Tea Review: Chocolate Orange

About This Tea

Supplier: Tea Shirt London
Ingredients: Pu Erh Tea, Cocoa Shells, Orange Peel, Orange Triangles, Chocolate Drops, Orange Bloom Petals, Aroma.
Brewing Technique: 100°C, 2-3 Minutes

Aroma

A milk chocolate sweetness mingled with the citric scent of oranges.

Flavour

There’s a clear taste to Chocolate Orange, that starts as a generic fruit flavour, but becomes more distinctly orange-like the further down the cup you venture. The chocolate elements serve to add a sweet warming coating to the taste without making the tea very chocolatey. The pu erh tea creates a layer of depth, with a rich, earthy and somewhat spiced note that makes each sip taste like a moist fruit cake.

Embellishments

Overall, the flavour becomes a little weaker in general with the addition of milk and changes in the cup are slight with the generation of a bitter dark chocolate tang and the orange notes depleting just a little, but not too much.

Final Thoughts

If you were hoping for a liquid Jaffa Cake, you might be disappointed. Yet the taste is deep with a little complexity, making it an enjoyable and warming cup. Perfect for dark chocolate lovers, the short brisk days of autumn and those looking for a new way to enjoy pu erh tea.

You can grab Chocolate Orange from Tea Shirt.
