All the taste, none of the calories.

Certain to satisfy both your tea and chocolate craving, this loose leaf tea blend combines the bright, fruity notes of organic Grenadan cacao nibs with the rich maltiness of handcrafted Malawi black tea.

Sourced directly from Grenada by our friends at Pump Street Bakery in Suffolk, the cacao beautifully complements the tea we have sourced directly from a small, independent estate in the Shire Highlands of Malawi. No artificial flavourings, just pure indulgence.

Chocolate Tea

A delicious treat. Next chocolate tea cup of tea I will make a bit stronger and draw the flavour out more. But no complaints, I haven’t made it before so it’s good to ‘experiment’ until the right mood and flavour for personal taste is found. I can’t wait.

Does exactly what it says on the tin

Much more chocolaty that I had anticipated. It's for sure something to be enjoyed in smaller amounts as it's very rich. But if you're a chocolate fan and you want something that tastes very distinctive, this is for you.

Chocolate tea

This is the tea that started me using loose leaf tea - my daughter gave me a small pouch … and now I take some with me everywhere. Thanks Rare Tea Company!

Tasting Notes

"Deep, rich and malty, it has notes of caramel and burnt sugar. The addition of the cocoa nibs brings a huge richness to the proceedings, with a fuller mouthfeel and unmistakable chocolate hit. Hints of orange zest and blackberries. The nose is bold with the rich smell of high quality, earthy dark chocolate."

Quantity

Use 2.5 grams of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

Pump Street Chocolate

Pump Street Chocolate

Our friends Pump Street Chocolate share our ideas about sustainability and sourcing - they import directly from single estates and cooperatives around the world. Provenance and process is key to their product. They source cacao from the best growers who ferment and dry the beans at origin. They then tailor our roasting, grinding and conching to yield the best tasting chocolate possible.

The cocao nibs in our new Chocolate Tea blend are from Crayfish Bay, Grenada. The land, 13 acres of which is under cocoa, has five natural springs and is steep so has natural drainage. The soil is acidic and has high organic content due to the constant defoliage of the cocoa.

We blended the nibs with a hand-crafted black tea blended from harvests across a small, independent estate in the Shire Highlands in Malawi.
