Tea: Cocoa Canela )Organic

cocoa canela

This was from one of my samples from my last order from DAVIDs TEA. I was wondering how well this would taste with the chocolate in it. Chocolate teas don’t always seem to do to well. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Even with out any creamer it was very chocolaty. Plus the cinnamon in it was awesome, not too little, not too much. Just a good amount of cinnamony goodness. Though if your not a fan of cinnamon, you should probably pass this one up.

After having a few sips of this I thought I might try to put a little bit of cream or milk in it to see how it does. Sadly we were out of Almond Milk, so I had to try to use 2% milk. Now I am horrible when it comes to warming up milk. It always seems to get that weird flavor or I end up curdling it. This time it was weird flavor, plus it subdued the chocolate cinnamon flavor; but in a bad way.

The only thing I kinda have a beef with this tea is the choice in mate’. They used Yerba mate’, which is the greener, lighter flavored one. I wished they had used toasted mate’. I think it would have complemented the flavor a lot more then the Yerba.

Overall it was a good tea. Not something I am dying to go out and buy, but not bad by any means. I would recommend it to someone who likes hot chocolate and cinnamon.
