According to the label on the tin, this tea contains: organic rooibos, cacao nibs, peppermint leaf, apple, orange peel and chocolate flavor.

I like the idea of a caffeine-free chocolate mint tea, so I decided to give it a try. Also, I discovered I like rooibos. Opening the tin, what is immediately perceptible is the mint, lots and lots of it! The peppermint unquestionably dominates the brewed tea, to the point that other flavors are difficult to detect. It is nice mint, pleasantly tingling the tongue, and the tea is organic, so I am willing to overlook the missing chocolate flavor, at least for now.

Bio

I grew up drinking herbal tea, in many cases tea that I picked myself: chamomile, linden flowers, lemon balm, thyme, and hibiscus teas were an important part of my childhood experience. I learned to appreciate their delicate flavors. I am not new to black or green teas, but somehow, I had found them boring. My introduction to flavored teas—oolong, black or green—was a few years ago, and I’ve been hooked since then. Today, I still enjoy herbal teas. I’ve always been very sensitive to smells, so to me, the balance between flavor and aroma is very important. Tea is one of those small luxuries in life that allows us to combine our olfactory senses with taste.

I tend to like: herbal teas, “dessert” teas with vanilla, chocolate, or other flavors, and floral teas.
