I hope this tea is not a recipe for heartburn but I really wanted to try it!

My one complaint is that it smells kind of medicinal, both in the bag and in the cup. I think perhaps that’s the honeybush talking? Or the honeybush mixed with mint, it is a bit odd.

I steeped this up for my afternoon dessert drink. I’m getting a lot of mint in this cup and a bit of chocolate. The honeybush lends a nice sweetness to this blend. I’m not reminded as much of ice cream as I am of… graham crackers, I think. I did end up adding soymilk to mine to sort of “pump up” the creaminess factor.

As a dessert tea I liked this pretty well, though not quite as well as the cinnamon roll honeybush. I wish for a bit less peppermint here but it may be perfect for others. It does somehow seem much more decadent than it really is… Another nice blend from 52 Teas!

Does the chocolate give you the heartburn? It does to me sometimes. ://

Chocolate does, and so does peppermint!
