Tea with real chocolate? YUM! I got a sample of this from Stacy and I was blown away by the scent right away. Orange, chocolate, tea, and a sweetness I can’t put my finger on make this a fragrant tea.
My sample melted a little in the mailbox (it was a hot day in the bay yesterday) so there were little chocolatey lumps of tea in there today. Sadly, shortly after steeping I dropped my brew basket on the floor sob and all the delicious wet tea leaves fell out on my work carpet. I really wanted to try a resteep on this one!
I was so excited to try this tea I burned my tongue! Waiting a bit… thank goodness I can leave it and do a little work while my thermos keeps it hot. This is a good tea! I’m tasting mostly black tea and chocolate, with a little citrus aftertaste. I wish I had thought to bring my rock sugar to work with me so I could try this sweetened. I’ll just have to use my imagination on that one. I bet it’s wonderful sweet — it probably makes the chocolate flavors pop.
If you like those chocolate “break ’em apart” oranges, then try this tea. It’s like a liquid version of that holiday treat! Yum, yum, yum…
