I did not expect to like this tea when it came in the DavidsTea Chocolate Box. I wanted chocolate, gosh darn it, not peppermint! The Red Velvet Cake had all the red pieces I wanted; what was this one about?

But I was wrong. It was love at first smell. I expected to overwhelmed by peppermint. But I wasn’t. There was an awesome balance of chocolate, mint, and some abstract “spice” scent I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I had to try it.

Let me tell you, the taste is even better than the smell. Again, everything was so well-balanced that the mint, while certainly present, did not overpower everything else, like I find it does with most other peppermint flavored teas. It’s sweet, minty, chocolatey, vanilla-y TEA. And you can taste every element of it. One of my new favorite teas.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
