When I saw TeaFairy’s review, I realized I hadn’t posted anything on Raspberry Chocolate Bark,though I’ve had it on the shelf for a few months. Since TeaFairy did a great job of describing it, I can’t add much more. I’ve tried several Teajo flavored black teas, and the fact that their single estate Assam base is good and is not overwhelmed by the flavors makes for a great cup of tea. Chocolate and raspberry go hand in hand beautifully in desserts, and the same goes for this tea, making it a very satisfying dessert tea. I’ve found that their teas are excellent hot or cold. You can get 10 cup samples for $2.95, giving the opportunity to trying several flavors. Their teas are organic as well.

Donna, you are right about hot or cold:-) When I have my pot of tea at night, if I’m trying a new tea, I always keep some for the next morning to see how it compares as an iced tea. This one was delicious, more raspberry emerged. It will be interesting to try a cold brew eventually. I’m thinking it will turn out more fruity and less chocolaty that way. I’m also liking their Lemon ginger Sencha, so refreshing as an iced tea!

organic… that is great!! this sounds really tasty

teajoteas

This seems to be a trend with many of our Assam based teas, that the flavoring really comes out when you ice it. The tea itself has a bold flavor whether iced or hot, but anything added gets emphasized when chilled.

@teajoteas I’ll have to keep this in mind when I place an order to try it chilled. I’ve only been doing hot tea lately.

Somehow I mixed this and Della Terra’s Peppermint Bark up together. How? Uh.. I dunno, because they taste quite different from one another.

It smells perfectly of raspberry chocolate in the bag and brewed. Drinking it alone, with zero additions, left me desiring something more though. It’s really, really dry. I get the cacao in here, which adds to the dryness, but this is a bit extreme for me. Some Truvia makes it more creamy, much less dry, and I can taste the raspberry more, especially a few seconds after the sip. My mouth is literally so dry now though, I’m challenged to really enjoy this cup at all. I can also taste the base a lot more than before.

I received this from MissB’s tea stash sale. Thank you!

This was quite the treat! This tasted like my favorite raspberry hot chocolate without the guilt!. This was a little week, but I blame that on my under leafing. I will try this again with a tad more leaf, milk and sugar for a yummy dessert.

Yvonne

This sounds delectable – I wish I could taste it!

This came my way as part of the Pageant of Winter Teas – thanks, Piccolo!

Opening this package was like unpacking a stocking on Christmas morning. The dark chocolate and plant-based raspberry flavoring work beautifully together to bring to life one of my favorite holiday treats! I didn’t really taste the base as much as some of the other reviewers (different steeping methods?), but the chocolately-goodness of this blend more than made up for it!

4/5 (see my bio for more info on my new pared down scale)

This is a damn fine dessert flavored tea, I must say. Lately I’ve been lukewarm about that category in general because of the weather and my growing exposure to premium pure tea leaves, greens, and oolongs (what a wonderful spring and summer of discovery it’s been—thanks Steepster!), but I’m PMSing like whoa (guess what I thought would be a good lunch today? A bowl of potato chips and a square of dark chocolate…after I ate it I was like “ohhhhh so THAT’s why I’ve been so cranky and teary lately” duh!) and every other sample from Teajo I’ve tried so far has been great so…and yeah, as with all the others I’m very impressed. The aroma and flavor is strong, present, but never fake or chemical tasting, with lovely balance between sweet-tart berry and thick bold chocolate, yum. Furthermore the tea base is very decent (not always the case with sweet flavored teas!), assertive enough to hold its own and not get lost in the shuffle without being harsh, bitter, or so bold as to clash with or distract from the flavoring. As it’s not wimpy, it also handles additions well—I splashed my second cup with a bit of almond milk and that was delicious too.

Pretty smooth, rich stuff. Definitely evokes desserts with this flavor combo (one of my absolute favorites by the way, especially since usually when raspberry’s put in chocolate desserts it’s a given the chocolate’s going to be the deep dark kind, stuff like flourless cakes and tortes, YUM)—right down to a sort of luscious, berry jam mouthfeel. The best raspberry chocolate tea I’ve tried for sure, and I’ve a feeling it’ll be hard to top.

A sample of this from the lovely TheTeaFairy. merci beaucoup! Smells delicious and it is true to its name (I see iPad is having trouble with “its”, doesn’t want to let it go, keeps switching to “it’s”).

