I have to admit that this if my favorite tea. When one family heard about my tealog, she wondered what I’d write about since this is all that she usually sees me drink. I enjoy this tea any time of day – refreshing in the morning. At bedtime brewed as a decaf, it is a low-cal substitute for a cup of hot chocolate. With the mint it is a great tea to settle an upset stomach. Since it contains both black and green teas, I feel like I’ve covered all angles. I guess you’d have to call this my comfort tea.
This is my comfort tea – the one I reach for whenever I need a little extra push. After a very busy weekend, I found myself reaching for this several times today.
Originally fixed a pot of this to drink hot but we were lucky enough to have a nice warm day so we switch to drink it iced. What a delight!
Always come back to this one as my comfort tea. I’ve been trying to use up some of my other stash but find that this remains my favorite. Even with chocolate teas, I want them to taste like tea. This ones lives up to the name. You can taste the chocolate and the mint while still be reminded it is tea.
Just picked up a new supply. It was so fresh. They mentioned that it had just arrived. Until I had this cup I did not realize how much the original flavor had changed as I got to the small bits and pieces at the bottom of my tin. This new supply had a nice mellow chocolate flavor without the super strong minty flavor. Delightful cup.
Thank goodness this is very forgiving with the steep time. This was smelling so good that the boys were begging for hot chocolate. Anyway, I got busy fixing their drinks and forgot my tea steeping. Outside of the fact that it was not as warm as I prefer, it still tasted great.
Just ran by my favorite shop and picked up another batch of Chocolate Mint this morning. I was trying to ration it out ‘til Christmas but … that is a week away. When I find a tea that I really enjoy the others just don’t curb the craving. All the other chocolate teas that I’ve tried have a hint of artificial flavoring that ruins it for me. I’m also particular about the chocolate/mint ratio. With this brand it is just a hint of mint.
