From 52teas

A month or so ago, I went through a bit of a Chocolate Éclair obsession – which fortunately seemed to coincide with a sale that my favorite bakery was having with the delightful pastry. I’m not sure which came first, my obsession or the fact that they were on sale but as you can see, the obsession became part of this week’s tea of the week.

I started an organic Assam tea and blended that with a Fujian black tea. Then I added some organic roasted cacao nibs and shells for a rich, dark chocolate flavor and minced some organic vanilla bean and combined these ingredients with some organic natural flavors to create a creamy base with hints of pastry. I also tossed in some organic calendula petals for a little color.

The result is a lusciously creamy, sweet custard-y overtone with notes of dark chocolate and a subtle undertone of pastry with a distinct black tea flavor – with this tea you can enjoy ‘dessert’ for breakfast and not worry about all the fat and calories of the real thing.

One of the creamiest teas I have tried. Full bodied. No bitterness at all. Th creamy flavor outweigh the chocolate IMO but in a good way. Delicious! something I plan to reorder ASAP.

This is like my fifth cup of it already so perhaps it would be a good idea to report on this. The scent of the dry leaf is chocolate, alright. There is a generous amount of cacao shells in here so you better believe this smells like a bar of dark chocolate.

In terms of flavour, I am getting the cacao notes first and foremost, followed by some honeyed and mineral notes from the base. There is a little creaminess there, just a hint. The base also becomes slightly astringent once cooled after half an hour (TWD is distracting me!) but not in a bad way.

My second favourite of the three FUNdraiser blends.

Five cups already! Score!

Thank you to VariaTEA for sending me a sample of this! I’m buying my own pouch in the FUNdraiser sale, but I’m happy to try it out now.

Malty base (it tastes like Assam and Chinese Jin Jun Mei. I don’t actually know what the base is, but it tastes like a mix of smooth blacks). EDIT: Looked it up and the base is Assam and Fujian black-possible Jin Jun Mei. Damn, I’m good.

There is some raw cocoa/dark chocolate here, minerals, tannin. I think the creaminess could have come through a little bitter because I got vanilla but not really whipped cream like that you might expect in an eclair or cream puff. Even if the milk chocolate/cream intensity wasn’t there, it made an excellent morning cup. I recommend this tea to fellow chocolate fans.

Flavors: Cocoa, Dark Chocolate, Mineral, Tannin

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 45 sec 4 g 17 OZ / 500 ML

I steeped it at 200 and never got any bitterness. Wonder if maybe that’s where the issue was?


When I get my new bag, I’ll try it hot or as a latte.

“It’s a creamy, chocolately, slightly nutty flavor. There aren’t any nuts in this blend, so I’m probably mis-interpreting the cacao shells or something.
I’m not sure if this tastes like eclairs because I’ve never had one. It’s just one of those holes in my flavor knowledge. What’s an eclair? DUNNO.
… I imagine that people probably like eclairs and then try the tea. But I like this tea, and might now try an eclair.”

mmmmm this is really nice. Sample from VariaTEA and it’s a tasty one. the chocolate/vanilla combo makes it just the right sort of chocolatey taste. I’d say this is pretty damn close to the real thing, at least as close as you can get in terms of a liquid emulating that squishy bite in to yum.

speaking of yum….Americans…your girl scout cookies are evil…in a good way.


Agreed. Especially the coconut caramel things.

Evol Ving Ness

Sil, your tastebuds and mine are clearly on the same pattern today. Currently drinking Chocolate Delight. But doesn’t seem to be quite as good and what is in your cup.


gmathis – hells yes….trying to get my grubby hands on a box of smores this year since they’re new. So many i haven’t tried yet lol
evol – too funny!


Omg damn you 52teas. I’ve never tried Girl Scout cookies but perhaps it’s for the best.

This has been sitting around in my stash. I was getting tired of having coffee every morning at work, so I chucked this in my handbag earlier this week. I’ve had a cup every day for the past four days, and it’s really delightful. It’s one of the better chocolate teas I’ve had in recent memory. It tastes very rich and sinful even though it’s not. I like it best as a latte because dairy (or non-dairy milk for that matter) really brings out the creaminess that you’d get with an actual eclair. All in all, another solid flavored black tea blend from 52Teas. Recommended for those that enjoy dessert and/or chocolate teas.

I like this!! It’s like peppermint marshmallow melting in hot chocolate but without the mint. Awesome velvety chocolate flavor…like a milk chocolate fondue but with a nice punch of vanilla bean to reflect the eclair custard. This is not really the best description and sorry for that but I will say this delivers on the chocolate eclair flavor it promises and that makes it awesome!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Cream, Custard, Vanilla

Spot on eclaire. It’s a very particular taste so I didn’t expect this level of accuracy! Holy smokes. Now I’m sad to only have a sample. The custardy now, the whipped cream, light chocolate…. all there! Happy sighs. Today has been a good tea day. I need more of this one. A lot more


And again it won’t let me post from my phone properly. Will have to adjust typos later :/

Evol Ving Ness

This one sounds divine. DIVINE.


It so IS Evol, I adore it!!

Happy tea moments are happy. Enjoy!


Hehe thanks. I plan to sit down and properly savour the next one :)
