drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
111 tasting notes

So um, apparently I’m the first to try this. This wasn’t even in Steepster’s database until I added it myself. I’m special? :D

Received this as a bonus sample on my most recent Butiki order. :) I got a bit of a chuckle at the sight of it, because I don’t like peppermint teas, and I also don’t like chocolate teas. But it’s not like I’m gonna complain about a freebie! :)

Anyway, I’m actually really pleasantly surprised. The peppermint is a bit too overpowering for me while it’s piping hot — again, I don’t like peppermint tea, I’m sure this is perfectly balanced for the peppermint lover — but I’m amazed at how good the chocolate actually tastes. I decided that I don’t like tea that tries to be chocolate on purpose. It always come out tasting like dirt and really nasty, every single one that I’ve tried. (which is actually quite a lot)

But this is actually quite good. I even had a mint chocolate tea combo earlier (Read My Lips) that I had to pour down the drain after literally two sips, but here I am, sipping away. As the description says, each time I sip, I taste the chocolate a little bit longer, and it’s totally not a bad thing. :) In fact, I’ve decided that I’d like to try either Three Friends or Raspberry Truffle also from Butiki. Judging by this tisane, she can make it work!

Edit: I really am surprised about this one. As it cooled, the sweetness really came through, and it was almost difficult to believe that I didn’t add any sugar. I’m seriously considering purchasing this, which is incredible considering my hatred of nearly everything peppermint. If you like mint-chocolate such as After Eights or something, get this! It’s really quite good!

Ooh yay! :) Hope you enjoy it! The marshmallow flavor doesn’t come out at first, but after it’s had time to cool a bit, it’s very present and really yummy :)

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
