I’m surprised that I’m the first one who’s reviewed this chocolate on Steepster!

Anyways, I ordered all of David’s Tea’s chocolates a few weeks ago, and I saved this one for last. There was the white chocolate Matcha Matsu (blech), the dark chocolate Hot Lips (subtle and cinammony, but not much tea flavour present), and the dark chocolate Cream of Earl grey (dark and smoky, with a fruity undertone). This one rounds out the quartet.

Now, the nice thing about the order was that I also got a sample of Coco Chai Roobois, so I get to taste the tea and the chocolate side by side. So there’s definitely an affinity between the two. However, I think the tea blend has more of a ginger/cardamom flavour, while the chocolate tastes more of coconut and cinnamon. The rooibos flavour is also more present in the tea.

This chocolate was a bit sweeter and not as milky as I expected, but overall, it’s quite nice.

Updated March 2016:

I’m a writer and editor who’s fallen in love with loose-leaf tea. I’ve also set up a site for tea reviews at http://www.booksandtea.ca – an excellent excuse to keep on buying and trying new blends. There will always be more to discover!

In the meantime, since joining Steepster in January 2014, I’ve gotten a pretty good handle on my likes and dislikes

Likes: Raw/Sheng pu’erh, sobacha, fruit flavours, masala chais, jasmine, mint, citrus, ginger, Ceylons, Chinese blacks, rooibos.

Dislikes (or at least generally disinclined towards): Hibiscus, rosehip, chamomile, licorice, lavender, really vegetal green teas, shu/ripe pu’erh.

Things I generally decide on a case-by-case basis: Oolong, white teas.

Still need to do my research on: matcha

I rarely score teas anymore, but if I do, here’s the system I follow:

100-85: A winner!
84-70: Pretty good. This is a nice, everyday kind of tea.
69-60: Decent, but not up to snuff.
59-50: Not great. Better treated as an experiment.
49-0: I didn’t like this, and I’m going to avoid it in the future. Blech.
