Today I am reviewing a tea that has been in my collection awhile. In fact, I bought this Dark Chocolate and Orange tea from Grand Central Terminal the last time I visited New York.
There was a beautifully arranged, aromatic stand full of spices and teas that caught my eye and nose and I bet you can’t guess what the company is called?
Spices and Tease of course!
- Black Assam
- Cocoa bits
- Orange bits
- Pink Pepper
Recommended Brewing Instructions
- Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of hot water
- Heat water to 195-205 degrees and steep tea for up to 3 minutes
Admittedly, the colours of the tea aren’t as vibrant as those in the website as I have had this tea for quite a while in the back of my tea cupboard!
I remember drinking this as soon as I bought it and the taste and aromas have not been impaired over time. A deep chocolate aroma with a perfect tang of orange, this is definitely something special. On brewing, the tea was a lovely rich caramel colour.
Have you tried any teas with a hint of cocoa? Do you like the chocolatey addition to your tea?
Let me know!
