I’m on the fence about chocolate teas, so what did I go and do last week? I ordered some chocolate tea samples, of course! It seemed like a good idea at the time. Personally, I blame my sweet tooth, it has been acting up lately.
Even after trying these five chocolate teas from Della Terra I'm still a bit on the fence. I only loved one of them and the rest tasted so similar I wondered what the point was in including them in this sampler. I think that a bit more variety in the flavor department is in order. They have several other chocolate teas that I think would be a better representation of their current offerings.
My biggest complaint ended up being with the chocolate creme flavoring they have used in several of the teas. I'm a chocolate snob, I'll admit, and it may be one of the reasons why I didn't care for it. All that being said, I do think this would make a fun gift for a someone who loves chocolate or tea.
Overall Sampler Rating: 69/100 Individual reviews will be posted soon, so make sure you check back on Tuesday.
How did I arrive at that number? I added all five ratings together and divided by 5. Simple Math, even I can do it :) But seriously, check out my about page for more information about how I come to my rating numbers and feel free to contact me if you have questions.
Would I order this again? Probably not for myself since I'm still not a fan of chocolate tea, but as a gift around Valentine's Day for a tea lover, definitely.
