Received this from EmilyGee to try, thanks Emily!

It smells more chocolate/orange dry than it does when brewed. I don’t sense the orange anywhere except maybe a slight hint of citrus right at the end. But it’s ever so faint, I miight even just be willing my tastebuds to notice it.
The chocolate is there, but in a very earthy sense as opposed to the sweet commercial sense. Or it could just be that I’m not familiar with pu-erh tea and the earthiness is from that.
I don’t think it’s orangy enough for my liking, so I doubt I’d buy it in future.

I love Earl Grey teas and the addition of the strawberry is a refreshing, fruity twist to this classic tea.

Ok, so I didn’t like this tea when I had it before, but it was actually pretty great today and yesterday. Maybe it’s because I have a sore throat and the licorice is soothing? Either way, I’m enjoying every drop.

And that puts me down at 163, until my Verdant order bumps me back up!

Satisfies my chocolate cravings! I had to get used to the earthy pu’erh taste but now I like it… for what it’s worth, I do not smell or taste fish with this one.

I’ve been wanting to try this tea for a while now and was so happy to get it for a gift this past weekend. It’s a really nice cherry-coconutty tea that I like to really over steep to get the full flavor out. Great if you’re in the mood for cherry.

The container for this tea had a weird smell, but fortunately the taste of the tea was better. I enjoyed this tea it had a nice sweet taste, though I think the cookie dough taste could be a bit stronger.

YUM! I forgot about this gem, delicious and sweet. In the tin it kinda has a play dough smell but once steeped the aroma is unmistakably cookie dough :) Good to the last crumb.

Sounds like the perfect tea when you’re feeling kind of sick :)

i think this tea is best iced down and cold per the tea person’s recommendation. the other reviewer is right, more than a cup, it’s a bit nauseating since it’s so fragrant. also, after subsequent brewings, you will notice a bitter note—so don’t steep too long and ice it down! this is an once in a while type tea!

oh yes, i like this tea very very much. on any day, it is very good. seriously like the name implies, the tea carries with it a creamy taste and feel, and every time i brew this tea, i can steep several times. whatever makes it milky and silky is probably radioactive, but nonetheless, one of my favorites!

This tea is happiness in a cup. Smells like birthday cake, looks like a party and tastes like caramel cake. I’m in love. If you are looking for caramel without tobacco or smoky notes, try this.

I really like what I imagine the pu’erh part of the taste of the tea is. The rest of it tastes like, well, one of those chocolate oranges, with more orange flavor than chocolate. The tea is kind of “less-than” for me since I’m not super fond of that flavor, but I might try it again.

David’s Chocolate Chili Chai is the reason I joined Steepster … just to write this review. This tea is sublime! A little bit about my tastes: I drink coffee, love spicy foods, red wine, and chocolate. This tea is great first thing on a misty morning, or sitting at my desk on a winter evening watching the snow fall. It’s sublime. As I am writing this, I have finished my cup but the scent of this tea still lingers the air. David’s Tea should start making candles! Unbelievably yummy. Two things I would like to note: I used an 8 oz mug and I like a little more tea than the average bear: I use a tablespoon. The flavor makes the more rapid dwindling of my stash so worth it. I can always get more. And I will. :) A million stars.

I have tried this tea both as just a tea and as a chai tea as the name suggests. As a chai tea I can taste the chocolate and and just a note of chili. Nothing to make it spicy, but to just enhance the chocolate. As a tea, it reminds me of Chocolate Rocket.

Books recommended for this tea are: The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, & Mystic River by Denis Lehane

drank juicy orange by David's Tea

This was a tea of the day down at my local David’s Tea shop today. Piping hot, it tasted smooth and sweet, with a bit of sour at the finish. But as it cooled off, it tasted more like baby aspirin or Tang. I don’t think I’ll get it again.
