From DAVIDsTEA

Nuts for chocolate

David was eating breakfast: toast with chocolate hazelnut spread and a cup of oolong tea. He took a bite, then a sip. Then he got that look in his eye. A light bulb went off. Why not combine the two? Rich, dark chocolate. Smooth-drinking oolong. And just a hint of hazelnut. The result? Sweet, satisfying and a little bit nutty. It’s the perfect breakfast and the perfect tea, all rolled into one.

Ingredients: Oolong tea, cocoa husks, cocoa beans, black tea, liquorice, natural hazelnut flavouring, artificial cream, chocolate and caramel flavouring .

I was nervous about this tea after reading a lot of the reviews but I already bought it and so I thought I would give it a try. When brewed, it smelled like liquid nutella so that raised my hopes a bit but upon first sip I was definitely not impressed. Something about it seemed almost bitter to me with a hint of chocolate hazelnut. So I decided to start getting ready for the day and I left the tea and hopped into the shower. I spent the time in the shower debating about if I would try the tea again or simply throw it in the swap box. Anyways, by the time I was showered and dressed, this tea had cooled quite a bit and so I tried it again. Surprisingly I find this tea much better cooled as the chocolate hazelnut flavor is more prominent and the bitterness I was tasting in the hot tea was gone. It’s still not my favourite cup but definitely not as bad as I worried it might be.

This is kind of an of tea. The licorice was an odd addition. I am not really getting any oolong notes and the hazelnut is pretty hidden as well. However, as a chocolate licorice tea, it is fairly good.
95 degrees for 4 minutes
I am not sure how to rate this quite yet

Why oh why does this one have LICORICE in it? Blech! Dumped it in the sink after the first few sips. I only got 12g of this, so I’m not sure whether to return/exchange or to just give away…

Another one bites the dust. TWO FAILS so far. Maybe Spiced Fig won’t disappoint.
JustJames

return it is my vote, otherwise the company won’t change the blend. i got a very interesting piece of advice from a store manager years ago: money = a vote. withold it or take it back and a company pays attention. i have observed this to be true!

Amariel

It’ll have to wait til I am back from vacation, at which point, might be too late. I might just offload on a friend, but voice my dislike in person.

JustJames

i am crossing fingers for you!

Amariel

There’s plenty else I’d apply it to, but I also dislike Coffee Cake…it sounds bad to bring both back. Even if there is a small amount.

Amariel

But I’ll see what I can do…unless my friend wants it.

MissB

Yikes. I really disliked Spiced Fig myself – it just tasted like water with a touch of flavoring. Having said that, I only got a sample with my order last week, and it really wasn’t enough for a cup.

I bought some triple sweet cream coffee creamer while I was grocery shopping the other day with the intent to use it to make this tea taste better.

I made some this morning in the new tea canteen I got as an early Christmas present from DAVIDsTEA. With creamer, it’s nice and sweet — chocolate coconut and light on both flavors. I’d up the rating for the version with creamer to about a 50 — something I should have no trouble finishing now. Still really disappointed that this was so terrible straight.

Do you mind sharing if you like or dislike tea canteen. I’m about to get it its 40% off now

I love it! I bought it because it seemed more versatile than the Timolino. It keeps the tea steaming (had to put ice cubes in it and then leave the lid off to cool it down) and is leakproof. My fiance has the white one, I have the blue one. HIGHLY recommend. I did use a tea bag to brew tea in it; I don’t know how well it would work with an in – cup infuser. If that doesn’t bother you, this is awesome.

boychik

Thanks for the reply. Bought 2: red and green;)

sundaysipping

Yay! Let me know how you like them!

I will;)

I got this one in the mail yesterday and was ecstatic since I grew up on Nutella and it is still a staple in my pantry as a 20 year old. I was frightened to buy this one though after many many many negative reviews. But i decided to ignore them and order it anyways.

