Making this tea is half the fun – bright red candy lips & little chocolate chips are just so cute to scoop along with tea leaves. The sweet aroma of this tea filled my kitchen while it was steeping, which was lovely, as I waited 10 minutes. I like my teas strong & this tea (perhaps because it is loose?) doesn’t seem to live up to that. It seems the 10+ minutes of steeping worked this time, as the tea was as wonderful as the day I bought it. Peppermint overlays vanilla & a hint of chocolate makes it heavenly.
