drank Rooibos Cocomint by Adagio Teas
44 tasting notes

I bought this tea initially because I love the combination of chocolate and mint, but I wasn’t sure how it would work in a tea- especially rooibos.

I’m pleasantly surprised with the mixture. The smell definitely makes me salivate- the sweet mint and chocolate remind me of mint chocolate chip ice cream or candy. The two flavors do not overpower the tea; however, at first sip the earthy rooibos definitely stands out. The mint and chocolate flavors are more of an aftertaste. I have difficulty recognizing the mint, but the chocolate’s sweetness at the end is definitely palatable.

I’m finishing off my 3 oz. (only really brewed probably four cups so far). So far, I’m not sure if I would buy this tea again, but it’s a possible contender because I’m enjoying the tea the more I have it. I just wish the mint flavor was more dominate (I’m a mint addict!).

Yay for mint addicts! If you have some plain mint (most mint nuts do!) I suggest tossing some extra in there. I do it far too often : )

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea- I always have some peppermint around! I, too, do it far too often, which causes my herbal blends to be lopsided!

Bio

I’m currently attending college. I’m just about done with my undergraduate study in art history. In my free time I love playing piano (Chopin!) and composing music. I also enjoy writing poetry. Really, I just love the Romantic period in art (with the exception of the visual arts- go figure) and continually draw my inspiration from that era.

I’m very interested in nutrition and using herbs to heal. Herbs also taste great, so that’s just another bonus! Before I got into tea, I got into herbs first. I think I’m pretty weird in this regard. I can’t imagine many people would find drinking a decoction made from tree bark to be very tasty… and yet I do. Purely for taste, I love peppermint and ginger more than any other herb. I could, and do, drink those almost daily. I also love rooibos and honeybush.

I have a penchant for Indian & Chinese black teas and Japanese greens, but I’ll try anything once. I’m trying to get into other types of tea as well. I prefer to drink my teas plain, but I’ll very seldom add honey to some herbs (ginger).
