drank Rooibos Cocomint by Adagio Teas
318 tasting notes

This tea perplexes me. Each time I smell it, I get cool mint and then chocolate. It smells kind of like those Andes mints.

Drinking it, it’s a sort of chocolaty rooibos with mint. The mint really lingers, which is cool.

Added a splash of milk – it’s worth a shot, and I don’t feel like I’m losing anything if it doesn’t work.

It’s a little bit better that way, a little bit smoother this way. Hm. It’s more of a mint chocolate rooibos. I’ll finish the cup, it’s not bad enough just to throw out, but it’s not a tea I’m eager to drink again.

EDIT: I realized the reason I wasn’t tasting any coconut the first time around was because there literally wasn’t anyone: Cocomint refers to cocoa and mint, not coconut and mint! Cool, I’m glad my tastebuds weren’t broken.

I almost ordered some of this thinking it would be coconut & mint but luckily reexamined it on their website first! I’m not a huge fan of chocolatey teas, so I think I’d have been a little disappointed with this tea as you were
