drank Cacao Mint Black by Teavana
46 tasting notes

Raiding another friend’s tea stash is the greatest. Courtesy of my close friend Maria, I’ve been going through quite a few Teavana teas. My stomach was giving me some issues, so I’ve been sticking to simple teas with mint and ginger in – no sugar or milk.

I love the smell of this tea. It’s a nice, cool rich scent. Brews to a fairly neutral brown. The peppermint does its thing and rises up with the steam while it’s steeping.

I don’t get a ton of chocolate notes in the taste, although it still smells chocolate/minty in the cup. Still a great tea. I could easily work this into my rotation.
