It’s hard to be anything but ambivalent about this tea. I had the highest of hopes—albeit slightly misguided, since I didn’t bother reading other reviews and thought that the ‘coco’ in ‘cocomint’ stood for ‘coconut.’ The smell in the bag would lead one to believe that it’s got a wealth of chocolatey-minty goodness just waiting to be tasted, but…

Once in the mug, sweet lovers will be disappointed. The cocoa is left far, far behind in the greenyness, which itself is subtle at best. Just a touch of mint in there with it. If you prefer the natural flavor of green tea over added sweetening flavors, then this one may suit you. (Yep, a flavored tea for those who dislike flavored teas. Such a thing exists.) It’s kind of refreshing, actually.

Don’t add milk, but if you’re sore about the lack of cocoa-mintyness, then sugar it up and be content with that. This is a great spring tea otherwise, probably tastes super iced.

At the moment, I don’t have enough time to keep Steepster cup-dated with reviews, so if you’re looking for the latest leaves in my Snooty cup, hit up snooteablog.com. Most of the teas I review end up on there.

Some people drink tea because they think it has nine thousand-plus health benefits and saves the rainforest while eliminating world hunger and solving the energy crisis.

I just drink it because it’s good.
