drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons

Thank you ashmanra for this tea!!!

We had this as a dessert tea with milk and sugar. I liked it quite well – it was sweet and naturally minty – herbaceous, not mint oil. The chocolate was more a depth than an oooooh chocolate type taste.

Now that I know that it has a Chinese tea base, I’m going to try it next without milk – maybe a little sugar. I bet it will be even better this way. More refreshing and a stronger tea presence. Will report back!

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
