Painted Desert

Chocolate Chili Black Tea

Rated 4.7 out of 5
Based on 230 reviews

Tastes Like: dried pasilla chili, mexican cinnamon, cacao
Feels Like: a sedona sunset

Chai lovers and spice lovers will flip for this spicy black tea with New Mexican flavor. Tart tannins jump across the tongue in the first sip. Sweet cinnamon, smoky chili, and salty chocolate notes rise and fall with the steadiness of a piano scale. We recommend milk for a rich and spicy morning tea. If Mexican hot chocolate was a tea, this would be it.

Painted Desert

I love this tea, especially during the winter months. My family calls it Santa Fe Christmas tea because it reminds us of the super yummy spiced hot chocolate - and the love - we’ve experienced in Santa Fe over the holidays.

Black Tea masquerades as Mexican Hot Chocolate

Gah! One of my absolute favorites. This is one to convert a friend who "doesn't like tea." SO delicious.

Wow

I grabbed a sample size of this at the last minute before placing my order, and I’m so glad I did. This flavor is absolutely fantastic. It’s smooth, dreamy and just delicious. I honestly wasn’t expecting to like it, or just to be meh about it, but the description intrigued me and it was the only black tea from august uncommon that intrigued me that I hadn't tried. I’m normally into more fruity and floral green teas or herbal blends, so this one was a shock. It also wasn’t spicy, so if that scares you, I’d say go for it. I would recommend everyone to try it.

If you know you know!

Painted Desert is awesome. For anyone from New Mexico, Texas, California or anywhere else where a little spicy bite of chili pepper is appreciated, the mix of black tea, chocolate and chili is irresistible. You can drink Painted Dessert hot or in a nice, warming rum drink with local honey and cream. I’m sure it’s awesome cold as well, but I haven’t tried it yet. This is a tea to have on hand as here in California, all of my friends go wild for something like this.

Mexican hot chocolate in a cup of tea

To me, Painted Desert is like drinking a cup of Mexican hot chocolate, with all that spicy, cinnamony deliciousness that warms you from the inside out. It's rich & delicious!
