This tea has piqued my interest for awhile and I’m finally getting around to trying the sample that came in one of the sampler packs I bought from DT awhile ago.
Both cups were steeped for 4 minutes.
The first cup I tried with a little rock sugar. There’s definitely chocolate and mint in here with a touch of peppery spice at the end of the sip. It wasn’t overpowering like other teas have been, but I could probably do without the pepperiness so I tried it again as a latte.
The half and half I used to make the latte helped drown out the pepper, so that was a step in the right direction.
Quite honestly chocolate is not something I’m usually drawn to in general, but this had a nice balance of chocolate and mint. Probably not something I’ll end up buying 50 grams of, but if it came in another sampler pack, I’d be alright with it.
