I got this as a sample in one order from DT, and for a few months I was afraid to try it because I’m a wimp and am kind of afraid of spicy things. Chilis steeped in hot water sounded terrifying. Finally I gave it a shot, and it was good. Very very similar to Read My Lips, sans the mint notes. Same chocolate flavour, and perhaps a slightly warmer note from the chilis (although Read My Lips has peppercorns, so even this is very similar). Not spicy at all, but there’s a little more warmth and depth added from the chili I think. I also got no chai spice notes, so that is worth noting.
Overall, very tasty but I would not purchase because it’s similar to Read My Lips which I love (and prefer because of the mint).

Bio

Recently graduated sociology student trying to decide what to do with her life.
I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
