This was the newest seasonal tea I was most excited about, and it is pretty tasty.

The main flavour is overwhelmingly mint, which is fine and dandy. There is a hint of spiciness, which I’m guessing is the peppercorns, and underlying the mint is a creaminess for the white chocolate. The chocolate taste doesn’t come through very strong, it more just contributes to the creaminess. There is definitely an inherent sweetness to this tea all on it’s own.

It’s refreshing with all the mint, and I can see why this is a winter/Christmas tea for sure.

The mint and creaminess came out even more as it cooled, and the resteep is still tasty! More mint than creaminess for the resteep but I’m enjoying it nonetheless.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
