Jillian sent me a few bags of this tea to try, since I’ve been drooling over her tasting notes about it. Thanks, Jillian!
This smells incredible! The scent is nearly identical to the chocolate oranges that are sold around the holidays. And I daresay I’ll have to pick up one soon…this smell could cause a craving!
The chocolate is not as strong when it comes to taste, though. It’s a very subtle chocolate taste. Orange definitely dominates, and the green tea is rather good. Actually, the taste of this reminds me of a white chocolate orange candy bar that I had when I was in England…the British chap I was semi-dating would bring me random chocolates/candies that he thought I should try. I remember him handing this bar to me and thinking “who puts orange in white chocolate”. Aw, I haven’t thought of that in ages. Wish I knew the name of that candy bar, too.
I won’t say that this is the best orange chocolate tea out there, and if you’re looking for milk chocolate taste, I’d look elsewhere. But if you look at it as a white chocolate orange, the taste is much more accurate. And I quite like it.
