When I brewed this as the kids went off to school, it smelled delicious. I however still needed to sleep, so I had a sip and then put it on the counter. The brief sip I had was nice, surprising. I could definitely get the mint and the chocolate, although it was just too hot to enjoy.

Now, it’s cold. Very, very cold. I’m cool with that, because it’s like a syrupy sweet chocolate mint thin. It’s still a bit thin, and I think I should overleaf it in the future, as well as continue steeping it at a lower temperature. This is good… I just need to find the sweet spot to make it amazing.

I was very tempted to buy this one when I saw it but honestly I think I typically like the idea of chocolate mint more than the taste. I am glad you are enjoying it though. Plus it is always nice when a tea is still good, or better, after it cooled.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
