Oh my god… this one is GOOD. Good good good. I haven’t been surprised by a cup of tea in a while, but I’m adoring this one. (Jim, if you read this we must bring a tin of this for your mother at Christmas. She feels as I do about peppermint-cocoa rooibos.)
Ahem.

There was a tea that I found in Chicago that came in a Cocomint flavor- I think the brand was Khalihari, or somesuch? Anyway, they only carried it in the Chicago South Loop Whole Foods, and I haven’t seen it since. This is a really good match for it, and might actually even be better. The mint and coco remind me of a less sweet mint-hot chocolate, and of course this lacks both the caffeine and the calories.

The girl at my Whole Foods counter insisted that I try this one on the house, and she was so right about me liking it. It really has all of the flavor of a cup of mint hot cocoa drink but just less sweet in a really good way- less overwhelmingly sweet that is.

Er, as I was typing this a UPS truck went flying down my street… backwards.

I think you have to elaborate on the UPS truck!

This sounds really yummy – must keep my eyes peeled at Wegman’s and Whole Foods!

You know, I thiiiiiink the UPS truck must have passed the place it needed to drop off a package and concluded the best thing to do would be to reverse the truck down the street at top speed…er… yeah.

My hubby does that, it freaks the neighbors out, but in his defense he backs tractor trailers for a living! Oh and I really need to try this tea! :)
