Scent: mmmm… chocolate! Unlike other chocolate teas I’ve tried the scent doesn’t remind me of liquid candy. It does smell pretty sweet though… the best way I can describe it is thin mint girl scout cookies with a dash of maple syrup.
Flavour: wow… this is incredible! They managed to balance the chocolate and peppermint perfectly so neither would be overwhelming. The chocolate flavour is dark rather than sweet (yum!), and the mint complements it with a fresh, cool aftertaste. One of my problems with chocolate teas is that they tend to be sickeningly sweet but Read My Lips is an exception, props to whoever came up with this concoction!
I can see myself drinking this black tea year round, especially when I get a craving for sweets. Looks like my tea cupboard has a new long term resident… I’m stocking up on this one!
