From Teavana

Drawing inspiration from a decadent warm Hawaiian chocolate cake, this oolong blend is a luxurious mix of robust cacao, creamy toasted coconut, and ginger spice that satisfies even the strongest sweet tooth. Pink rose petals add romantic icing to this guilt-free treat enticing you to reach for seconds. Have your tea and eat it too! CONTAINS NUTS

Dark chocolate with sweet toasted coconut

How to Prepare:
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to just before boiling (195 degrees/90 degrees Celsius) and steep for 3 minutes. For stronger flavor, use more tea leaves. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.

Ingredients: Oolong tea, coconut chips, roasted mate, carob pieces, flavoring (chocolate, coconut, roasted chestnut, cream), licorice root, rose petals

Another one that I grabbed on my recent venture. I agree with Teaequalsbliss that there is a slight coffee aroma with this one. Coconut is very apparent when you smell the dry leaf. Not so much the ginger, and I have not noticed rose in here. When it all comes together in the cup…it does taste a bit like chocolate cake…Hawaiian? I don’t know. I’ve never had Hawaiian chocolate cake. I like the cocoa flavor that comes through. Looking at the wet leaves in my strainer it looks like a combo of green and more oxidized oolong tea leaves. The tea base came through on this one and reminded me of the Shui-Hsien that I have tried overall a decent cup.

Actually not bad, I am pleasantly surprised! This is actually not bad. The chocolate and the coconut are both present and the oolong adds an almost floral base note to the tea. Surprisingly, I didn’t need to sweeten the tea the way I tend to sweeten my chocolate teas. It is a nice light tea with a rich chocolate taste.

I got this on a nice sale, I am not sure how fast I would replace it, but I am glad I have some of this to try for a while!

I wanted something chocolatey tonight but didn’t want anything with actual chocolate chips in. I also didn’t want all the caffeine of a black tea so late in the evening…so Slimful Chocolate Decadence it is!

As always, a delicious airy chocolate flavour with wonderful coconut. Wonderful, wonderful coconut. I love coconut. I can’t deny it. This tea reminds me of a very light chocolate mousse with nuts. Or a coconut macaroon.

After the disappointment I’ve felt with teas overall today, it was nice to have this one at the end of the day. Rating goes up!

Another thing you can try is raw cocao nibs I use them in a few blends and they dont clump like baking coco, you can find them in most vitamin stores and they are a great source of iron.

I’ve had this a while and put off testing it .. not sure why. In the mood for chocolate tonight (and have none in the house, which usually isn’t a problem…candy isn’t one of my many sins, lol).

Ingredients: Oolong tea, coconut chips, roasted mate, carob pieces, flavoring (chocolate, coconut, roasted chestnut, cream), licorice root, rose petals

The scent of the dry blend is of chocolate, but more of a dark cocoa kind of way. The brewed aroma is very similar, picking up on the hazelnut (which worries me… not a fan). First sip, I am tasting this hazelnut quite prominently (uh oh). It is being tempered by the other flavors, noticably the coconut which is adding sweetness I think. Aftertaste is where I’m picking up on a slight coffee hint that others have mentioned, but it’s not bitter at all so tolerable to me. Haven’t tasted mate on it’s own, so not sure if that would be giving it that undertone (of coffee?), but don’t see anything else on list that could be doing it. Hmmmm, maybe it’s the hazelnut …

There are things I like and don’t like about this blend. Overall, I can drink it. The coconut and chocolate are becoming apparent, but the hazelnut has too much of a role here (for my personal tastes). IF you love hazelnut chocolate, give this tea a try … in that respect, it’s very good.

Even though I don’t really like “Chocolatey teas” (too sweet or artificial tasting sometimes) , this is a very good Chocolate/Oolong with subtle notes of coconut!! The smokey notes of the Oolong blend very well with the chocolate and Coconut. Very warm and inviting taste that has a very tropical feeling without being over the top “Chocolatey” !!

After being exposed again to automated bagged tea at the office, I felt an urgent need for the finer teas in life. I picked up this blend at the local Teavana store on Saturday after the salesperson waved the container’s lid in my face until I was hypnotized.

I’m very new to oolong teas so I’m still getting used to their much milder taste, compared to the robust black teas that I favor. This selection, though, has a very smooth and even flavor. The chocolate sensation is subtle but potent enough to recognize. There is also an almost creamy quality to this tea. If you didn’t know better, you might think that milk had been added to it.

