Thank you Della Terra for offering the 10 dollar Try Me packages! Very nice to get such generous samples and have the variety in trying a company I have never tried before!
This tea could be spicier FOR ME but for frame of reference people I use Insanity Sauce and eat hot peppers like candy! With that said – there IS a light spiciness to this tea and I say that even for those who do not like hot things. My hubby is very sensitive to hot spicy things so I know this is one that anyone could easily enjoy.
The chocolate is pretty good, I am VERY pick with chocolate and its not too fakey tasting but there is a slight after taste of that artificial LIKE flavor you get with some chocolate but trust me it is not NEARLY as bad as it sounds I have had some “chocolate” teas that just make you want to rinse your mouth out! This is NOT one of those!
So with all that said for me to order more of this I would need a bit more KICK from it BUT I am going to enjoy every last drop of what I do have!
Its good – the little bit of heat does sort of sneak up in the end of the sip but it dissipates really quickly too so you don’t have to worry about a spicy after taste lingering around!
Its nice. :)

Ooh I’m excited for the one now since I don’t like ÜBER spicy.

is this the insanity sauce you speak of? http://store.davesgourmet.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=DAIN

I haven’t tried this one, but, my personal favorite hot sauce is Secret Aardvark sauce which is a local fave: http://secretaardvark.com/products.html

I also really have enjoyed this Sultry Sauce: http://hungryinportland.com/2012/07/06/7-sultry-sauce-from-torchbearer-sauces/

Yes yes that is it! I have not tried the other two! I used to so enjoy trying different hot sauces but being the only one in the home who will use them they just go to waste I mean I can only consume so much. Now I keep one bottle around at a time. SIGH

Thanks for the review! After reading and hearing reviews from others that have had our Chili Chocolate Truffle, We have decided to keep the current blend the way it is BUT offer a 3X Hot Chili Chocolate Truffle. It will have a boost of the chili pepper that will not only enhance the pepper flavor, but an added heat that a lot of people are looking for!

Nice!!! :) Thank you!

I really like Dave’s Hurtin’ Habanero and it looks like they have some new products I haven’t tried yet.

I have a full shelf in my kitchen of hot sauces. I used to order from Cosmic Chile and others quite a bit. Alas, with reflux issues, I cut way back on the hot sauce when I started getting into tea.

A couple of brands of sauces that are really good (and really cheap) are Bufalo and El Yucateco. Not gourmet stuff, but good quality. Bufalo Red Jalapeno is one of my all-time favorites. They can be found in almost any Mexican grocery store and lots of regular grocery stores (depending on where you live). Sometimes Mexican restaurants offer them as a condiment.

Okay now I want some spicy food :)

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
