From DAVIDsTEA

How it tastes
Sweet, creamy and chocolaty, with light coffee notes – like a rich mochaccino

This rich java-inspired tea is what mochaccino dreams are made of: Think cocoa beans, red peppercorns and sweet little green Christmas tree sprinkles. With lingering notes of cream, coffee and milk chocolate, it’s a well-balanced herbal blend that’ll make you wanna curl up with a frothy tea latte and let your mind wander. Dreaming of the holidays yet?

What makes it great
• We added festive little green Christmas tree sprinkles for a touch of sweetness.
• This very low-caffeine tea makes a killer holiday latte.

Ingredients
Cocoa bean, Apple, Chocolate chip (sugar, cocoa, soy lecithin), Sugar, Green tree sprinkles (sugar, rice flour, cocoa butter, potato starch, colours (riboflavin, FD&C Blue 1, Sodium Copper Chlorophyllin)), Natural (chocolate, iced coffee) flavouring, Pink peppercorn, Natural chocolate flavouring with stevia.

I was a bit skeptical of this one from the TTB. The name and description were appealing, but when I opened the package, it was all stuck together in a clump. But, it’s summer and there’s a gum in the ingredients list, so I figured that the weather had caused this clumping effect at some point. Squeezing and shaking the package de-clumped it fairly effectively, so I decided to try brewing it up anyway. And you know what? Credit where credit is due. The flavor here is on point! I added some oat milk and ended up with something that tastes very much like a mocha latte. Even my tea-averse partner commented on how the mocha smell wafted through the whole apartment. This turned out to be a really pleasant surprise, both hot and when it got cold. Others have mentioned stevia, but I’m not tasting any and there’s none listed in the ingredients of this formulation (thankfully), which makes me wonder if this is a particularly old bag.

Yep, every time I’ve ordered this, it’s essentially a solid block of tea, but surprisingly tasty!

Kaylee

Well that’s comforting, thank you!

My feelings about this tea are colored by a memory.

Not too long ago, I discovered the brand and grabbed an advent calendar in sachets instead of loose leaf. My partner had to complete field work someplace near some of our close friends, so we all packed up and spent two weeks in a hotel covered by the company.

I took to bringing my sachet down in the hotel for breakfast with my oldest, a toddler at the time, and tasting the tea while she bounced around in her seat and we figured out what we were doing that day. Some of them were misses, but I was so surprised by this one. It smelled like coffee and chocolate, tasted sweet and mild, and really turned tea on its head for me.

It is sweeter than I would prefer, but when I drink it now I remember that trip, that hotel, that silly little girl and all the adventures we got to take when she was tiny, and so I’ll always take an opportunity to enjoy a cup.

DAVIDsTEA Advent Calendar 2021 – Day 10

Hmmm a fruit tisane. I do like coffee-flavored teas, so the name sounds yummy. It also smells quite yummy in the tin, rich chocolate and coffee scents. And super cute Christmas tree sprinkles!

Blah, stevia again. And sugar, because just one sweetener isn’t enough apparently… :/

Anyway. The coffee is nice, but the chocolate is super artificial-tasting, which is not a surprise. Chocolate flavoring pretty much always tastes highly artificial to me. I get a touch of apple in the beginning of the sip, but otherwise it tastes like a mocha-flavored Tootsie Pop.

So yeah – very, very sweet and artificial. But honestly, it’s not horrible or anything. Just not something I can drink because of the overwhelming sweetness. :(

I didn’t like this one. It was just way too sweet and artificial for my tastes. The Christmas tree sprinkles were super cute though.

Why do sprinkles have to be so darn charming? :P

If they’d only left out the stevia, I think I would have really loved this tea. It had a mouthwatering aroma and a delicious flavor of chocolate and coffee, marred by the overly sweet stevia. I added some milk to cut the sweetness and that was better, but it still had that stevia aftertaste that I really don’t enjoy.

I just don’t like blenders deciding how much and what kind of sweetness I need. Has often ruined many teas that would otherwise be quite tasty.

Inkling

Totally agree!

I really need to remember to drink this fresh before the stevia gets old…

I bought this for my sister for Christmas, and she let me try a little. The scent of this tea fills the room, and it’s totally delicious. It’s pretty good both with and without milk. You get a mocha vibe from it without it being too strong. It’s sweet and desserty. Really nice. You might want to overleaf it because it could be a little thin for some people or maybe too appley – for me it was great.

So I received my order of a handful of Davidstea’s (mostly established favorites).  This one I wavered on…. I was questioning the apple base fitting with the mocha flavoring.  I didn’t want the apple to show up in the cup at all.  I’m glad to report: it doesn’t.  It’s mocha and slightly cocoa and slightly creamy and sweet. NO APPLE.  So the blend does what I want it to do and I’m happy with it!  How could I not be, with those cute tree sprinkles??  It will (hopefully) curb any sweet cravings and also taste mighty nice as a no-caffeine late night option…but with the flavor of mocha it will SORT OF keep me awake? It will trick me a bit.  The lingering flavor is lovely.   The second steep had almost the exact same flavor as the first.  I think I steeped it perfectly.  I’m glad I decided to go with this one when it was much cheaper than usual.  The only thing is any splenda here might age this one quickly.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 5 minutes after boiling // 4 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 15  minute steep 

Flavors: Mocha

I hope she likes it! It seems like people either love it or hate it.

Day 10 of our Advent Tea Swap. From amandastory516.

What a fun tea! There are little candies in here shaped like trees plus sugar crystals and pieces of chocolate. Amanda gave me a TON so I opted for two teaspoons today.

I had someone come up to my desk while it was steeping and they asked if I was having hot chocolate. That is indeed how it smells. The taste, however, is not hot chocolate. I mean, there is some chocolate flavor there, but it’s artificial like an artificial sweetener. It’s cloudy too after steeping which isn’t very appetizing. There’s almost a plastic sort of taste to it also which is strange.

This was such a surprising cup for me because the flavor is so much different than the aroma coming from the dry and steeped blend. I know I’ve seen some reviews where others have loved this tea, but I’m thinking it’s not for me.

Flavors: Apple, Artificial, Chocolate, Cocoa, Marshmallow

I had very similar thoughts on this one, unfortunately. So many people like it, so I was hoping you’d be one. I’m sorry!

Shae

Oh no, don’t be sorry! That’s one of the best things about tea – we can all enjoy different things. I lot of people do like this one, so I guess you and I are just both in the same camp. :)

I found this tea pretty gross, and had to dump it after just a couple sips. The apples create an extremely odd flavor profile against the strong coffee notes. It is also sickeningly sweet, and was overly my main issue. A solid nope for me.

As another reviewer mentioned, this is phenomenal with a touch of vanilla or hazelnut creamer. I like Silk’s soy creamer and it has a lot of flavour but in a way that compliments the coffee bean, toasty, and chocolate notes.
