drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

There is something so inherently Christmas-y about a dark chocolate and orange combination. With midterms over and final exams (and Christmas!) on the horizon, I was definitely in the mood for a little pre-emptive Christmas cheer :)

Now, I’m not usually a fan of chocolate teas. In fact, before today, I had never found a chocolate tea that would ever entice me to take more than a sip. Most of them remind me of Sharpies, in some strange way. However, this chocolate flavour worked really well with the other flavours in the tea. The orange peel imparted the citrus note that kept the chocolate from feeling too heavy, and the pu’erh added a wonderful earthiness to the brew. It really brings you back to a sweet orange and chocolate treat you might find in our Christmas stocking, but without the cloying sweetness and the subsequent sugar coma. And as always, the pu’erh was great after what was, perhaps, an overindulgence at the dinner table :p

Overall, a nice holiday tea to be enjoyed when you want a little guilt-free indulgence :)
