Sitting in the library analyzing a Swedish textbook, which I used many moons ago, for a paper. Simultaneously brings back memories and makes me feel old. On that note, the name of this tea makes me wish I were in Zürich again. Sigh.

As for this tea, peeps are right. This smells like After Eight. Compared to DT’s Read My Lips, the peppermint has more POW. It’s cooler and evokes images of After Eight’s luscious, creamy centre.

Steeped, it smells almost the same, but as for the taste, this is definitely more pepperminty. Also less sugary, probably because the mint brittle in this isn’t just plain sugar like the candy lips you get in Read My Lips. The chocolate is a little darker too.

I should really stop comparing things. But that’s how my world works, yo.

Meh. Comparisons are useful! Especially for tgose who’ve had more of DavidsTea than Della Terra, For me, this just reaffirms that I should get more of this instead of ordering Read My Lips.

Ah, too bad you don’t have a store nearby, because then you could just order it to go or get 10g. Maybe you’ll luck out and get a sample of it in one of your orders! Because you never know, you may end up liking RML more? It depends on what you like.

I figured out the major difference, it’s the peppercorns in RML! I have to taste test again but I much prefer the Shamrocks and Shenanigans so far. And I might prefer this one to RML too if I give it a fair (unbiased) chance

whatshesaid

(I can see how that may have been obvious to others but it’s been awhile since I drank RML and when rereading the label I was like “OH, that’s why it smells so spicy compared to the other two!”)

Hmmm… IDK about the peppercorns. I guess I could get it as a go-cup someday, but I seem to like DTT’s chocolate teas more than Davids so I should just make a DTT order. :P

whatshesaid

I think the peppercorns are what bumps RML to the bottom of the 3 for me, now that I’ve had the chance to taste 2 similar ones. Poor RML, we used to be so close.

The odd part is for me, the peppercorns don’t seem to make a difference. They’ve been really sparse in both bags I bought in the past, so the one or two that end up in my pot (I usually brew two cups) don’t do anything anyway.

I still need to try the Shamrocks and Shenanigans. I hope the little shamrock candies won’t make it too sweet.

But I agree, so far, I prefer DTT’s chocolate.

Ahaha, couldn’t figure out in my emails what on earth RML stood for :P Had to actually navigate here to check.
