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.

Added rock sugar, milk and a teaspoon more of tea then I normally would for the cup and it tasted like hot chocolate. It has a very strong chocolate smell to it as well. I’m definitely stocking up come fall.

This is my favourite tea. I love the spiciness with the chocolate flavour. So far the best chocolate tea I’ve had.

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.

I don’t understand the hoopla about this tea. It smells divine, but I thought it was a bit bland and bitter. Maybe I have to experiment with steeping times. Could not detect the chilis at all.

Not bad for black tea, reminds me of an apple spice kind of taste, appropriate for winter, the cinnamon is a good addition to the tea

The smell of this tea is wonderful! I was underwhelmed with the flavour until I added a splash of light Vanilla soy milk and I found that brought out the flavours and made it nice and smooth.

Hmmm this tea was full of promises but unfortunately, its taste isn’t strong enough. It’s not bad though but it’s better with milk and fireball whiskey.

It doesn’t have a very strong flavor, but I still like it on a cold, snowy day. I’m on my second tin of it now. I’ve found that using two teaspoons and steeping for about 5-6 minutes is ideal. Second steepings are too weak and a waste of time for this one. Very good with a pinch of sugar and a splash of milk. It’s not as spicy as I usually like. I’ve thought of adding a pinch of cayenne to it. I like super spicy stuff!
