First I have to say that this tea company cracks me up but then again I tend to have a twisted sense of humor! Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix is the first of what I hope is MANY of their teas I will sip on!
As an individual my language can be quite colorful so I appreciate the badassery behind the product descriptions, however, since this site wants to remain PG-13 some of what we put here on the site may be altered a tad.
Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix makes me laugh, smile, and enjoy this tea and various memories that go along with it! I immediately ‘got the reference’ to the 2001 Movie that was so bad it was funny!
Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix ingredients include: Assam Black Tea, Rooibos, Cacao Nibs, Orange Peel, and Rosehips. I want to take this time to point out what is so special about some of these ingredients. The Cacao Nibs are among the most strong tasting I have had in any tea! Impressive! The Orange Peels are OUTSTANDING as well…they plump up to large chunks of citrusy goodness once infused! The Rosehips are a nice addition but sit in the background and I’m totally ok with that. The Rooibos gives the overall taste an added sweetness that works out well. The Assam is damn good, too!
Yes…the aroma of Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix is what smacks you in the face right away but the taste follows suit! If you grew up on dark chocolate and/or Orange Chocolate, specifically you MUST try this tea!
As for the second infusion – it’s still good! It’s not as powerful but you can get a very decent second infusion out of this Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix. Two thumbs up from me on this one!

I’m always up to try Orange Chocolate ANYTHING!! I’m originally from the Buffalo, NY, area and Orange Chocolate is HUGE in Buffalo! When I moved from that area several years ago many people I spoke to regarding my love of orange chocolate had never even heard of it before! I was AMAZED at this fact! I still am today! So…if you have never tried orange chocolate before PLEASE do – at least once in your life!
Anyhow…When I received an assortment of teas from Sands of Thyme I HAD to try this one first!
This smells much like Orange Chocolate right out of the package. Once infused add spices to that aroma and that is what you have here! It’s medium brown in color – post infusion.
This tastes like Orange Chocolate and cardamom. It’s a really good taste. It’s not heavy on the dark chocolate aspect but that won’t interrupt me from enjoying this tasty cup of tea! Ahhhhh!
