I’ve got the tree up and the lights on it! The house is still a disaster, but there’s always tomorrow, right?
I saw the tasting notes on this, and it sounded so good that I had to order a sampler of it. For those who don’t know, Octavia has changed the name of this to “Chocolate Mint”.
After a mild tea spill (still had the vacuum out, so clean-up was very quick), I had a pot of this. It’s very nice: the rooibos is more of a background flavor, the peppermint is nice and strong, and the chocolate and vanilla round out the cup and make you feel like this really is an actual dessert. The taste is very similar to a York peppermint patty, or even a Thin Mint. Very, very good! I only purchased a sample, but I would definitely invest in a full tin!
