I’m hit or miss with Tealux flavored teas. This is ok. I think it’s more chocolate than chai and the pu’erh base adds depth to that.
Dark chocolate with some spice, that’s what this is to me. Nothing offensive, but just ok….

This exclusive Tealux blended Pu-Erh Chocolate Chai is the perfect alternative to overly sweet hot chocolate and cocoa drinks.
Mellow, velvety and smooth, this chai consists of an enticing and pungent combination of organic Pu-Erh tea, shade-grown yerba matè and cacao. Inviting, warming notes of deliciously creamy vanilla and nutty coconut provide the bold, sweet body of the blend, perfectly complemented by top notes of uplifting and fiery Ayurvedic long pepper and cardamom.
Serve lightly frothed with hot milk, and enjoy at any time of the day! Pu-Erh Chocolate Chai is the perfect balance of warmth and smoothness, with a delectable hint of fiery spice on the finish. Delicious and warming, just the ticket for those cold fall and winter days.
Ingredients: Organic pu-erh tea, organic roasted dandelion root, organic yerba maté, organic cocoa shells, organic cacao nibs, organic long pepper, organic coconut flakes, organic cardamom, organic vanilla bean.

This is the strangest Chai I’ve ever had. I feel like it’s trying to be a chai that I tried from Verdant once, the pheonix one I think, and just isn’t measuring up.
Very earthy. Reminds me of burdock, which apparently this does not have so what do I know lol.
Without milk, it was actually ok, if you don’t mind the soil type flavour. But seeing as it was a CHAI, I added some dairy and it was super strange. I really didn’t know what to make of it!! you can really tell that there is puerh in there. Roasted mate also makes an appearance, with it’s telltale signature earthy yet leafy flavour. Hrm.
but then the cup cooled and it started to grow on me. Some serious chocolate notes started to emerge. They were quite nice, and a pleasant surprise after the rocky start.
So lesson learned, don’t drink this baby hot. Wait til it’s alteast lukewarm!! Oh dear I hope I remember to check in on Steepster before brewing this up again, as I do prefer my drinks as hot as I can tolerate them.
