Good Earth®’s Cocoa Tango™ Tea is my new favorite tea flavor. Being a tea lover, I’ve bought or been given as gifts countless varities of tea for years. I’ve become a bit blasé about it, to be frank. It’s hard to impress me when it comes to this particular product. My favorite flavor of tea, ever, was a box of amaretto tea bags given to me by my mother-in-law quite a few years ago. However, I have never been able to find that product again, much to my chagrin. This Cocoa Tango tea is the closest thing I’ve found in terms of flavor, so it was definitely enough to impress me!
Cocoa Tango™ is a black and herbal tea that has hints of chocolate blended with the heat of chili peppers. The flavor of the cocoa and chili peppers is subtle, though very present in this truly unique beverage experience. Normally I add a bit of sugar to my tea as I prefer a bit of sweetness, but the cocoa flavor adds a natural sweetness that rendered additional sugar unnecessary.
Good Earth®’s philosophy is to create “Tea Untamed™.” As described by the company: “We’re Good Earth and we make tea. But we don’t just stick to the ordinary stuff. We seek out the exotic. The unexpected. The moments where you can really let loose. Because that’s what tea should do. And so that’s how we make it.”
I have to say, that is my kind of company. No holds barred, unapologetic, innovative — in a word… different. Another word, creative, comes to mind. I would have never thought of pairing chocolate and chili peppers together to flavor anything, much less a drink. But, now it seems totally appropriate. Tea has been around forever, I can’t believe no one ever thought of this before. Well, maybe someone has, but I’ve never heard of it.
Cocoa Tango™ comes in a brightly colored, beautifully artistic package which contains 18 tea bags. The package features a convenient perforated flap on the side for easy access without having to tear the adhesive of the box.
