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!

You know, the name of this tea was a big part of the reason why I got it. I mean, grasshopper tea? With white chocolate? Come on, how can that not be awesome?

It smells like creme de menthe liqueur mixed with white chocolate – very mouth-watering (I love white chocolate). At first the tea mostly tasted like mint and honeybush but when it cooled a bit the sweet choclolate and the vanilla were more easily apparent. The result is a lightly sweet, creamy tea with just the right amount of cool, refreshing mint. It’s a unique and delicious blend that’s another winner from 52Teas.

Where to begin? I had just gave into the naughty tea demons perched on my shoulder and purchased two of the 52 tea honeybush blends. It was daring, since I had yet to sample a honey bush tea, and red bush doesn’t get on with me for some reason.

Fast forward to the next week, the new teas hadn’t yet arrived & now there is a White Chocolate Grasshopper tea to be had. OMG!!! The tea demons were clamouring, the penny pinching angels were ’tsk’ing vigourously. How could I justify? How could I know? What do I do?

Well, guess what. I did it.
And when to came, it smelled of gentle spearmint bending on a white chocolate breeze. The tea (w/ milk) was amazing. Gentle, sweet. Minty. Chocolatey. Lovely. It lived up to the special magic that I feel with a cup of Tetley’s (the proper english tea) on a bad day…it was a ‘hug in a cup.’ But this wasn’t a bad day at all, this was cause for celebration. For this heralds the arrival of the “tea of happiness” :D

All is happy here in the world of tea. ….but I don’t even want to think what will happen when I run out. :O


I hate red bush. LOVE green bush though!

Very nice. I’ve learned that I don’t love tisanes, but this one is good as they go. Really lovely, sweet, just minty enough goodness. I tried it hot and cold, and definitely prefer it hot. What a nice variation on mint and honey bush, all rolled into one!

The last of the samples I ordered from Rachel!

This one sounded good in theory – I like honeybush, I like spearmint, and I like white chocolate. And it is both tasty and accurate to each of these flavors – however there’s something about the aroma that is really off putting. I don’t know what it is specifically, and why I only get it in the smell and not the taste – but it’s really taking away from what would be a pleasing late afternoon drink.

This tea is pretty yummy. Definitely has a sweetness to it that I like (I think it’s the vanilla and perhaps the white chocolate), but also a nice mint component as well. I think that the mint is the dominant flavor, followed by the sweetness in the swallow. The honeybush is a fantastic background for these flavors. Not my favorite from 52Teas, but I’m glad that I tried a pouch. It’s a bit too much mint and not enough of the vanilla/chocolate. I might want to try this tea iced now that the weather is getting warmer!

Yep, love this one! For a few hours today I was able to smell fairly well. Do you know what I do during times like that? I go to my tea drawer and open the tins and bags and inhale deeply. Such joy. Such bliss. So much happiness is found in the rich scent of teas.

I made myself a couple of cups of this one tonight because the scent made me happy. What better reason to drink tea, right?

This is the 52Teas reboot version.

Dry tea scent: pure, white mint. Like wintergreen. I couldn’t really smell the white chocolate, but I did get a couple of beautiful white chocolate chips into my teaball. I’m kind of expecting the white chocolate to melt into my tea and turn it a bit more translucent, but it still appears pretty transparent, if dark.

This tea is like pure, white mint, like the hard ones you get in the restaurant, the texture of chalk, but they slowly melt in your mouth like ice, and when you blow afterwards, you almost expect to see your breath. Those mints.

Since mint is the predominant flavor in a grasshopper, I’d say this one is pretty spot-on as to the flavor. I do kind of wish I was getting the chocolate a bit more. I think it’s there, and I can almost taste it if I try looking for it, but it’s overshadowed by the mint.

This tea makes me think of being wrapped up in winter clothing, playing in deep snow. The fact that it is hot tea against the mint emphasizes that toasty warm feeling of being all wrapped up against the iciness, a beacon of heat against the cold.

Imagine if I cold-brewed this one…

This is another one I may need to try with milk and sugar, to see if it brings out the chocolate a little more. Also, next time, I might separate out the white chocolate chips, and add them directly to the water, rather than inside the tea ball. I mean, I think the melted chocolate would have made it through the mesh, but I’m not entirely certain. I might open up the teaball when I’m done to see whether I see any lumps of chocolate. I do think this will become a favorite – I just need to figure out my favorite way to drink it. :)

Tastes like a mellower version of Graveyard Mist. The white chocolate is pretty non-existent. Meh.

EDIT: As it cooled, there was a floral base to this. I am not a fan of floral teas, but if that’s your thing you will like this tea.

I brewed some of this to put in the fridge the other night. This is not a flavor I would think to serve iced mostly because I tend to prefer chocolate-y or creamy flavored teas as hot teas, but this is really yummy iced. It’s like a candy bar – it really curbs that sweet tooth.
