The first steep of this smells medicinal, like cough syrup. While the taste isn’t bad, the smell is definitely off putting for a tea that’s supposed to mimic mint chocolate ice cream!

The second and third steepings are where this tea really shines. Gone is the medicinal overtone and all that’s left is a vaguely chocolate scent mixed in with mint. Mint is the predominant taste in these steepings, with the faintest background hint of cocoa. Absolutely delicious.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
