For some reason, I legitimately thought this was coconut and mint. Apparently I did not read any descriptions whatsoever, just thought that it would be good. I guess I assumed it would be “choco” or “cocoa” if it meant chocolate, but you know what happens when you assume.

The tea leaves are long, soft and green. I say soft, because when pulling a pinch out of the tin, they almost feel damp, but on further inspection, it is just the leaves and the tiny cilia that grew on the green tea before it was harvested. Sorry for the science. Anyway, the tea smells minty and the faint odor of cooking chocolate, the bittersweet and milk chocolate blends you buy in quarter-size flat disks to melt to make confectionery treats covered in chocolate, hopefully you know what I am talking about.

The brewed tea smells like a decent blend, there is the green tea odor and then it smells like Junior Mints candy. The hot tea (hot with no sugar added) tastes like green tea with some chocolate and then the refreshing, minty, sweet-breath feel after you swallow the tea. As it cools, it loses all of these flavors and turns bitter, as if you over-steeped a green tea and allowed chocolate to burn in the bottom with little to no mint at all.

This unfortunate turn of events as the tea cools leads me to my usual conclusions. Either one, this brew probably would do better with a little bit of sugar, it does not need sweetness added, but I think that it would subdue the bitterness in the end. Or two, this has to go into a tea cozy or on a warmer or only be made in small amounts so as to always have it hot.

Overall, it was not bad, I enjoyed it while it was hot. Will try my own advice and let you know!

I know what you mean about the name! I’ve emailed them and brought it up in live chat but they refuse to change it.

Cinoi

haha, i figured they would be stubborn about it, so be it, now we know :)

Cofftea

I almost passed it up cuz I thought it was coconut. SO glad I didn’t!

Cinoi

I’m not in disappointed that it is not coconut, I just thought it was. How do you take it?

Cofftea

As I do all my teas (reserve chai), clean. I haven’t tried it cold though. Maybe this summer. Even though it is a green tea, I’d like to try a bit of white chocolate creamer in it. Which is funny cuz I can’t even bring myself to put milk in my Kashmiri chai lol.

S

Cinoi, I always thought it was coconut too! I think they should add an “a” to the name, so it’s Cocoamint instead of Cocomint…pronounced the same, but you can tell it’s chocolate not coconut!

Ricky

I think I would have loved it if it was coconut and mint, but argh, I couldn’t stand it. It’s most unfortunately, but hey, at least my friend loved it.

Cinoi

I’m so glad I was not alone in thinking it was coconut :) I would have loved coconut and mint too, but I think with some tweaks, this tea can be very good.

JustDuckyInNE

Cinoi, your description begins exactly as my experience did and like the rest of you, I expected coconut and mint. I thought it was an odd combination but hey, gotta try everything once!
I kept seeing an “H” in the name once I had smelled & tasted it. I agree, very strange way to name a chocolate mint tea.

I’m home alone a lot and silence creeps me out so I have the tv on just for noise. There isn’t much on in the afternoon so I normally have Full House reruns on. Today the “yummy in the tummy” episode was on so I wanted to have something that was yummy in MY tummy. Now all of my teas qualify as that, but I wanted something special. Chais and most of my dessert teas are out cuz of my over doing it this morning, but I thought this’d be perfect. The green tea and the mint balance perfectly w/ the chocolate making it not too sweet, almost a sweet/savory balance.

I’ve been thinking though the issue of chocolate and tea for years without doing much about it. Though I’ve made chocolate chai’s before with black teas, I was given some fine chocolate with green tea (as a bar) and I liked the combo.
The problem is mixing greens and milk.
But I’m thinking of making a tea with cocoa, lavender and gunpowder. What do you think?

Cofftea

What do you mean the problem is mixing greens and milk? That wouldn’t be my cuppa because I don’t like lavender, although I love chocolate and rose.

Ricky

I’ve mixed green tea and milk before. Down in the tummy it goes =]

Cofftea

shudders lol just not my cuppa. I can’t even add milk to kashmiri chai.

Thank you… to whoever sent this to me! Was it* SimplyJen? or NinaVampi?* Hmmmm. I had them in nice n neat piles but they got mixed up when we cleaned out the cupboards a few months ago. oops :/
Anyhow, the tea…
This is interesting. Chocolate is the first note. Light and juicy, not heavy the way I pictured chocolate would be. Behind that is an equally light minty flavour. Somewhat distant compared to the chocolate but that part is nice. I wouldn’t want it overpowering the tea.
However, it did taste a bit plasticky, and I’m not sure why! I’ve seen that in green teas before.
The second steep was better than the first. Much more balanced with the tea flavour, however I found it rather scratchy as well.
Oh and I made a cup (of the first steep) for Dad and he hated it! I was shocked, as he has never, to my knowledge, poured a cup of anything, much less tea, down the drain. I mean, it wasn’t terrible. Really!! and the face he made… well, that was priceless. ha!
Nonetheless, it was a pleasant experience. I’d drink this one again!

Indigobloom

OK so the second steep… I accidentally let the rest of my cup get cold and I think this would be great iced!! Upping the rating :)

4th tea from “Another Traveling Tea Box?!?!” and my second Adagio tea ever.
So far Adagio is not impressing me. The base is actually ok, it comes across as just below the quality of the Teavivre dragonwell I had yesterday, except a little more grassy. Surprisingly, the chocolate is not milk chocolate and is actually pretty good. Unfortunately, the mint really misses the mark and brings the whole blend down. It’s so artificial! I keep getting the image of cheap neon green bubble gum passing through my head as I drink it. It leaves a bitter aftertaste that is not pleasant at all. I may need to dump this one out and I don’t say that a lot.

caile

Too bad you’re not having luck with them. Many years ago I bought a bunch of Adagio teas and I didn’t really like them, although I tried. I’m sure there are some good ones though.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I’m sure there are some- just not these! :-)

caile

:-) Maybe you’ll find one!

