A fruit-forward blend with sweet chocolate and juicy raspberry.
This tea is billed as a combination of raspberry and chocolate and it combines both flavors quite nicely. It's neither overly fruity nor overly sweet. The chocolate notes are dark chocolate, which blends wonderfully with the dark flavors of the tea. All in all, it manages to taste like a good chocolate raspberry liqueur (and not like those awful chocolate cherry cordials that find their way into holiday chocolate boxes) was added to a rich, black tea. I highly approve. It would be the perfect after dinner/dessert tea if not for the fact that it contains caffeine. So, Tea Forte, would it be possible to make a similar blend without caffeine for true after dinner enjoyment?
