Review of Chocolate Tea

6 of 104 of 53 of 570 of 100

How I like my tea: milk + 1 sugar

I'll preface this by saying, I think i rate tea best when i haven't had it to drink recently- otherwise I become slightly accustomed to it and I can't pick out the subtleties very well at all- and I've had this tea to drink quite a lot recently.

Despite being a taster of many different hot chocolates, I was skeptical when I saw this chocolate tea in a friend's tea cupboard. What would chocolate tea be like? I have always thought that chocolate and vanilla are not opposites, but compliments and I was delighted when I had my first cupful and tasted the glorious and delicious vanilla undertone. I really adore this tea. In fact, I now prefer it infinitely to actual hot chocolate- though i'm not sure the two should be compared. The tea has the lightness of tea; it is not thick as hot chocolate frequently is. The chocolate is not overpowering at all. I have never been a fan of strong assams, so for the best taste (for me) I try not to let the tea bag sit for more than 3 minutes. (note: this tea is loose-leaf: I just put it in tea pockets/bags)

I would most certainly recommend this tea. I will add that I feel that Canton Tea company is pricier- however they are more reasonable when buying larger quantities and I am willing to pay more for delicious tea from a company that appears to be making substantial organic and fair-trade efforts.
