From Adagio Teas

Smooth, rich and comforting. Our Chocolate Pu Erh Chai hits all the marks for the perfect afternoon treat. It has everything you love about a good spicy chai, the boldness of chocolate and the silky mouthfeel that only pu erh can bring you. This is one flavorful cuppa that is sure to satisfy.

The story of chocolate in Western culture begins with Columbus. Cocoa beans were among the curiosities he brought back from his voyage. However, it wasn’t until the conquest of Mexico that the Spaniards learned of ‘chocolatl,’ a drink made from cocoa beans that the Aztecs served Cortez and his troops. The Spaniards found the drink bitter. The New World was also a source of cane sugar, and combining the two proved a booming business in Spain and eventually the rest of Europe.

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.

There is a very, very unpleasant smell to both the dry mix and the brewed tea. I won’t sugarcoat it; it stinks like urine. Urine mixed with chai spices, if you can imagine such a thing. This is pretty much the only reason I’m rating it as low as I am.

The taste is actually pretty good if you ignore the horrid smell and don’t oversteep. It’s chocolatey and spicy, smoother than the standard chocolate chai Adagio offers. I find it’s best if you use a teaspoon and a half, and stick to near-boiling water. Three minute steep, since at the recommended five the ginger overpowers everything else.

But that pee smell, ugh. It doesn’t exactly entice me to restock after finishing my sample.
