Now this is what I call chocolate! Imagine a trip to a Dutch chocolatier, that will entice an idea of this tea. This is chocolate blended together to create dark, sweet and chocolatly tea.

I won’t lie to you, I am an absolute chocolate snob and everyone knows it. I have no problem paying $5+ for a quality chocolate bar and savoring it slowly over the week when I want to treat myself. After drinking five chocolate teas in a row I have decided that I really don't care for the chocolate creme flavoring that Della Terra has used in many of its chocolate blends. It is incredibly artificial tasting and not at all what I was wanting out of a chocolate tea. I wish they had gone the extra mile and used a higher quality chocolate. The quality of chocolate can really make or break a tea when it is supposed to take center stage, as it does in this case.
I did like that they used mini chocolate chips, even if the flavor was lacking, and didn’t add sprinkles. So many companies like to dress up their chocolate teas with sprinkles, but I’ve never understood sprinkles in tea. They tasted great when I was five, not so much now that I am an adult.
My Rating: 61/100
Would I order this again? No. I've discovered that artificial chocolate flavor really isn't my thing.
