Last night I had mint gelato, this morning I had this wonderful tea. They both tasted the same. I love this stuff.

Ok, so I don’t have the most sensitive palate, so this tasting note might be a little confusing. So right when I opened up the packet, I definitely had a punch in the face of minty chocolate kind of like an Andes mint but mintier. After that first burst of smell, there was this lingering smell that I did not care for. The tea itself also starts off with a burst of mint flavor followed by some chocolate-y notes and then an aftertaste that tastes like that lingering smell. It might be the cacao nibs, some other flavoring in the tea, or the type of black tea maybe. Anyone have ideas?
Anyway, I like the initial smell/taste of the mint, but that aftertaste is kinda bugging me. We’ll see what happens with this one.
Finished this one off yesterday in my timolino. It was literally my only tea yesterday afternoon because I was out of the office hosting interviews (it’s THAT time of year again, sadly). I had a headache by the end, but at least this one kept me company for the first hour or so. It wasn’t as good as it is in a cup – somehow, the flavours seemed a bit muted. Still okay, though.
First sipdown of the day. I didn’t taste much of the chocolate on this brew but the mint was just right. Will try to add more leaves next time or increase the brewing time. No additions on this one either. Will try milk and a little bit of sweetener. I don’t think this will be good for re-steep since it has chocolate nibs that melts on the first steep. Will still try to re-steep to see what I get.
At first, there was some sort of buttery/honey/vanilla note that seemed strongest to me, along with the mint and chocolate. But I got used to it and liked it. I usually make my cup with 2 or 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of tea with some stevia. I like it sweetened the best but it isn’t bad plain. The mint and chocolate seem well-balanced. As I get through the bag, things are evening out, so maybe I got a dollop of honeybush or vanilla by accident. Good tea!
