Queued post, written April 9th 2014

This one came out of the EU Travelling Teabox round 2.

It smells wonderfully of cocoa, but not really chocolate unless you consider that really high cocoa content chocolate which is so dry as to be almost inedible. I had an 98% one once. It was good for baking, but I tried eating a small piece and it was like a spoonful of cocoa powder. Just because it contains just enough cocoa butter to make it form into a chocolate shape doesn’t make it chocolate, I learned. It can’t have sold well, because I’ve never seen it again since. Anyway, that’s what this smells like. I’m not picking up anything at all in the citrus family or from the base, but I believe it’s simply the very strong cocoa covering it up.

Flavourwise… My mouth is not happy. It’s not outright nasty, but my mouth is definitely not happy.

It doesn’t taste like chocolate and it doesn’t really taste like orange. It just nearly tastes like these two things, but that’s not the same thing at all. As it cools the chocolate bit becomes a little more like chocolate but the orange bit becomes simultanously a little less like orange.

No, my mouth is not happy at all.

My husband would enjoy this if he could drink it. Alas, it has dairy so he can’t. The orange flavor is very subtle compared with the chocolate. Which is probably good because using real orange slices to flavor things (when they are dried) can be tough. Most of the time they end up bitter.

In addition to Butiki’s Three Friends, this is the chocolate-orange tea I most often see on my dash, so I wanted to try it out.

The scent of the dry tea has a tang that balances precariously between candied orange peel and artificial orange – it can’t quite make up its mind. Brewed, it gains a dimension of chalkiness – I’d say this is a recurring problem with chocolate-flavoured anything, but in this case it’s a little too present to be agreeable.

When it comes to the flavour, though, it’s surprisingly good at first – I would definitely eat this if it were a cakey or steamed pudding-y dessert. The chalkiness comes back in the aftertaste, however – not quite with a vengeance, but it’s undeniably there, accompanied by the half-candied, half-artificial orange.

For the second time today, hence, I conclude that chocolate teas aren’t really for me.

Thanks for sharing, KittyLovesTea!

Chocolate teas are not among my top list neither. Finding a very good one is rare and I appreciate to have found some like Thé du Loup and wedding Impérial

Ysaurella

and celebration ! :)

Anna

See, Wedding Impérial is perfection, in my opinion – but that’s not a chocolate to me, as much as it is a malt.

Ysaurella

it’s a caramelly chocolate tea ;)

Anna

Yeah, it’s WI’s fault I started trying chocolate teas again – but it has to be that kind of cocoa-esque, deep, dark, malty chocolate… and it’s the only one I’ve found. Not that I need another, now that I have WI. <3

There is also American Breakfast… I love American Breakfast, for me it is a chocolate tea, though I think supposedly it has no chocolate (though seriously, it HAS to have).