All in all, this tea presents a peaceful and tasty sipping experience. The only thing I will do differently next time, is enjoy it in the early afternoon instead of the morning. I still prefer the aggressive working over that black tea gives my brain as I attempt to emerge from my nightly coma.

i did cream and sugar this one. the smell is incredible. the taste (on this first brew)was not what i had hoped it would be. i’m going to chalk that up to possible operator error. i really like a long steep, especially for a robust tea like this one and i think i may have cut off my steep time. thus far i find this to be a god tea, but not a great one as i was expecting…but i hope my mark will be adjusted.

what is interesting about this tea: i have a heavy brown layer visible through my clear tea cup. if i’m judging by bouquet alone then i am absolutely convinced. once it’s steeped: the chestnut has a significant presence! it makes for a very nice, rich, stable base…. an exotic neutral, if you will.

sadly, at the moment i cannot see having this blend without cream and sugar… but that may change. stay tuned!

UPDATE: for reasons i cannot fathom this tea was loads better on the second steep?!! i have no idea what toned down or how i managed it, but the second steep makes aaaaaall the difference. happily, i am increasing my initial rating! again, the chestnut base in this blend is divine.

Decided to pop by the mall on the way to downtown after work, to kill some time before a show. I knew I wanted some caffeine to get me through the show later, but I knew I wanted tea instead of coffee. I was just gonna go to Starbucks or Timmies, but remembered the Teavana in the mall. So I opted to go there instead, and this is the drink I chose. I’ve had it before, so I played it safe. I had this only with sweetener, no milk this time, and it was fine. Mostly chocolate and coconut notes. Not a terribly strong brew, but it was fine.

As in the past, it’s pretty tasty, and one of the few teas from them I like. But I don’t know if I’d ever buy a tin of this or not. Might have a few more to go cups of this before deciding, as it is tasty, but I generally dislike going there.

You’re mighty brave for even bothering! That place is just a waste of money for me, personally haha.

Rant: Ok, I bought this tea originally to trade with, along with a few others. I was going to the mall in Orlando that weekend so I decided to buy some teas from Teavana at the store. That way I could get 1oz of tea flavors versus having to buy a minimum of 2oz online, which I can understand; also this way I could get more flavors for the same price. When I went into the store I notice that they had made it larger, which was nice since it was crampt before. As always me and my freind walked around, tried some samples, looked at the pretty teaware, ect. I haven’t been there alot, but they seemed more car sales-y… more pushy. I don’t blame them though(I will say why later). So when I made my way up to the counter, the first flavor I wanted the standard 2oz. However, when I wanted 1oz of the next flavor, they said that I had to buy a minimum of 2oz of each flavor. I was shocked and annoyed! I mean I get why it is like that online, but in the STORE!? It just doesn’t make any sense to me, and really left me feeling sour. I kinda wonder if all Teavanas are like this. I over heard the employ that served me tell the cashier, who I think was in charge, that she told me I had to buy 2oz(I have ninja ears). I also noticed that at the bottom of the receipt it said that I was sold a total of 4 units….. for 2 different 2oz teas… 1oz=1 unit. The reason they are like this though, is because in order for employees to get hours they have to sell a certain number of units or bring in around $50. If they don’t they get little to no hours. That being said, this policy completely contradicts their mission statement. They are kinda like a friend that you slowly start to realize isn’t the best kind of friend you want, but they introduced you to other new and better people. In this case, they introduced loose teas to me, but I have found them to be a little mediocre and to full of themselves. I will buy from them in the future, but not anytime soon…

Tea Time:
The smell of this tea is very… interesting. Kinda musky, chocolaty, and coconuty. The brew it makes is a deep and nice yellow. The taste is kinda weird, but in a good way. I haven’t tried a lot of oolongs so it is hard to compare it or know what kind of oolong they used. It taste very coco/chicoryish with coconut. I don’t taste much floral notes though. I will say though that it has a kinda stuffy air and taste about it.

So far I have been able to get 2 steepings out of it, and will see if I can get a third. Even if I can’t get a third, at least you can get two which makes the price not seem as steep.


Specifics
water: 28oz
Amount: 2 1/2 tsp
Sweetener: 1 1/2 tbsp
Pot: Glass

Overall I would recommend this to someone who likes coconut or chocolate type of flavors.

This tea engulfs you in coconut aroma bliss. The smell of coconut is very potent from opening the bag to steeping. There are chocolate details in there somewhere, but the coconut is most prominent.

My first sip really surprised me. I didn’t expect this tea to be so creamy. The chocolate taste and nutty flavors are there, but I am quite thankful the coconut is still prominent in taste as well, it gives a bit of a sweeter flavor to it’s striking coffee similarity. The rose and licorice are quite faint in the background, which is ok, as they do not need to be big flavors in this already deliciously milky tea.

After getting repeatedly disappointed with coffee extract tea blends from another company, Teavana seem to know how to make coffee alternatives without actually putting one bit of coffee in their teas. This tea has all the right elements for a pitch perfect blend that both coffee and tea drinkers will enjoy.
