Naturally caffeine free, this sweet treat makes a wonderful dessert at the end of your day. Steep it a little longer (up to ten minutes) for more chocolate flavor. Add a splash of your favorite milk and a piece of German rock sugar to enhance the creamy sweetness.

Fun Facts:

South Africa's Eastern Cape is home to both honeybush and rooibos. Honeybush has a smooth, gentle, honeyed flavor and is slightly fuller bodied than rooibos. Like rooibos, honeybush is naturally caffeine free, and it has a clean and refreshing taste that makes a fantastic base for herbal blends. Honeybush has no astringency and a low tannin content, so it is especially suitable for children.

    Chocolate-y Goodness!

    Posted by Destiny on Oct 23rd 2016

    You totally can’t judge this tea by the smell of the dried leaves alone. When you take a whiff of the dry blend, it’s more of a caramel creme smell. It’s only after hot water melts the chocolate bits that the smell of chocolate come through; along with notes of toasty vanilla and a subtle hint of floral. I didn’t find the floral rose notes until I began looking for them, but after you’re aware, it does add a nice complexity to the cup. I should also add that I’ve never liked a chocolate desert type tea. I guess I’ve changed my mind!

    Wow! This cup of tea seriously tastes like chocolate cake. The nice thing is that I can indulge without the guilt of the excess calories that come with eating a piece of chocolate cake.

    YUM and DOES HELP Sinus stuff!

    Posted by Dana Jones on Jan 15th 2012

    I have a bit of a sinus/allergy thing going, so not feeling great. Made a cup of this tea, sat down, started sipping, and immediately started feeling better. Went back and read about Rooibos, now I'm a believer!! The tea itself is delightful, has a nice hint of chocolate to it, not overpowering like a cup of cocoa would be. Made in my keurig kcup, put in two tsp, made 2 large cups of tea!!

    Another winner

    Posted by Sivan Ajami on Aug 8th 2011

    Wow, another amazing tea. Each one has unique flavors, but none fall from the high standards that I am coming to learn characterizes all Fusion's teas. This tea, when hot, is really chocolate cake. But not just. There is the sweet honeybush base that lends it's distinctive sweetness. Put all together, it's a wonderful cup! When cold, it's more honeybush than chocolate, but that's good too, because the honeybush is delicious in itself.
