Flavour

Deep, toasted flavours are followed by a hint of chocolate and slight bitter taste, further giving Choco Pops a dark chocolate element.

Final thoughts

In comparison to the other blends in the Autumn 2016 collection this may seem unremarkable, however it does have autumnal links. Toasted rice blended with green tea is traditionally known as Genmaicha and was used by poor Japanese people to sustain them through colder months. The addition of black tea and chocolate adds a deeper flavour to Choco Pops, creating a wholesome and warming blend, with a real feeling of late autumn in the toasted notes.
