Optimistically, I was hoping this would be like one of Terry’s Chocolate Oranges but should have known I was setting myself up for a downfall.

I decided to steep this for 10 minutes because I find it really helps with rooibos blends. The flavor here is VERY strongly orange, especially since there are chopped up dried orange peels in the bag. I would say the chocolate is much more of a secondary note, it is present in the background after you get hit in the face by the orange…. :))

It is slightly sweet and better with a bit of soymilk. I didn’t like it as much as I was hoping I would but will probably finish off the bag I got. The good news for rooibos haters is there isn’t an overwhelming rooibos flavor here because the orange obliterates it…

I swear that Terry’s had a dark chocolare raspberry at one point.

I’ve seen a couple reviews today about orange not working with rooibos-it never has for me unless the peels are part of a masala chai.

Have you tried Davidsteas Chocolate Orange tea? It’s the closest I’ve found to tasting like a real Chocolate Orange

TeaBrat

no, I have not!

I would send you some if I had anymore left! :( You should definitely give it a try

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
