From 52teas

Chocolate Toffee Tea! What could be better?

…Chocolate Toffee Tea with real bits of Heath® bars in it! Oh and some organic cacao nibs to make it even more chocolatey!

Not much more to say about this one, but mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I like the taste of toffee, but not the hard crunch, so I was really excited to be able to try this tea thanks to Kitch3ntools!

Yummm… This smells so good! Have you ever smelled a tea that you wanted to eat the raw leaves w/ a spoon? This is one of those teas.

2.25g/6oz purified water. The liquor is a rather dark brown w/ a reddish tint to it and is topped w/ lots of essential oils from the ingredients. It looks like an oil slick, but it’s also a sign that there are lots of healthy things in this tea.

Well I definitely don’t have to worry about not tasting the camellia sinensis like I do w/ a lot of flavored, and especially black, teas. There’s no chocolate flavor and no toffee flavor. Don’t get me wrong, this is a sweet black tea, but that doesn’t mean it tastes flavored. There are lots of unflavored black teas that have sweet cocoa notes, and this tastes like one of them. I would have never guessed this was a chocolate flavored tea if I’d done a blind taste test. I’m not getting the toffee flavor either, although I think it may be contributing to the sweetness.

Conclusions: While it is a good black tea (and black teas aren’t even my personal preference), this does not live up to its name. Would be good served after a meal, but it is not a dessert tea so it could be served any other time as well.

I had a similar problem with their butterscotch chai – smelled great but the butterscotch flavor just was not there. At all. :-(

Cofftea

BUTTERSCOTCH CHAI??? YUM!=D

Janefan

yeah, that’s what I thought too.. Wish I’d kept it and experimented with the steeping a bit more to get it to taste right, but I gave it away out of frustration (this was in my pre-Steepster days)

Robert Godden

Used to have the same problem with butterscotch flavoured coffee…

S

Cofftea: Oil slick on top of toffee and chocolate tea = healthy things
Shanti: Oil slick on top of toffee and chocolate tea = melted oils from toffee and chocolate, two foods primarily composed of sugar and butter fat.

Funny how people can react to the same things in completely different ways :)

Ricky

agrees with Shantea. Doesn’t oil floating on top mean bad things? o.O

S

Lol Ricktea.I forgot, usually I see the oils if it’s a heavily flavored tea as well (flavoring oils).

silvermage2000

nice review I was curious about this tea so disappointing that the chocolate and toffee arent there. Becuase I am a big fan of dessert teas but its hard to find good ones.

Cofftea

Shanti, It also can be from the essential oils and antioxidents. That oil slick is very common in true teas although being a chocolate and tofee tea it was thicker than normal. The leaves were also greasy when I tossed them… ew.
Silvermage2000, It is a very good tea for a sweet tea- but if you want a tea you could identify as a chocolate toffee tea in a bilnd taste test, this isn’t it. W/ most dessert teas you either taste all flavoring or all tea. :-/

S

Sorry, but 1) antioxidAnts themselves do not appear in the form of oil, although small amounts have been found in food oils…you seem to be incredibly mistaken about the relative size of an “antioxidant molecule” in relation to a uL of oil, or even to a single fatty acid chain, 2) what do you mean by “essential oils”? Do you mean reduced oils from certain plants, often used as natural flavorings, or do you mean oils that are essential to health? In the first case, they are not particularly healthy or unhealthy (I challenge you to find one replicated and peer-reviewed study that says otherwise); in the second case, the oils and fats used to make toffee and chocolate are NOT “essential oils” or even “good” oils that people don’t get enough of or are beneficial to health, 3) I’m assuming that by “true teas” you mean unflavored Camellia sinensis varietals, but in my experience (and from what I’ve read from other people’s reviews of flavored teas), flavored teas are known for having sometimes seeming oily due to the flavored oils applied to the leaf, 4) the majority of the oil found in tea and indeed in most plants is located in the seed, not the leaves, 5) I’m willing to be that the oil slick was from the melted chocolate and toffee, and perhaps partially from hydrophobic flavoring chemicals.

S

ps. sorry for the long comment, but there are few things I hate more than pseudoscience, especially when the purported science can be harmful.

I’m not a Heath Bar guy but recall it as mostly toffee wrapped in chocolate. I didn’t get a sense of the chocolate in this — toffee came through though. Honestly, without the description/name I would have suspected the active flavor to be caramel, not chocolate or toffee. Perhaps it’s my palette…I did notice hints of the “protein bar” smell you’d find in your typical chocolate flavored tea, but it was subtle (much to my preference).

Anyway, I enjoyed the tea, my first from 52teas (received in the TTB: http://steepster.com/discuss/212-travelling-teabox-on-the-way ). It was very smooth, not too sweet (something I was worried about). Overall, a very nice flavored black. Excited to try more from these guys!

Cofftea

I like the taste of toffee, just not the hard crunch, so I’m excited about this! Although I’ve personally never gotten a “protein bar” smell from chocolate tea before…

teaplz

That’s EXACTLY it! “Protein bar!” That’s what’s in most of my chocolate teas! Hahaha, thanks for pointing that out! It was driving me crazy!

