Mighty Leaf's Mayan Chocolate Truffle Tea - Review

Herbal Infused Dessert Tea

Mighty Leaf's Mayan Chocolate Truffle Tea

As delicious and subtly variable as tea is, sometimes it seems like the adventurous drinker’s options are rather limited. What a sweet surprise it is, then, to discover Mighty Leaf’s Mayan Chocolate Truffle, part of the company’s Chocolate Truffle Tea Collection. An infusion of chocolate, chili and red pepper, with a toothsome touch of apple and strawberry, this rich, spicy beverage tastes like cocoa minus the cream, and with an added kick. Besides being a less fatty substitute for when you’re craving chocolate, the tea is caffeine-free, making it perfect to drink with — or as — dessert. We liked the smoky-sweet flavor especially when we let the tea steep a little longer than the company’s five minute advisory: call it an even Mightier Leaf. True chocolate champs can also check out the other Chocolate Truffle Flavors, including Chocolate Orange, Chocolate Mint and Pear Caramel. Several elegantly-packaged gift sets are also available, featuring a half dozen flavors — though even after tasting them all, we are still inclined to say, “Make mine Mayan.”

Price: $8 for 4 oz.

Rating: 14.5/20
