drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
709 tasting notes

I do not like chocolate tea, and I really do not like chocolate oranges. So I am going to try to give an unbiased review, but it will most likely be biased.

The dry tea has small little chocolate chips in it and smells like chocolate and oranges.

The brewed tea smells like chocolate, but also has that pu-erh fishy smell. Shudders.

On immediate sip, the brewed tea tastes like semi-sweet chocolate. I would say it is more like cocoa powder than an actually piece of chocolate. Then I taste candied oranges. Then I taste the fish/seaweed pu-erh. It is almost like I am tasting 3 different teas. The tastes do not really mix, they come out at different points in the sip.

I did not like the taste of this one, due to my taste preferences, but it is a weird blend otherwise.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
