An ode to our fave treat, this dreamy brew sees rich black tea get a perfectly decadent over-the-top choc hit with a sprinkle of cacao nibs, cocoa husks, chocolate drops and a dusting of cacao powder.

Brewing Guide: 1 tsp per cup, 2-4 mins, 100C/212F

Holiday Tea-son! I got a discounted holiday tea sampler pack in an after Christmas sale from T2 last January, and this was one of them. Figured I’d enjoy a cup while waiting for my pizza to show up. Tonight is going to be a Netflix and Chill sort of night.

This is a nice chocolately tea, and usually I find chocolate teas either a bit weak on the flavor or the mouthfeel seems a bit strange to me if I don’t make them as a latte. I’m actually really liking this one, because the chocolate flavor is actually very rich, but also because something about the flavor is reminding me of a chocolate liquour, so the mouthfeel of the tea is working for me even without adding milk. The tea isn’t super sweet, with some deeper dark cocoa notes, and just a touch of nice bittersweet dark chocolate to its flavor, but there is also a subtle underlying sweetness from the blackberry leaf that I’m finding very pleasant, and that berry note really works, as well; it makes me think of those speciality dark chocolates that have fruity flavor notes to them. I really do seem to taste a sort of dry, alcoholic liquor sort of flavor in the aftertaste on my tongue, and a slight astringency which may be from the black tea; I don’t really taste the black tea as far as a flavor, but I can tell it is here from the qualities of the drink.

I am sort of digging this. While I like this exactly as is, which I really can’t say for many chocolately teas, I do still want to try this latte-style and see how creamy milk will change up the game. Likely it will be more cocoa-like and less liquor-like, but I’m hoping it will still retain more of the dark chocolate elements rather than becoming milk-chocolately. I’m very curious to try it out!

Adding to my wishlist. I usually find chocolate flavoured teas so lacklustre.
