This is tea 19/50 I bought in a Stash Assortment. My disappointment with the assortment continues. Tasted like weak coffee. Very little chocolate flavor. S did not like it.

You know those brownies with the sprinkles and tarry fudge on top that everyone remembers as good only because nostalgia clouds their memories? Yeah, this smells exactly like that in the bag. A bad omen. It smells sort of less like late 90s after school playdates as steam. And the color is pretty. This is unfortunately the nicest thing I can say about this teabag.
By the end of brewing, this stuff smelled passably like hot cocoa mix, and I was expecting it to be alright, like I wouldn’t grimace if someone handed me a whole box.
It ain’t alright. There’s a muddy black tea taste at the front of the tongue, which a smear of chalky chocolate rapidly paints over. I don’t know how this is supposed to taste like white chocolate whatsoever; there’s none of that creamy sweetness. There’s a walnut ghost again, which I now think is the cocoa husk’s huskiness. The aftertaste is of coffee.
It is not what I want out of tea, or cocoa, or coffee. It’s a sadder hallway for the walnut ghost to haunt and nothing better at all.

The best way to describe this tea is “meh.” It isn’t bad, but it isn’t awesome. I think my biggest gripe is that it is a very weak tea. Stash is notoriously weak in my opinion. This tea tastes okay, but I wouldn’t buy it again and don’t crave it like I do my other teas. It has a very muted chocolate taste, like gas station hot chocolate where too much water was added. It also has strange floral undertones which I find compete with the already light chocolate flavour. And mocha? I don’t taste any coffee at all. It is a drinkable tea, and I will use it up but I wouldn’t buy it again as I prefer a stronger cup. This might be your jam if you like very very light tea.

First attempt at this one wasn’t particularly successful…thin and not much mocha. However, I wasn’t being especially attentive to preparation or drinking, either one. This may need some beefing up with milk and sweetener. We’ll save a final judgment call for a cup that I wasn’t guzzling while working on a writing assignment, tending to laundry, and making cookies.
The cookies turned out fine…this season, I’m missing my mom and sister so for some unknown reason, I am compensating by making some of their Christmas recipes that I remember fondly. (Mind you, I generally do not cook or bake; I reheat and assemble.)
The cookies in question are made in a skillet, not in an oven—like Rice Krispie treats with dates, gumdrops, and nuts, rolled in powdered sugar.
Very thin, tastes almost like coffee grounds in water. The mocha flavor with more chocolate would make an appearance occasionally, but not enough to keep drinking the cup. Maybe improved with milk? The flavor is conflicting because my brain keeps wanting it to be a creamy coffee drink. Tasted 10.2018

Stash is discontinuing this flavor, so I figured I’d try it before they did.
It’s alright, but really not that great. It might be better if they didn’t try to cram way too many different things in it. There’s chocolate flavoring, white chocolate flavoring, tiramisu flavoring, and coffee flavoring in there along with cocoa shells and cinnamon. As a result, it’s hard to pick anything out; it’s a muddle of chocolate, white chocolate and cinnamon with a vague hint of coffee in the background and oh yeah, some tea and possibly tiramisu. Maybe if they left out the cocoa shells, chocolate flavoring and tiramisu flavoring, sticking only to white chocolate, coffee and cinnamon it’d have been better.
I’ll drink the rest of what I have since it’s not terrible, but it’s not like I’d stock up on it before it’s gone.
My first time tasting this tea I used about 8.5 oz of water and added nothing to it it was horribly disappointing, this time around I used a little under 8 oz of water and steeped it for at least 7-8 minutes using boiling water. Then I added a bit of ceylon cinnamon, penzley’s spice mixed cinnamon , and a bit of Silk unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. I found that this method really brought out the tiramisu/white chocolate flavor undertones. It is a soothing sugar free dessert at bedtime.

My introduction to this tea has been awful. It tastes like wood with fake chocolate and artificial sweetness. It is also bitter. What in the world did I do wrong? I brewed it at 205 for 4 minutes, which is within the recommended parameters. I tried it with and without milk- just gross. As in barely drinkable. This is the sachet version- not even sure if it comes loose leaf. Either way, I’m scared to go for round 2- please send help!

I LOVED my first cup of this tea. I was thrilled! Finally — a chocolate tea I was thrilled about…and then I made myself another cup another day. It was awful. I thought I did something wrong. Where was the tiramisu flavor I so thoroughly delved into and swam through? Where was the delicious chocolate and coffee?! WHERE?! WHAT HAD I DONE TO MAKE THE FIRST CUP SO GLORIOUS?! Alas, I could not replicate the first cup’s heavenly flavor and aroma. This tea is awful and depressing. I stuck a sticky note on it that read “FREE!!!!” on my condo’s entry hall table and some poor soul took it. Maybe they had better luck?

When I first purchased this tea i was quite skeptic, I was sure that the tea’s name would overshoot as most tea’s with ambitious titles do. I couldn’t have been happier to be wrong. The tea starts out with a bitter and sweet hint of black tea and cinnamon which fades beautifully into a sweet chocolate aftertaste (yes it even tastes like white chocolate)… I’m not quite sure how they did it , but they hit the nail on the head with this one. it’s the closest thing to coffee you’ll drink that is actually a tea, and that kind of blows my mind. This is the second stash tea blend that I have tried and I’m happy to say they have a new customer .
