Ahh! All the chocolate bits in mine melted on their voyage through the mail. Still managed to get the melted bits into the teapot though.

I’m still feeling sick, so I wanted to try this one first of my newest try-me pack from Della Terra. The smell was really alluring – like a perfect balance of minty and chocolate – and the dry tea itself is very pretty (I love green and black together). Tasting it, it’s definitely a sweeter tea – the initial taste is more of a lightly chocolate-flavored black tea, but then the aftercool from the mint hits at the same time as the richer chocolate taste does, and it’s perfect. Definitely a refreshing sort of tea.

Bio

I’m a literature major in East Texas who only recently decided to get into tea! I have no idea why I waited so long, but I am diving headlong into it.

Besides tea stuff, I’m an enormous lover of literature, particularly that from East Asia and Eastern Europe. I love surrealism in all it’s varieties, as well as unusual/strange books in general. I also love board gaming, firearms, succulents and general self-education.

Ratings:
85-100: Ideally, would keep these in my cupboard at all times.
75-84: Would gladly drink all of what I have and likely buy more.
60-74: Not going to actively seek it out, but not against trying it again.
50-59: Will finish what I have, but likely won’t revisit.
Below 50: Can’t even finish the cup.

I’m probably not going to be using ratings under 50 much, since I read reviews extensively before buying and can /usually/ tell what I’ll like.
