Gentle tea, well-rounded flavors. The mint is refreshing without being strong. This is perfect for folks who would enjoy a soft mint tea. The chocolate flavor is faint but does a nice job of adding an interesting depth. Thanks to KiTT for blending and sharing this. Really quite delightful, would be great iced, as well.

YAY! Glad you enjoyed! :)

And I’m not even a mint fan. It’s refreshing and soothing at the same time. Brewed stronger, this would make a great base for a cocktail, maybe a mohito?

Bio

Open at all hours for a good deep puerh, a fresh green tie guan yin, or an ethereal silver needle. Strong preference for exploring teas au naturel, and unflavored (except for unprocessed ingredients, e.g., cocoa shells/nibs, vanilla beans, flowers, fruits…).

I am always up for swaps.

Beyond the experience of tea, I’m interested in exploring its medicinal aspects. Other interests … yoga, creative veggie cooking, environmental issues, animal welfare, music/guitar, lefty politics, preventive health/nutrition, biking, swimming, foosball, photography.

Here’s how I rate ’em:

< 30: tidy stream into the spit bucket
31-44: just barely drinkable
45-64: something redeeming about it, but not much
65-74: I’ll drink it, but without enthusiasm
75-80: good, solid stuff
81-84: definitely enjoyable
85-90: delicious
91-94: extraordinary, exhilarating
95+: euphoria-inducing, le petite mort
