I type this in West Virginia, which might be as far, thematically, from Paris as possible. I need, very much, to channel some class.
This blend, Brunch In Paris, is a chocolate/orange mix of black and honeybush. The honeybush is naturally sweet, so it and the chocolate are the primary flavors here. The orange is more subtle, but it does sneak up from the corner now and again to whisper in your ear. (Creepy. Why did this suddenly get creepy?)
I’m not sure why orange and chocolate are supposed to say “Paris,” but then, I haven’t been there in 2 decades.
It really says to me more “Easter.” The sweetness reminds me of children in floral dresses with doily collars. The chocolate is tucked into brightly-colored eggs scattered throughout back yards across the nation. The orange is OBVIOUSLY the ever-present ready-to-smash chocolate orange. If your Easter did not contain a chocolate orange, you have not lived. Forget everything. Get out there and buy a chocolate orange when Easter rolls around. It is, after all, the next big holiday.
Wishing you lots of love from middle America, Paris. I’ll visit you again someday.
Here’s the scoop!

We think that a good cup of tea can transport you to someplace special. And that’s what we had in mind when we created our fresh, flavorful blend of chocolate orange tea. It reminds us of brunch in a fine cafe in Paris, the city of light.
To create this magic we pair a simple blend of black tea and honeybush tea with cacao nibs and orange peel / orange extract. It’s delicious and will give you an emotional boost. Excellent with a splash of honey and milk.
