my favourite of the DavidsTEA’s holiday teas! it’s especially lovely with some hot milk.

Hot, hot, hot
Is winter giving you the shivers? Try this fiery southwest chai. A blend of black tea, chocolate and ancho and Aleppo chilis, it gives new meaning to the term “hot chocolate.” With its sweet, rich chocolate flavour and feisty finish, this bold blend is perfect base for the ultimate latte with a little frothed or steamed milk. If you really want to feel the heat, add a splash of cinnamon whisky. Arriba!
Ingredients: Black tea, chocolate bits, red peppercorns, lily petals, aleppo chili, ancho chili, natural and artificial flavouring*.

I’ve been waiting for this tea all year. I picked up a cup last year, but they ran out of regular supply before I had decided on buying a few ounces.
The strongest chocolate flavour I’ve ever found used in a tea (their other chocolate teas don’t seem quite as strong), although it and the spices COULD be stronger, but the smell is delicious and what I get in the taste is lovely too. Very reminiscent of the two-bite brownies.
My mother tried to make off with my cup.
I got this as a sample in one order from DT, and for a few months I was afraid to try it because I’m a wimp and am kind of afraid of spicy things. Chilis steeped in hot water sounded terrifying. Finally I gave it a shot, and it was good. Very very similar to Read My Lips, sans the mint notes. Same chocolate flavour, and perhaps a slightly warmer note from the chilis (although Read My Lips has peppercorns, so even this is very similar). Not spicy at all, but there’s a little more warmth and depth added from the chili I think. I also got no chai spice notes, so that is worth noting.
Overall, very tasty but I would not purchase because it’s similar to Read My Lips which I love (and prefer because of the mint).
mmm, lucky me! my David’s order came yesterday, just in time for a big snow storm today!
ordered this one because it’s soon going to be an online exclusive, so i wont be able to just get a little bit to sample when i get around to going on my DAVIDsTEA pilgrimage! (the closest one is 2 hours away ;) )
so! the tea! (one can never have too many chocolate teas) i was interested to see how a ‘chocolate chai’ would work! it definitely does smell very chocolatey and a bit spicy.
not very much heat coming through with the chilies and peppercorns though, this tastes an awful lot like Love Tea #7, but better, just that slight tingle afterward. maybe i’ll steep it a bit longer next time to see if that brings out the spice more
it is very good though! nice, fun tea to warm up with. i know i am very appreciative on this blustery day!
Got a free sample of this with my recent order of Pumpkin Chai from Davids Tea. Thank you!
Just the right balance of black tea, chocolate, and that spicy kick-to-the-tastebuds. I enjoyed two cups of this delightful tea—one with a bit of milk and honey, one without. Prefer the former, but the latter was very nice, too.
So I spent a very cold day working outside in the cold, wind and rain today (to those that don’t know in Lower Mainland, BC anything colder than 5*C is to the bones chilly as it is a damp wet cold!). Had to go to a meeting right after cold day at work, and got home wanting a hot drink to warm me up…
Enter the Chocolate Chili Chai! I had this tea as a tea Latte made at my local David’sTea on Remembrance Day and really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much that last night, before my training session at my gym, I went and purchased a milk frother!
So excited to try out a homemade Chocolate Chili Chai Latte, off to work in my kitchen I went. Took me a few moments to figure out the milk frother… and then I was down to business!
So EASY to make! Smelled like HEAVEN! Tasted….. Dare I say? Better than S… E… X…?
The first Chocolate Chili Chai Latte was amazing. So good that 20 minutes after I was done the first drink I had to go and make another! I resteaped the tea from my first drink and although not as strong as the first drink, and not as chocolatey, it was definitely just as good!
Out of the Winter Teas that I have so far tried this is my favorite and as much as my wallet is going to be groaning… I will definitely be buying a tin!
I really love the smell of this tea, it reminds me of Read My Lips, but without the mint. I never thought I would be into chocolate teas, but here I am, indulging in a lot of them. The taste is a robust one, with the chocolate flavour which comes out quite nicely. I could not taste the zing or heat that people are talking about and looking in my teabag, there is evidence of chilis in it. I am hoping that my spoon was just a terrible one. Otherwise, I really love the taste :)
I’ll be honest. I bought this because the novelty appealed to me. I got it home and steeped it though, and it’s not like anything I expected.
The chocolate is very much present, and the chili keeps things really interesting without actually being spicy (I drank this with milk and sugar, so that may have to do with it). I’m really liking it – it’s slightly sweet and chocolatey but not too sweet and chocolatey, if that makes sense.
Man, I’m bad at describing this. It’s just good.
Oh, and though it’s not that spicy, don’t drink it if you have chapped lips. Ow.
So I took a trip over to Davids Tea today, while running errands at my local mall, and decided to check out the new winter collection.
I picked up a bunch of tea samples (10 grams each of Coffee Cake, White Chocolate Frost, Alpine Punch, Gingerbread, Choconut Oolong and this one – Chocolate Chili Chai).
Once steeped for 5 minutes, I had to take a sip to taste it plain.
Black tea just doesn’t do it for me plain. I need some sugar to bring out the flavour and a dash of milk too.
I can feel a little bit of the chili heat in there, on my tongue a little, and it’s very smooth.
I like it. But I can only go with trying out different teas, and not commit to just one tea. That commitment is for straight-up green tea as my go-to.
