drank Chocolate Delight by Tealux
482 tasting notes

BAM! Now THIS is what I call a chocolate tea!!!

Got my first Tealux order in the mail last night…super quick shipping, btw! I couldn’t believe how big the sample sizes were…probably almost 1 oz! I ordered more than a sample size of this tea, I think because the sample size wasn’t available, but I’m so glad I did! Now for some context, I’ve been struggling with chocolate flavored teas. They just never meet my expectations…most taste a bit chemical, or there’s hardly any flavor at all. Some chocolate teas use cocoa nibs, and I never really get chocolate flavor from those. Cocoa shells seem to be better. Overall, I’ve been disappointed.

This tea, however, is IMO the mother of all chocolate teas! Yes! That is what I said!!

I even brewed this at work in the stupid microwave and it was fantastic!

So, once i brewed it up, this tea smelled exactly like hot cocoa. My coworker confirmed this, so it’s not just me! It also tasted exactly like hot cocoa! Amazing!! I thought it was weird that it had yogurt bits in it, but they must do something to make this tea work, so I’m not complaining! I enjoyed this with milk and sugar, btw, because that’s how I do things!

I’m so happy with this tea. The search for a good chocolate tea can end now. Not gonna even waste my time with the ones I don’t like now, because I know there’s something better! I can’t wait to try my other Tealux teas, because if they’re as good as this one, I’m in for a treat!!

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
