drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Many thanks to ashmanra for this tea!

We had our office painted over the weekend, and oooh I’m woozy with fumes! After a nice steep of Gong Fu Black, I thought I’d throw in some of Harney’s Chocolate Mint, hoping that the mint would clear my head a bit (a coworker also opened a window). I’m really enjoying this. The chocolate flavoring complimented the chocolately, roasty notes in the Gong Fu Black, and the mint helped in making me feel a little more together. Really good sans additions.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
