Chocolate, Spice, and Everything Nice

I really enjoyed this tea on my first try. I smelled the unsteeped tea in the store and was immediately drawn in by the spicy chocolate aroma.

Much like the Super Chocolate from DavidsTea, Dr. Chocolate has cinnamon and chocolate flavours, however Dr. Chocolate has the wonderful additions of spices such as ginger and cardamom. Once steeped, the other spices in the brew really come out and it smells even better than before. I didn’t think I would like ginger and chocolate together, but the smell is oddly comforting and the flavours are all very complimentary. This tea is delicious, it has a great nutty chocolate taste without being the overbearing chocolate taste that can be found in other chocolate teas. The spices are really nice together with the carob (what gives the tea its chocolate flavour) and the cardamom isn’t overpowering like it is in some other teas.

Overall, I really enjoyed this tea and will definitely be going back for another try.

Almonds? Yes please!

Love this tea. Some say amaretto, which I understand, but I personally find this tea more like a fruity marzipan. Delicious, this tea delivers everything it promised in the description, it’s sweet (without anything added) but not too sweet, nutty, slightly fruity, and warm from the spices. Good thing it’s caffeine-free, because I want to drink this tea morning, noon, and night!

Not just for Christmas!

Santa’s Secret is one of the first teas I ever purchased from DavidsTea and I am just as happy with it now as I was those many years ago. One of my favorite combinations of mint with black tea, Santa’s Secret is a playful and delicious brew that I personally enjoy all year long.

Unsteeped, the tea has a strong smell of sweet peppermint and vanilla that initially drew me in. Once steeped, the tea has a strong peppermint flavor from the leaves, a light sweetness from the candies, and of course the rich, bold flavor of Chinese black tea. Unfortunately I find the vanilla flavor is less prominent once the tea has steeped which was a bit of a disappointment, but the end product is so delicious that I am willing to overlook the loss.

Overall, Santa’s Secret is a lovely, lightly spiced black tea which brings forth memories of Christmas and candy canes which is enjoyable either hot or cold no matter the season.

I was very disappointed by this tea on my first try. I was excited to see it on the DavidsTea website and couldn’t wait to get myself down to the nearest store in order to try it. I was very underwhelmed when I smelled the tea before steeping, I smelled a lot of chocolate and not much of anything else; however, I decided to give the tea a fair chance because the concept sounded so good. I tried the tea hot and it tasted just as bad as it smelled. It was reminiscent of the chocolate-scented markers I had as a child growing up and I could not dettect even the faintest amount of chili.
Overall I did not enjoy this tea, however I plan on trying it at least one more time before writing it off for good.
