I’m actually nearly through my sample of this, and I haven’t yet managed to log it! Dry, it smells almost exactly like a box of After Eights just after opening; dark chocolate and mint in equal measure. It’s rich and ever so slightly bittersweet. I can see chopped mint leaves and chocolate chips among the black tea base, so it’s the real deal as far as flavouring goes.
To taste, this really lives up to its scent. The chocolate comes through first , darkly bittersweet and slightly creamy, swiftly followed by the cool sweetness of the mint. They combine beautifully in the aftertaste, to perfect effect. This is the kind of tea I could happily drink all day. The black base is unobtrusive, but it adds a slightly malty depth and helps the flavours to really shine. This is one I’ll definitely consider repurchasing in the future. As chocolate mint black teas go, it’s among the best I’ve tried so far. Tasty, refreshing, and moreish; in this heat, there isn’t much more I could want in a tea!
