This is actually extremely flavourful! The chocolate is very deeply flavoured, with dark undertones and a little tiny bit of spice from the chai. It feels almost creamy without any cream. Super rich!

This tastes better and richer than a lot of the loose leaf higher grade quality chocolate teas I’ve had – I’m pleasantly surprised. Extremely surprised, actually.

Thank you Missb for sending me an almost entire box of this! Yaaay!

This tea was really, really good! Seriously! You guys need to get some…I’m craving it again right now actually! Might have to stock up on this.

It’s just so intensely, richly chocolatey…it rivals even Davids or DTT in the chocolate department. Almost felt like I was drinking a thick hot chocolate.

My daughter’s Dad loves this stuff, and so I bought some to stock the house for him. He’s had other things though the past few times he’s visited, so I thought it was time to pass it along. So glad you enjoyed it! It’s really inexpensive stuff, too.

Yvonne

Thank you so much for passing it along to me! I just absolutely adore it and it looks like it might become my new staple teabag :D I can see why he likes it so much, hehe

Bio

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.
