From DAVIDsTEA

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)

Ingredients: Pu’erh tea, chocolate, orange peel, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Dairy

Gosh its been such a crazy day! A horse got out by my house and we had to try and get it off the highway! So now im sitting drinking this.

Its good but I don’t really get too much orange. I was hoping for more. But its still a nice rich cup.

Alphakitty

I read that as “a horse got in my house” and was really wondering how that would ever happen!

ashmanra

Same here!

Cedes

Oh hahaha yeah not sure how that would happen either.

It’s been soooo long since I’ve put up a review! Gaahh

So, I’m drinking a Christmas tea in July… yes my bag is still one that says “Oh Christmas Treat” on it… and it is messing with my head. I want to be wearing a big sweater and watching the snow out my window! Early winter/late fall is the best time of year, I think. But I feel like whatever time of year it is, I’m often wishing for something else.
So, I guess summer really isn’t that bad. Lots of produce is in season and the summer thunderstorms are awesome. And I love iced tea, even though I go through so much more tea so quickly. I’m sure there were times in the winter when I said “I wish it was summer!” so I should appreciate it while I can.

UM ANYWAY… this tea is still awesome. It’s like a grown-up chocolate orange. It came out a little bit weak/watery this time though, but still enjoyable.

Well,‘Tis the Season to be Jolly…Emilie just drank Gingerbread Chai so I’ll look for something Wintry to drink like Brandy Peppermint! Ho Ho Ho! (No I ain’t callin anyone a ho!)

I think Chocolate Orange is fine any time of year.

Daniel Scott

I still have a tin that says Oh Christmas Treat as well…I have trouble with the name change, because “Chocolate Orange” is so generic. I just continue to call it OCT.

Only one of two more cups of this one left. I may give them to Robyn, or see if I can throw them into a swap or something…

This smells really foul today – oily and fishy and gross. However, it’s not nearly as rude as far as the taste goes. In fact, it’s fairly light in comparison to the highly aromatic smell that’s filling my kitchen. So that’s not so bad, I guess.

Right now I’m just killing time while my nail’s dry – and then I’m out for the day! I have to go fill out some forms and stuff at the bank, and then I’m meeting a friend downtown at DT before we head to a metal concert. I’m gonna be pretty out of my comfort zone there, heh…

I don’t really do things, and specifically I don’t really do things in loud concert settings. Plus, I know next to nothing about metal music. But, she invited me and it is a chance to get out of the house so I guess why not?

After my first pu-erh, I decided to try a somewhat different aspect of the tea.

This is the second sample I’ve tried out of the ones sent to me by Bonnie. The dry leaf smells somewhat earthy with a nice pop of sweetness.

I took a few sips and decided to add a little bit of stevia to sweeten it up a bit. Very good! I can taste more orange and the chocolate adds sort of a creaminess that makes the tea nice and rich! The earthiness of the pu-erh adds a nice contrast to the sweetness.

Very good, thank you again Bonnie! I heard that this tea was being added to the permanent collection but I can’t find it anywhere…. If anyone has any info, please tell me, because I would LOVE to have this tea in my cupboard!

It’s not there yet Ian…I keep checking too. I’m almost out. Try adding some milk or cream next time. This is really good as a latte good and strong (anyway that’s how I like it…kinda like a starbucks latte only tea) and sweet. I let this go 4-5 minutes without any bitterness.

tigress_al

This is one of my favs as a latte for sure!!! And good to resteep as well

Lothian

It’s being re-introduced to all stores in the permanent collection as Chocolate Orange. It’s stocked at my DAVIDsTEA, so hopefully yours will have it soon!

Ian

I don’t live in Canada :( Do you know if they’re going to put it back online?

tigress_al

The girl at the store a couple of weeks ago told me that it would be back in stores and online by the end of Feb. so I hope she is right!

Bonnie

Me too!

So I started drinking this one plain, and while I enjoyed it like that (it’s earthy dark cocoa and bright but not bitter orange, and very good), I was struck by a thought.

I made homemade hot cocoa mix for Christmas gifts this year, and we definitely had a good deal left over. So, I mixed a scooper of that into my tea. And now I have something creamy, sweet, and deliciously chocolate with a subtle undertone of orange.

Thanks for the sample Shmiracles! This was fun!

bum bum bum …. the last cup of Chocolate Orange until my recently placed order arrives.
for the time being, this tea is in my top 10. easy.
i made a cup for My Boyfriend the Animator too. and previously he declared that he doesn’t like chocolate teas. but tonight he declared that he likes this one.
win!
i went to the gym tonight. i’ve run maybe 2 times over the past 5 weeks. no wonder i’m so depressed. hopefully tonight’s run will be the start of a solid and steady effort for the next 3 months.

softrevolution

I’ve been scared off by the pu erh but it sounds like I should try this one :)

Shmiracles

it’s true i do recommend it! and i love it! and hope you get the chance to taste it at least.

