Wonderful chocolatey aromatics.

First sip pulls you in with subtle flavor of chocolate, but more so the very distinct carob hits the palate most prominently. The mate is barely noticeable, but comes through ever so gently on the backend, but you really have to search for it.

With the name being “Double Dark Chocolate” I was hoping for a bit more dankness in chocolate flavor, but I realize how difficult a challenge that may be to execute in a tea without the use of too many added flavors.

I do have to mention, the fact that this tea is organic earns them points for sure. It could have been much easier to dump flavor into this blend and call it chocolate, but the team at Republic relied mostly on the formulation of natural ingredients to build out the flavors you’ll taste in your cup. Props to them.

Overall, it’s not bad, but it leaves me wanting for something a bit more with each sip.
If you’re a carob fanatic, this may be stocked in your tea cabinet, but the chocolate lovers may find themselves mildly disappointed.

I was introduced to tea as less of a traditionalist and more from a health conscious perspective, but I’ve become fascinated by tea culture and I’m excited to continue exploring these magic elixirs.

I’m a child of the 80’s, a nerd at heart, and an aspiring entrepreneur: retro games, sci-fi books, marketing, biohacking, health and fitness, MMA.

On a personal note:
My father was diagnosed with GBM brain cancer in 2014 and passed 14 months later. That period in my life was a catalyst for my life mission and has redirected my path from tech to tea. I’ve since founded Wise Ape Tea, a healthy-lifestyle tea company focused on altruism and personal evolution. We’re a brand steeped in altruism, partnering each of our tea blends with a unique non-profit to donate % of sales.

I very much look forward to connecting with the steepster community and continuing to evolve my tea knowledge.

Cheers,
Joe
