I am a bit obsessed with chocolate tea ever since I got a sample of some from another tea retailer. That tea has been my favorite of all the chocolate teas I’ve tried but it requires shipping costs which I hate so I’ve tried to find something similar everywhere I can. This tea, while good, does not displace that as my favorite. First steeping was nice and chocolatey, but I think this other tea uses milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate. I love dark chocolate but found the balance between the black tea and the milk chocolate to be slightly more pleasing. The disappointment with this tea came on the second steeping which turned out extremely weak. I had considered bumping this one to my chocolate tea default considering cost and ease of procurring more but with no second steep I don’t think I can do that. So the quest continues. I guess there are worse ways to spend one’s time.

Have you tried Joy’s Teaspoon’s Chocolate Pot de Tea yet in your quest? I haven’t tried it yet personally but have heard good things. I personally enjoy David’s Tea’s Ready My Lips but it has a good deal of mint in it as well.

Joy’s Chocolate Pot de Tea is the one that I’m trying to replicate. It’s the one I reference as the sample I received. However, I HATE paying shipping so I’ve been trying to find something else, locally, if possible.

Ahhhh. I’ve placed two orders with them so far (despite hating shipping). I just conpensate by buying my faves in the largest quantity possible. I think I have a sample of Pot de Tea somewhere that I should try now that I like chocolate.

Hello!
I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
