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

Wow! I’m not a lover of fruit and chocolate (unless it is fruit dipped in chocolate) so I was VERY surprised that I liked this one. I think I might have to pick up an actual chocolate orange to see if my feelings for them have also changed. I think I will have to rotate my Pu’erh tin between coffee and chocolate orange now.

I couldn’t find my scoop so I wound up dumping all the tea in the bottom of the bag in, and it came out as dark as coffee. XD Unfortunately, it’s quite strong and a little bitter. Still lovely and tasty, though, and better than when it was too weak.

Bumping the rating a bit.

I love the dry leaf smell, so orangey with a nice chocolate note and that earthy smell. I watched this tea brew in the cup and oh my goodness I thought I made coffee! It was SO DARK. Once brewed I could smell the earth tones the most and thought “oh no I’m in trouble…” I took one sip of it without sugar, I thought I was going to gag it was so strong! I threw 2 tsp. of white sugar in it and watered it down, a little better. It was my first time buying/making pu’erh tea so I’m fairly sure I did something wrong because no tea will put hair on your chest like this one does! Someone help me!

Like so many others I’ve reviewed thus far, this was one of the teas I’d received in the Sweet Indulgence pack from DAVIDs. This tea was one of the reasons I purchased this pack in the first place; chocolate and oranges were simply made to go together.

Once I steeped my first cup, I was a little thrown off by the smell. I actually can’t recall whether or not I could detect any signs of chocolate or orange, but I did notice a strange, unappealing smell that was really somewhat fishy. I didn’t know if this smell was something I could look past to give the tea a serious taste. Fortunately, my sense of taste overpowered my sense of smell and I was able to enjoy the chocolate and orange flavors. I found the orange flavor to linger after each sip, just as it seems to do when you eat orange flavored chocolates.

This tea made me want to seek out more teas with strong orange flavors. There will definitely be an orange tea or two in my next order.

I love chocolate oranges (the Terry ones you smash to break into pieces!) and chocolate covered orange peels, so I figured this tea might be good even though pu’ers and I have an iffy relationship. I like the taste, don’t like the smell. Here, the scent of the tea is mostly pu’er (the fishy kind) with a hint of sweetness. I really wish the chocolate was more prominent in the scent. But you do get the chocolate taste in the tea, so it’s not completely missing. Unfortunately there’s not much orange (ok, I didn’t taste any orange at all), it’s basically a chocolate pu’er, which I don’t really mind… but I wanted orange!

I don’t despise this Pu-erh like I do with Naked Pu-erh. But it’s not amazing either. The flavoring takes off the normal earthy mushroomy pu-erh kick but it definitely still is the main player. I could barely taste any chocolate flavoring and I couldn’t even tell that there was any orange in it. The tea left a weird film/taste in my mouth that could have been from the artificial flavoring. The dry leaves smell pretty good though. Thanks Emilie!

Got this one in The Chocolate Box. I think that out of all the teas in the collection, this one had the strongest chocolate taste. (Probably because it uses real, dark chocolate instead of mellowed-out & overly sweetened milk chocolate.)

The earthiness of the Pu’erh blends perfectly with the dark chocolate, and there’s a brillant orange scent and slight citrus note in there, too. Reminds me of those chocolate orange candy-things that you smack on a table to break apart the slices before unwrapping.

A very tasty flavored tea!

While I love the flavours of chocolate and orange with puerh, it turns out that I am not a fan of chocolate “natural flavour” in my teas. Once I’ve finished what I have, I think I’ll be mixing up some of my own, with dark Callebaut and dried orange zest.

(Terry’s Chocolate Oranges result in a face similar to the red one on the rating chart…)

This is one where I asked for a whole tin filled even before trying it. It came up to 154 grams. I love chocolate and orange so much that I was confident I’d like it no matter what. I wasn’t disappointed and did enjoy it quite a bit. Very rich chocolate and orange flavours. Nothing mistaken or muddled about it.

My only complaint was if I used too much tea and did a long steep, I would start to get an aritificial, almost chemical taste pop up in the orange flavour. This normally doesn’t occur when I steep it right though.

This tea makes me angry. Tea shouldn’t make you angry, right? I’m not used to tea provoking in me a burning rage. The thing is, this tea is so much better than any other chocolate based tea that I can’t help but look at my tea stash in frustrated, barely hidden contempt when I realise just how many paychecks have been halved by my buying chocolate teas that can’t even begin to be half the tea that Oh Christmas Treat is. I love chocolate, and I always seek out chocolate teas thinking “yes, this is it, this is the one that will make me swoon and say ‘you, darling tea, are as good as hot chocolate!’” Only to take a sip and sadly shake my head in disappointment.

Well, Oh Christmas Treat is not your typical tea that boasts of chocolate and leaves you looking wistfully at the box of truffles that you promised yourself you wouldn’t open until you had company over. No, it’s chocolatey. Really, gloriously, no-lie chocolatey. Terry’s Chocolate Orange in a cup. Foam up the milk for a latte and you’re not going to be remotely tempted to visit your friendly local barista for something foamy and sweet.

What’s this, it’s a seasonal tea? Oh, right, it’s right there in the name. Oh dear, I have one tin to last me the year? Anger… rising… must… ration… sweet mana… nooooooo!

Just a quick edit to express my delight that this tea has been added to the permanent collection. It will be back in stores by the end of February and I won’t have to be angry every time I ration it anymore.