After today I should only have enough for one more attempt. I don’t know if I will re-order this one at least not for a while. I’m looking forward to discovering some new teas from Adagio. Regardless this smells of Minty-M&Ms today…but taste more green tea-esque than in previous infusions. Still an OK cuppa!

Cofftea

One of my absolute favorite dessert teas. Inspite of the MASSIVE amount of tea I do have, I’m sad I’m out of this one.

Bethany

What do you think will be in your next Adagio order? I feel like I’ve ordered most of the ones that I wanted to try.

TeaEqualsBliss

Well, I probably won’t order until mid Jan…I’m going to get at least 4 blends of mine. I think I might do a chai or two and Dragon Pearl, maybe!?

When I grabbed a sample bag of this with my last Adagio order, I really, really thought it was coconut and mint. But um. Nope. That’s not hugely disappointing, but was a mild surprise when I opened the sample baggie. This seems to be a common thread in the reviews, so I don’t feel too stupid about this.

That said, this is a little like melted Junior Mints. It’s dark chocolate with a slightly artificial tasting minty flavor. When hot, it’s basically a dark chocolate green tea with a minty after effect. The artificial flavors are waaaaaaay more prominent this way, and I can honestly say I don’t like it. It’s much better iced where the mint is the prominent flavor and the chocolate is less plasticy and more subtle overall.

Definitely an overwhelmingly meh cup.

Enjoyable tea. I was surprised by the name between ordering and receiving; I had forgotten that it was chocolate not coconut (an odd combination I agree, but I would have tried it once).
The leaves were pressed paper flat and a beautiful dark green. The first smell of the leaves was very strong, very minty, with only a whiff of very fake chocolate scent. While steeping the wet leaves smelled clearly of mint and chocolate and pleasantly “Junior Mint movie time.” Through to the dregs, the taste was steady for me; I used two teaspoons (not measuring spoons, the kind you use on the table). I think it would be great over ice this summer.

It definitely was an enjoyable tea, just the naming seemed to throw everyone off. The iced version is good, I should get around to writing another review on this one…Oh well, glad you liked it!

Stephanie

I agree that that name makes me think “coconut”. They should rename it choco nut!

Cofftea

I’ve mentioned to them that it should be chocomint or cocoamint, but they said no.

Thanks SoccerMom for this sample! I got it today. This is actually my first green loose leaf tea experience. I probably should have started with a plain green sencha or Gunpowder or something, but this is what I have. I didn’t know how to measure the leaves as they are so large, and I don’t have a food scale, so I did a few pinches of tea to 16oz. I heated my water to 180F and steeped for 3 minutes.

Wow do these leaves get ginormus when steeped! I was quite surprised. Makes me want to order some green tea pearls to watch those unfurl. Anyways, back to the tea at hand (in cup?). This tea smells like junior mints and hay. I don’t know if hay is my way of saying “vegetal” but it definitely has a hay aroma. Thankfully this doesn’t come through in the taste. The flavoring is definitely flavoring as there are no chocolate nibs or cocoa in this tea. I believe the mint is an flavor and not in here in any form either. I think they probably could have thrown in some peppermint leaves but maybe the cocomint is all one flavor combination.

Tastes alright, glad to have tried it, not sure I’d order more.

Cofftea

As far as measuring, I used 1 teaspoon of leaves per 6oz before I got my scale. This is by far my favorite dessert tea. I almost cry whenever I see someone not like it lol.

Meghann M

I think I’m just not used to green tea in leaf form. I’ve had such horrible green teas (lipton bagged green) up until recently it takes alot for me to get over the vegetal/hay/freshness to it. I’m sure they will start to grow on me and I will revisit them, but currently my tastebuds crave Chai blends and Fruity blends. Even flavored blacks.

Cofftea

You’ll find that your tastebuds will go in cycles. For instance, I started my loose tea experience by adding mint to *every*thing. Now the only mint tea I have regularly is this and I also add flavored mints to the water I use to make matcha.

SoccerMom

I agree with Cofftea on this one. I still consider myself new to the world of loose leaf teas but I find myself going in cycles with my favorites.

Cofftea

SoccerMom, I think that happens w/ everything- not just tea. Look at what you did/didn’t like as a kid and what you do/don’t now.

When I was going through my stuff from when we put in new carpet and tile (which I still need to sort) I found the box that I put KallieBoo! samples that she sent me a while back. Which was awesome.

Sadly When i put the tea samples in the box, for whatever dumb reason I didn’t take into account that the box has a supper strong musty smell. I mean REALLY STRONG! ARgu, why I put them in there I don’t know.

Anyways when I went to brew the tea it tasted decent enough. Green tea with a nice touch of mint and a hint of cocoa. Then a super strong taste of old must. damn………….

Ysaurella

oh ! you’re no more a tiger but a cup now :)

Ze_Teamaker

ahah, Yeah. I decided to change it to my Blogs logo. I will miss the tiger though. I LOVE TIGERS!

Thank you Kallieboo! for sending me this sample. Almost everyone seems to love this tea, I am the anomaly…

The dry leaves smell AMAZING!

The color of the tea is a light amberish green.

The tea smells very fishy. Did I oversteep? It is past Vegetal and into the salty – brothy – and into fishy territory.

When I dumped the cup down the drain there was so much minty potential. Yet – it just did not work for me.
