Tasting Notes: Rich and silky dark amber liquor with creamy flavors of vanilla and chocolate.
Coco Shou is a pleasurable and nostalgic blend of black tea, miniature chocolate chips, and vanilla. Every time we brew a cup of this gorgeously decadent chocolate tea, we swear it brings us straight back to the feeling of warming up with a cup of hot chocolate after busy childhood afternoons spent building forts and making angels in the snow.
One of our shop's guilty pleasures, this chocolate tea is a guaranteed hit on chilly winter mornings for chocoholics of all ages. The earthy and woody aromas of the oxidized black tea pair perfectly with mouth filling chocolate and soothing vanilla. (Please note: this scented black tea contains caffeine.)
Ingredients: Black Tea, Chocolate (sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract) Natural & Artificial Flavors.
Scented teas should be brewed according to the base tea leaves. White and green scented teas may be brewed at 185 degrees for 3 minutes. Black scented teas may be brewed at 205 degrees for 3-5 minutes. We recommend to brew chai teas at 205 degrees for 5-7 minutes to yield a strong cup that will hold nicely with honey and milk.
What is Scented Tea?
Blended or scented tea, as opposed to herbal tea, is based upon the leaf of the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Other ingredients such as flowers, dried fruits, and essential oils are then added to achieve the desired flavor.
Health Benefits of Scented Tea
Congratulations, if you are drinking tea, you have already chosen an incredible, healthful beverage. Tea is considered in many cultures to have medicinal properties. All tea comes from the same plant family, camellia sinensis and therefore all types and styles contain the same components that contribute to significant health benefits. Influence of the varietal, growing conditions, production techniques and your own brewing practices play a role in the antioxidant and caffeine levels in your cup. Blended and scented teas are no exception. So enjoy a cup of tea, any tea, and know that you are drinking health.
