From 52teas

I am a boba FANATIC. My favorite location for boba is a fairly new location – at least to my area. My two favorite drinks are their Black Milk Tea (which uses an Earl Grey tea as their black tea base) & their Cocoa Cream Drink (which doesn’t actually have tea in it, but it does have chocolate).

My inspiration for this blend came from those two drinks – I wanted to create a tea that was the best of both drinks – Earl Grey plus chocolate.

I started with a blend of black teas (Assam, Ceylon, Yunnan & Vietnamese) & added cold-pressed oil of bergamot, cacao nibs & shells, plus some vanilla bean for additional creaminess (because when it comes to boba, the creamier, the better, right?)

YUMMY! This blend has that bright, citrus-y tang of bergamot, with a creamy, decadent chocolate note. It isn’t boba but it is a great base to use with some tapioca pearls! It’s also organic, vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free & all natural!

I get more chocolate here than EG, but it’s still a tasty blend with some sugar and milk. It’s much better cool. The chocolate is so authentic. There’s some element here that’s almost salty in a way I enjoy. It reminds me of the rocky road blend from a few years ago. The resteep tastes similar to the first.

I just finished sipping this tea a little bit ago. Yes, It’s 3am – my sleep schedule is way off right now: I’m up all night and sleeping all day. It’s actually – not “off” for me, because I’m generally a night owl, but it’s gotten a bit more extreme over the last couple of weeks.

Anyway – I love how this tea came together. It’s one that I’ve been wanting to create for a while now, because I love chocolate and orange together. Since bergamot is an exotic orange with a fancy moniker, I thought chocolate would be a good choice for a blending companion of one of my very favorite tea flavors (aka bergamot).

I overleafed this particular pot of tea, because I had just a little bit left in the pouch after I measured it out – and rather than keeping less than enough leaf for another pot, I figured I’d just add more tea to this pot. I found that with the overleafing, the chocolate flavor really intensified. It tasted like dark cocoa powder – like a really, rich chocolate fudge flavor of a brownie batter – no complaints.

2023 sipdown no. 52

The cacao itself is present with some mellowing from the vanilla (I’m guessing). The bergamot peaks out toward the middle/end of the sip. If I really focus on each sip (which I generally don’t as there’s always something to be done between work and school), I can get the ingredients clearly, but I drank most of this sample half hot/half cold as I tried to catch up on all the things and it’s not necessarily the best tea for that (obv that’s on me!) as it came across more muddled than anything.

Thanks for sharing such a generous sample Kelmishka! :)

This is a good, mild Earl Grey. The bergamot is really subtle in this tea, which is an interesting change of pace from a typical Early Grey. Based on what they were trying to go for with this tea, the more subtle bergamot flavor is supposed to accentuate the boba/chocolate flavor of the rest of the tea. It does taste a little creamy. I’m not really tasting a forward note of any particular flavor; all subtle flavors seem to combine to create a mild black tea. Good for an upset stomach, I think.
