Mint and Chocolate are two of my favorite ingredients for a tea, as anyone can tell from looking at my Read My Lips tin, it is almost always empty its a very vicious cycle of purchasing it and consuming it…Enter Mint Chocolate Rooibos!

My sister loves this tea, funny she tried it after I introduced her to Read My Lips. I was complaining that I didn’t have any (read my lips) so immediately she said I had to try this tea, as I was heading out of her house she handed me a DT sample pack that had come with one of her online orders. I went home and brewed it up and immediately fell in love.

I find the flavor profile quite similar to read my lips; however the touch of vanilla in mint chocolate takes it to another level. It’s not like drinking the same tea as read my lips so it is a change up, but a slight one at that. I guess it would be great for those concerned about caffeine as well; however that is not one of my larger concerns.

Definitely a keeper for those who like mint and chocolate!

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
