drank Cacao Mint Black by Teavana
79 tasting notes

I ordered 2 ounces of this blend the other day (after drinking some at my boyfriend’s house.) I then drank those two ounces within a week. Cacao Mint became my breakfast, afternoon, and after-dinner tea. I normally hate tea with any sort of strong chocolate note. I’ve already ordered a bit more!

The mint is delightfully cool & refreshing. The chocolate is smooth and delicate. Unfortunately, the tea base itself is weak. I could never steep this a second time without it being completely watery and weak. I tried and the color was just off, and it tasted like hot water with a little bit of mint and no cocoa. I was rather disappointed by that, but would just add fresh tea and drink some more. That’s PROBABLY why I went through 2 ounces so quickly.

I’m sensitive to wheat/gluten, and this tea gives me my chocolate-mint fix … seeing as I’ve been so deprived of my favorite Thin Mint cookies these past few years! :D
