I’ve had this one for a while and really thought I logged it, but apparently not!
Back when I first started getting into tea, I absolutely loved Davids Tea’s Chocolate Orange. I then stopped ordering from DT for a while for no particular reason, and by the time I got back around to them, it was gone. I’ve been looking for a replacement since then and saw this recently on Adagio’s website and was super excited to try it out.
From my memory of DT’s Chocolate Orange, it was super flavorful and chocolatey, with the pu-erh and orange backing it up without being overwhelming (though I may be pulling a Great Gatsby here!). Chorange definitely doesn’t compare to that, but it’s still nice. So far, I’ve found that the best way to drink it is after a quick rinse and with no milk. I always forget and put milk in because that’s my habit with chocolate teas, but with this one it mutes all the flavors to the point where I just get a bit of earthiness from the pu-erh.
Without milk, this one is a lot more orangey. I don’t taste a super obvious chocolate flavor, but I feel like the earthiness of the pu-erh kind of comes across as a dark chocolate. The flavors meld nicely without one overpowering the other, and this is a decent tea overall but I’m not really looking for an orange pu-erh at the moment. If you want a smooth and not overpowering orange pu-erh, definitely check this out! While I have no problems finishing this up, I probably won’t get it again any time soon because it’s just not what I want. My search for an orange chocolate tea continues!
