About our Assam Chocolate Spice tea


Who doesn't love chocolate and a cup of tea? With this indulgent, malty loose leaf tea from the powerhouse Indian tea-producing region of Assam, you can have both in one cup! Made with 20% cocoa nibs, barley malt and ginger pieces, this chocolate-rich tea has all the deep flavour complexity and comforting character that make for the perfect winter tea for tea lovers. And thanks to the bright spices scattered throughout its deep black leaves, it's a feast for the eyes as well as your palate.

Assam is famous for its outstanding black teas and is one of only two places in the world with its own native tea plant, assamica – a robust, large-leaved variety of the parent tea bush, Camellia sinensis. Bold and brisk, Assam teas make wonderful carriers for strong spices, dried fruit and milk, so they are widely used in breakfast blends and chai.

In our Assam Chocolate Spice tea, assamica tea leaves are skillfully blended with premium cocoa pieces and Indian spices for a bright amber-coloured brew with a distinctive note of dark chocolate. The roasted chicory root adds a toasty back note, and the addition of warming ginger, cardamom and black pepper gives a distinctive wintry flavour and beautiful seasonal aroma. Enjoy it as is for a vegan tea or with a splash of the white stuff to invoke chocolate milk – either way, it will feel like a treat for afternoon tea.
