Review: As you would expect, the smell is fudgy…and sort of green tea-y. Tasting it, the flavour is almost entirely green tea, with a very faint hint of artificial vanilla that lingers long afterward. This provides just enough sweetness to take away the bitter edge of the actual tea, although it leaves you wondering what you can do to take away that taste of flavouring. Then there’s a citric acid-like kick at the back of the throat – a sort of sourness, almost like grapefruit. Bizarre.
You might have noticed something missing from that description: fudge. We couldn’t taste it at all. Far from being the gross-fest we anticipated, this blend is, at best, boring with a bad aftertaste. You may as well buy plain green tea. Besides, why does anyone drink green tea, other than to feel healthy? All that flavouring defeats the purpose. If you really want a chocolatey drink without the calories, there are plenty of better infusions made with real cocoa shells.
Best time of year to drink this: If you must…maybe winter.
Best time of day to drink this: After lunch.
