Let us start off the new year with something different. Chocolate and orange tend to blend deliciously on their own but I am hesitant to even begin to think of what it will taste like in tea. This was apart of the The Tea Clubs $1 month deal back in December.
After ripping open the packet you are quickly hit with chocolaty notes. Stick your nose in the bag and an outstanding aroma of sweet, smooth chocolate and and tangy orange fills your nostrils. One should also point out too that this is not an artificial orange smell but that of fresh oranges. The aroma could be talked about all day so let’s move on quickly to the flavor. It brews up as a semi-cloudy amber. A dirty black tea if you will.
The flavor of the chocolate and the orange are quite a bit more subtle then they were in the aroma. Pu-erh, because of its earthiness, can be hard to blend with. Though I am enjoying this tea because you can definitely taste the pu’erh instead of it being masked like many flavored teas do to their base. With each sip there is something new to discover. Sometimes the orange is distinct but most of the time it’s the base that stands out. The chocolate creeps up and then disappears before the liquid slips down your throat.
Here’s the scoop!
