drank Chocolate Chili Chai by DAVIDsTEA
1829 tasting notes

Another tea from the Traveling Tea Box! I am trying this on behalf of my future son-in-law. He loves chocolate tea and he loves hot peppers, so I wanted to see if this is a “must have” for him. I am a wimp when it comes to hot peppers, but I read a lot of reviews that said this is only mildly spicy.

It smells good. The first tentative sips surprised me. This really is very mild. Everything is mild. The level of chocolate flavor, the tea base, the chai spices, and the chilis. The aroma is rather intriguing and is the best part of this tea. I guess I am picking up the chai spices over the top of the mild chocolate.

Since I drink my tea sans additions, I can’t say this one wins my heart. It is a decent tea but not one I would seek out, but I suspect since Gav adds milk and sugar to some of his teas he might really enjoy it that way. It would give it that “little extra something” that would make it a great cup of comfort on a cold winter day.

Has your future son-in-law tried 52teas’ Mayan Chocolate Chai?

No, he lives in Ireland and bemoans the dearth of good loose leaf tea! He is moving here soon to marry my daughter. I plan to keep their kitchen stocked with “the good stuff” now that there is a family member who loves tea almost as much as I do. Is that a good one?

Mango Diablo by David’s Tea is pretty good. Not sure if it’s still available, but I have some if you want to try it. It’s got a lot of kick – I love spicy so I love it! :)

If he likes cayenne and chais, IMO it’s pretty awesome. A bit of lapsang souchong too, so not for the faint of heart, but I really like it. It’s probably my favourite chai.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
