This is one of the most unusual Earl Grey teas I’ve ever encountered, and yep… that’s just why I ordered the sample of it – I simply had to try a Chocolate flavored Earl Grey tea.

The chocolate in this blend is surprisingly strong, while the bergamot is a bit more subdued… I really expected it to be the other way around. A very pleasant blend! I may have to actually order more of this one. A very good chocolate blend.

Does it taste anything like those orange flavored chocolates in the shape of an orange where the pieces are the segments of the orange? I know bergamot isn’t orange, but as it’s citrus I thought there might be some likenesses. That’s kinda what the Earl Grey Theo chocolate tastes like.

Actually, bergamot is an orange… it’s just not the like the navel orange or valencia orange flavor that you might be more used to when it comes to an orange that you might peel to eat or squeeze for it’s juice. But it is still considered an orange.

To answer your question, yes, it is a bit like those orange flavored chocolates, but with a couple of significant differences because I can taste the floral qualities of the bergamot as well as hints of the jasmine. Plus, there is a distinct lemony note.

I got the Theo chocolates too. I haven’t yet tried the Earl Grey one… that will be the next one I try!

What is your secret to having some left? lol! The only reason I didn’t scarf them is I kinda forgot about them lol.

That’s my secret, to be honest… I have to hide things from myself… out of sight, out of mind. Then, only when I am really craving chocolate do I remember them! :)

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
