This is a tea that I have sent to others but never actually tried myself. Mostly because I didn’t really want it in the first place but rather it was simply cheaper for me to order the Holiday box than the other three teas individually. This just came as a bonus (and I am not a huge fan of the chocolate orange combination at the best of times so I wasn’t that excited). Then when I tried and hated all the other teas in that order, I sort of pushed off drinking this one. However, I have had it for a couple months and figured I should try it sooner or later as it might surprise me.
Tbh, I was surprised because I actually liked it the best out of all the ones in the holiday box. And by that, I mean I might be able to finish the box but the rest is being sent away. That means I am either going to send it in the swap to Roswell Strange or add it to the swap I am planning with Cavocorax if either of you want it.
Tastewise, there is orange and there is chocolate but there is also a bit of dustiness that I am not enjoying, probably from the cocoa powder. It isn’t horrible really, it is just not for me. Being a Teavana tea and a flavor I am not really a huge fan of, it was doomed from the start.
ETA: As I continue to sip, I don’t really realize the dusty quality so that may have been a fluke. Instead I am getting strong orange at the start of my sip that slowly transitions to chocolate with a slight chili kick. Still not for me but not as bad as the initial sip. Now I am off to get dressed and go to the gym.
