Ok, I’ll admit it, I bought this tea just because of the cow sprinkles and I don’t even like sprinkles in my tea. I thought this tea would make a good conversation piece, I mean it has COW SPRINKLES. Crazy.
I’m really glad Della Terra made a rooibos version of this since I don’t drink much black tea. I also think the rooibos goes a long way in hiding the taste of the chocolate flavoring they use since I don’t care for it.
The dry leaf of this tea smells like a peppermint patty, but it doesn’t quite taste like one (it would be really awesome if it did.) The rooibos doesn’t come through very much, I only taste it a little bit at the end of each sip. The mint is what comes through the most, but I only get a hint of chocolate and a bit of creaminess from the vanilla bits and I wish they had stood out a little more.
Personal Rant I do wish companies would be more descriptive in their ingredient lists when it comes to using mint. I could avoid teas that use spearmint a lot easier if they wouldn’t just use mint catchall phrase.
