Oh. My. Goodness.

This is freaking AWESOME.

Because Teagasm doesn’t adequately describe what I’m experiencing at the moment, I’m going to say ChocolaTeaGASM.

So good. So very very good. I am sad that I only got a sample packet of this from Tea Review Blog (going to write my review of this tea for the blog in a few moments) because I could drink this every day. I will have to hunt this down and buy some.

Rich. Chocolate. Sweet. Chocolate. Delicious. CHOCOLATE. This is better than any sipping chocolate or any hot chocolate. Oh… yum yum yum yum yum.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

VERY few teas actually make me say “holy freakin crap!” out loud when I read the title of a tea. This is one of them! Yes, it made me talk to my computer:)

Anyone who likes chocolate must try this. It is amazing. And… now it is gone. I need to get a bigger tea mug.

Any idea where you can buy this wonder tisane? The Tisano website says it’s available on amazon.com but I couldn’t find an entry.

LiberTEAS

I don’t know. I received it as a sample as a reviewer for Tea Review Blog. However, the website does indicate that it’s available at some Whole Foods and I’m going to ask my local Whole Foods to start carrying it as well… because I MUST HAVE MORE.

I found it, along with several of the company’s other products.

It doesn’t have the fancy-shmancy tin, but it is, in fact, cacao tea from the company owned by the dude — Eastbay Trading Co.

Until you can locate the tin at a retailer, this may do in a pinch! Not bad for $4.00.

I’ve never had anything from this company! I was looking at a few of them on TRBWOW!!! Sounds interesting!

Cofftea

Perfect sophistre as I don’t want the tin anyway- thanks!:)

After reading something from a local cafe on FB, I just got a wonderful idea- add some peppermint to it, steep it in milk, and add matcha. Yes, I know, I don’t like matcha and dairy… but I think it may be good. Shoot. I just found reason I need this NOW lol!

Wow… thanks so much for the great comments… We are just starting our roll out of this product after some great testing. We are small family run business that started in chocolates and cacao buying fairly traded cacao from farming communities in Venezuela and me and my brothers were the first to export organic certified cacao, thats how we came across the idea of the tea.

sophistre you made me laugh out loud… We started with the polybags to get the product out there and get reviews from our Amazon and Ebay customers and once we won an award at the Natural Products Expo we decided to go FancySchamzy tin route and brand Cacao Tea chocolate herbal tea under Tisano, which means – Tisane and Artesano (spanish word for artisan).

Cofftea we are actually launching blends in the spring… maybe i can send you some samples for feedback?

Paul and anyone else who wants cacao tea our site is finally live and we are doing sample giveaways to get the buzz going… very grass roots guerailla marketing, small company of family and friends trying to get the idea of Tisano chocolate tea out there.

p.s. – i am the guy under the story tab with the blue shirt carying 120pounds of fresh cacao beans across the river!

Thanks again for all your positive comments – you made my day!

Profile

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

*

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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
