Did you know about chocolate tea?
I didn’t. And I wish I had known. Instead of consuming a 750+ calorie slice of chocolate lava cake during my Christmas shopping marathon at the mall last week, I could have gotten my chocolate fix with a cup of chocolate-flavored tea, which has zero calories, instead. Oops. Well, the New Year is upon us, and it’s a time for new beginnings for me. I’m glad my favorite TV doc was discussing chocolate tea as a metabolism booster, because that’s indeed what I need to get lean and mean in “˜14!
We just happened to have a few varieties of chocolate tea right here on the premises at Vitacost.com (talk about job perks!) so I was able to sample the different options. My favorite by far was Numi Chocolate Puerh Black Tea. It’s got a velvety flavor and aroma with a hint of orange peel. We also have a few weight loss support blends that are chocolate-infused, like Skinny Choco Latte Chocolate Dream by Wu-Yi. With green tea extract, garcinia cambogia and yerba mate, I figure it’s the antidote to mall chocolate lava cake!
Not really on a diet but love the idea of chocolate tea? Zhena’s Gypsy Tea makes a delectable Chocolate Chai red tea. And it’s USDA-certified organic.
