Very chocolaty, but I would have like it a little more spicy.

This tea added a spin on my love for hot chocolate. I loved how the aroma would fill up the room with the sent of chocolate and a spicy undertone. However, what I loved even more is the flavors, the chocolate was not overwhelming and the chili peppers added the right amount of heat. Currently my favorite in my cupboard.
I’m not a huge fan of spicy things, but this one was still very nice. I guess you could say that I was feeling impulsive when I tried it?
I’m not saying that it wasn’t spicy (It was very spicy), it was a special spice that warms you up on the inside on a cold winter day :)
Again with putting flowers in the tea. By the way I am totally okay with this. Finding flowers in my tea is just so special.
Also, I ordered some other teas online, and when I went to pick it up at the post office, the lady saw the David’s tea box, and she mentioned that she loves David’s Tea! We got into a whole conversation about tea, and this tea came up in that conversation for some reason. She said it was her favorite of the winter collection!
aroma: dark chocolate, black tea, peppercorn
taste: black tea, dark chocolate, chilli pepper
a super unique tea! reminiscent of pepperoncino or mexican hot chocolate. super delicious to bake with.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Pepper, Tea
The first time I had Mexican hot chocolate was in World literature class in high school; after all four of us in the class had finished the exam, our poe-faced teacher frothed some milk and made the delicious treat from compressed cakes of chocolate and spice.
This tea with lots of milk is fantastic when I want to capture some of that fond memory without the calories. You can really taste the chocolate and the chilli.
I was expecting more of a kick from this tea, but it’s a surprisingly mild-mannered chai, despite the visual presence of peppercorns and chili pieces. It is a bit thin-tasting, but not unpleasantly so. All in all, it’s more like a cocoa with a pepper taste to it, but I wouldn’t call it spicy. It’s not bad, just that I prefer other chocolate chai blends.
