Roses are lovely...

    … but I wouldn't want to drink them! This unfortunate brew tastes like guest soap!

    Not a good combo

    I didn't care for this combination

    No Chocolate Taste

    I probably would have liked this tea if I could have tasted any chocolate. However, I could not, which was a huge let down.

    On the Fence

    I purchased the single steeps sampler (which I love being able to try loose teas this way!) When I opened the packet I smelled the roses immediately. The chocolate is a slight note behind it. I was hesitant to take a sip because the aroma of the roses is slightly overpowering. I will say it is an interesting cup of tea. If you like a floral tea than this is a tea for you. I feel like the chocolate flavor gets lost with the roses.

    Enjoyable, but I'm not going to crave it the way I crave plain ol' Darjeeling tea. Doesn't taste like soap! It's a very distinct mocha flavor finished with a sweet floral note. Definitely recommend for those who like chocolate flavors.

    Drinking perfume

    Although Tea Forte has made a valiant effort this tea sadly falls into the pitfall many rose teas do in which the rose overwhelms everything. It's not a BAD tea. But by comparison to many of the others I'd give it a pass on buying it again.

    Different for sure

    Out of all the teas I have bought this was my least favorite....... I only had one cup out of it..... plan on giving it to someone who will enjoy it...... didn't like the rose in it!

    Great Combo Except The Rose Needs Fine Tuning

    This tea combination had great appeal, especially that it's organic, so I got two canisters for Valentine's Day. I found the rose flavor a little too overwhelming and couldn't taste any hint of chocolate. So I'd say this is a rose flavor black tea. I would be great to fine tune the flavor balances a little better with less rose and more chocolate, even if it means adding a flavor additive. The chocolate's just not there for my taste pallet to detect.