I much prefer Dolce Vita from rivertea when it comes to raspberry. Because that’s like raspberry juice whereas this is more… Chocolate raspberry. However, it is entirely a mood thing. Like, occasionally I wish for Love Tea #7 from DAVIDs, because of the chocolate and strawberries. But if I wanted juicy stuff, I’d go for Bear Trap or something.

Is this good? Yes. But you have to want chocolate more than raspberry.

The wonderful, generous TheTeaFairy sent me a sample of this. I know she loves it, and wrote “by far my favorite raspberry tea”. I just got my Lupicia order and now have their raspberry chocolate tea too. I wanted to try them close together to see how they compare.
I steeped some of this one last night – don’t listen fairy – and I didn’t like it. I know it’s dark chocolate – but it was TOO DARK for me, bitter chocolate (I don’t think it was the tea being bitter) – I actually added some sweetener to try and back the chocolate down. Yes there was raspberry but I couldn’t get past the chocolate. Nope, not for me.
Today, I made the last bit of the sample, and it is MUCH better – I don’t know what I did different. It’s still dark chocolate but not in your face bitter like it was last night. The raspberry is nice, not overly sweet.
I’m just confused now – two days, two totally different experiences. I’m voting – I don’t like this – too fussy but would be willing to try it again if I had the opportunity. Sorry fairy. :((

If it helps? I had a similar situation with this exact tea. Once, I loved it, another time, it just was.. too dry? Hard to explain.

I’ll preface this with the acknowledgement that I’m not generally a big fan of chocolate in my teas…but with that said, this is a damn tasty tea.

The raspberry comes through cleanly and the chocolate sits as a sweet little background note that fleshes out the robust, earthy tones of the black tea base. A little added sugar keeps the flavours mellowed out and it’s a surprisingly enjoyable cup.

I cold steeped this last night, and I honestly wasn’t expecting much from it.

Now I am eating my preconceived notions as I sip away at this magical something that tastes like dark chocolate raspberry truffles and liqueur. This teas is so satisfying and better than what I deserve right now (I need to get myself working).

I’m not sure if the deliciousness will carry through on a hot steep but this iced beverage is top class.

aww, not better than you deserve. We all need an unexpectedly refreshing and delicious cup.

Thanks, keychange! I feel like I’m rewarding myself for being unproductive with this one.

It’s beautiful. What else to say? Tehe… I made a whole pot of it. I’ll probably be up to like 3am, but NO REGRETS.

I kept putting trying this one off because I actually bought a full 2oz without trying it first based on recs, BUT had been disappointed in the other samples I’d bought at the same time. I’ve been going through Adagio’s Valentines regularly recently, but after a whole weekend of it, I wanted something a bit richer in the tea taste, but wasn’t in the mood for a green.

One of Teajo’s big selling points I think is that they take care to make their flavored blends with a nice base. I definitely get that with this one. While it’s olfactory appeal is wonderful- very chocolatey and berry and tea-y, the tea taste and mouth feel is not at all disappointing, and this one had alot to stand up to because I had come from finishing McD’s strawberry covered frappe. For me, coming from something like a frappe- espresso+creaminess+sugar and not being disappointed by a flavored tea is wonderful.

Not only for the olfactory side, also the rich mouth feel from the creaminess of the frappe wasn’t harshly cut like some teas can do. The mouth feel was rich and full, and at first mingled nicely with the leftover richness of the dairy and yet left the mouth with nice clean tea feel after without the dry feeling you can get sometimes. (I have no idea if this paragraph made any since. It’s soo difficult to describe!)

I’m soo incredibly glad I didn’t get a horribly synthetic raspberry flavor with this, I generally hate raspberry flavored/scented things for that reason, no one gets it right…. and consequently I had developed an aversion to the fruit even because in my head it was always soo awful- another reason I had hesitated on this tea. The raspberry flavor to this one is warm and not too sweet. Even as not a fan of raspberries in general, I can get behind this tea.

Overall, it’s wonderful. A side benefit is that it’s organic if you’re one to care about those things. The way it’s set up is that it’s flavor profile is similar to Adagio’s valentines, but the tea base and flavor blending is like 6x better. I love it. However because Valentines is similar enough in profile and offered at a lower price point, I’ll probably keep that one in regular rotation, while I hoard this one. It’ll be a special occasion tea or a ‘I need a nice tea to cheer me up’ type of event… At least until I get to the point where I’m spoiled enough by nice tea I won’t even bother with Adagio anymore. This Teajo’s creation is definitely on that next level.

This tea gets a happy face. =D
