I just got this in the mail today with three other 52 teas, and I couldn’t wait. Brewed it and sat down to drink and was a little ambivalent. It isn’t a bad tea. I liked it, but I didn’t get much in the way of a chocolate flavor.

In the bag, the smell was overwhelming. Very chocolating, very minty. My husband said it reminded him of mint ice cream.

But the chocolate flavor just didn’t stand up to the brewing. I’m not sure if I just didn’t get much of the chocolate goodness in that first teaspoon or if boiling water was inappropriate. Adding milk gave it a faintly coffee aftertaste. It wasn’t bitter, it just sort of tasted like mint coffee.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
