From 52teas

One of our regulars is always trying to combine different combinations of vanilla and mint. His most recent favorite is blending our vanilla bean cheesecake chai with the mintastic. So, this one is for Truong.

Here’s a caffeine-free African honeybush blended with white chocolate chips, organic vanilla beans and fresh cut spearmint. Enjoy!

Backlog from a few nights ago……

I needed a non-caffeine tea for evening, and I remembered that Jillian had sent this one to me. (Thank you!) It was just enough for a small pot. I think I brewed it for around 7 or 8 minutes. I could definitely taste the chocolate, and the mint was there, but not at all overpowering as mints often are for my taste. It was really a good evening tea and was great for settling the stomach. Hmmm. I might need to try some mint in some of my other de-/non-caff teas…..

Very Monty. This will probably be the last pot of the night as I have a very early morning tomorrow.

I was so excited that my tea came today from 52teas! It was such a tough decision to decide which to try first! I chose this one…. and I am in HEAVEN!!! Ooohhh the spearmint vanilla are awesome together and there were white chocolate chips in the tea!!!! I LOVE it! I can’t wait to try the Strawberry pie next. It smells good enough to eat right out of the pouch it came in :) I am new to honeybush but this stuff is great. I steeped for 8min. Does that sound about right?

Yeah depending on how much leaf you use, I’d go 5-10. W/ this one it also may depend on how much mint is actually in it. White chocolate is a really delicate flavor compared to dark or milk chocolate and you don’t want the mint to over take it.

Kristen

On a side note I also liked the packages the tea came in! Very cute!

Kristen

Thanks Cofftea, I can taste the white choc but it is subtle… the spearmint and vanilla is more apparent.

Cofftea

Oh that’s right… this was your 1st order, wasn’t it?! YAY!=D

The dry leaf smell on this tea is, for lack of a better word, strange. I must admit, my nose was a little confused. I had never smelled anything quite like that before. (I think I even heard Frank laugh a little). I was a little skeptical about ordering, but of course, its the tea of the week, and I really do love grasshopper anything.

The taste? Ever had Braum’s Peppermint Ice Cream? That’s exactly what came to mind when I drank this one as an iced latte. It is mouthwateringly good. Of course it’s not peppermint in this tea, its spearmint, which in my humble opinion makes it better than peppermint ice cream (geez, I didn’t know that was even possible) as it brings that unique factor. Thank you Frank, I think I have a new favorite.

I can’t wait until mine arrives!!

I’ve had this three times already but I’ve put off writing about it. I was hoping that my opinion of it would improve. I never disliked it, but it never felt creamy and chocolatey enough to be called a grasshopper. I mean, grasshoppers are probably the only cocktails I like. There’s plenty of mint in this, and there’s a slight chocolate background, but that’s it. Underneath it all, there’s that honeybush flavor that I’ve grown to enjoy.

I still really like this. I mean, it’s minty and tasty, after all. But I wouldn’t call it a grasshopper.

Thanks for the sample, Batrachoid.

Got this in a swap with QueenofTarts. I’ve been wanting to try this one, so I had high hopes. Plus I love just about anything 52teas so I knew I’d enjoy this.

That being said, while this is good, it’s not the best. It’s definitely tasty – and if it was blended by anyone else I would be a fan. But there’s something…off about this.

When I think of White Chocolate Grasshopper, I’m remembering these grasshopper cookies I enjoyed as a kid: chocolate-y and minty. There’s not much mint flavor at all, which is disappointing.

However, I normally cannot enjoy white chocolate and yet I can with this blend. It definitely tastes like light chocolate and there’s a syrupy taste I enjoy as well. Plus it’s caffeine-free so it’s a nice dessert tea.

I ended up adding extra spearmint to the blend and liked it much more….although I went a bit overboard on the mint and could barely taste the white chocolate!) Overall this is definitely a good blend, sweet and subtle, but not my favorite at 52teas. (Pancake Breakfast still holds that title.)

I’ll keep trying it with mint, maybe White Choc. Grasshopper and I can reach a healthy medium!

I like this more than I did when I first tried it. Liking it sort of snuck up on me. It was good the first time I tried it, but I really do like the way the white chocolate tones the mint downs, softens it and rounds it out. I think mint can often be to harsh and overpowering, but not in this blend. I also love the sweet honeybush in this – it isn’t overpowered by any of the other flavours.

52teas

If you like this one, you would probably really like our Shamrock green tea. It has peppermint and spearmint with just a touch of vanilla to smooth out the hard edges of the mint.

Thanks – I’ll have to check it out!

Another tea from the traveling tea box, I’m really enjoying working through all of them. Thanks again to Dr Jim for starting the new box.

I love white chocolate, mint, and honeybush so in theory I should have really loved this tea, but I didn’t. I found the spearmint to be overpowering letting only a hint of the other flavors through. There is something about the flavor that just misses the mark, so I’m glad that I only made an 8oz cup to start with, because I ended up dumping this one out.

Got this a while back, but I’m kind of surprised that I never wrote anything about it. It is probably because I am a lazy git.

Anyway, last night I was feeling kind of iffy around the tummy yet was also craving something dessert-tastic and turned to this. Handily enough, I have already consumed most of the white chocolate chips in this in previous cups – which is not to say that there weren’t many of them, I am just nearing the end of the pouch. Anyway, so without the prospect of melted white chocolate to add heaviness to the tea, I thought this would be a perfect way to appease my belleh (mint!) while still having a sweeter tea.

I am pleased to report that my efforts were successful, as belleh remained appeased, yay! The tea was also quite good, as I said with the coconut cheesecake honeybush, I really like honeybush as a base for dessert tea and I think it really fit the flavors blended here. I definitely like the mint with it.

I feel a little bad only reviewing this now, because, as I said, all the white chocolate chips are gone at this point so I’m not really reviewing the full experience as it were. From what I can recall though, the white chocolate made it somewhat sweeter and gave it kind of a smoother texture overall. The addition of the mint kept the tea relatively light though, which I liked .
