This was another suprise for me… like really. I got it as a sample and read the ingredient list and I was sure I wouldn’t like it too much. Leaves smelled of chocolate but had an odd thing..perhaps the chili. Dunno.
Steeped it up…..wow. I really havent found too many chocolate teas that I enjoy. They’re usually trying too hard or have a saccharine like quality to them.. like they’re trying to make milk chocolate tea and it’s always meh. This is like the unsweetened dark chocolate. It’s very very good. I don’t get a lot of chili in the fore front. I do get a bit of it in the finish. Just right there in the back. If you’re looking for a chocolate tea with more kick you wont be enamored here but if you’re looking for a good chocolate tea without the usual artificial thing…this is a good one. I will be buying more of this. the black base is so well balanced with this. You get all the flavors of a good chinese black with notes of chocolate and a hint of spice. Sipdown. I love it.
