Amazingly enough, this is the first Teavana blend I’ve tried! I think I have a few other samples floating around, but I got this in my envelop from Amanada which was just packed with goodies. I think my expectations were too high for this tea, since it fell… well, really flat.
Sure, there’s a little mint and a little chocolate. It reminds me a LOT of English Tea Store’s chocolate mint… I honestly don’t know if I could tell the difference between them, except the ETS one is more chocolatey for sure. Considering that you can get 4 ounces of that for the price of one ounce… yeah, I get why Teavana is overpriced.
This probably has sounded really negative, but I did enjoy this tea! It just needs a little oomph, like where is the hazelnut? I was really looking for it. I think a well-done hazelnut/chocolate/mint tea would be beyond amazing, sadly this is not it.
