And Central Market carries the tea "temples" in about six different flavors - I controlled myself and only bought two. And they were on sale $6.79 (regular price $7.99). I got the Mao Feng Green Tea (North American Tea Champion - First Place 2013 and Great Taste 2015 -- awards for green tea? So buying!) and how could I resist Chocolate Flake Tea?!
You get 15 tea temples per resealable (so keeping!) box inside a plastic wrap.
The Mao Feng (click on the link for a cute story) tasted good plain and hot -- sweet grassy...but even better when I added just a little bit of creamer, which really brought out the fruity peach/apricot flavor.
Chocolate Flake has to be hands down the best chocolate tea I've tried. No cloying, artificial flavor or a "let's mix tea and hot cocoa together!" (busted) -- just a hint of real chocolate. And it was successfully able to kill the afternoon carb crazy hour - whomp. And look, over 110 reviews on their site with 5 stars. I also saw they have a Chocolate Mint - may have to order that one online. (Seriously, who ever writes their advertising copy should also win an award.) This also tasted better to me with a little bit of half and half to let the chocolate out.
I will give both of these 5 stars and am running back to Central Market to get/try more. You should, too! Maybe then they will carry more flavors. That's how I think and drink.

|Chocolate Flake - oh yes, you can tell that's chocolate!|
