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.

While this tea is reasonably tasty, the chocolate is not strong enough. The mint in it is also not strong enough for my tastes. That being said I am managing to enjoy this tea. Having it tonight instead of my usual evening tea, peppermint. I will try cold brewing this tea and see if it is better. It’s not exactly bad it’s just not as good as I had hoped. I picked this up today when I stopped by the only quasi local David’s Tea. I do think it is starting to improve as it cools a bit.

I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 5 min.

I am on a quest for the perfect Rooibos! Unfortunately, this isn’t it. I am still not super excited about chocolate in my tea, although chocolate and Rooibos do go together quite well. It’s the mint that is really out of place here. Mint belongs in an herbal tea – not a Rooibos. It’s still okay to drink, but nothing special. Too bad…the quest continues…

I am not a fan of mint nor am I a fan of chocolate in tea. Usually. But I like this. Thankfully, it appeared in a sample box because if I had been left to my own devices, never in a million years would I have bought or chosen this.

Both flavours are present but neither in an in-your-face kind of annoying way. The rooibos gives a nice groundedness to this blend and perhaps takes the edge off the mint: freshness but not that of gum or toothpaste. The chocolate is just a bit of a lingering thing on the palate. It is just an echo of a flavour here, but the rooibos gives it a bit of body, unlike the thinness of many chocolate teas.

I may buy this on its own.

DAVID’s iced teas of the day were this and Black Cherry and, since I really don’t like Black Cherry, I decided to try this. This is predominantly mint, and there’s something about DAVID’s mint that I really dislike. It almost tastes dusty to me. On top of that, mint isn’t something I would normally consider doing iced, and it definitely doesn’t work in this case. It tastes like drinking a glass of water right after using mouthwash. Hardly a hint of chocolate and I didn’t notice the rooibos at all. I would be willing to give this a go hot, but I think it would be so similar to Mint to Be or Read My Lips and still have that gross mint. I did get through my cup, but mostly because it tastes like water until the mint hits you.

Man, I love this tea!! So far it’s the only one this summer I’ve gone and bought as an iced tea twice xD I’m definitely going to have to add some this one to my collection once I have some room in my tea drawer <3

I received this tea as a sample in my Easter Egg Hunt tea collection. I had high hopes for the tea and I did actually enjoy it. It was very nice.

I like Read My Lips better but I’m trying to cut back on caffeine and this is a good substitute.

Ohmygosh. This is so amazing! I received this as part of a sampler and it is my absolute favorite. I love mint tea and I looooovvvveee rooibos. Adding the two together and adding chocolate is the best idea ever. I have to get myself a bag of this because it’s so delish.

Had this at my parents’ in law place. Surprisingly, yet another David’s classic I have yet to try. I’m not big on mint chocolate or too much chocolate in tea but I figured I’d give it a try. Overal it’s not bad. Rooibos is the most prominent taste, chocolate is more so in the smell and aftertaste and then a hint of mint. I’m glad to have tried it but I’m not crazy about it so I don’t think I’ll purchase it.

Yesterday was point redeeming day, and I’m glad that I waited that long because the store I visited happened to just get Ceremonial Matcha in a few days earlier, so I instantly grabbed it as one of my free ones, plus a bunch of 10-20g amounts of others such as this.

Zen’s Chocolate Mint rooibos is my absolute favourite, but due to their semi-sketchy ridiculous sale combined with USD the other month, I didn’t bother ordering and am now looking for a potential replacement. Will this hit the mark?

I can already tell by the smell in the pouch that it won’t be as flavourful. The mint isn’t as in-your-face. With some 2% milk it’s pretty decent. The base is more prevalent in this one, and although I’m normally not a fan of the taste of rooibos, it really isn’t too bad here. The chocolate, on the other hand, is akin to the note in Read My Lips, unsurprisingly, as this appears to contain the same chocolate chips used in that blend.

Overall, I’m not wild over it and am still eyeing Zen’s if I knew exactly what was going on with that company. I have a couple cups worth left so I should try mixing it with Tisano’s Mint Cacao next time to see if that can amp up the chocolate or mint.


They posted some blah blah blah in the forums after we all noticed and were posting about the USD fiasco.
