It’s a quite tasty chai tea with a very mild chocolate flavour. I prepared it with water and milk (1:1 ratio).

Aaand it’s gone! I really liked this chai. Usually all chai’s taste the same to me but I love the chocolate in this one :3 This one is strong in the cinnamon and clove but the milk chocolate flavor mellows the spice and kind of rounds it.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Sugar
As far as the chai, nice medium spices. I’ve been having too many overly spiced chaos lately. The chocolate, not bad. I taste it… enjoy it, am glad to have it. I really like chocolate teas lately. Not that it really needed it but I added a couple drops of chocolate stevia. Yum, yum!
I was surprised to see that 2 tsp. were recommended for 8 oz. Really quite a nice cup. I’m glad that the Teeny Tiny TTB had a large sample. Definitely a tea I will be keeping from the box!
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Ginger
Sipped down two teas today and got two more so numbers just stayed the same. Ahh well. I’ll get through all my sipdowns eventually! I actually decided to rearrange my teas since I just moved in and.. dude. I have so much tea. I haven’t had a lot of them and I feel terrible! Oh well. I have a couple tea boxes coming in so I’ll take small samples of a bunch of teas, and I’ll replace it with tea I have a lot of, so I can get the amount down to sipdown status or something :)
I actually have no idea if I’ve had this tea before? Like it was in my sipdown pile, but I have no idea if I just sent this tea out to a lot of people.
Nice aroma. Chocolatey and I smell that good spice :)
Ehh. It’s just okay. The black base is a bit week, or the chocolate probably toned it down a bit. It does have a nice chocolate taste, and a bit of the spice. Tastes like the cinnamon sweet potato mash that my uncles sister made for Thanksgiving last year. Reminds me a bit of that chocolate orange spice from Teavana that I tried from the Teeny Tiny Tea Box! Good, but not great.

So, I’m not getting too much chocolate from this… mostly just the spices from the chai. But either way, it’s quite good, but I don’t think I’d get this one again. It’s a nice mild chai, but I think I prefer the boldness of something stronger.
EDIT: My second steeping was really good too!! I’m quite happy with it. Maybe I would get this one again… haha
This was one of the first teas I ever tried and two years later, here I am finally finishing my sample. My opinion is the same as it was back then. As a chai, it’s delicious and I really enjoy it. As something chocolate, it’s a massive disappointment. It tastes good, especially considering I’m drinking it like a regular tea and not like your typical chai with milk, but when something says chocolate I want chocolate. It’s hard to rate as a result; it’s good, but I’d like it so much better if the label didn’t say chocolate.
drank this for breakfast and then packed a few scoops of it into a gift box for my mom’s birthday. oddree is currently on vacation in europe and she wasn’t gone for even 15 hrs before she texted me a photo of some tea and cake. #doingitright!
jump62359 gave me this sample a while a go. like a loooong while ago. in fact i have a lot of samples to still try and a lot of teas to backlog all from a cluster of swaps that happened maybe over 7 months ago. I really HAVE been DRINKING TEA this whole TIME! just not logging it very much. temporarily not logging it.
anyways. i had a cup and watched an episode of The Ultimate Spider Man cartoon. in it Coulson was being adorable and griping about the school budget and then i went to work and channeled Coulson as i reconciled budgets. this is harmonious living. :)
This is a good chai. The spices are distinct. However, I am puzzled because of the word “chocolate” displayed prominently in the name, and which, in the first place, prompted me to try it. There isn’t detectible chocolate here, and I brewed it a couple of times. Apparently, chocolate is not an easy flavor to convey in tea. Don’t get me wrong; I like this black tea. But the company should remove “chocolate” from the name. It could be misleading because the focus is not on the chocolate.
EDIT: I had only had this tea hot. To be fair, I’d like to edit my tasting note. When fully cold, I could feel a subtle, almost woody chocolate flavor. Interestingly, when it’s completely cold, the spices were not as prominent as in the hot tea.
I really like the idea of this tea but the actual tea was just okay. I enjoyed it. It was good. But it didn’t excite me or make me want to make sure I keep it on hand at all times. I will probably try to add a little milk to it next time and see how I like that.
