There really isn’t much oomph to either the chocolate or the mint here, and maybe that’s indicated by the “smooth” modifier. There’s nothing offensive about this one, no odd taste at any point, but it’s just not that interesting or exciting. I have a whole 8 ounces of it, though, and while I’ll certainly work my way through it quickly enough, I don’t think that I’ll be in a hurry to replace it.

For a chocolatey tea, I adore Teavana’s Haute Chocolate. No mint, but it’s got a little kick of pepper… if that kind of spicy is your thing (as it is mine), I’d check out that one.

Black or red pepper in the teavana tea?

it’s black pepper… and not so much that one should be scared off, I think it’s really well-balanced. A touch of rock sugar makes it perfect. :)

Bio

I’m a writer and a documentary filmmaker, and also a mama to one 13 month-old boy—with another baby on the way this spring! I’m pretty much caffeine-free these days, and learning to love the Rooibos. I grew up in Wisconsin and after 5 years in Chicago and 11 in NYC, I now live in a ghost town in the desert. And I love it.

the high desert hills of northern New Mexico
