A quick web search will show you there are plenty of chocolates that use Earl Grey. A sample of links: http://www.goodsearch.com/Search.aspx?K ... +chocolate

Sorry, I meant an earl grey chocolate tea, although earl grey flavored chocolate sounds good too. Is there such thing as the tea version?

I've had a tea from Bentley that was mint chocolate flavored! Also, I think Celestial Seasonings has a dessert tea called Chocolate Caramel Enchantment! Yep -- http://www.celestialseasonings.com/products/chai-teas/chocolate-caramel-enchantment.html :)

That Chocolate Caramel Enchantment is AWFUL. It has been the only tea I've ever tried that I couldn't even swallow. It is neither chocolate, nor caramel, nor chai. It is pure, distilled evil.

I'll have a review of it on my site in the coming month...it sets my standard for "Goat Vomit." :)

I have to agree about that Chocolate Caramel stuff. Generally, I think Celestial Seasonings is pretty good, although that tends to be the herbals.

When I saw this one come out, I figured I'd give it a try, since I like both chocolate and caramel. Not sure just what the flavor is, but it certainly wasn't anything I was interested in trying again. I think from now on I'll stick to things like True Blueberry and Peppermint for when I'm on the go.

If you want a chocolate tea, i suggest steeping cacao nibs.

LOL! :)

I thought the CCE was only okay. I received a box as a gift. :) But then, I seem to not mind a lot of foods that others hate! :D

Buccaneer, a blend made by Serendipitea, is a good cocoa-based tea. Along with that, I think it has coconut, rooibos, black tea, and some other stuff. Not my cup of tea, but my fiancee thinks its divine.

I've also tried Upton's rooibos mint chocolate. Not bad. But again, I shy away from rooty-tooty fruity teas.
