Our collection of global tea represents all the traditional tea producing nations with their signature varieties. Over the past 4000 years, the tea plant spread to each of these nations, where it took on a unique form and flavor due to the regional terroir, namely the local soil quality, humidity, altitude, and temperature. Each region also developed specialized methods of processing the tea leaf to obtain a particular taste and form. Shaped by the traditions of their culture, local tea masters are still developing and perfecting regional tea around the world. Explore our collection!
Caffeine naturally occurs in the tea plant, causing all traditional teas to have a naturally occurring amount level of caffeine. Chemical processes can be used to extract most of the caffeine from tea leaves, however we do not carry these processed decaf teas. We do, however, have a variety of herbal teas that are naturally 100% caffeine free. On the other hand, other traditional teas are naturally highly caffeinated. These create a sustained buzz that won't result in the familiar unwanted "crash" that often follows coffee.
Our newest signature tea is the closest thing you’ll find to heaven on earth. This certified organic full leaf tea indulges your senses with the purest of chocolate aromas on a delicious malty tea base, with hints of caramel and honey. Handpicked black leaves with golden tips, grown organically at high altitude, deliver a smooth, full and well-rounded flavor that brings on dreams of hot cocoa. The color of the infusion is a beautiful dark amber. We microblend this tea with a superb organic single estate Qu Hao black tea and chocolate essence. Experience the long smooth finish of Chocolate “O”.

Black Tea is known to banish fatigue, stimulate mental powers, and raise energy levels. It has been shown to reduce stress hormone levels and acts as a nerve sedative, frequently relieving headaches. Black tea contains a number of vitamins considered essential for maintaining health, including Carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, has antioxidant and protective properties, Vitamin B1 and Panothenic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.
Black Tea also contains antioxidants which may help to protect your body from the ravages of aging and environmental effects. Because they are allowed to ferment completely before drying, most black teas are especially rich in those polyphenols which have been shown to be effective against dementia in aging as well as AIDS related dementia. These compounds penetrate the blood brain barrier and have also been found to reduce blood cholesterol levels.
Black tea is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. It can be topically applied to cuts, bruises and burns, and is famous for its sunburn relief and has been shown to have a positive effect on preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

Author: Valerie B I had my doubts about this tea, but I have to say it is simply amazing! It tastes just like hot cocoa with none of the fat and guilt.
Author: Cay To me, this tea has a slight malty flavor and reminds me of Ovaltine (which I love). It is great sweetened and with milk or just plain. It is great hot or iced. I love it! I'll be buying mor of this tea.
Author: Amy This tea is good, but not as good as Boulder Breakfast. It is nice with a bit of milk and stevia. I have not yet tried it iced, but would imagine it would be a good afternoon pick me up.
Author: KAREN THAMES I am totally addicted to Chocolate "O'. Best tea I have ever tasted. Thanks for the Earth Day 25% off. Order 2 pounds!
Author: Adele M amazing iced!
Author: Debbie F This tea was good but as a chocolate lover I was expecting a sweeter more chocolate taste. Overall I was disappointed and glad I only ordered the sample size. For a sweet tea choice I'm going to stick with the creme caramel.
Author: Umbreona Chocolate is the word that really best describes this tea. It has a rich chocolate flavor with a touch of malt. With just a bit of sweetener it easily eclipses hot chocolate. I would much rather brew up a cup of this any day.
Of all the Chocolate teas offered by the Spot right now I prefer Cherry Bomb but this is a delicious Chocolate tea for the purists. It is absolutely wonderful to brew a fresh cup of this before going out in the cold or to warm up from being IN the cold.
