 (29 reviews)

type: black

origin: sri lanka chai

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

We've taken one of the world's favorite indulgences - chocolate - and combined it with the exotic flavors and spices of Masala Chai to create the ultimate treat. Chocolate flavored Ceylon black tea is blended with cinnamon, ginger, and cocoa nibs. Soothing spicy cocoa notes, zesty, warming quality and soft liquid chocolate texture. Very seamless combination. Make it extra rich by preparing with freshly-warmed milk. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      New favorite! A warm, complex, not over-the-top-spicy tea with mild chocolatiness. Delicious!

      A lovely pairing of mild chai and chocolate. I steeped at 190°F for 3 minutes and sweetened with a raw sugar cube. Delightful! A second steep is a bit weak, however.

      Tastes more like a traditional chai, had a hard time pulling the chocolate notes from it

    • 

      I like chocolate, and I like chai, but I didn't really like them combined in this tea. It definitely smells like chocolate when I open the bag, but once brewed, I can't really taste anything other than chai.

      Yum! This tea had all the flavors of chai plus chocolate! I used my big cup, so I let the tea steep longer (about 7 minutes) to ensure that it was flavorful enough. I think some people found this tea weak in flavor, so I would recommend steeping it longer. I drank this with milk and sugar.

      A light chair with a good kick of ginger. The chocolate is overpowered at the start, develops a bit more as it cools, but is never really the star of the show.

      Steeped 2x, 200F 5min

      I got a sample packet of this through the CommuniTEA. I don't like chai, so my rating for this would never have been too high. It's about the same as most other chai teas. They all end up tasting the same - just that overpowering spicy flavor. I got a very subtle hint of chocolate, but it's not pleasant mixed with the spices. I'd definitely not choose this again. Chai lovers might enjoy this I suppose.

      The blend of chocolate and spice is much more harmonious than I expected it to be. The slight sweetness contrasts and rounds out the boldness of the spices to create one comfy and cozy cup.

      Makes a nice ginger and cinnamon chai. I don't taste the chocolate, but it probably is lending some smoothness and richness to the cup. No bitterness at all here. Brewed at 200° for a little longer than recommended to try to draw out some chocolate flavor, 7 minutes.

      I didn't like this as much as I thought I would have. I think the chocolate and spice combination was weird to my palette.

    • 

      The aroma was weird and slightly off-putting, and the taste just didn't jive with me, unfortunately.

    • 

      Had a cup of this in store and LOVED every sip of it. To me, this is the perfect blend of chocolate and chai- definitely a smoother, dessert-y chai as opposed to a spicy, full-bodied one.

    • 

      A pretty ok chai, but I wish the chocolate was a little stronger. The spices aren't bad at all, just feels more like a plain chai than anything special.

      I ma so surprised that i liked this, i normally am not a fan of chai.

    • 

      recently really adoring a chai tea... i tend to make a super large cup of strong tea, and drink it regardless of temp - chais hold up well esp adagio blends

    • 

      I used to adore this tea--a perfect blend of chai spices and cocoa flavor. But for the past year or so, the cinnamon flavor has changed to a "fake" taste, which unfortunately spoils the profile of the whole cup.

      Both the chocolate and chai spices come through when cold-brewed--would recommend!!

      delicious convenient chocolate chai. the chocolate complements without overwhelming

      An interesting Chai! However, the chocolate flavor is not very strong

      Yummy, great combination. I'm a great fan of both chai and chocolate so this tea is perfect for me!!!!

    • 

      I shared this tea with a self-confessed chocoholic friend and we both agreed that it was a good chai... but not the chocolate flavor wasn't as strong as we would have liked.

      This is a good chai. Not the best chai I've had though, and there isn't much of a chocolate taste.

    • 

      Pretty good. Not a favorite, but something interesting to try every now and then.

    • 

      Delightfully chocolaty and spicy, like a cup of spiced hot chocolate

    • 

      Yummy! The more I drink this, the more I like it. It is great with just a little milk. Perfectly spicy without losing the chocolate flavor. Really good mixed with the mocha but maté as well.

    • 

      Bitter and sweet and spicy all come together in this cup.

      this is the best chocolate chai i have tasted. it reminds me of Mexican hot chocolate, but a little bit lighter so you don't feel weighed down after enjoying a cup

    • 

      I tried this tea twice, and both times I did not like it, and ended up giving away the rest of my bag to my sister, who loves it.

      To me at least, the chocolate taste seemed very artificial. That might just be my strange taste buds though.

    • 

      I wasn't a fan of chocolate chai before I tried this blend! It is delicious! I honestly can't taste the chocolate, but the tea itself is great.
