Tea Forté Coconut Chocolate Truffle organic chocolate tea, is a unique cup for a healthier life. Try this tea with a bit of milk for a rich chocolate flavor. At the heart of this sumptuously satisfying blend, Organic Cacao nibs (pronounced cuh-COW) stands, which are pure raw chocolate. Known as the soul of chocolate, they are the edible part of the cocoa bean after it’s been harvested, dried, fermented, roasted and hulled. For thousands of years, the cacao tree has grown naturally in the Amazon basin. Cacao beans were so prized by ancient cultures that as far back as 1000 BC it was utilized for its medicinal qualities.
New scientific studies have discovered that dark chocolate and tea contain an abundance of healthy flavonoids called catechins, which is what you get with our chocolate tea. Catechins are naturally occurring polyphenol antioxidants known for their protective effects against destructive molecules called free radicals, which can cause premature aging, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and degenerative illnesses. We’ve combined the rich in cell-protecting antioxidants of tea and chocolate to provide this innovative double dose of health enhancing wellness, crafted from hand harvested teas, herbs, spices and rich dark cocoa nibs for a remarkably exquisite tea experience.

This one has a strong rum taste and smell. I wouldn't want to drink it at work because I would be afraid someone would think I am drinking alcohol. Very tasty and woke me up!
I have tried lots of the different flavored teas from here and this one is my favorite. I always come back to it. I drink my tea black and the chocolate and coconut blend together perfectly. The smell is fantastic, too.
I've tried a few teas that claim to be chocolate but this one coupled with the coconut is the only one true to its name. There's a strong hint of chocolate and coconut balanced to make it delicious. The smell is also inspired by chocolate.
I am a coconut fan so when I saw the tea in the market I thought I would try it. Stunningly good -very fragrant coconut aroma. Have given this as a gift with the tea set to others who are also coconut fans and everyone has only good things to say. Amazing tea.
I am a green tea drinker but decided to try this one and I love it. I love the smell and it is so smooth. You can taste the chocolate and coconut and it's not bitter. Going to buy a larger container to go with all my green tea. I really like drinking this at night. I am so glad I tried it.
This tea actually makes me nauseous, which I have never experienced before...EVER. I am an avid tea drinker and usually love all kinds tea, but not this one. My husband asked if I had been drinking rum because the smell was so strong. I love coconut and chocolate, but this tasted like an island misshap, kind of Cancun during sping break.
I love this tea! It is by far my favorite tea from Tea Forte! I tried the coconut sampler and this tea was my favorite. It was so good I bought an entire canister. The flavors are wonderful together and with each sip you get a taste of the coconut, hazelnut, and chocolate. I love drinking this tea when I am craving chocolate, it helps satisify my craving! This is a wonderful tea!
I just wanted to update my review of this tea. I still enjoy 2 or 3 cups of this each day, always with a dash of coconut milk added. My supply was running low so I ordered more, but still managed to run out. It was a tough couple of days! As soon as I saw my order on the doorstep, I ran out and opened the box, and immediately made a cup. Ahhhh! Heaven. There are chunks of chocolate in the tea and it is worth using a spoon to stir the tea leaves from the bottom every time I use it. Otherwise, those chunks float to the top and the last few cups of tea aren't as flavorful. I usually steep my flavored teas for about 2 minutes so that the delicate flavorings don't disappear behind the tea flavor. This tea is very robust and it benefits from a much longer steeping.
This tea in it's loose format is one of the best chocolate teas ever. Looks like I won't be quitting chocolate while this tea is around:)
I LOVE this tea! Usually I drink my tea black, with no added cream or sugar. I tried that with this tea and it was OK but didn't thrill me. I had some unsweetened coconut milk in the refrigerator and added a dash to the tea. Incredible! The coconut milk added the the right touch of sweetness and creaminess, and accented the other flavors in the tea. This is my new favorite tea and I really look forward to my first cup each day.
One of my favorites, very smooth and like a desert, a taste of chocolate, coconut, truffle, and enticing aroma. My request, I hope ...TEA FORTE will have it in a fun Event Box packaging also.
This is an amazing dessert tea! The flavors complement each other perfectly. I also would love to be able to purchase it separately.
Just tried the new coconut tea sampler. This one is outstanding. How about offering a package that contains JUST the coconut chocolate truffle?
