From Stash Tea

Have your cake and drink it too! Rich chocolate and cherry flavors, hibiscus, and black tea combine to create a dessert tea with all the decadence of Black Forest Cake, without the guilt. Great on its own and even more delicious with a splash of milk and a touch of sugar.

Ingredients: black tea, cocoa shells, hibiscus, chocolate flavor, vanilla extract, cherry flavor.

The dry leaf aroma of this teabag is cherry liquor. Yes, I’m talking a strong alcohol odor here. Alcohol is not a thing I enjoy, so an alcoholic flavoring in my tea is probably not going to go over well. The brewed tea aroma is more chocolate and maraschino cherries than liquor, so that’s good.

The flavor is a lot like the aroma. I’m getting chocolate and cherries and something slightly alcoholic tasting. The cherry in this is not natural cherry. It’s like drinking grenadine or the liquid that comes in those jars of sweetened, overly processed maraschino cherries. The chocolate flavoring also isn’t very good. Again, I get the impression of something overly processed.

Overall, this tastes artificial and flaky. It’s not an enjoyable cuppa for me. And I can’t really say that I would recommend it to others either. Life is too short to drink bad tea!

The description sounded scrumptious so of course I had to try! I was a little underwhelmed in the beginning. I added a splash of milk and could only smell the cherry. The chocolate flavor I was only picking up as an aftertaste. However, I was hit with the black forest cake flavor once I got through a little more than half the cup of tea. It was very nice and would have paired well with a chocolate dessert. I probably won’t reach for this tea often and I’ll have to play around with the length of time I let this one steep. But overall, it wasn’t bad!

Promises a rich flavor and chocolaty taste. It tastes like a couple of cake crumbs fell into water then dissolved. Very weak flavour.

This was on sale. I got excited. $2.50 for a box! Now I know why.
Should have checked the reviews first…
First, the bag was too heavy for the string. It popped right off when I went to remove the bag. Not a big deal, but still, a bad sign. Oh and there is an actual metal staple in the bag. Ick.
As for the tea well it was ok enough. A bit thick and bitter even though it wasn’t steeped that long. I added cream (thats all they have where I am now) and sugar to even things out. It did help, but I wouldn’t say it was great.
Overall I don’t have a problem finishing a cup of this. But I just don’t find anything lovable there. Not even the scent, which is usually what fools me. It’s just kinda neutral. That’s what I get for letting my love for black forest cake lead the purse strings…
Damn I wish I’d listened to my head (not my tea mania) and checked the reviews here first.


I’m bad for that too. And I agree with the staple. I’ll never understand why staples were ever thought ok with a teabag.


Funny, I’m actually thinking about cutting the bag open and putting it into a strainer. One that’s been treated to not go rusty!
When will we tea nerds ever learn :P


metal staple with the tea? or keeping the bag closed?


Kirk, its a staple used to close the bag of tea (the one that goes into the cup of hot water, not the one housing the bag of bags :)


Sometimes that tea mania is hard to resist! I’ve fallen culprit to its influence as well. ;)


Charoma, it’s a curse and a blessing I tell ya!!


Just saw this review after my post last night Indi—now I dont know if I want to buy it.

Black forest cake has long been one of my favourite desserts. There’s a bakery in town that makes it just perfectly from scratch and there really is nothing else like it. Unfortunately this tea is nothing like the actual cake. I’m really not tasting much cherry flavour at all and the chocolate cake flavour is quite flat with a weird almost cardboard like note. It’s slightly better with milk and sweetener, but not by a whole lot. And who’s bright idea was it to put hibiscus in a blend that has nothing to do with tart flavour profiles?!? Stash is one of the worst offender for this so I don’t know why I’m surprised.

If you were thinking of buying this tea because you love black forest cake, my advice is to save yourselves and take a pass on this tea.

I have the puerh version of this and it is pretty good, but way too expensive for the small amount of bags you get, and that is the only way they sell it. Not repurchasing.

I love the mix of flavors in this — chocolate and cherry cordial — but it’s all too weak. Just dial it up a few notches, Stash.


Try a smaller cup. Stash only gives you about 1.3g of leaf in each bag. That is about half what you need. I always liked a lot of the flavors. There just needs to be more tea.

I really liked this. It doesn’t taste all that much like black forest cake, but I liked the way the cocoa balanced the black tea, and the hint of cherry added just the right complexity for me. It’s definitely a rich, dark chocolate flavor, and not very sweet, but it wasn’t at all bitter either, and it tasted like an indulgence to me. I’ll be getting more of this in the future!

I am quite glad that I was able to convince the office supply lady to get some of this for the break room.


Lucky office—you get tea!


Bagged only, but it is better than no tea!


Only coffee drinkers subsidized where I live :( (Some days, that makes me really cranky.)


Sad day!
We have a lot of folks of Indian and eastern European ethnicity in our office, so tea is a must.

Sipdown (easy since it was my only bag).

I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I had it at work 2 days ago (work has been crazy lately hence my sporadic tasting notes). I don’t actually like Black Forest Cake as a cake, so I put off trying this tea, but it’s not that bad. Sweetened, it’s ok (slightly chocolatey and ever so slightly cherry-ish but not smack in your face cherry). I wouldn’t buy it but I probably wouldn’t turn down a cup.

It doesn’t taste much like Black Forest cake, but I like it. The flavor is mild, and every now and then I get a hint of cherry or chocolate. I find it very relaxing, and just got a second box.

That said, don’t get it if you want strong flavors or a true Black Forest flavor.