I took this one to work with me this morning YAY! loving my system I have. The dry leaf as I was prepping everything last night was very hazelnutty and creammmmmy! :D I was so excited to have this! My first sips this morning in the car were very nutty and after-notes of creaminess. I wouldnt say this is quite Nutella in a cup but it is definitely great!!! You get a more nutty feel and creaminess rather than chocolate as you do in Nutella. My second Steep I have to say was my favorite!!! It was pure bliss! The perfect ratio of chocolate, hazelnut and cream! My third steep after work I added some hazelnut creamer and it was soooo good to snuggle up with on the coach with my blanket and watch the 49er game as I waited for the boyfriend to come home from work. Thank you DAVIDsTEA!!! This might actually be one of my favorite’s so far. Will defintely reorder this when I am out! Staple on tea shelf that my best friends dad is building for me.

(4 of those and all of them black im sooooooo excited. Even though it wont even come close to holding anywhere close to my stash. Maybe just my staples and my millions of cups I have aquired:)

I wanted to like this, I really did. It smells like it’s trying to be Nutella. The flavour is little hazelnut, but mostly liquorice. Don’t even know why that was added, since it gives the tea a medicinal taste.
And I can’t really taste the oolong or the chocolate.

Thats a bummer. Licorice is a no go for me, I’d be so mad if I got it by accident.

Apparently it’s a sipdown! My first recorded one…

Like I previously said, I’m not a fan of a chocolate in my tea unless it’s white chocolate but I decided to give this one a try because of the hazelnut and caramel. The dry tea smelled strongly of chocolate and something else I couldn’t put my finger on. Once steeped I detected caramel and was very happy. How about the taste?

Taste wise… I don’t know. First sip was uneventful, I tasted chocolate and hazelnut (caramel ran away somewhere).. but then… something came into my mouth undetected and hit me right on the back of the tongue! What the heck was that?

Apparently it’s liquorice… and you know what… I don’t like liquorice. If this is what liquorice taste like in a tea then I must never ever buy a tea with liquorice in it. Thankfully, it’s not too prominent and interestingly enough I don’t detect it equally in every sip… It’s like a stealthy bandit, it appears out of nowhere and you never know when it’s going to show up but it makes you rather nervous. I prefer it remains in the shadows.

I’ll keep on sipping on this, who knows where it’s going to take me… but I’m glad it’s a sipdown.

A little later: It seems the liquorice bandit comes out more when the tea cools down… Must. Drink. This. Hot.

Congrats on first recorded sipdown! Even though it’s an uneventful one, lol.

My husband recently went on a business trip to Montreal and bought me 8 different bags of 25grams of tea. The majority of the holiday collection and some other bits recommended by the sales associate (he spoils me!). I was really excited about this one but also a bit nervous.

The first steep, I did 4 minutes and added sweetener. There was a slightly bitter taste to it but still enjoyable.

The second steep, I prefer. I did 5 minutes and once again added sweetener. It’s not the big punch of flavor from the first steep but is kind of like liquified toffifay, though obviously a much lighter flavor and not the yummy candy mouthful that you get with the real thing.

I’m going to attempt a third steep in a bit but I quite like this! I wonder if any of the holiday collection will make its way into the permanent line… one can hope.

Okay I’m so very on the fence with this one. To be fair it’s the licorice, I HATE black licorice with a passion that knows no bounds. I do like the cocoa nibs taste I can get out of this but the licorice is hiding in the back and playing hide and seek with my tastebuds. So I’ll rate it 50 a nice in the middle rating.

Flavors: Cocoa, Licorice

Wow.. extremely disappointed. I got this as a latte today and I had high hopes. Though it definitely fell short. First sip was good, and then came that awful liquorice aftertaste! Ew. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a tea this much, and that’s saying something. I actually bumped up my score for Gingerbread just because it was quite good comparatively.

VariaTEA

When I had this hot it was just bad and then it cooled a bit and I got a hint of the chocolate hazelnut taste they were aiming for but once it got cold it tasted quite bad so I think this will be going into my swap box

noyadefleur

It was really bad hot, but I almost found it worse once it started to cool down! I had to toss it without finishing it. :( I’m really glad I didn’t buy any.

VariaTEA

I almost bought 50 g and then switched to 25 g and as much as I regret buying that much I am so glad I didn’t get the 50 g
