drank Chocolate Mint by Octavia Tea
145 tasting notes

I wasn’t expecting to like this one because I thought the dry leaves smelled weird and kind of alcohol-y. But it was actually amazing! The only chocolate teas I had tried before this one were from David’s, with the little tiny dark chocolate chips. This one had chunks of a lighter, milky chocolate and it made a huge difference in the taste. At first I thought the creaminess was caused by the vanilla, but I even tried a chocolate chip from a David’s tea and then a piece of chocolate from this tea to compare and it’s definitely the chocolate itself. I really like the milk chocolate, it makes it seem like more of a wintery tea. I didn’t taste the mint that much, I think I got it more in the feel than the taste. The second ingredient after rooibos is apple pieces! What?? I tried to taste the apple in this and didn’t get it at all. I wonder what they’re doing there? Despite the apple pieces and the melty nature of chocolate, this was good for a second steep too!

The Chocolate Mint Rooibos from Fusion Tea Room has apple pieces as well, which always throws me for a loop – I find they add a bit of sweetness, but also a bit of tartness. It’s an interesting element though I only appreciate it sometimes.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
