free i can sip it all day. i love the chocolatey flavour and agree with other reviewer about letting it steep for long.
Have to have this in my cupboard

This is a delicious chai, with a full flavour and a real depth to it. Love the spices and its possible to pick out the pink pepper and cardamon. Personally, I like to leave this to steep for much much more than five minutes, then the richness of the chocolate comes through and the spicing builds. This is an all time favourit of mine and most days, I will have a pot of this on the go. A taste of chocolate, without the calouries!
heaven in a cup