I also get a lot of the “Easter bunny plastic chocolate” taste from a lot of chocolate teas as well.

S

Mike, I know exactly what you mean by “protein bar” chocolate flavor! I liked Simple Leaf’s Dawn if you’re looking for chocolate tea…tasted more like real chocolate, which is strange because it’s not even flavored…

Cofftea

The only unflavored tea I’ve had that tastes flavored is Adagio’s Dancong Aria oolong. I have yet to find a chocolate unflavored tea.:(

S

I’m finding that I prefer unflavored teas that taste flavored to actually flavored teas. I mentioned Dawn above as being one that tastes like chocolate…I also liked Simple Leaf’s Maharani, which tastes spicy, and “Shanti” was very smoky, but those are two unflavored teas. I haven’t tried enough unflavored yet to give any other recommendations yet, though. :)

Ricky

This is exactly the same first tea I had from 52teas & TTB! =] What a coincidence!

Cofftea

Shanti, I agree when it comes to Adagio (the only company I’ve experienced that has an unflavored tea that tastes flavored). Dancong Aria tastes much more peachy than their white peach or oolong peach.

S

Interesting! I really like their white peach and Gemini blend (white monkey, white peony, white peach), but I thought they were already very strong, so I might not like the Dancong Aria (I always want to type Dancing Aria, lol). I prefer delicate flavors, which is probably why I like unflavored teas too.

Jillian

Cofftea have you tried Adagio’s Black Dragon Pearls? They have a distinctly cocoa taste to them I find.

Cofftea

Yes I have. While I find it a smooth taste, I don’t find them very chocolatey.

i just got this in today and was VERY excited to try it. sadly i had to wait all day. the dry leaves smell very creamy and you can smell the candy bits. the color of the tea itself is a dark amber thats a bit murkey from the chocolate. usually i dont like chocolaty teas but wow this one is delicious! its probably because of the melted toffee. i can see this super stuffed package going quick :) all the flavors work very well with each other making it a very good flavored tea.

as the tea cools it gets sweeter :) my fiancee made this for me in a 16oz mug so i have quite a bit of tea to be drinking. i feel like this will become a guilty pleasure :D (the tea not the 16 oz mug)

Cofftea

I don’t like toffee cuz I don’t like breaking my teeth on a chocolate bar, but it melts? Interesting…:)

Jason

Yay chocolate toffee tea!

@Cofftea: Where’s the fun in candy and treats if you don’t have to work for ’em? ;)

Dots anyone? Tasty but damn do those get stuck in your teeth.

Cofftea

I, too, was MASSIVELY disappointed w/ the flavor of the tea considering I wanted to eat the raw leaf w/ a spoon lol.

SoccerMom

What a disappointment! 25. I love heath bars and Skor. My husband and I have debated which one is better and then (more than once) have purchased both and did taste comparisons and we thought skor to be better.

Cofftea

SoccerMom… I have absolutely no clue what happens between the scent of the raw leaf and the flavor of the decanted tea… it was my 1st 52teas disappointment. It is a very good sweet black tea- but it doesn’t live up to its name.

AmazonV

Skor? never seen them here

SoccerMom

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skor
There very good. It’s sounds like you like Heath bars not the tea but the candy bar so I think you’d enjoy Skor.

My dad is big into bike racing and when I was little he always ate a ton of powerbars and I always used to go to hang out with him at his friends bike shop and my snack would be powerbars. So whenever I drink this tea all I can think is powerbars. It doesn’t taste like one per-say but the scent is a dead ringer. So every time I smell the dry leaves I don’t think mmm tea, I think weird powerbar. Aside from that the tea isn’t bad. I have to use a lot of tea and steep for awhile to get it to the desired strength though, but I enjoy it with a splash of milk. And I guess the childhood memories aren’t a bad thing either – haha.

Was really excited to try 52teas for the first time. I love toffee, so I bought this tea right away when I saw it on their website. I thought the smell was chocolatey but I didn’t really get a Heath Bar smell. When I steeped I didn’t get any chocolate or toffee taste. And, am I crazy? If someone had just given me this cup of tea I would have sworn it was flavored to taste like hot chocolate. Hmm…will try again in a few days. Will hold off rating for now…

I’m not getting the Heath flavor from this tea. There is maybe the faintest hint of chocolate and toffee, but it is very faint. It pretty much tastes like an unflavored black tea to me. It’s okay, but I’m glad I got it in a swap rather than buying it. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.

Excellent tea and the mix of toffee and chocolate was perfect.

I had high hopes for this tea, but they weren’t met. It’s almost like hot water with a hint of dark chocolate. You might as well take a pass and go for some hot cocoa instead. ;)

That said, the leaves themselves smell amazing, a rich chocolate smell. But in the end, taste is what matters and I wasn’t blown away.

I’ll try some variations in the steeping method later.
