My first time brewing this, and wow, not sure what to think. I thought this was a chocolate tea, but it is peppermint, a lot of pepppermint with some chocolate underneath. Irresistibly reminding me of After Eights – I know just which of my friends is more likely to loooooove this. But After Eights are not a particular favorite of mine. I am still pretty surprised by its taste.
About the tea itself, the base is very smooth. Pink peppercorns are included and are highly visible in the dry tea (which is oh so so pretty) and I think it adds a resonance to the tea of subtle heat. People sensitive to pepper, chillis or ginger might not like it as much as I do, but as I said, it´s subtle. The red “lips” seem to melt and add texture and sweetness to the tea.
