I really like when you can easily identify all the ingredients in a tea – so obviously, this tea is perfect in that respect. This is another tea courtesy of the quiet life!
When I first started to drink tea regularly, I came across a box of chocolate mint oolong (oolong in a bag…hmm…) which I really loved because it reminded me of Thin Mint cookies. I had no desire to purchase another overly price box (from a specialty kitchen store) but I have missed that tea because it was just really good.
Well, thanks to the quiet life I know have the loose leaf version of that bagged tea. This tea is a little heavier on the mint than I would like, but the chocolate is still noticeable. I really appreciate that you can still identify the black tea taste through all the flavors. In fact, this may be one of the most balanced teas I’ve had from Teavana. It is great for dessert, but I’m thinking a little chocolate syrup would really do wonders for this tea.
