We’ve been on a bit of a chai kick lately, but can you blame us this time or year? Today we’re reviewing a spin on the traditional favorite, Chocolate Chai from Adagio Teas. In addition to all of the wonderful chai spices we’re used to, cocoa nibs are added to the blend. Like most chai teas, this teas is so pretty before steeping. As it steeps you can start to smell the chocolate blend with the chai spices and black tea. For me, the taste was just what I wanted it to be, spicy and strong with a hint of chocolate coming through. The only thing I didn’t love, was the texture – it was too thin. I added a touch of milk and some cinnamon infused honey. That did the trick and I ended up with the perfect cuppa!

 I like my tea with milk and honey. Typically I like strong tea so I’m able to add lots of both. This tea would have gotten a 5 if it was a bit stronger. It was slightly weaker than I’d like but with a small splash of milk and a good squeeze of honey it was quite tasty. The honey enhanced the chocolate flavor for sure. If you like a strong tea add a little extra loose leaf then you would normally in the cup. Nice flavor, a bit like dessert for breakfast! This is a perfect fall and winter tea and I’ll be keeping some in my cabinet for the next few months.
