I originally tried this tea before joining Steepster. Since then, my mother has been the only one in possession of any and I forgot whether or not I liked it, so I ordered half an ounce for myself.
I brewed it up this afternoon and decided, on a whim, to check out Sherlock, sitting there in my recommended show list on Netflix. I have seriously no idea at all why I never thought to watch it before. I guess I had this idea that it was going to be a cheesy poor attempt at a Sherlock show (no offense UK, but you do have a penchant for some out-there shows and a strange form of humor. . .ok, so the same could really be said of the US if I think about what is all that is trending here and all that I pretend not to notice. lol).
I loved the Sherlock Holmes movies. Never read any books. I did love detective novels as a kid; the young-adult kind that focus more on the detective stuff and less on the gory creepiness rampant in many of the mature novels. If I didn’t have such an immense dislike for graphic images (even described in words), being a detective would be my dream job. I can’t boast anything near Sherlock-level impressiveness, but I am obnoxiously observant and would rather put it to use rather than annoying the crap out of my family (not in a good way usually; causes lots of stress and arguments.) I’ll just have to make do watching fictional characters live out my dream. sigh
Ok, back to the tea now:
It really is a good tea as far as chocolate blends go. The chocolate doesn’t take over and it doesn’t taste too flat or artificial. Also, it isn’t filmy as Sil mentioned in her own tasting note.
As far as mint blends go, the thin mint (no chocolate, despite the name) is my favorite so far. Even though I like this chocolate mint one fine, i’ll probably be more likely to keep the other in stock regularly.
