I taste the mint and I taste the chocolate but for some reason it just didn’t work for me, so it just wasn’t my cuppa tea. A bummer indeed.

This tea does taste like a liquid thin mint cookie. This is a very nice chocolate mint tea. I really enjoyed the taste. I’m usually an assam or yunnan tea drinker so this experience is broadening my tea drinking experience. The good thing is that I’m drinking teas that I normally would not drink. A very nice tea.
Carolyn said this is like eating a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie. Her description fit my experience. I was able to notice a nice chocolate flavor and there was a trace of mint. I thought there was enough mint, but it wasn’t MINT, if you catch my drift. I put in some soy creamer, so mine tasted kind of like Thin Mints dipped in milk. It was definitely delicious and I’m looking forward to trying it again!
I’m beginning to think I don’t have the palate to taste the chocolate in this tea. I like it. It is tasty. I will drink it again and enjoy it a great deal. But it just doesn’t have a chocolate taste to me.
I’ll probably still experiment with it some more, but for now, I’m reducing my score a bit because it isn’t quite what it’s supposed to be.
I was hoping this would be an Andes Mint in liquid form. :)
Actually it’s pretty pepperminty. Very herbaceous. I can detect the chocolate more in the aftertaste—making it more of an impression of chocolate, to me.
I think the flavors would be enhanced if prepared as a “milk tea”.
Okay so I received this as a gift from AmazonV thanks AmazonV!:) I don’t totally hate this tea it’s not something I would ever purchase to drink but it’s not disgusting either.
The smell when I opened the envelope was amazing but I know from 52Teas Chocomate that smells can be deceiving! So I proceed to steep it up following the directions and the result is a very dark liquor it’s quite nice looking the taste isn’t what I was expecting after reading others reviews comparing this to girl scout thin mints while I am more of a Caramel Delights kinda gal myself I thought what the heck!?!
The flavor allows you to still taste the tea base which is a plus (to me) but the chocolate and mint just don’t pack enough punch to balance out the black tea base.
While I am not a huge Adagio fan I would rather drink cocomint green tea by Adagio than this. Or H&S chocolate mint. I guess I am still on my quest to find a 52Teas tea that I adore. Thanks Again AmazonV! It’s not a total loss my son is enjoying it iced with milk, sweetener, and crushed ice.

I was expecting liquid girl scout thin mint cookies based off other reviews. I got mint tea. Perhaps I need to try a shorter steep and cream and sugar next time? I am so disappointed I am not sure I am even willing to give it a next time.
Both MilitiaJim and Bobbie also soundly rejected this tea and wanted nothing to do with it.
Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar
Changes the profile to that of black tea followed by a bitter mint, chocolate is more pronounced.
The sugar makes this a different tea but not much better of a tea.
