drank Chai Cacao by Tisano
4843 tasting notes


When I first ordered this tea, I anticipated it being a masala chai blend with cacao shells. I had not expected it to be a tea with Camellia Sinensis in it! But it is! That makes me all the happier with it.

I love cacao shells. Love them. I think that it is the best choice for a rich chocolate flavor in a steeped beverage. Nibs are ok, but, shells seem to deliver more chocolate flavor in my opinion.

In this chai, the chocolate is very rich and prominent. Happiness! This chocoholic is happy. Beneath the chocolate flavor is the rich malty notes of Assam. More happiness.

The spices are not as strong as I generally like in my chai. I like a good, spicy chai. But I also have an appreciation for a subtler approach with the spices like this chai takes. This is flavorful and the spices are nicely balanced.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
