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

I do not like chocolate tea, and I really do not like chocolate oranges. So I am going to try to give an unbiased review, but it will most likely be biased.

The dry tea has small little chocolate chips in it and smells like chocolate and oranges.

The brewed tea smells like chocolate, but also has that pu-erh fishy smell. Shudders.

On immediate sip, the brewed tea tastes like semi-sweet chocolate. I would say it is more like cocoa powder than an actually piece of chocolate. Then I taste candied oranges. Then I taste the fish/seaweed pu-erh. It is almost like I am tasting 3 different teas. The tastes do not really mix, they come out at different points in the sip.

I did not like the taste of this one, due to my taste preferences, but it is a weird blend otherwise.

Tea #22 from Another Traveling Tea Box

This is likely to be my last tasting note for a few hours, I’m going to have to really scrub my ingenuiTEA out after fixing this. I anticipate the chocolate getting stuck in the mesh, but it’s probably due for a good deep cleaning anyway.

I made a cup of this for after lunch since I was having a massive chocolate craving. I’m still looking for the perfect chocolate tea that will kick my cravings, but I haven’t come across it yet. I was really surprised by the flavor of this tea, while I’m not a huge puerh fan yet, I thought it went well with the chocolate and orange. While this isn’t a tea I would generally order for myself, it was nice to try.

I did find the oil slick at the top of my cup a bit off-putting, but that could have been from the chocolate, although I notice it with a lot of DAVIDsTEAs.

Another special THANKS to Steepster Bonnie for sending me this sample! The title of this tea had my name written all over it. Chocolate Orange Pu’erh! Well, that’s not really my name…though…Stoo C. O. Pu’erh…hhmm…it does have a bit of class!

Anyhow, this tea sounded like it had all of the ingredients that I love, in tea, or anything! Chocolate and orange are a great combination. I was extremely psyched to brew this baby.

I steeped it at 212 degrees for six minutes. The instructions said 98 degrees celsius (208.4 degrees fahrenheit) but my one-touch tea maker isn’t quite that versatile. No matter, what’s 3.6 degrees between friends?

The aroma that emerged from the steeping brew was interesting. I could detect the somewhat fishy aroma of the pu’erh mixed in with a sweet orange attribute.

The color of the steeped blend was light brown with orange hues. This is what I would expect if I put orange juice and pu’erh tea in a blender.

At first taste, the pu’erh flavor comes roaring through like a freight train. Then, the orange caboose begins to bring up the rear. As I guzzled more and more, I could discern the orange/pu’erh hybrid qualities of the flavor. The taste is smooth, sweet, and fruity, with the pu’erh presence complementing it perfectly. Bitterness is completely absent.

This is a fantastic tea. I’ve already enjoyed pu’erh with coconut. I now know that orange also is a great mate for it. I am looking forward to trying more pu’erh combinations in the future!

These two flavors are actually a great match. Besides tea, this would be a great selection in a box of chocolates. Are there any mad scientist chocolatiers out there? :-)

So my day at work today wasn’t anywhere near as cold as yesterday (I got to spend my day in a little booth with a heater that somewhat works…), but I decided I really wanted to try my girls out on a tea latte – and what better way than with a tea that smells like a Terry’s X-mas orange?

I made the tea latte the same way I did last night with the Chocolate Chili Chai – which was how I watched the girl at David’s in Guildford Mall make one – adding some agave syrup to the steeping tea.

So here goes…

I love the smell of the tea once brewed, and in the Latte? Delish! This is one amazing latte! I’m sitting here waiting for my girls to try/drink theirs; cause if they don’t drink them I sure will!

This tea is a definite keeper for me – I will be picking up some more very soon (sorry wallet)…

I’m now wondering how to make the other Terry’s Chocolate orange flavours with my teas…. any suggestions of some combos to make with the Oh Christmas Treat tea?

Chocolate Rocket already tastes like the raspberry flavour of chocolate orange, but add a little of this one and I think it might be perfect :D!

Could you share more details on how you made your latte? I’m very curious to perfect my method n_-

Avrilkira

I didn’t overly measure the water or milk (I’m not a perfectionist and this from the Holiday sampler). I used about 1 David’sTea perfect teaspoon of the tea, boiled the water and steeped it in my “the steeper”. I added a squirt of agave to the steeping tea (no measure). While it was steeping, I steamed/frothed the milk in my Breville milk steamer (love it). When the milk was steamed I put the tea in my mug, added the milk and some foamed milk and topped that off with a nice fresh sprinkling from my Trader Joe’s “Sugar, Chocolate and Coffee Bean Grinder”… Hope that helps ;)

DaisyChubb

Awesome! The Steeper saves the day once again, thanks so much for sharing ^^

Now if I could only figure out how to properly clean the darn thing… my latte experience would be perfect. haha

Avrilkira

Lol! I think I saw somewhere that it does come apart…. On a side note I re-steeped this one but added 1/2 a tsp of chocolate chili chai and a little brandy to it. De-lish!

