drank #10 Chocolate Orange by Tea Revv
249 tasting notes

This does smell exactly like one of those chocolate oranges you can buy around Christmas! It has that same powdery orange and dry chocolate fragrance. Unfortunately, the tea itself doesn’t have too much taste…I’m going to try using double the leaf next time to see if that helps. Right now, it’s mostly just basic tea with a very faint aftertaste of both chocolate and orange. Withholding final judgment until I try with more tea!

Update: I have now tried it with (a lot) more tea, and it just didn’t really change the flavor. I think you do need to go a little heavier on the leafing than not, though. I don’t actually dislike it, there’s just not much to like. It’s still better than not, it’s basically a fairly smooth black tea with faint chocolate and faint orange notes. I just wish there was MORE of that good stuff! I’ll now assign a numerical rating to match that.

Flavors: Chocolate, Orange

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
