This is very close to the Mint Chocolate Rooibos by David’s tea, but the flavor isn’t as intense. It isn’t as minty or as chocolatey (this is shaping up to be a very sophisticated analysis, eh?) But it IS caffeinated, so I guess that will be the determining factor on which one I’ll reach for in the future.

I thought this tea would have gotten a higher rating. Bought it for my sister a couple years ago and she raved about it.

It’s a solid tea, that’s fairly straight forward. However, I think having recently enjoyed the DT rooibos version, this one was less impressive by comparison. I’m a huge fan of Harney and this is a nice tea, just nothing extraordinary :)

Have you ever tried Harney’s Tokyo Blend?. I really enjoy it. Bancha green tea, toasted sesame seeds, & caramel flavors.

I have not! I am headed there later in the week, and might need to add it to my shopping list though, it sounds amazing!

I also have some of their Bangkok Blend, I have yet to sample. I’ll do it in the next day or two & post a review for you.

“The heaven of modern humanity is indeed shattered in the Cyclopean struggle for wealth and power. The world is groping in the shadow of egotism and vulgarity. Knowledge is bought through a bad conscience, benevolence practised for the sake of utility. The East and West, like two dragons tossed in a sea of ferment, in vain strive to regain the jewel of life…Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzo Okakura, “The Book of Tea”

I am happiest at a tea room, or snuggled up at home with a freshly brewed cup.
