drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
125 tasting notes

smells amazing, just like a chocolate orange. i have dreams of using this tea in a chocolate chip orange muffin recipe (steeping the tea in the milk first).
i was going to save this one for christmas morning, but then if i fall in love with it, what if it’s sold out by then!
well, lets see…
definitely an orange flavour with chocolate underneath. truthfully the first pu’erh tea i’ve tried, so i can’t honestly say whether or not i can taste it over the chocolate and orange.
overall a nice, interesting seasonal tea, but i can’t see myself stocking up on it

Update:
trying again because i am just so in love with the idea of this tea… and it would be safe to love the tea itself now since DAVIDs made it permanent. (1/2 tbsp, 3 min 15 sec, 200F) playing with steep times to try and figure this one out. there’s that distinct pu’erh flavour that i don’t get in any of my other teas (i now know what it should taste like ;) )
but really i’m still not getting as much chocolate as i would like, though what is there compliments the tea base really nicely.
i don’t know. i think it’s just not meant to be. though i made the cupcakes and they were delicious, so maybe if i end up getting a bit more it will be strictly a ‘baking tea’?
we’ll see…

i love almost every kind of tea, though i enjoy greens and black teas the most. fruity, citrusy, or spicy warm flavours will score high with me. i’m also a sucker for pretty packaging or interesting names, and i like to believe that medicinal teas really do work
