These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

I grow chocolate mint, and sometimes will put a few leaves in with a gunpowder green. Turns out very well.

Botanical Indulgence from Neenah, WI (botanicalindulgence.com) makes a Black Whiskey Creme. 180 degrees for 5 min.

I'm drinking the chocolate tea right now. I love it and I have finally figured out what it reminds me of! Tootsie Rolls! I love them too.

You should think about trying culinary teas white chocolate mousse and the got other chocolates to on their site. I have never tried this tea. But I wen't to teavana's website and from the reviews the cacao mint black I's good.

In my original sampler order I received Chocolate as well as Vanilla and Cinnamon. I gave each flavor a try on its own (so I'd know what each was like hot and cold), I found that I really preferred Chocolate when it was blended with a touch of the Vanilla.

I sweeten my tea with honey; again just a touch. I'm not sure what folks prefer to sweeten their tea with or if there is a discussion of that, but that's how I roll.

My opinion once I tasted everything is the Chocolate flavored tea is more of an aromatic experience rather than a taste sensation. If I want to truly taste chocolate, that's what I have in my pantry to snack on along with my sips of tea! The black tea used in the flavor blend is strong enough to stand up to the aromatics blended into it so I didn't feel the tea was lost in the flavor.
