Product Review (submitted on February 13, 2010):
I'll start out by saying I'm not a HUGE flavored tea fan. I enjoy only a few, mostly spiced things, apricot or currant, Paris and Earl Grey. I enjoy assams, ceylons, darjeelings, oolongs, a few whites, and only a very few greens. I'm mainly a black tea person. On a whim I ordered this. It's not terrible, but not spectacular. I could smell this tea when I opened the cardboard box it arrived in, that's how strong the chocolate scent is on the tea. It actually isn't overpowering taste-wise, which is good. The black tea itself doesn't taste like it has much going on - the normal tea flavor isn't very pronounced. Those of you who normally love all manner of artificially flavored black teas - you know who you are - I'm sure you'll love this. I must say this is the first Harney tea I'm unimpressed with, so I'll pass on the V-day blend from now on.
