Sipdown! WOW. This is bitter. And strangely flavoured… not your typical orange, and I’m not really getting chocolate. This is an interesting tea though… I wonder if I just need more water here…

Either way, I guess this is the first time in a while that a 1-cup sample burnt me, because I totally ruined this, heh. Thanks for the sample, Sil – I may have to nab another one at some point to give this a second shot, since I so royally messed it up this time, apparently!

(I drank the tea in spite of the massive bitterness, and really am intrigued by the flavour… bleh why did I have to wreck it… :( )

ETA: Re-steeped this last night and am drinking it cold now – it’s actually really tasty! Orangey, chocolatey, and clovey. Definitely need to give this a second shot.

bitter oranges. No thank you. Going in to the swap box!

Kittenna

I need to have another cup from what you gave me. Of course, now that we have Butiki deliciousness en route, I may not want more of an inferior blend, haha.

Kittenna

So by that I mean please don’t get rid of it until I try it again :P

Sil

it’s in the box… if nothing else toss it on the spreadsheet

Overall light flavour. Dark chocolate taste with a hint of orange close to the end of the sip. The orange flavour is slightly bitter.

Thanks Sil for sharing!

Thanks Sil for the sample!

I tried it side by side with Bluebird’s Terry’s Tea to see which was the best chocolate orange tea. The answer: Not this one.

I steeped it for 3 minutes and the result was very bitter. Each sip left a tacky aftertaste, and it felt like my teeth were coated in… something? Not pleasant. It was simliar to that feeling you get when you eat super cheap chocolate and it’s waxy.

After the first few sips it got a bit better, but not enough for me to bother finishing the cup. Guess I’m not the only one indifferent to this one, so no hard feelings!

If you have more of this, it’s fairly tasty with a short infusion. I found out the hard way as well that this one is very finicky.

Cavocorax

Thanks, but I only had enough for the one cup. But after seeing how bitter it was at 3min, that totally makes sense.

This tea smells really really good when it steeps – like a rich cup of cocoa with a faint hint of orange (flavouring). But you can’t really taste much chocolate or orange in the liquor – I can only get cardamom out of it. Overall this mildly bittersweet tea is not unpleasant, but it can be rather disappointing once your expectation is raised by the lovely aroma.

*edit: as it cools the orange flavour becomes more salient – reminds me of Grand Marnier!

I have discovered I am not such a fan of chocolate in tea, nonetheless I am drinking this because I bought some! It does not really have much of an aroma at all. The flavor is not too strong, just a mild orange black tea with a hint of cocoa. What really makes this kinda special for me is the cardamom, I am a cardamom freak. I would probably not go out of my way to buy this again but it certainly is a good, pleasant dessert tea.

When I first started drinking this, I found it extremely bitter and overpowering. But after some time the taste started to grow on me. I still prefer it mixed with soy milk, but even alone it’s okay. It’s basically the tea version of eating a chocolate orange.

That has been my first impression as well! I found they had a store at a local Japanese market square (a fairly new addition) and their prices make me very happy! I will post a thorough review of it another day, but today for first tries, I mixed it with a grog my boyfriend made and I think I am a tad bit too inebriated to give a proper response. :)

I keep seeing most reviews for chocolate orange teas saying “well, it ain’t Butiki’s” so I was very happy to just try a sample of this rather than stock up. So thank you for the sample, Cameron B! The black tea is rather small, though doesn’t quite look like CTC and I see two pieces of what should be orange going into the infuser. The brew is rather dark, as expected. Sadly, I’m not tasting much in the way of chocolate or orange. The second steep mainly tastes starchy and bready and I don’t think I overdid either steep. So I’m glad I’m not in love with this one, if Lupicia is closing. I’m surprised Lupicia can’t nail this one, as they are usually great at flavoring. I won’t miss it like I miss Three Friends… I do have some of that I’m hoarding.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // 16 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 10 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep

I still haven’t found a chocolate-orange tea that I’ve liked enough to keep in my cupboard. Womp womp…

tea-sipper

Yeah, I can’t think of any great tasting chocolate orange teas either. I wonder if Anne has made one yet for 52Teas. If she has, I haven’t had it.

tea-sipper

Oh I just found Chocolate Orange Rooibos and Chocolate Orange Honeybush but who knows when those might be reblended. haha

Cameron B.

To be completely fair, I don’t often enjoy chocolate-flavored teas. So maybe I should just add orange to a naturally chocolaty black tea… ;)

tea-sipper

Yeah, that sounds like a reasonable idea.

Here’s something kind of funny…

“@Cameron B. That says a lot coming from someone who has 1481 tasting notes (and @tea-sipper who has 2662).” was actually meant to go to this thread. That after all this time you have found a choc orange tea enough to keep on your cupboard.

It worked on the other thread too though :D.

Having now tasted this back to back with the S&V chocolate orange, I have to bump the rating on this one a tad.

It’s a better tea than the S&V in two respects. First, the orange is actually taste-able, and second, the base is not as heavy.

I do note that the S&V was chocolate orange, and this is orange chocolate. So it could be the teas are trying to do two different things. Either way, though, if I am going to drink something that has the word orange in the title, I want the orange flavor to pop more than it does in the S&V.
