1 TB for 450 mL water, 1 scant tsp white sugar.

My beloved Super Chocolate is STILL unavailable from the DavidsTea site. It’s been three months now!

A dear friend recently visited Halifax-Dartmouth, where there’s a bricks-and-mortar DavidsTea, and brought me back a packet. I am sipping the second infusion now. Not as much chocolate or cocoa taste in this batch, but plenty of green rooibos and a bit of cinnamon. I can see what DavidsTea wants to re-formulate this blend a bit — if only to make it consistent from batch to batch. It’s always been good, though. (I wish they’d hurry up!) Delicious and refreshing and a bit sweet. Excellent evening tisane. Love.

Agreed! I haven’t had it from multiple batches, but I need more.

I er, um, well, knew I was getting bags from different batches because, well, er, I ordered SC in 250g bags. (Those big bags might last me 6 weeks.) And then I’d have kind friends buy me some from stores. Subtle differences between some of the big 250g bags and the bricks-and-mortar blends. Relative freshness might play a role there, too.

PLEASE, DT, hurry up with the Super Chocolate. I’ve got 25 (!) grams right now, each TB getting steeped twice. A sweet friend is going to get me $20 worth the next time she’s near a DT store, but we’re not sure when that might be … I’m convinced I feel better after knocking back this particular rooibos blend.

Wow! I knew you liked this tea, but didn’t realize how much.

My store has never carried Super Chocolate as it opened in December. They don’t even know what I’m talking about when I ask after it. But if other stores still have it I should try to make it to another location. If I luck out, I’d be happy to send a bit your way!

Michelle Butler Hallett

You sweetheart. Thank you for thinking of me!

I e-mailed DT today. They tell me that Super Chocolate is expected back in stock mid-April.

I was drinking 4 – 6 450mL mugs of SC per day. I drank it instead of water.

I just saw a post stating that Super Chocolate should be back this week or next at latest. Hooray!
