From DAVIDsTEA

Cool sophistication

You won’t want anything else for dessert when you taste this tea. Even the aroma is totally satisfying. Minty fresh, with hints of dark chocolate and rich vanilla. Pour it and admire the coppery red of the rooibos, filled to the brim with antioxidants. Then take a sip and sink into its velvety sweetness. You can’t help but fall in love.

So it is getting late and despite spending the afternoon in bed (so sick…blegh), I am exhausted. But craving a cuppa to round out my day. So I asked my wife to make me a cup of an herbal we had to drink down, something we need to get rid of, and then I decided on this.

Lovely, lovely choice. I was never much of a dessert girl, I’ve always preferred savory foods over sweet, but I can see now why people get into the habit of dessert teas. This is just a lovely, minty way to end my day. I love the vanilla and the mint and the chocolate is present, but not overwhelming. I’m sad to see this one come off the wall. I think when I finish my little 26 g, I will likely replace it, if it is still available.

mmmmm… Perfect cup for a day like today. I was so busy running around, I knew I couldn’t have more caffeine. I just had my first meal. And it’s coooooooold out right now! BUT, I get my culprit tooth pulled next week. Yay!
AND my dog actually let me drink this cup. She’s not a fan of peppermint.

This is one of my favourite Rooibos teas. It’s minty, it’s chocolately, what is not to love?! It has a light earthy taste to it, and the longer you steep it (accidentally for me) the more clay like it tastes but it’s not overwhelming due to the mint in it. Wonderful tea to sip on when it’s freezing outside. Always warms me up!

Glad you found such a winner. Sounds wonderful to try…snowing outside right now…so I can almost imagine a steaming cup all decked out like a latte. Hope your little boys are over the flu! Be well!

I got this because it smelled really nice in the store. This tastes like those mint crisp chocolate bars. It’s creamy chocolate with hints of mint.

Wow, this tea is… thick? That’s what I was thinking anyway.

I steeped it up and it was quite dark. I was surprised by it honestly. I didn’t expect it to look so dark and basically thick. So, I added a bunch of skim milk… yep a bunch. It needed more than I usually use. Normally I just add a little bit to change the colour mostly. But today, I needed more.

I got the chocolate/mint part no problem. I didn’t notice the vanilla too much tho, unless that just was to add the smoothness to the tea…?

Anyway, it’s a good tea. I think I would maybe get this one again? Actually… I dunno. I really like the Read My Lips. I would probably stick with that one as I like the black tea base a bit more. This is a great option for those looking to stay away from the caffeine but still have a chocolate/mint tea.

Have you tried any of the Della Terra chocolate mint teas??

Fjellrev

Yeah, if you like Read My Lips, check out Della Terra. :)

TheKesser

I haven’t yet. I’ve been wanting to try Della Terra for a bit now, but still haven’t ordered anything from them.

RML was my favorite chocolate mint tea until I discovered Della Terra’s!!

Amazing bedtime tea. I’m quickly changing to unflavored blacks and flavored rooibos as tastes change so this is an amazing replacement for mint chocolate black tea which I love. Sample from alysha
Oh, did I mention how amazing it smells? Wow.

I went through that 10g sample far too fast! I gotta get me more of this, and I gotta have LOTS of this on hand!!

I had this as a sample in store this morning. It was better than I expected. The chocolate and mint were well-balanced and the rooibos base was smooth. There was no artificial aftertaste like in a lot of chocolate teas I’ve tried. Like all chocolate teas though, it just left me craving a cup of hot chocolate. :-)

I have improved my rating of this one because I found that the chocolate came through a lot better this time and mixed perfectly with the mint to taste like a mint chocolate bar (of which I am undeniably a fan). I made it with boiling water and 1 and half teaspoons and it was excellent, very full bodied and flavourful.
I will be making a trip to DAVIDs tomorrow to grab some of this before it is removed from the stores and only available online!

Kittenna

Haven’t made it to my little sample yet, so no in-store re-buy for me, if I like it. Sigh. Too many teas, too little time :)

The decorating is done, the presents wrapped and the first few batches of cookies are baked… Time for some tea!

You can’t go wrong with chocolate mint rooibos. I find the mint in this somewhat subltle, it’s there for sure (leaves a nice tingle in my mouth) but as more of an undertone than shining though. This time I found the chocolate a bit darker than usual, not that I mind but it’s just a bit of a different experience.
