Chocolate tea, which is the best?

Brought home a box of Numi organic pu-erh - and I have fallen in love.

It is simply heavenly, unlike any tea I've ever had before.

Of course, I haven't actually tried any other brand of chocolate tea.

It was established here that several brands are supervised.

Anyone have a chocolate tea they like as much or more as Numi?

  1. I misspoke. It's not heavenly, it's velvety:

    This velvety infusion combines black Pu∙erh tea and organic cocoa. Accented by whole vanilla beans and sweet orange peel, this decadent blend is rounded off with nutmeg and cinnamon for a spicy finish.

    Food labels are the most memorably purple prose of our times.

      Where did you buy it and who is the supervision?

        1. re: robocop

          Fairway at 73rd St. in Manhattan.

          It has multiple supervisions. Hallal. Only soy ink used in packaging.Certificate B for sustainability. A Climate fun certification guaranteeing the use of renewable energy. Biodegradable packaging. Post-consumer recycled paper box. It is certified vegan, gluten-free and organic.

          It contains organic black pu*erh tea, organic cocoa powder, organic vanilla beans, organic rooibos, organic cinnamon, organic orange peel, organic nutmeg.

          And, oh yes,

            I've been attending Rabbi Organic's Shul for years--he's reliable! :-)

              Thank you. Not that I doubted it.

              The packaging, however, is so over-the-top that it's a pretty funny parody of obsessed, self-absorbed, up-scale, foodie culture.

              Really, worth buying just to read the conceits and have a good laugh at ourselves.

              Does anyone know the name of the Rav behind this Apple-K? My Rav knows nothing of it, and there is nothing on the link on the webpage. Seems odd that their own site wouldn't mention who is in charge of the hechsher, or even give a contact name.

                  Oh, OK. I finally found it, but not where it should have been, i.e., on the page called "kosher." It is on the "About Us" page. To make it easier for anyone else looking for it, here's the info:

                  Rabbi Flamer is a trained organic inspector, ordained at Tomchei Tmimim Lubavitch 770, and a graduate of Ohr Elchanan Yeshiva LA, Chabad Yeshiva in Seattle, and Morristown Rabbinical College in New Jersey.

        2. I bought Harney and sons. Both their chocolate and Soho blend ( chocolate and coconut).I love both, then again, I am a huge fan of many of their teas. The supervision is widely accepted and their teas are AMAZING.

          1. Love the Harney & Son's. Was just introduced to it. Definitely a winner.
