Kiss me, kiss me

Okay, this is probably the world’s best chocolate tea. Honestly. Better than dessert. More reliable than sex. It’s a totally decadent combination of China black tea, vanilla, peppermint, chocolate bits and spicy red peppercorns. Plus it contains little red candy lips for a kiss of sweetness. In other words, it’s a completely satisfying spring experience with no guilt or strings attached.

Ingredients: Chinese black tea, peppermint, dark chocolate (Sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and vanilla), red lip sprinkles (sugar, rice flour, cottonseed or soybean oil, cornstarch, gum and soy lecithin, colouring), pink peppercorns, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Soy and may contain dairy

The very first time I ever bought loose leaf tea was at David’s this past August. And when I went, I bought a lot. I picked this up because I saw how popular it was at both David’s and on tea forum websites such as this. Obviously I was really excited to try this one and even stupidly picked up a rainbow tin expecting to love it. Unfortunately, after now trying it for a second time, I can confirm that this tea is just not for me. I can’t quite put my finger on why I don’t like it, I just know I am really not a fan so into the swap box it goes I guess.

sixth tea sampled from TTB-C (and last one for tonight)

I am still on a quest to find a chocolate tea that I love. There have been a few that I like well enough, so there is hope. I have had my eye on this one for sometime. it has a catchy list of ingredients and a lot of positive reviews.

Relative to all the teas that I have sampled this evening, this was the second-most palatable (though, that doesn’t say much for it).

I have had two other mint and chocolate pairings in the past that I would take over this. My quest continues…

Hmm, I think something is going on with my mouth. I tried four different teas yesterday and they were all weak and meh. Then I tried this today, and it was meh. I do have these weird little bumps in one spot on the roof of my mouth, that I just noticed today. Maybe I somehow burned myself really bad or something. I hope it’s just my taster that’s not working, because I really want these teas to taste good!
As far as I can tell, I couldn’t really taste much chocolate or peppermint with this. I’ll definitely give it another try later.

I love anything chocolate mint flavored, so when I was making my first order from David’s teas I had to try this one! The loose tea is adorable, with the chocolate chips and little candies. The smell is just like an Andes mint – quite minty! I steeped for 5 minutes at boiling, and then tested the tea plain.

Without additions there is a slightly bitter edge to the chocolate, and the mint comes across strongly. No real taste of the peppercorns. I’m actually surprised that the added bits don’t make it sweeter (I’m glad though, as I like to add my own.)

I added milk and a bit of sweetener. The milk brings out the chocolate even more – the mint is not dominating! It’s very smooth, and the taste is true – it really tastes like chocolate, which I don’t usually find to be the case with chocolate teas. The other chocolate mint tea I own (Harney and Sons Chocolate Mint) is more dominated by mint, so there is room for both in my cabinet. I’m pretty impressed – I hope I like the other teas from my order just as much!

On my tea latte roll now. I’ve had the read my lips tea plain (before I found this wonderful web site…) and felt it was time to try it as a latte.

The smell as it was steeping reminds me of the spiked hot chocolates I would make after a hike on the weekend (made with some creme de mint). Even has me wondering how it might taste with a small splash ;)

The taste is very light. Kinda like a very weak/mellow spiked hot chocolate… Not to chocolatey and not too minty – just right for when you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but want something (if you know what I mean).

My next though is that I’m now wondering how this tea would taste mixed with the Oh Christmas Treat – thinking chocolate mint Terry’s christmas orange…


As a treat, I sometimes use this tea as a base for a few tblspoons of hot chocolate and throw some irish cream in there, so although it sounds like it overwhelms the tea – it really doesn’t! This is a great tea for adding alcohol. ahem. continue on :D


I’ve got some rum, crime de mint, and possibly some grand marnier that I’m thinking may be good additions to my teas…


Oh perfect! Do it up for sure

I really like the little red lips and tiny chocolate chips in this blend. Adorable! Brewed, I was a bit worried at the scent of the peppercorns. I dislike anything spicy or peppery, but luckily, they aren’t too overwhelming! The taste is smooth and sweet (not necessarily a punch of chocolate, but a nice sweetness). I really enjoy the minty finish. It’s certainly refreshing and is the best part of this blend, in my opinion (besides the little red lips, of course). Usually I don’t care for peppermint all that much, but this evening I’m definitely in the mood. Thank you so much to ladykittykat for a sample!

Mmm… mint. That’s a lot of mint. Maybe I brewed it too long. Smells really good. The flavour is pretty good, though not as chocolaty.

Received this as a free sample in an order. To be honest, I’ve given up on chocolate tea, but hey it’s a freebie might as well try it yes?

Well, so far it’s not promising. It’s steeping right now, and well, it doesn’t smell pleasant. It smells like a combo of dirt and tootsie rolls. Yum?

It’s far far worse than I thought it would be. After the first sip my immediate thought was “WHAT did I just put in my mouth?” Just to be sure, I took another. Then I dumped it down the drain and threw away the leaves.

I’m going to refrain from rating it because I think the problem is partially me. Chocolate and tea just don’t work for me. Not unless it’s a NOTE of chocolate like in Butiki’s Premium Taiwanese Assam, but actual chocolate and tea just … I don’t know. I just don’t enjoy it.

Just glad this was a sample.

Chocolate in tea is a difficult one for me as well. A lot of the DavidsTea’s with chocolate have disappointed, except I enjoyed Checkmate. (Oh wait – that one just TASTES like chocolate, but doesn’t actually have any – HA).

I was surprised by some of Della Terra Teas because I enjoyed the chocolate in their mixes, but it’s so hit and miss I wouldn’t expect anyone else to find the same thing. If you do decide to try DTT, they’re pretty decent because they always have sales so you can make up for the shipping by timing your order.


I agree with you on the chocolate. For me the problem seems to be that a chocolate flavoured tea can never really deliver on the texture and that sticky, thick feel is half the chocolate experience for me. Nothing worse than a water-y hot cocoa.

This tea doesn’t get as much love from me as it should, by virtue of being super popular. I am always advocating for the underdog lol. However right now a pot of this is the perfect thing I wanted. yummmy.


I agree about the popular teas thing; I never like any of the “popular” teas at David’s. But I’m glad you like this one!

This was in my 25 Days of Tea calendar but I never tried it as I am not into mint teas. Or, really, mint anything. I can’t do mint and chocolate candies/cookies, and I dislike peppermint tea.

But then I tried Santa’s Secret and loved it. This smelled great in its mini-tin, so I thought maybe I was changing my ways and should give it a shot.

Unfortunately not. This mostly tastes like peppermint herbal tea to me. I do taste the chocolate, but I guess my strong opinion on peppermint kind of overrides it and I don’t much notice it. I also don’t taste the black tea. Oh well. I’m glad I got to try it without buying a baggie. I don’t know what it was about Santa’s Secret that had me liking the mint; maybe the creamy/candy quality makes it agreeable.
