This is an even mix of bright green mint and dark choppy tea leaves. It smells just like a York Peppermint Patty but slightly heavier on the mint side.

The light copper colored tea smells of mint but no chocolate. In flavor, the mint is initially subdued. I can’t fully describe the initial taste but it’s not chocolate; instead, it’s just a flatness. The lingering mint aftertaste is typical of any other mint brew.

H&S does so well with the chocolate flavor in Florence that I would have expected a greater presence in this tea. It was really just a mint tea with a little something extra.

I liked this tea, but it is so hot and humid here that the lingering mint was what made me like it! Adding milk seems to bring the chocolate more to the forefront, just like with Florence, but I had decided to try it mixed with Chocolate by H&S yet I haven’t done so yet. Maybe I can give it a try later today.

I agree with you on this one. I usually mix my own chocolate mints anymore…..I tend to like more chocolate tea, and less peppermint than most tea blenders put together.