So with my buds being absent has an upside… I can tolerate pu’erhs now! yay :)
This was amaaaazing when hot, not so much as it cools. The chocolate and orange work really well though. Next time I’ll try it with a splash of milk!
It smelled and tasted a tad fishy, which made me a little sad. It could have been so perfect!
and it was why I didn’t bother with a resteep. So… big points for the flavour when hot… but less so when cooled down. Ah well! I’d definitely have this again. In fact I may buy a small sample once I get through the other newbie teas

Amariel

I’m hoping to try this soon. It smelled way delicious at the store in the tin. Maybe a tea to go tomorrow? Hope I can get there.

Indigobloom

good luck! I look forward to seeing your review :P

Amariel

Had it tonight! YUM!

Ugh welcome to Monday morning… I think my brain is still stuck in Saturday. I meant to bring a sample from the GCTTB with me to work today but totally blanked on that this morning. Oh well.

I really enjoy this tea, it was actually the first ever pu’erh (straight or flavored) that I tried and I love how the dark, rich earthy tones mix with the dark chocolate and the brighter orange notes. I think in my first tea log I described it as kind of a dance that the flavors were doing and it’s still so true for me. Every time I take a sip another flavor, or combination of flavors, is sitting at the forefront for me to try. Yum!

BTW, if anyone knows someone who is attempting to sell a Royal Albert Old Country Rose teapot lid (approx. 3.75inch/9.5cm in diameter which I think is for the 9cup pot) let me know… I’m trying to find a replacement for my mother’s lid (it’s cracked into 2 pieces) and given the age of the pattern it’s been a bit difficult (she’s got the original.) I’ve already tried and failed a few times, one was the wrong size and the other had a crack in it that the seller didn’t notice at the time of posting the sale. :(

Thank you, Bonnie, for yet another interesting sample. I would not normally choose a flavoured tea when there are so many flavours of unflavoured tea, but Bonnie sent me a sample and it would be rude not to try it! ;-)

Opening the bag, I am met with a strong chocolate and orange smell. Interesting. So, the liquor is a beautiful orangey-red colour, becoming close to a dark chocolatey brown as it fills up the cup. It smells of chocolate. The orange is almost an undertone. Tasting it, the chocolate dominates once more, but this time the orange and the earthy notes of the puerh are more dominant too. There is even a slight hint of chilli spice. I like this. It is like drinking a Terry’s Chocolate Orange with added puerh. Yes, I don’t think I would want to drink this every day but I could definitely see getting some of this in for an occasional treat.

Bonnie

I told you I was sending you some of everything. I picked out things that I knew you didn’t have but were pretty popular with many on Steepster. This was my very first introduction to Puerh. Without it, I would never have ventured into puerh at all!

I’m going to be one of the very few people to say this, but I don’t care for this tea at all. I find it to be… strange. The first steep, I didn’t know that you were suppose to rinse the leaves. I almost never drink pu’erhs and I didn’t see the rinsing thing anywhere on the packaging or on the website. But now that I’ve looked around a bit online, I see that, and I gotta say… that’s kinda weird.. haha
Anyway, so I tossed my first steep after I saw that, and resteeped it for a few minutes. The second steep is definitely better, but I still don’t really care for it at all. I think the earthy-ness is too much for me, and I definitely get the fishiness that someone else was talking about. I get that smell pretty good.

This came in a sample pack that I got as a gift, so I only have a little. I don’t think I’ll be keeping what little I have left. It’s too bad, ‘cause so many people rave about it. I think it’s just my personal tastes. I’m not for the more earthy smelling/tasting teas…
Sorry Oh Christmas Treat… I just can’t do it… :(

I think this is a tea where the batches were not uniform. I received three packets of this tea last year (all from different DTs across Canada) and while one was definitely fishy and unpleasant, the tea from one of the packets was amazing and truly tasted like a chocolate orange (albeit a bit “earthy”). Unfortunate :( And I didn’t rinse, as DT instructions didn’t indicate I should (although being more experienced now, I might if brewing it again).

Indigobloom

I was about to say the same as Kittenna! My first batch of this was amazing, but my second one was sub par. Actually I find that with a few DT teas. Teaopia as well, not sure if the same applies to Teavana

TheKesser

lol I just got this one again in a sample pack that my dad got for me. I’m going to try it again. This one smells very different from the last one, so maybe it’s a better batch?

Kittenna

I’ve found that with multiple DavidsTeas, sadly. Like the fiasco with ‘Oh Canada’. I had no idea how people thought it tasted so, so awful, but I’m convinced now that it was a batch issue.

I hope this one’s better!!

TheKesser

lol thanks, me too! I think I might try it this afternoon after work.

Steph73

I wasn’t liking this tea a whole lot either (got it in a Christmas sampler pack). I also didn’t realize that I had to rinse the first steep, so I will try again. I really WANT to like it, as I enjoy orange chocolate, so my fingers are crossed that once I give it an inital rinse, it might be more tasty to me.
