Captain Mal

Hopeful, a point of interest, and just a bit bloody. Smooth chocolate and blood orange with a touch of almond oolong, Captain Mal is a zesty and sanguine blend that aims to misbehave. Make sure the tea leaves are properly mixed on this one, the blood orange bits tend rise to the top of the bag/tin.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 3 minutes.

This tea is so delicious! It reminds me of a chocolate orange, as another reviewer said. It's has a lovely, warm chocolatey taste, with an aromatic orange finish.
A friend bought me a sample tin of this for my birthday, and I'm hooked. It's so freaking delicious. Curse her super power of choosing amazing teas based solely on labels!

This is by far the best of the 18 fan flavors I bought. It was AMAZING and unlike any tea I have ever had, it's SOOOO damn good, it makes me wanna be a big damn hero.

I found this tea enjoyable but it wasn’t a standout for me. I was hoping for a little more orange and chocolate, maybe. Would gladly take it over nearly anything available in the grocery store, but not quite as amazing as some of the other samples on my order.

It's like eating a bitter orange and almond cookie dipped in tea with a bit of chocolate. I tried several cups made in a ceramic teapot, at varying times and temperatures, and the astringentness of the orange and sweetness of the almond overwhelms the oolong. The chocolate ends up lost in the strong flavours until the last sip at the bottom. I made sure the orange was distributed evenly, and it was still overwhelming. A bit less almond and orange, and it would be lovely. All in all, decent for an occasional cuppa with biccies.
