You’ll probably recognise Fox Tea Club’s name from a recent Let’s Talk Tea post in which I reviewed their Gummy Bear Black Tea and absolutely loved it. So I went into trying this with a few expectations and it’s safe to say that this blend lived up to all of them.
Ingredients: Black Tea, Cacao Beans, Caramel, Foxberry, Seabucktorn
Aroma: Malty, Woody, Sweet, Milk, Chocolate, Honey & Vanilla.
Colour: Tea – Dark Black & Dark Brown | Sprinkles – Cream.
Shape: Broken, twisted, medium leaves.
The dry leaves alone had be incredibly excited for this tea. As a lover of chocolate I was so happy that it had such a strong chocolate note.
Aroma: Malty, Woody, Sweet, Light Milk Note, Chocolate & Vanilla. The honey that I picked up in the dry leaves sadly wasn’t present once the leaves had steeped.
Colour: Dark Black, Dark Brown and Dark Green.
Shape: Large Broken Leaves. – Considering the dry leaves weren’t to big, I was really surprised by how much they unfurled.
Overall I really enjoyed this blend. Fox Tea Club did an excellent job in getting this blend to taste so much like chocolate without using any artificial ingredients. The Sprinkles provided a great natural sweetness and rounded off the blend really well. It’s incredibly well balanced though I will say I didn’t taste the foxberry or the seabucktorn at all but it didn’t stop me from enjoying the blend. I can see myself ordering some more of this In the future.
Overall Teacup Rating: 5 / 5
