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!
