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.

I love chocolate and I love mint… and yes I love them together. Although I like this tea I don’t love it as much as I would have thought. My only guess is that it is the rooibos. There is a “dirty” flavor to this tea that I did not like. I added a teaspoon of candy cane ice cream and it made a yummy latte. The ice cream also helped diminish the woodsy flavor. I would not buy this again.
Didn’t like this one the first time I tried it, but after hearing a friend rave about it being her favourite, I thought I’d give it another chance. Well, what do you know. It’s actually pretty good. Not as chocolatey as I’d prefer, but my sweet tooth needed a root canal after it rotted away from all the sugar I was eating. This is to say, my bar for “chocolatey enough” is set pretty high. Anyway. It’s not one of my go-to’s, but if somebody was like, “Here, I made you a cup of tea” and handed me this, I wouldn’t be sad about it.
I made this as a latte for a late night dessert tea, and after stirring in the milk and licking the spoon, my first reaction was “oh my god!” It tasted so good. A little more minty than chocolatey. Very good – can’t wait to try and compare to “cocomint cream”.
I enjoy chocolate and mint, so was predisposed to like this tea. The dry smell is fabulous. I tried it first with a 4 min steep. The taste was quite light, with a very watery minty chocolate taste. I continued to steep it for an additional 3 min, and it really improved, without getting a woody rooibos taste to it. A touch of agave, and it was good.
Okay. What’s not to love about this tea? Unless you hate mint chocolate (and I rank this personality defect up there with hating puppies), you will melt over this dessert tea. It reminds me of liquid chocolate mint Girl Guide cookies in a cup. Delicious!!!
(Oh and for all the mint-choco-haters out there, I’m just kidding… I luv yas, you misguided fools)
Went in hoping I’d find a caffeine-free tea similar to Read My Lips, and this is pretty much exactly what I hoped. It’s got a nice, robust flavor that makes it nice to drink at bedtime without worries over the caffeine content of black tea. I find the mint overpowers the chocolate, though.
