I. LOVE. THIS. It’s so good and such a treat the combination of flavours is awesome and I would definitely buy this one again. (Even better with a Lindt chocolate to go with it :) )

“It seems that cold brewing this one kept the chocolate from dissolving as much and enhanced the other flavors while making the chocolate more of an accent to the other flavors. Interesting.” Read full tasting note
So happy together
Some things are just meant to go together. Cups and saucers. Cream and sugar. Tea and cookies. And chocolate and orange. It’s a harmonious combo alright – rich, sweet and decadently dark. And this delicious pu’erh blend has it all: big chocolate chips to satisfy your dessert craving and zesty orange peel for a touch of fruitiness and spice. It’s the kind of thing you could get used to. Which is good, because you and this tea are totally made for each other. (MK Kosher)

Smells so good and tastes so good! I’ve only tried a few davids teas, but this might be my favorite so far. It reminds me of these chocolate oranges my mom used to buy us at Christmas. Drank with milk and sugar. Doesn’t even taste bad without the milk (and I like milk). No bitterness. A nice and dark color brew.
I’m not a huge pu’erh drinker, but I have to say that I was expecting more chocolate flavor from this blend based on the smell. It’s quite chocolatey when you first open it up, but very little of that chocolate flavor transferred over to the brew, which had a much more prominent orange flavor.
It definitely had that pu’erh earthiness to it (mmm, orange flavored dirt!). Since this has actual chocolate pieces in it, it does make for an oily tea that leaves a residue behind.
I’ve made it a rule to always keep a stock of pu’erh available in case I ever feel the emergency urge for a nice cup of Hong Kong style (or at least pseudo-) milk tea. Today, I went for it.
Funny, because I tried it before using this tea, but I swear something is off, not that I was shooting for authenticity here (“chocolate orange”-flavoured milk tea??). First of all, I couldn’t taste the flavours quite right— but that might have something to do with all that milk I poured in there. For one, I don’t normally have milk/cream (or sugar, really) with my tea, but… well, let’s just say something went horribly wrong with my milking technique. (Or, I shouldn’t have tried it with regular milk. Or, it could have just been a bad idea to begin with.)
It’s going to be a while before I attempt to make my own milk tea again.
