drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons
1856 tasting notes

I was hot from working in the yard, pruning the 50 year old azaleas that manage to leap up at least an extra four feet every year! I thought Chocolate Mint would be a good way to cool off, even if I was drinking it hot! The mint flavor really lingers and is so refreshing, but if you don’t like chocolate and mint together, or you are not a fan of peppermint, you probably won’t like this one. My guest wasn’t too thrilled with it. She said it was interesting, but not a favorite. I took mine plain. My guest usually adds milk and sugar but didn’t with this one, I think. She would have liked it more that way since that is how she usually takes her tea, and when you add milk and sugar to this one, it is almost like drinking a melted Thin Mint or Grasshopper cookie! The milk brings the chocolate out a little more, and the tea base is not very noticeable in this to me.

I just received this in my order from H&S and I hope it’s good. I’ve had a run of really cruddy “chocolate” flavored teas.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
