My next old holiday tea packet to work on! I love chocolate and orange as a flavor combination (I am known to just shove a gummy orange slice and a block of dark chocolate into my mouth at the same time and om nom nom) but I still haven’t found a chocolate orange tea that has really wowed me. Probably because the flavor of chocolate in teas tends to be more waxy/alcoholic to me, but I do tend to like the chocolate flavoring used by 52Teas, so maybe…?
Yes, the chocolate is very nice here. I still get a bit of that “chocolate liquer” note I commonly taste in chocolate teas, but it also has a fudgy/sweet quality to it, as well. The base has a nice warm baked bread quality to it which I think is aiding the chocolate a lot. I do taste the orange, but it isn’t quite as dominant as I’d prefer, taking a second seat to the chocolate. It has a nice pithy quality to it, though.
An enjoyable cup, but I think the search for my ideal chocolate orange tea is still on. (I do like this one much more than B&B’s Terry’s Tea, though).
I think I’ll try this as a latte next, as I think this flavor will really suit being thick and creamy.
