This is one of the two teas that DT brought back this year for our Easter Collection; I’m a little surprised because I’ve never really thought of this tea as all that popular overall. I suppose it is pretty thematically appropriate, though. And actually, I thought I had tried it before as well but looking here on Steepster I’ve never logged it, so I think I’m probably confusing it with another tea all together so I guess that means this counts as a “Project Tea Wall” tea!
I drank this one as an iced latte because that’s what I was craving, and one of our other tea guides said that this one works really well made that way. I have to say that on the whole I wasn’t really all that impressed with it; though I didn’t have any real negatives either. The biggest would just be that there was a lot of melted chocolate residue in the cup; you know, the goopy stuff no one likes. You couldn’t really feel that in the mouthfeel because of milk but I imagine it’d be quite strong if you were just drinking this one straight.
Apart from that, it was a pretty clear and plain chocolate flavour with some creaminess. Really simple, and straight to the point which can definitely be both a pro or a con depending on what you want from the tea. It didn’t taste artificial/chemical at all though, and that was my biggest fear. It was nice to see it not realized.
Just pretty average, all in all.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
