Thanks so much to Raritea (and Indigobloom?) for grabbing a gift box of this tea for me!

I’m pretty sure that I’ve had roasted cacao shells in tea before, but I haven’t ever had an infusion of JUST roasted cacao shells. I had no idea how this was going to taste (but I had high hopes!)

Anyways, so I was brewing up a bunch of teas, and noticed this intense, delicious chocolate smell wafting over. Like an amazing dark hot chocolate. Sometimes this happens in my kitchen (random smells), so I didn’t think a great deal of it until I went over and noticed that the smell was emanating from this cup! (You’d think I might have figured this out sooner, given what I was infusing!) So yes, cue SUPEREXCITEMENT to try this tea!

So as soon as it was cool enough, I took a sip… and HOLYCRAP! This is so incredibly good! Looking for an authentic chocolate flavour in tea? Well, here ya go! This tastes like unsweetened dark hot chocolate. But it’s not bitter, it still has a sweet edge, making it super drinkable. Seriously, this stuff is amazing! I’d drink this over hot chocolate any day, because it has got to have far fewer calories (I’d assume zero, but it’s way too delicious to be zero… but that would be so awesome…)

I am going to have the boy try some of this sometime this weekend, as he loves hot chocolate. I expect he won’t really like it, because it won’t be sweet/creamy enough, but I still am going to have him try it, haha. I really need to get some more of this delicious stuff…

ETA: Second infusion still has enough flavour to be enjoyable. I still can’t get over this tea (ok, tisane). It’s literally like drinking liquid chocolate. Liquid cocoa powder, I guess, but without any of the nasty powderiness (that said, I wonder if an infusion of cocoa powder would have essentially the same flavour? Would have to infuse it in a VERY fine filter though, to prevent sediment.

Hmm…

Be careful…it has a laxative effect in some people. (You just gave 100% to a non-tea might be a first.)

Kittenna

Sil – I don’t have enough of this to share, since I want the boy to try it and only had enough for 2-3 cups to begin with. However, we need to find a source of this! If not Chá tea itself (Raritea/Indigobloom can shed more light on where we could get more, I’d imagine).

Bonnie – you’re right, 100 to a non-tea! I think it’s because I have been dying to find something I could use as a replacement for hot chocolate, and no “chocolate” tea I’ve tried has come close (except for a tisane I had from LiberTEAS, which I’m quite certain contains a good amount of this stuff.) Also – I didn’t notice any laxative effect, but did only drink a single cup, so probably not enough to cause any harm. Good warning though, because it’s tasty enough that I could go through quite a lot of it…

Bonnie

I like this used instead of artificial chocolate flavoring by far!

Indigobloom

I tried one of my samples with milk and a dash of sugar…. heavenly! Glad you like it!

Kittenna

I wasn’t super clear on where you guys got this – as in, I want more……

Indigobloom

We got this at the opening for Cha, sortof like Amoda but for nebwies. BUT the guy who runs it also owns Herbal Infussions and he sells it there to. I’ll see if I can grab some for you!

Kittenna

No hurry! Just wanted to make sure it was locally available. Whew :P

Indigobloom

kk! I want some for myself to so its an excellent bulk purchase opp!!

Kittenna

Ok, good to know! If you could find out cost that would be great :)

Sil

It’s 14.95 for the tin with the sachets….can’t easily see if they sell it loose but I vague remember that they do. I can always go down there this weekend and get some so ppl have it for next weekend

Kittenna

No rush, really! :P

Sipdown!

Thanks to rarietea for a sample of this one! I’m not sure if herbal infusions is selling this at their store or if its another version of this but I want more. It’s totally like when you make hot chocolate from cocoa powder on the stove top. I’m sure if I added just a bit of sugar it’d be exactly like that. But I don’t want the sugar, I just want the roasty goodness of this. Oh this is super tasty if that’s what you’re looking for.

Also, the sample packaging was super cute. Little glass bottle with a cork top!
