My Morning Blend from The NecessiTeas. . . .

This robust tea is made from two simple, quality ingredients: black tea leaves and roasted cocoa beans.  This tea has everything that is good about hot bold black tea, hot chocolate, and coffee.  The black tea gives enough fresh tartness to keep the chocolate from being too sweet, and the roasted cocoa beans add a decadent smoothness that hints at the rich and nutty tones of coffee.  No matter how long I steeped the leaves, the blend stays strong and smooth, with no bitter astringency.

A Grown Up Chocolate Experience: Cacao Tea from Mi Cacao

Chocolate tea can be a decadent latte, or a great dessert-replacement.  But most of the chocolate teas I’ve tried, have black tea or honeybush tea as a base, mixed with chocolate chips and chocolate flavors.  This tea, Cacao Tea from Mi Cacao, is a completely different chocolate experience.

Choco Shou Pu-erh Tea from Camellia Sinensis

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Pu-erh This tea is available from Amoda Tea. Tea Description: f you’re new to pu-erh, this is a great introductory tea.
