      This combination is a little more interesting than the other chocolate teas. I like the carmel and vanilla notes.

    • 

      Another great dessert tea. The combination of chocolate, vanilla and caramel makes for a delicious tea. I added a dot of sugar and some creamer which made it even better!

    • 

      It is a good tea and it rebrews well. It tastes like a nice chocolate tea.

      To me it is very similar to this brands campfire smores which I enjoy a lot more. Maybe because it has chocolate chips and marshmallows, but I feel the campfire smores has a little something in the flavor department I personally prefer over this.

      Love this tea as a switch up from the chocolate truffle. I would say the it's less chocolate focused than the chocolate truffle, but brings a great caramel flavour in exchange.

    • 

      I can see why this gets compared to Campfire Smores. They are similar blends, but I find that I personally enjoy this one more. My first steep was the recommended time of 3 minutes at 212F. This wasn't quite strong enough for me, so on second steep I opted for 4 minutes at 212F.

      The dry tea smells slightly off-putting with a fake chocolate smell (despite visible nibs), but the brewed tea is lovely. Subtle notes of chocolate hit the palette first, followed by sweet caramel and a touch of vanilla. I detected zero astringency with this blend.

      The combination of chocolate, caramel and vanilla is classic, and the three work together quite well. This is a good dessert tea.

    • 

      Found this border-line undrinkable. It tastes like how a confectionary shop smells. The taste of it sticks to the roof of my mouth in an unpleasant way.

    • 

      It reminds me of those soft caramels with chocolate creme in the middle. Funny how I like the caramel flavor in this, but not in the caramel tea itself.

    • 

      I've tried chocolate teas from other places but never liked them; they were too bitter or chalky. The caramel in Tiger Eye helps sweeten the cocoa and balance it. It's a great treat!

    • 

      If you like caramel and chocolate, this is a thumbs up.

    • 

      On the nose this smells like chocolate malt balls to me. The taste is undeniably a malty chocolate (slight hint of Hershey's chocolate syrup) with a touch of caramel and cream. I really enjoy this tea, and even more so when it's used as a base for a tea blend.

    • 

      This is one of the black teas I think benefits from a slightly cooler steep temp. If the water is to hot it is very astringent and I feel like the flavor is lost. It still hangs on to some of the astringency at a cooler steep temp, but it's not near as strong, and the flavors are more distinct.

      As for the flavors, I don't really pick out one over the other, chocolate vs caramel, but it's more of a slightly artificial 'chocomel' flavor, inseparable yet recognizable.

      Goes well with milk and sugar.

      Steeped (1) 195F 3.5min, (2) 200F 3min

      Fantastic tea when cold-brewed, both on its own and mixed with other teas!

    • 

      Out of the packet, this smelled great - like caramel. To taste, it was quite bitter. I brewed at 190 for less than 3 min, but it just wasn't my favorite. Even after adding sweetener, it was more bitter than I really enjoy. Not bad, just not something I'll buy.

      I don’t know if it’s just me but I find the chocolate overpowers the caramel and vanilla notes. It's not my favorite in the least, though it would certainly be better if the flavors were more balanced.

    • 

      Love. It. The chocolate is present but the caramel is the star of this show. A touch of added milk and sugar make a perfect dessert cup.

    • 

      The chocolate flavor in this is just a little too fake for my tastes, but the caramel aroma is delicious as always.

      

      This tea is a hidden gem! I LOVE the combination of chocolate, vanilla, and caramel! It's simply wonderful. I have the different tea flavors in separate bags already, but I would consider buying this anyway since the particular blend is so delicious. Each flavor is present and none of the flavors overpower the others. I have nothing negative to say about this tea - I love it! It's one I could probably drink every day.

    • 

      Despite brewing at a lower temperature than recommended, I felt this tea was bitter. With my second steep, I added some cream and sugar and although the cream and sugar helped some, I still found it to have a bitter taste.

    • 

      Tastes strongly of caramel, with some chocolate and a nice black tea base. The tea isn't bitter, and has just a little astringency.

