From Liber Teas

This chocolate tea offers decadent, sinful chocolate flavor without the calories, plus the health benefits of Camillia Sinensis! The rich flavor of this chocolate tea is very prominent, and yet, the smooth Ceylon tea also shines through, as well as very subtle hints of vanilla.

Having now had a number of chocolate teas, I’m returning to the first one I tried with the express purpose of seeing where it fits among the others I’ve tried over the past few months. Ok, that and the fact that my compulsiveness is kicking in and it’s starting to bug me that I have some notes without ratings. I’ll be fixing that for all of them sooner rather than later.

This one is fitting quite nicely into my afternoon. It’s got a rather mild chocolate flavor, not the baking chocolate I’ve tasted in a number of teas, nor a sweet milk chocolate, but somewhere in between. I’m thinking dark chocolate, sort of semi-sweet. It does chocolate well. That is definitely the flavor that is front and center.

Sometimes I think I’m getting a rose note, other times it seems like one of those things where you think you saw something then decide you didn’t really, it was a brain blip of some kind. I get that feeling mostly mid sip, when the tea is right up against my soft palate, and I’m guessing some of the rose heads straight up into my nasal cavity. Then again, not sure it needs a lot more rose. The petals are pretty and add romance, but I’m not sure the tea is trying to be a rose flavored tea. (Maybe LiberTEAs can answer that?) I understand the reference to vanilla, it’s that chocolate/vanilla continnum I’m finding to hold true with a lot of flavors. Seems like there’s a place where they merge and become virtually indistinguishable.

The tea base is smooth and I get some sweetness from it. After tasting a number of chocolate teas, I feel I can say this is a very nice one.

LiberTEAS

Morgana: no, this is not trying to be a rose tea, the roses are added for appearance sake only. You might taste just a hint of rose occasionally, which is to be expected with the addition of rose petals to any blend because they do have a distinct flavor that translates. But, a true rose tea is one that is scented at the source (usually where it’s been harvested and oxidized) because it is only at that young stage of the tea leaf that it can fully absorb the rose essence. The same is true with Jasmine. The young tea leaves are layered with the flower petals and they absorb the essence.

I was so craving a cuppa Florence and went to my tea cupboard to make me a cup and there sat my samples from all my steeps and in front was this one. I decided to give it a shot as it is a chocolate flavored black tea. I was very excited to try it as it is made by LiberTEAS while I’ve never actually had the opportunity to try any of her teas I love reading her posts.

Anyway on to the tea the dry leaf smelled delicious like delicious enough to eat delicious. Steeped 5 minutes in boiling water and the smell is still delicious but I am now picking up on very faint hints of the rose in this blend. The liquor is very dark with hints of orange and red the chocolate taste is very good. As you all know I love me some Florence and so it’s hard for me to be unbiased when it comes to chocolate teas but I have to say where Florence has the hazelnutty chocolate taste this one has a rose chocolate taste so they are completely different chocolate teas. Enough rambling I like this tea and I have to Thank AmazonV for this sample (Thanks AmazonV).

The dry leaf blend of this may possibly be one of my favorite flavored black tea smells EVER! A milky chocolate black tea with slight rose hints….ahhhhhh!

The wet leaf blend the rose really comes out and the chocolate transforms into almost a chocolate fudge brownie type scent. I want to eat it.

It’s very dark in color and a little murky.

The liquid itself is mostly chocolate and black tea to the nose.

The taste is mostly black tea with chocolate and floral mixed in – almost enhancing the black tea taste.

This is a good tasting flavored black tea. But what I love about it most is the scent!
I received this one from a fellow reviewer and boy-oh-boy am I thankful for it!

Gander

Chocolate + Rose… sounds great, though I have yet to try it. Must smell amazing for sure, but I probably won’t be able to imagine the taste until I’ve had it!

Cofftea

Gander, it is wonderful. It’s one of my favorite chocolate combos. I love adding rose petals to chocolate berry blends as well. It’s also good in chocolate chais.

Well, I just sold the very last of this that I had available for sale, so I’m down to my own personal stash! To celebrate, I decided to brew a cup! YUMMY!

This is without a doubt my favorite chocolate tea. I probably sound biased as I say that, but, really, this is the tea that started it for me because I was trying to recreate a tea that I had fallen in love with many years ago, and the place where I got it went out of business. I tried a lot of other chocolate blends along the way, and a lot of others since then – many are good, some are VERY good… but none are as good as this. THIS is as good as it gets. Period!

Smooth, rich, creamy, delicious! LOVE IT!

Oh you tease us with this review! ;) If it’s not available anymore, we won’t be able to try it’s chocolate-y goodness! So many chocolate-flavored teas are more cocoa-like than chocolate. I hope someday you’ll consider creating more!

Steep Information:
Amount: 2 tsp
Additives: none
Water: Zarafina 2c
Tool: Zarafina 2c black-loose-med
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: Coco, smoky, sweet
Steeped Tea Smell: Light coco, Black tea, Sweet
Flavor: black tea, hint of dark chocolate
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: none
Liquor: opaque dark brown like coffee

If your expecting milk chocolate this is not your tea, it’s more a dark chocolate.

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, sweeter

Marginally better, but really, it’s lightly coco black tea, good but not amazing. Looking at the other steepster reviews got me all giddy. I was originally afraid I would love the tea and be devastated at it no longer being available. Luckily it’s a good cup of tea, but I’ll be fine without (Florence will see me though).

Resteep: same as first

2.25g/6oz boiling water. As soon as the water hits the leaves I can immediately smell the chocolate, YUM! Once steeped, the liquor is a dark reddish brown and it smells mainly of chocolate and black tea. When I taste it, as espected, I’m immediately hit w/ chocolate followed by the black tea and then a very faint rose taste that I wish was stronger. The almonds, vanilla, and rooibos don’t necessarily come across as a flavor, but rather as smoothness and sweetness. The only thing I can’t figure out is why there isn’t any strawberries in here, chocolate covered strawberries are very romantic.
