As its name suggests, this tea is chocolatey and minty. It smells and tastes like After Eight Thin Mints, which is great because I am a chocoholic (and I like mint chocolates too). It’s certainly a good dessert tea that rounds off a meal nicely. On the other hand, as a mint tea lover, I am disappointed because the mint flavour seems to come from flavouring and tastes completely artificial. The dry leaves do contain mint leaves but they are tasteless. But if you know what to expect (now you do!), you will probably enjoy this tea :)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec
Winter Salo

Pity about the mint tasting artificial – I LOVE a good mint taste I think it can really make or break a tea and I do like the idea of a tea version of after dinner mints, they’re so yummy – then again how bad can you feel about having one they are so thin? ;)

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)
