From Della Terra Teas

A delicious chocolate tea recipe spiked with the perfect amount of chili pepper! Just like the classic chocolate chili recipes from Mexico, this wonderful blend will give you the slight spiciness of chili pepper and the richness of chocolate. This is a must try for every chocolate lover out there!

Ingredients: Black tea, chocolate and chili flavoring, cocoa pieces, chili pepper flakes and bits

This too was in the wonderful swap box from JackieT. I know Jackie marked this as one of her favorites, but sorry, not for me. It’s too spicy. I’m generally ok with spice. Love spicy food, but this is overwhelmingly chili. I’m not sure that it’s too HOT, more like it’s too chili. I think I would like this better if they had just used cayenne rather than chili flavor. I just found that the chocolate was totally lost behind the chili.
Glad to have tried it, but it’s not for me.

Another great della terra tea! I’m really liking this company. But this one is probably my least favorite.

The chocolate at first is quite pronounced and not overly “fake” as some chocolates have been but it is slightly there. The chili flavor is not strong enough for my likings but I’m a heat freak and live on spice. Unfortunately the after taste isn’t so great and is kind of bland with the fake choco lingering and the chili kick not being enough. Other chili teas have had a strong chili after taste which this one just lacks. Frankly della terra should add far more chili to this. People who order chili teas are likely fans of hot stuff and while this tea is good its not quite spicy enough.

Thank you Marzipan for the sample!

Hmm, I’m not sure about this one. The chocolate notes are not strong. It isn’t spicy either but there is another flavor floating around that MIGHT be something peppery. But honestly? This reminds me of flavored pipe tobacco! WEIRD!

Anyway, Della Terra’s offerings are hit or miss with me. I’ve only had a couple of them I’ve really loved. Always fun to try new teas though :)

Thanks for the sample, RogersCK!

The dry leaf actually smells like dark chocolate cocoa. The brewed leaf smells just about the same, with maybe a hint of spiciness at the end (I might be imagining it). The flavor is pretty darn chocolatey. A bit of brown crystal sugar brings out that chocolate flavor even more. The chili comes out in the aftertaste. It’s ok, but I’m not a fan of this kind of spiciness in my tea. I do realize it’s unfair to criticize a tea for tasting exactly like what it’s called! For myself, I would rate this a 75 because of the chili aspect and because black tea rarely sits well with me. For quality of flavor and faithfulness to the name, I’d give it an 85. So I’m going to refrain from giving it a rating at all. Sipdown!
