This is one of the best chocolate teas I’ve tried. I can smell the chocolate straight away and it tastes just as good as it smells. It’s not the watered down chocolate I get from a lot of other teas, but more like a drinking chocolate. I guess this must come from the natural flavouring, as there’s nothing chocolate-like listed in the ingredients. The peppermint is gorgeous and genuinely gives this tea an after dinner chocolate mint feel. Personally, I probably wouldn’t drink this after my dinner due to the caffeine level, but it’s certainly something I’d reach for post-lunch. My partner enjoyed this tea too and said it satisfied his sweet tooth. A possible repurchase.
Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint
So, this was the tea I’d been thinking about brewing as I walked home from work this afternoon. But, witnessing a house fire being tackled by numerous fire fighters on my journey, kinda emptied my head of everything other than worrying that everyone involved was OK. Having calmed down slightly, while sipping on something more caffeinated, I returned to my tea corner and dug out my Hunky Dory sampler. On reflection, this… THIS, would have soothed my nerves a whole lot better, but anyway, this was perfect! A wonderful combination of ginger and green tea, with the ginger adding just the right kick and the Sencha adding a mellow grounding. A perfect afternoon tea and one that I’ll possibly re-purchase.
Flavors: Ginger, Green
I’ve searched for this. I needed this. I loved this. Hunky Dory was just amazing, genuinely providing the kick I wanted from a ginger tea, with a lovely sweet mellow back drop. It actually felt good to drink it, feeling like a bit of a cleanse and it’s packed with antioxidants. With the taste test passed, I would say the only blip I can see with this product is the name. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fun and bubbly name, but it just doesn’t seem to reflect the blends vigorous nature. That’s the best criticism for this tea I could come up with… Guess that makes this tea damn near perfect.

Tasting Note: A delicate aroma, similar to most white teas, rises from the steeped blend, providing a light floral element. The actual flavour is also light, consisting of chamomile notes, with a bitter caramel tea flavour. It’s both delicate and robust, but unfortunately there’s no zing of ginger or spices, making it a tad disappointing in relation to its name. Adding milk covers the delicate floral elements and allows the anise to make an appearance, however the flavour is still a little plain. On a plus, the muted notes make Jolly brew’s Gingerbread perfect as an everyday black tea.
