This tea is courtesy of the amazing Missb! Thank you!

It smells rather good, but to be honest the chocolate flavour falls completely flat. It ends up tasting more like paper or…stale? Like very stale chocolate? Kinda feels like I’m drinking a cardboard box. :( I’m getting a slight hint of sweet and nutty from a fake hazelnut flavour, but there’s very little depth to the tea overall. Mostly I just taste stale paper. Nope.

I think DavidsTea has the only chocolate tea blends I can drink. Anything else tastes like the super cheap hot cocoa that is like someone dipped a hershey bar into hot water just ever so slightly.

I have no idea if that made sense but yea.

I’ve also had good experiences with Della Terra’s chocolate teas. And a couple of the ones from Teavana aren’t bad – Slimful Chocolate Decadence being one of them. But yeah, Davids tends to have the best of the best!

Ana

I still need to try della. One of these days I’ll bite. I was going to place an order recently but then Davids announced their cherry blossom tea is coming back.

Yvonne

Definitely try DTT! They are wonderful :) You won’t be disappointed with Dubbele Chocolade in particular if you like really deeply chocolatey teas.

My name is Yvonne. I’m 20 and live in a snowy Canadian wasteland known as Manitoba.

I’m relatively new to the loose tea world, although I used to drink generic Red Rose tea constantly. A friend introduced me to a Teavana tea one chilly winter and I got myself slightly intrigued. Went to purchase it myself, used shoddy equipment to prepare it, and was discouraged.

Christmas 2013 rolled around, and despite having an awful holiday for other reasons, I received some of Teavana’s Cha Yen Thai as a gift after asking for chai tea. I went out and bought a proper infuser cup and was instantly hooked. Now my tea collection is steadily growing! I’m obsessed!

I like:
Dessert teas, black teas, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh, mate, chai, chamomile, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, pineapple, tropical mixes, nutty, sweet, complex flavours, indulgent flavours

I do NOT like:
Green teas, herbal teas, white teas, teas too overbearing with fruit, pure tisane, cloyingly sweet teas, hibiscus, peanuts, burning my mouth

I am lactose intolerant (pretty severely, actually – I do not consume any dairy product) but I find that the miniscule amounts of dairy found in some teas don’t bother me for the most part.

100 – My absolute favourite teas. Without them, I will cry salty tears of despair.

99 – 95 – Cream of the crop, although missing SOMETHING to make them a perfect favourite. Not something I couldn’t possibly live without, but pretty darn close. Lots of teas in this category tend to reach 100 eventually.

95 – 75 – Yummy, but if it disappeared tomorrow I’d quietly mourn it for about 15 minutes and move on to a favourite. Leaves something to be desired.

75 – 50 – Passable, but not by much. Something I’d really have to be in the mood for to drink.

50 and lower – Nope nope nope. Not for me. Probably couldn’t or had a hard time finishing the cuppa. Doooown the sink.
