drank Chocolate Rocket by DAVIDsTEA
59 tasting notes

I recently came to the conclusion that I do not like chocolate teas. They remind me of being a child, and my mom making me hot chocolate with too little cocoa powder. That barely there chocolate-like flavour that just makes you yearn for actual chocolate and despise this chocolate impostor in front of you. (Speaking of hot chocolate – that conjures up sore memories of my ex and I going skating…but let’s keep the lid on that can of worms)

Anyway, last week I received Davids’ Sweet Indulgence set as a Valentines Day gift., which includes four chocolatey teas. This morning I thought “Eh…let’s get this over with” and broke out Chocolate Rocket.

I opened the tiny tin, and was immediately struck by the scent of chocolate and artificial raspberry. I hate to call it artificial, that sounds so derogatory. Let’s call it a raspberry candy-like scent. I let 2.5tsp brew in 1 3/4th water at 85 degrees for 6 minutes in my French press.

I poured, and took a small sip to determine what it was going to need. Bleh, just as I expected watery chocolate. I added a touch of agave and a swig of an almond & coconut milk blend. Sitting down at the computer to write this review, I sipped away. About 3 or 4 sips in I realized….the flavour was growing on me. In fact, I border line liked it.

In conclusion, I’ll happily drink the remainder, and wouldn’t say no to a cup if someone offered. I doubt I’ll buy it again though…there’s just too many better teas out there.

Tea literally gets me through the day. I start with something caffeinated in the morning, then usually a re-steep or less caffeinated tea mid morning and work my way to a herbal by night.

Green tea and oolong are top in my books. I recently discovered that I LOVE genmaicha – but I get why it’s not for everyone. My favourite flavours right now are lime, lavender and mint. I tend to dislike teas that have raisins or hibiscus, and I’m not fond of weak fruit infusions.

A lot of my teas come from Davidstea. I also have some Teavana and Tealish. When I can, I try to pick up unique teas. My most prized tea is a tea from Ste Anne’s Spa in Grafton, Ont called Cinnamon Glow.
