Black tea flavour definitely present. Peppermint flavour throughout which is well balanced with the black tea. A little bit thin on the start but blooms on the finish into a very full sweet taste. The feel of this tea reminds me of drinking a cup of of thick hot chocolate. The flavour reminds me of chocolate mint. The slightest bitterness is present on the finish but not so much to make this drink an unpleasant experience.
