Let’s face it, there are few of us who don’t like chocolate! As a chocolate lover I used to have high hopes for chocolate tea but, after a while, I started taking the term “chocolate tea” with a pinch of salt. Unfortunately, I’ve never tasted one that lived up to the real thing. This doesn’t mean chocolate tea is bad, just, you know, be cool, don’t get too excited.

The aroma on this blend does have a likeness to milk chocolate, but the brewed flavour is hard to get right. If under steeped the flavour is weak, if overdone the tea is bitter and tannic. The line between the two is very fine and hard to find (some steeping recommendations might have helped!). The good news? Whichever end of the spectrum you land, chocolate notes are present, ranging from mild to dark chocolate-like, with a vanilla creaminess.

Flavors: Bitter, Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Milk

I hear you! I think the best tea I’ve tasted that is a chocolate or chocolate-like tea is Bayswater’s Chocolate Macchiato. If you don’t mind a shot of coffee in there, that one is really heavy on both flavours.

Ohhh, nice! Thats a great tip! I’m not a fan of coffee, but I’ve had blends with coffee in that weren’t too bad

The black tea is malty and citric, without dominating the fruity elements. I’m not usually into fruity black teas, but this one was lovely, pairing well with Autumn due to its tantalising mix of dark fruity berries, musk and smokiness.

I love rose, and this smelt exactly like a rose flavoured Turkish delight. Yum! There were even two big rose buds in the packet! That lovely rose aroma becomes weaker once steeped, turning instead to notes of vanilla, green tea and fruitiness. Although, the mix of robust black tea and delicate green tea means it’s easy to over steep and ruin the leaves. Be careful!

drank Watermelon by Fox Tea Club
194 tasting notes

A tea like this is MADE to be cold brewed. Is it tasty? Yes, of course it is! It has a refreshing, confectionery like watermelon flavour and isn’t too sweet or hibiscus-y. Honestly though, I preferred this one hot! It has a real sour kick to it! My mouths watering just writing about it.

Ok, this smells exactly how you would expect it to. I’m a pu-erh novice, but I’ve drunk enough of it to recognise the peaty, earthy notes of a fermented tea. The classic earthiness intertwines with an equally rich creaminess. The leaves are soaked in whey before steaming and fermentation takes place, to give them the milky flavour. I’ve never heard of this technique before and, whilst the process unsettles me, it didn’t stop me enjoying the tea. The only downside is, anyone striving for a plant-based diet or with a dairy restriction might run into some trouble.

This is a very nice dessert tea. There are large pieces of black tea leaves, they unfurl very nicely. The tea has a perfect balance of chocolate and black tea taste. Also, they were able to get the tea to taste really like chocolate without all artificial ingredients which I like. I really enjoyed this one!
