Black tea blended with cacao nibs, orange peel, and safflowers with chocolate and orange flavoring.
Chocolate Orange Bliss … sounds incredible, doesn’t it? Immediately images of those chocolate oranges that are available around the holidays come to mind. Yummy!
And this tea is indeed yummy. The black tea is brisk but not overly aggressive. It doesn’t attempt to overpower the flavors of orange and chocolate (and that’s a good thing because when you’re a chocoholic like me, nothing should stand in the way of the chocolate!) The black tea base is very smooth and mild … and even a little comforting. There is no bitterness to this tea. It is lightly astringent which accents the tangy flavor of the orange quite nicely.
The chocolate and orange are powerfully represented. The orange is vibrant and sweet. The chocolate is rich and creamy. The overall cup is delicious, very dessert-like. I like that this tea is strong enough to be enjoyed at breakfast (dessert for breakfast? Count me in!), and mellow enough to be enjoyed later in the day, and delicious enough for a mid-day respite when you just need to get away for a few moments of peace and enjoyment. This tea fits the bill!
