I got the chocolate lovers sampler from ETS today, a little annoyed that they decided to substitute Night of the Iguana with an extra pouch of Chocolate Mint… But onto this tea’s tasting notes.

When I opened the pouch I was greeted by a noseful of mint and slight hint of chocolate. When I smelled all that mint I was worried that it would wind up being like the Chocolate Cream mint overpowering disappointment from TeaSource. I first tried brewing for 2 minutes, thought it too weak and steeped for another 3 minutes. Added about a teaspoon of sugar, no milk or cream.

It’s not cocoa but so far it has been the best chocolate tea I have tried yet. The mint is there but is not overpowering, it is a good compliment to the chocolate I can taste on the sides of my tongue. The tea seems to grow sweeter and more delicately chocolate as it cools. I can barely taste the black tea.

Next time I make this I think I’ll try adding a little milk.

It really irks me when a company decides to substitute a product without consulting with the customer. I think that if they do not have one of the products in the set, then they should give the customer the option of choosing the substitution (within reason, of course), rather than just assuming that the substitution will be fine.

I also ordered the Earl Grey sampler and they substituted Scottish Breakfast for Dorian Grey >:( It would be nice to get a word in on substitutions.
