Enjoyable tea. I was surprised by the name between ordering and receiving; I had forgotten that it was chocolate not coconut (an odd combination I agree, but I would have tried it once).
The leaves were pressed paper flat and a beautiful dark green. The first smell of the leaves was very strong, very minty, with only a whiff of very fake chocolate scent. While steeping the wet leaves smelled clearly of mint and chocolate and pleasantly “Junior Mint movie time.” Through to the dregs, the taste was steady for me; I used two teaspoons (not measuring spoons, the kind you use on the table). I think it would be great over ice this summer.

Preparation

It definitely was an enjoyable tea, just the naming seemed to throw everyone off. The iced version is good, I should get around to writing another review on this one…Oh well, glad you liked it!

I agree that that name makes me think “coconut”. They should rename it choco nut!

I’ve mentioned to them that it should be chocomint or cocoamint, but they said no.

Bio

I’m 57, used to be I/T project & program manager and live with a pug (Rhumba). I drink white- and green teas almost exclusively to cut down on caffeine.

I enjoyed black tea in college when I drank gallons all day long. Unfortunately the only tea available then was Lipton & Nestea. sigh What a difference now, in the stores and with the Internet.

I’ve been inspired by all of your taste notes to try different manufacturers, URLs, and flavors, so thank you Steepers.
