Mmmm, this was so good. The chocolate wasn’t that each kind of chocolate, it was more the darker chocolate that I enjoy. It was sweet enough that I didn’t have to add any sweetener (which I don’t like to add anyway).
Nutty, chocolate tea…how can you go wrong?
If I ever order from this company, this tea would certainly be on that list!
Thanks to whoever added this to the Canadian Travelling Tea Box!
This is one of the best chocolate teas I’ve tried: rich, bittersweet chocolate flavor with a hint of hazelnut. It’s definitely on the pricey side, but worth it for a special treat. It was delicious straight, but I’m curious to also try it as a latte…milk and sugar might take it over the top!
Flavors: Chocolate, Dark Bittersweet, Hazelnut
This is a really tasty gourmand tea. The smell of the dry leaf is quite intoxicating and very unique – rich, boozy, chocolaty. I’ve never had chestnuts before but the nuttiness in this blend reads hazelnut (not surprising given the ingredients) to my tastebuds. The black tea base was quite smooth and naturally sweet. The cocoa beans and husk lend a nice, bold chocolate flavor. I appreciate that the tea didn’t contain pieces of chocolate that would melt and, therefore, create that unappealing oiliness that coats the roof of your mouth.
I steeped the leaves three times before giving up the ghost.All in all, it’s a lovely chocolate tea.
Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut, Sweet
Did I seriously polish off 100g of this in under four months? For a tea that didn’t dazzle me, that’s pretty darn impressive. I had 10g left in the bag so I made a massive cup and it turned out very chocolatey. The chocolate note in this is the highlight of this, in my opinion. I’m so glad I was able to snag some on sale since I still don’t think it was worth its full price.
That means the cupboard count is down to 43.
In the words of Daylon R Thomas, “Liquid Nutella is the best description I can offer.”I didn’t want to stop drinking this lovely sample from @Whiteantlers. I have a little more left over, but I think I’ll make a small amount of Sun tea with it. I might as well experiment with this tea, since it’s so good. Plus, iced chocolate tea—it could be good!?
These samples have so far proven that there are other types of tea out there that I’ve yet to try; which I plan on trying more of, once I drink down more tea. It’s not that I’m not committed to tea, but I’m literally running out of room in my cupboard. I’ve purchased an unnatural amount in the past few months (there’s no such thing as an unnatural amount of tea, though), and I want to create a challenge for myself to see if I can drink away 5-6 teas before buying more.
Anyway, thank you for this lovely sample, Whiteantlers. It has been an adventure thus far, and I can’t wait to try the rest this week. :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Creamy, Nutty, Sweet
31mar-This tea smells divine! Chocolate and hazelnut. I ended up ignoring their steeping directions execpt for the water temperature because I was brewing in a gaiwan.
Both my westren style steepers have flavor contamination issues right at the moment. One with ginseng and the other with chai spices. I need to go and purchase a replacement steeper.
Flavor stayed consistent throughout all steeps, all 8. I ended up stopping because I was overly watered, not because the tea was done. Tea was super chocolatey and hazelnut and sweet. Sweet chocolate. It was almost too rich. A very fullfilling dessert tea. Glad I decided to get the larger size. 95

This is one of the chocolatiest teas I’ve ever had. As a chocoholic, I’m always looking for ways to get my fix that won’t destroy my health…I think I may have found the perfect thing. Why oh why can’t they keep this blend forever?? I just ordered a bunch since they’ve discounted it, but I may have to order even more.
For my fellow chocoholics or anyone interested: here’s $10 off! http://go.referralcandy.com/share/FKRVB4M
Liquid Nutella is the best deccription I can offer. Smells like thick flavored booze or tobacco. And a very smooth black tea base that is INCREDIBLY sweet. Officially one of the best chocolate teas I’ve yet had. I highly recommend. Thank you Sil for giving me the recommendation and coupon!
Now. This is for you guys.
Oh. My. God.
I opened up the package that Sil sent me (which came with the GCTTB5) this morning, and it smelled LIKE BOOZE. CHOCOLATE AND BOOZE AT A QUARTER TO 7 IN THE MORNING.
Since I don’t drink a lot of alcohol I couldn’t name exactly what kind of booze I was smelling. Rum? Brandy? Nevertheless, it smelled amazing. Like chocolate covered cherries.
The flavour was more subtle, but very enjoyable. I super wish I had this tea on Valentine’s Day, it would have been so perfect.
