A sample from Miss B. I’m very much a chocolate tea fan, so I’m more than happy to take any opportunity to try one that’s new to me. I used 1.5 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk.

I was looking forward to chocolate truffle in a cup – who wouldn’t? – but it’s really not that intense. The black tea is malty and sweet, but that’s mostly all I can taste. There’s a hint of chocolate, but I think potentially I’ve been spoilt by some of the other chocolate teas I’ve tried recently. I’m looking for MORE CHOCOLATE, and it’s not there to find. Still, though, it’s tea. My expectations should probably be more reasonable.

This isn’t a bad cup, by any means. The base tea is pleasant and there is some chocolate. Just not enough for me, clearly!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

Ha, is there ever enough chocolate!? What is your favourite chocolate tea?

Probably Butiki’s Two Friends. Otherwise, there are a lot of plain black teas I love that have strong chocolate notes, so probably one of those too rather than a flavoured chocolate tea. Mariage Freres French Breakfast was amazing, and Teavivre Fengqing Dragon Pearls. It’s hard to choose just one!

Mmm, love the dragon pearls! I have never tried anything from Mariage Freres, but I’m putting that one on the wish list!

Apparently i forgot to log a few teas before i left for vacation. I had this then, and now that i’m back it’s a sipdown. For the most part this is an average sort of chocolate tea. I don’t get the rich decadent chocolate that i expect when something is a truffle. It’s not a bad cup of tea but i want MOAR decadence….not this wimpy chocolate :) Thanks for sharing missb!

Bah. I can’t upload images from my phone! I took a great one for this Tea.

Went into Pekoe Tea Lounge today because my fancy phone told me it was nearby. Talked to the owner about where he gets his Tea from… now I know but they’re different names and several companies. Easier if I post this way then, right?

pretty Sure I under leafed this, will have to try again at home. Definitely chocolate, just a but weak and got a touch bitter as it cooled.

2 min steep, No idea temperature

1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

MissB

Yes ma’am! Was an interesting experience. Will share more when on my computer again.

It used to be a Steeps, and I know they carry a LOT of Steeps tea. The setup hasn’t changed in years. Look forward to hearing more!
