Just like a good Valentine’s date, An Evening with Eros tea blend comes bearing roses and chocolate.
There’s enough of both ingredients that you can see chocolate chips and petals scattered throughout the dry leaf. The namesake of this blend is Eros, the Greek god of love, and since this is a decaf rooibos blend, it’s the perfect brew for a late night out or a cozy evening in.
The vanilla rooibos is the star player in this blend, coupled with gentle swirls of chocolate and flowers. Raisins and elderberries bring additional sweetness and play well with the natural woody and caramel notes of the rooibos.
This blend is easy and drinkable, though not the most unusual blend I’ve tried. I think this tea is best for its novelty for a romantic occasion.
With Valentine’s Day on my mind, I find myself reaching for An Evening with Eros to help treat myself to something festive and to keep me warm on a February night.
Here’s the scoop!

I’ve never experienced 100% cacao tea before. I’ve seen it in different tea blends but I’ve never enjoyed the tea on its own. I was quite excited when MiCacaco contacted the SororiTea Sisters to see if we were interested in reviewing. I had so many ideas on how I personally could use this tea.
First off, this tea on its own is amazing. I’m not a chocolate fan but even I found myself craving this tea as an afternoon snack. Brewed up with 8 oz of prepped water, this tea will curb any sweet tooth craving you may get. At least for me it did. When this tea is brewing you get a wonderfully rich chocolate fragrance that makes you instantly start to drool. I was surprised by how much this tea actually had me staring at the timer. I couldn’t wait for the 5 minute steep to finish. Rich chocolate notes greet you first sip in. They remind me of a dark chocolate taste but without the bitter notes that seem to always detract me from eating dark chocolate. This tea was really delicious and one that you find yourself coming back for me. Simple but spot on chocolate heaven. . even for me.
But I have to say, as much as I loved this tea on its own, where it really shines is when you start experimenting and using this tea in different ways. This tea is so incredibly versatile. I’ve found myself adding this tea to my coffee lattes (I froth up this tea -brewed for a few more minutes- with some cream) to create a chocolate frothed finish.
I’ve also started adding this tea to my morning fiber smoothie. And holy cow is this tea giving me all the chocolate loving I need to spruce up this meh drink I’ve been making.
Every morning I take my leftover coffee (sometimes I also use a English breakfast tea or a black flavored tea), cream, ice and a banana along with a tablespoon of psyllium husk and blend for a smoothie to enjoy on my morning commute. The other day I thought that my morning smoothie needed a kick of chocolate so here is what I did.
-Brewed up English Breakfast Tea from Pinky Out Tea (3 minute steep)
-Brewed up MiCacao Cacao Tea in a seperate infuser for 6 minutes
-Mixed up a banana with the MiCacao Cacao Tea and poured all ingredients including a tablespoon of psyllium husk and fat free cream into my blender with ice.
-Blended all together and enjoyed
Chocolate Banana Tea!! This morning drink was simply amazing and one I’ll be enjoying for time and time again.
So I guess what I’m trying to say is check this lovey organic cacao tea out. You’ll be incredibly happy that you did! All that chocolate goodness with 0 calories. . doesn’t get much better than that!
