I have so much of this tea I decided to make a HUGE bottle of iced tea. All I can say is that it makes such a great iced tea. It’s minty and has a bit of a chocolate after taste. It’s really good hot too when you’re in the mood for it. That’s all really. The name pretty much explains it all. Chocolate mint goodness.

Works in theory, just not in execution. I’ll be drinking it for awhile though since I have a 4oz tin sigh It isn’t undrinkable, just not very good.

LENA

Oh no…I had that in my “to buy a sample of” list. You went bold with the 4oz tin, huh? I did the same with Adagio’s cin-apple rooibos and I hate it. Now I just get samples of everything and then order big.

@Lena: you never know, you might like it. My mom is totally in love with the cocomint green. I’m with Xanthia though. Can’t really get behind it.

Cofftea

Xanthia, try again with 2.25g in 6oz of purified water steeped at 175-180 degrees for 3 min. This is my FAVORITE dessert tea. If after that you really don’t like it, I’d be THRILLED to take it:)

LENA F., even if someone says a tea is horrible, don’t let that sway you from at least ordering a sample. I love some teas that other people hate and hate some teas that other people love. If you like chocolate, mint, and green tea, you should at least give it a shot. I did a full detailed tasting of it. Check it out.

Cofftea

@Xanthia, I’ll take whatever you have left off your hands. My email address is in my profile.

I think I’ll always enjoy the smell of chocolate/ mint. However, the chocolate flavour doesn’t really go with the green base. The mint is good though.

Number 24 from Another Travelling tea box.

This was a bit of a surprise. I had assumed that the “coco” in a green tea mix would mean coconut, and was totally unprepared for the chocolate aromas coming from the dry tea. I was prepared to be unimpressed but found that I actually liked the tea.

The aroma from the cup was dominated by chocolate, but the tea and mint come through as well. The taste starts as a grassy/straw green tea, with the chocolate mint flavor building until it is all alone in the finish. I didn’t like this well enough to want to buy more, but it was interesting, and fun to try.

Minty green tea with a flavor that seems like it’s trying to be chocolate but failing miserably — which is what I get from most chocolate teas, really. While this tastes pretty odd, I do like it well enough due to my enjoyment of minty greens; still, there are dozens of better ones out there.

One nice thing to note is that I’ve found that this is impossible to oversteep. I’ve had it steeping for 10+ minutes more than once accidentally and it just amplifies the flavor a bit without getting bitter.

I got this in a swap but I can’t remember from whom as I recently just moved and everything kind of got jumbled up. Anyways whomever it was, thank you so much! I loved it. I brewed it up this morning and took it along with me to my chocolate class… and how perfect it was, tasted just like mint chip ice cream. The mint was not as strong as I thought it might be. It was actually quite creamy and I loved it. Will definitely put this on my shopping list for future purchases. Or maybe even a first purchase from adiago. :)

The description of this tea sounds great … peppermint bark chocolate! The dry leaf also smells great. It reminds me of a York Peppermint patty.

This brews up to be a very light colored tea, and has retained a weaker version of the scent of the dry. Upon first sip though, my first impression is of overall weakness of flavors. When they say “whisps” of chocolate, they aren’t kidding. The dominate flavor is of green tea with peppermint, but there is that “somethin somethin” in the background that reminds one of chocolate. I followed directions, but feel that this could benefit from adding more tea than recommended. Overall I like the flavors. It’s light, so if one was expecting stronger flavors (like me), there would be disappointment. Going to retry later with more tea.

ETA: As it cools, the chocolate flavor comes out more.

This tea smells like feet.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a lot of chocolate and a little mint in there too. But the first thing I thought of shoving my nose into the little pouch of this I’ve got was a big pair of spent-the-day-walking-in-flip-flops gams. And it’s hard to get over a first impression like that. I’m not disgusted by feet like many people seem to be (in fact, I think they look kinda cool), but the smell of ’em is not what I expect when I open a foil bag of green tea.

Pouring some hot water over the leafy paws brings out the chocolate a lot more, but there’s still a distinct note of not-so-fresh feet. I’m not getting much mint from this scent, a notable feat given how dominating just a hint can be.

The liquor’s an unremarkable yellow color but a few minutes into the steep is beginning to let out some leafy green tea scent. Fortunately, that foot nonsense mostly vanishes when you get to tasting it, but it’s definitely still present – likely because it still smells that way. It’s all chocolate at first, a fake candy-coating sort of chocolate that isn’t as unpleasant as that description sounds. It leaves behind a mild freshness to remind you that there is, in fact, mint involved here, but there’s only the faintest flavor of green tea.

I’m liking this more as it cools down, and in fact raised my rating a bit as a result. This might be best iced – definitely gotta try it.

Still smells like feet, though.

It’s hard to be anything but ambivalent about this tea. I had the highest of hopes—albeit slightly misguided, since I didn’t bother reading other reviews and thought that the ‘coco’ in ‘cocomint’ stood for ‘coconut.’ The smell in the bag would lead one to believe that it’s got a wealth of chocolatey-minty goodness just waiting to be tasted, but…

Once in the mug, sweet lovers will be disappointed. The cocoa is left far, far behind in the greenyness, which itself is subtle at best. Just a touch of mint in there with it. If you prefer the natural flavor of green tea over added sweetening flavors, then this one may suit you. (Yep, a flavored tea for those who dislike flavored teas. Such a thing exists.) It’s kind of refreshing, actually.

Don’t add milk, but if you’re sore about the lack of cocoa-mintyness, then sugar it up and be content with that. This is a great spring tea otherwise, probably tastes super iced.
