I love rose teas. I love black tea. I do NOT like chocolate teas, but the idea of roses and chocolate was too good (and too romantic) not to try. So against my better judgement, I bought a tagalong of this. I'm very glad I did - it is absolutely delicious. I experimented with this tea, and found it is absolutely delicious plain, with a teaspoon of sugar, and with a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of milk. It was delicious all three ways. A word of warning though - this is not like hot cocoa. The tannins from the tea and the rose essence give it a distinctive sharpness. It is however, very tasty.

I would have given this tea 5 star rating, but as a tea blender myself I found that buying the loose leaf rose scented tea which is by far my favorite Harney's, and just adding a dash of dark chocolate powder myself gives the same effect. I have indeed bought this blend many times.. and it is excellent. I just notice the rose blend is slightly more aromatic. It is just a subtle preference. You can not go wrong with this tea. Since my birthday is the day before Valentine's, a loved one usually picks this blend up for me. I also recommend this blend in my book THE VINTAGE VEGAN: ART of VEGAN TEA HOSTING.
This tea was a pleasant surprise! I am always looking for new teas and I love flavored black tea, so I ordered this one to try. I really love that it tastes like your eating a piece of chocolate cake! The rose notes are a great touch too, they give it a unique flavor. I really like to drink this tea for dessert after dinner. :)