    • 

      Brewed at 212F for 3 min with rock sugar added

      This tea smells like caramel filled chocolate. The flavor is very close to that as well along with an unmistakable black tea flavor. I look forward to trying this tea again but in latte form. There is already a slightly creamy quality to it, and I would love to enhance that. This is the kind of tea that would be a perfect accompaniment to relaxing after a long day. I definitely recommend this tea to others.

    • 

      Im really happy this tea was not sweet, rather rich and warm. A really nice flavor

    • 

      I wish this one was more chocolatey. It's not bad, but I was expecting more of a sweet-tooth-satisfier based on the description.

    • 

      another one of my favorites when I want a flavorful tea with a little kick but isnt as strong as some chai teas, which I usually dont like. Perfect for the morning to get up snd go.

    • 

      really enjoyed and plan to buy more; the mix of flavors is excellent

    • 

      This is a rich, flavorful tea with chocolate nibs in it. It’s great for desert or a pick-me-up. I find it a little too rich to drink all the time (so 4.5 stars instead of 5) but it’s definitely in my usual tea rotation.

      

      This is the tea that got me back into brewing a daily cup (or more). It's robust but not overpowering, sweet but not sugary. It's my go-to first-cup-of-the-day tea, and it blends well with chai or earl grey.

    • 

      Love it. This is a great chocolate tea and it works well as a dessert tea too. Very yummy

    • 

      This is one of my go-to's at home. I love this rich and creamy taste with chocolate and caramel notes. I add a little half and half to my cup and its becomes a treat.

    • 

      One of my absolute favorite Adagio teas, and favorite dessert teas. Decadent and sweet - I need a bigger bag of this one!

    • 

      Perfect balance of chocolate and caramel. I enjoy this with a bit of sweetener to round it out.

    • 

      There's a faint taste of coffee to this one. The caramel isn't too strong, and everything blends well.

    • 

      One of my favorite black teas, it has a beautiful aroma and the chocolate and caramel notes add something special to normal black tea

      This tea has a nice aroma but i wasn't a fan of the taste. I couldn't taste the flavors too well.

    • 

      I love this tea! Perfect for those sweat tooth cravings with out the guilt!

      i like it paired with some sort of dairy and milk otherwise it is way to strong for me-prone to giving me caffeine headaches

    • 

      One of my favorites. I like adding vanilla or cream tea to it. Very good.

    • 

      A great dessert tea with the nice flavors of chocolate and caramel coming through nicely. Not something I would drink every day, but it's a nice treat to have once in a while instead of reaching for the cake or pie!

    • 

      A great morning tea, I'm eager to try it with some add-ins!

    • 

      I didn't think that I would like chocolate in my tea, but what a pleasant surprise this was. This tea has just the right amount of sweetness, that no additional sugar or substitute is needed.

    • 

      This tea has a delightful aroma but once brewed the chocolate and caramel is much, much more subtle. I enjoy this tea with a splash of almond milk added!

    • 

      A tasty, succulent flavor of chocolate and black tea! Goes lovely with some dried cranberries!

    • 

      I love this on a cold morning with a touch of oat milk to cut the bitterness.

    • 

      One of my favorites! Not too sweet, but the chocolate and caramel are both clearly present.

    • 

      I like that the chocolate and caramel flavors are a bit more subtle than some other caramel teas I've tried. It actually tastes like tea, too!

    • 

      Very light chocolate and caramel flavor, not enough to feel like a full dessert tea but makes a wonderful slightly sweet treat especially when made into a latte

    • 

      Delicious! Smells just like a tootsie roll and has a very smooth and chocolaty flavor that I didn't think could come from tea. 11/10 would recommend!

    • 

      my favorite black tea from adagio, slightly sweet and nutty.

    • 

      Nice tea, I really like the chocolate in this one. It's one of the more "boring" teas, but it is still very good.

    • 

      A perfect tea. Sweet and full bodied, I could drink this every day forever. Good by itself or with added spices.

    • 

      If I didn't try to keep my caffeine consumption down, I'd drink this tea almost every day. It's got those delicious chocolate undertones that go amazingly with milk.
