From 52teas

…or la petite mort.

For LiberTEAS, who wanted something EXTRA chocolatey.

Here’s our new black tea base of Chinese black tea, Assam and a hint of Darjeeling, blended with organic cacao nibs and twice the usual amount of organic flavors. This is a very heady, sensational treat you are not going to want to miss.

This tea practically leaped out to me tonight when I was looking for something out of the ordinary to sip while working on homework (exciting Friday night, huh?) The dry leaves smell wonderful, like sweet milk chocolate. The tea smells like hot chocolate, and with a little milk and just a pinch of sweetener it’s very much like sipping a nice hot cocoa. I wish it was a little more creamy, but overall it’s a nice tea treat.

-Dry blend has black tea leaves and pieces of cacao.
-Dry leaves smell like sweet milk chocolate. Tea liquor aroma is of strong hot chocolate.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium brown color.
-Heavy chocolate flavor with a sweet rich finish.
-Best with milk and the smallest amount of sweetener.
-Good tea. Heavy chocolatey dessert tea.

Well unfortunately this doesn’t taste as heavenly this time around. I forgot about it and although it didn’t oversteep thanks to the breville, I did have to stick it in the microwave. Possibly this is why it tastes slightly burnt, although it was only for 30 seconds. Leaving the rating as is for now.

On the eighth day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me…Double Chocolate Decadence!

I’ve tried three or four chocolate teas in my existence, but I’m still looking for one that’s really amazing rather than lacklustre. My experiences with 52Teas so far this sampler have been good, so I’m hoping this might be the one.

The dry leaves smell strongly of chocolate, and of something rather like wine. It’s quite a dark, bitter smell, so I’m hoping for a nice, deep chocolate taste when brewed. If it tastes anything like a bar of dark chocolate with a high cocoa solid content, which is what the scent is leading me to believe, then I’ll be a happy girl.

I was sort of expecting this to be thin tasting, but it’s not at all. It has a deep, dark, distinctly chocolate taste, but it’s not so strong that it disguises or overpowers the “tea” taste. As far as I’m concerned, that makes it a perfect chocolate tea — both elements are accounted for and have an equal part in the overall taste. A few of my friends don’t really like chocolate tea to taste overmuch of tea, but to me that’s half the point. If it wasn’t, I’d drink hot chocolate.

In summary, this is just what I wanted — dark chocolate, a nice solid flavour from the tea base, no astringency, and not artificial tasting or cloyingly over sweet. Love at first sip!

I didn’t get much chocolate flavor here—mostly just the black base. Maybe I should have steeped longer? I’ve had bad experiences steeping for more than two minutes with this base though…

Frolic

What temp did you brew at? I do it a bit under boiling for 3 minutes and have good success with that.

Jes

I brewed it a bit under boiling so I don’t think that is the problem. I will definitely try again and steep for a little longer this time though. Thanks!

Another sipdown! I have a hard time with chocolate teas because I usually find that they don’t taste like chocolate. This tea is reminding me of DavidsTea’s Salted Caramel. It’s good but I don’t think it’s for me.

Steep time: 2 mins and it was quite astringent :/
Added milk and agave.
Rating: 50.

The taste of this tea reminds me of chocolate pudding. It’s really good, very chocolatey. Black base doesn’t overpower the chocolate flavor.

I had such high hopes with a name like double chocolate decadence…but alas, the name was more appealing than the tea. For me, it just didn’t have that chocolate wow factor, too bitter, not enough chocolate. I ended up adding some sugar which helped, but still it was just okay for me.

The first time I brewed this, it seemed weak and kind of boring. The scent of the dry leaves wasn’t super strong like the other teas in the Christmas pack. The second time I brewed this I made it quite strong. Almost too strong, but I planned on adding a little cream which would dilute it and some sugar. This time it is pretty good. I taste chocolate mostly after each sip. Chocolate flavoring in tea always intrigues me, yet when I taste it, it confuses me because it is never as full of a flavor as I am used to with chocolate. This tea has a nice hearty well rounded base to it that so many teas lack and I appreciate that! It feels filling and satisfying. I’m not quite getting a decadent level of chocolate, but I taste more chocolate on the sip as it cools. I can see this tea partying it up with other flavors really well, but if you want chocolate all on it’s own, this tea is what you are looking for.

I was lucky to snag the last one bag of this one. While I do enjoy it, I think the chocolate is still in the background of this tea. It could be because I am not adding any sweetener or milk but I have had some more chocolate flavour in teas before.

I do like how the flavours mix and think it is an awesome chocolate tea. Just not as much in your face chocolate that I was expecting with the name.
