From Dessert by Deb

Peanut butter and jelly, ketchup and mustard, cream and scones: we’re talking classic, never-go-out-of-style combinations and chocolate and orange is undoubtedly one of them! Dessert by Deb’s Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake tea is a twist on a special British dessert, namely, chocolate biscuit cake, a favourite of both HRH Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William on their birthdays!

A black tea and rooibos fusion, this fudgy, chocolatey blend is bursting with bright, zesty orange, deep and delicious chunks of dark chocolate and cacao nibs, and the “biscuit”: crunchy Canadian maple flakes that melt into the tea for that hit of warmth and sweetness.

Certified organic ingredients: Fair Trade Rooibos, Black Tea, Vanilla, Orange Peel, Oranges, Giddy YoYo Cacao Nibs, Giddy YoYo Dark Chocolate, Canadian Maple

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 212F for 4-6 mins

This one is super tasty, but we both only got orange. No chocolate, no biscuit, sadly. I do enjoy an orange rooibos though, so that’s okay. I did think it was a bit odd, considering the sizable chocolate chunks, but alas!

This one tastes a little bit like Fauchon’s L’Automne with that real orange in there.

Thanks for sharing Cameron!

I am super curious about this one! But I am scared it will just taste like orange tea, although Deb has some awesome orange blends that really pack a punch.

I would think the rooibos would add an oatmeal like quality, and the chocolate would melt into the tea?

I will request this one as a sample next time! :)

Courtney

Perhaps more flavours will come through for you! :)

Thank you! I hope so ha-ha! :)

So I chose this as my free 75g bag of chocolate tea during one of Deb’s weekly specials. I ended up opening it for a swap, and it smelled so good that I’ve been wanting to have some for a few days now. Well, tonight was the night!

This was a bit difficult to scoop out, as it’s a mix of many things and the orange pieces are quite large. Hopefully I got a good amount of the chocolate, cacao, and maple flakes. This is a blend of rooibos and black tea, but looked like mostly rooibos so that’s how I steeped it.

It smells like a delicious creamsicle… The taste isn’t quite as good as the smell, but still yummy. I love the orange flavor from the slices because it tastes so authentic, and it has a good balance of sweet and acidic. The chocolate is a bit more subdued than I would like, but who knows if I got a decent amount in my basket. There is something a bit cakey here, and I wonder if it’s the combination of the rooibos with the maple?

I quite like it! I’m always impressed by how much flavor Deb manages to get into these teas without adding flavoring. The orange here is particularly surprising to me, I wouldn’t think those orange pieces would contribute so much! This tea makes me think of a trifle with cake, cream, and orange, and a sprinkling of chocolate shards on top.

(P.S. – I looked up chocolate biscuit cake and OMG, it’s going on my list to make!)

Yuuuum.

VariaTEA

I looked it up because you did and it looks delicious!

Also for this flavor profile, I think Necessiteas is my favorite (next to Butiki, of course).

Cameron B.

Maybe I’ll try that one someday. Honestly I kind of avoid Necessiteas because I’ve heard so much about the stock issues and that would definitely frustrate me. :P

VariaTEA

I definitely get that. Last time I ordered it was a restock that she was like 3 days late for and stuff literally sold out while I was checking out (as in I lost things out of my cart). And that was BEFORE she even officially announced the restocks.

Silent Kettle

I would love to try the Necessiteas, but most of the items I am interested in are out of stock, and it can get expensive if you order from Canada.

But yes, this tea sounds lovely. I’ll probably get 25 grams next time I order from Deb. :)

Having my second steeping of this. I drank the first one faster than expected while working, but enjoyed the flavors when I’d stop to think about it. The orange is the most present flavor in the cup. The chocolate hides behind a little rounding out the orange. I didn’t see many tea leaves in this mix, it was mostly rooibos, but I’m not getting that awful rooibos woody dry mouth finish. I don’t know that I’m getting much caffeine either, something I’ll have to remedy with my next selection. Not sure about the biscuit cake part of it as it’s mostly a tasty orange chocolate.
Thanks for the sample, VariaTEA!

I want to request a sample of this next time to try! I am a bit hesitant to because I do not mind there being rooibos in my tea, but I dislike it being the predominant flavour like you said. But I am glad you enjoyed this blend! :)

Courtney

The name of this one sounds so good! I’m glad to hear about the rooibos too.

This one smells amaaaaaazing! Sadly the taste doesn’t quite translate as intensely as I want it to, but it’s still a good tea. I think as far as chocolate orange goes, now that butiki is gone I’m going to have to go with necessiteas version except it’s never in stock! So this might be a decent replacement for when I really want that orange chocolate flavour. I’m ok with the room so in this, though why it can’t just be a black tea, I don’t know lol. Need to try this with a little sugar to see how that changes things.

Courtney

Looove chocolate orange!

tea-sipper

Necessiteas is such a tease… they should have added an ‘e’ to their name!!! Not much is ever in stock, which is why I’ve never ordered.

I’ve been into chocolate orange for a while. My goal has been to replace Butiki’s amazing chocolate orange tea and this is not the replacement. It’s good but it’s a bit too rooibos-forward for my tastes. Rooibos and orange with some chocolate.