I LOVE this tea…it is a great substitute for hot chocolate, it is the taste of dark chocolate with a rich fruity orange taste…add a bit of almond milk and it is simply divine…I even steeped it a second time and it had a bit less chocolate taste, but the orange was more prominent. A good tea, I will keep it in my cupboard especially during the long Canadian winters.

One of my favorite things on the planet is the combination of orange and pu-ehr. Alas, the blood orange pu-ehr is being discontinued on David’s (I think?) so I decided to try this blend. Chocolate could only increase the deliciousness, I assumed.

Actually, the problem I’m having is that the chocolate seems to be “pooing” all over the pu-ehr, so I can barely taste the delicious tea. I’m definitely getting orange and chocolate flavor when I sip, but there might as well be almost no tea in the mix. It’s a good orange and chocolate– definitely a nice dessert tea– but I think I’ll go back to my simpler pu-ehr blends after I finish this bag. I’ll also try doing a shorter steep and see if that helps.

Ask mrmopar where you can get a blood orange puerh. If anyone knows, it will be him.

Oh my local tea shop has it, I just wanted to try David’s for some reason

It’s after me! really it is! coconut!!!!

This tea is orange and puerh not coconut. So what’s the big idea?? It smells chocolatey and earthy. The first taste is a cheery orange. And then. . . it happens. The mysterious coconut goblin finds me and messes with my tea (or my taste buds). It’s that same most awful coconuty aftertaste that is supposed to follow after a sip of coconut flavored tea. Hear that coconut goblin??? You’re hanging out with the wrong tea!

I really don’t know where it’s coming from, maybe it’s hiding in the artificial flavors somewhere. Ugh.

Thanks again Shmiracles for sending me one of your favorites. So sorry that it wasn’t a match for me.

well. i went back and read my note. and i don’t think i would put this in my top 10 anymore anyways. i’ve grown so much!
it must be in the artificial flavors. many of the david’s tea i used to love i barely even drink these days. i should probably revisit this one and get a new perspective :) i’m sure i still like it, but i bet i’ll think about it differently.

Shelley_Lorraine

Ive got a few old favorites that have dropped of my top ten list too. Strange how that works.

JennyFur

I think its because variety brings more perspective on things. When I first started I thought Teavanas Maharaja chai was the best thing ever in life. Now, not so much lol. But thats largely because I’ve tried so much tea that I like so many other things.

Holy baloney this stuff is the bees knees! Dark, deep, rich cup of heaven.
Dry: mmm chocolate pieces, orange pieces and pu-erh oh my! It smells like the taste of terry chocolate oranges. I want one now.
Liquor: Dark brown. Coffee dark almost. Small oil droplets from the chocolate I suspect. Smells like a chocolate orange. Steaming hot: I can taste a bit of the pu-erh, but it is nice. Orange is present. So it chocolate. Warm: It has a whole mouth feeling to it if that makes sense. It’s thick. and very chocolately orange. Delicious. I like it better warm then hot as more of the thickness and chocolate comes out. So so good.

Overall – permanent collection. Amazing tea for satisfying a craving, or whenever you want to drink the equivalent of unicorn tears. I suggest you buy it.

i have never quite figured out what I’m doing wrong, because it’s never tasted that great to me, yet EVERYONE raves about it!

Lynne-tea

How do you typically steep yours? I used a bodum for mine every time. I haven’t tried it in my wire basket.. Possibly you get the best out of it if the leaves have a lot of room?

Kittenna

Hmm, I’ll have to try it in my filter basket instead of a tea ball. A lot of people have been scolding me for using a tea ball lately (but it’s by far the easiest for me!) Thanks :)

Lynne-tea

Ahh yes maybe thats what is it. Some teas just need more room (not just for expanding). That would probably be the only difference between our preparation methods that could affect the taste. Even if you put the leaves in a cup to infuse, then strain that into your tea cup… the more room the better! That or maybe it’s just differences between taste buds. I hope its not and you get to love this tea too =)

I was rationing this tea because I only have 100grams and wanted to make it last. But now they are making it permanent, so I can enjoy more often!!

1st steep: 3.5 min, 96degrees, amazing dark chocolate earthy flavour, with hints of orange that are not overpowering. With a little splash of milk…WOW

2nd steep: 5 min, boiling, added a little steamed milk. The flavour is still going strong. Amazing with that extra creaminess from the milk

3rd steep: 10 min, boiling, still great flavour!

Yum! I will have to refill my tin soon!

Bonnie

I think this is my favorite tea so far and can stand up to a long steep. You are right about making this a latte…so good.

I bought Chocolate Orange as a sample from David’s Tea when I went on my trip in Ontario. It was nice to be able to go into the store for once! I was able to buy a bunch of samples that I’m still getting around to. The dry smell is great, though the flavor was a bit lacking for me. I like the earthiness of the Pu-erh with the chocolate orange though! Though it’s nice, I don’t think I would buy any more after this runs out.
