drank Chocolate Mint by Carytown Teas
17 tasting notes

Bought this on a lark when I was last at my local tea shop. Ahh, the dry leaves smell just like an Andes candy or a Peppermint pattie. So delicious, it makes me want to just try eating it though that would probably be a horrible idea. Let’s see… the liquor is a bit of a sickly brown, sort of like the way my lapsang souchong always looks. Oh, but it smells just like mint chocolate brownies!

So, let’s just take a sip and.. huh? Where’s the flavor? Ah, well… it’s in the aftertaste. Minty, just a little chocolate-y. The liquid itself doesn’t seem to have much going for it though. Sort of… woody tasting. It’s like drinking hot water and then chasing it with a mint chocolate candy. It smells so spectacular but the tea itself doesn’t live up the the expectations it causes by smelling so nice. I don’t think I’ll buy this again, but it was an interesting thing to try out at least.

Bio

I just got into loose leaf teas at the end of summer 2009. I’ve always loved tea, but I’d been wanting to try loose leaf for a while, having only been exposed to grocery store tea bags before. Finally, after some googling, Adagio became my gateway website, but I have been exploring some local brick and mortar tea shops as well. Hopefully my college-student budget can take the strain of my new addiction.
