Peppermint sings her heart out, and then chocolate comes onstage at the end and does a little rap. I enjoy mint and it was refreshing, but like any crazed chocolate fan, I would have loved a little more of it. Glad I got to try this one, thanks to yappychappy.

More chocolate, please! This is a good peppermint tea, but I was struggling to find the chocolate-y goodness it promised. Maybe next time I’ll melt an Andies mint into it or add some hot chocolate mix! More to come on my experiments…

This was a free sample from Della Terra. Not one I would have bought for myself as i’ve determined that chocolate and mint is not my favorite combination. I love mint, just not with chocolate (in tea that is). I figured I would try it anyway, since I had it.

Tastes about the same as other mint-chocolate blends that I have had. Well balanced flavor, no funky aftertaste like I get from many chocolate teas. If I had no other choices but chocolate blend teas, I would choose mint. But since I do have a choice, I’ll take my mint with a black tea and nothing more :)

Stargate sipdown! This smells really nice and minty. The flavour reminds me of those mint chocolates that come out in Winter time, but not as strong.

Thanks yappychappy for sending me this.

I’m actually nearly through my sample of this, and I haven’t yet managed to log it! Dry, it smells almost exactly like a box of After Eights just after opening; dark chocolate and mint in equal measure. It’s rich and ever so slightly bittersweet. I can see chopped mint leaves and chocolate chips among the black tea base, so it’s the real deal as far as flavouring goes.

To taste, this really lives up to its scent. The chocolate comes through first , darkly bittersweet and slightly creamy, swiftly followed by the cool sweetness of the mint. They combine beautifully in the aftertaste, to perfect effect. This is the kind of tea I could happily drink all day. The black base is unobtrusive, but it adds a slightly malty depth and helps the flavours to really shine. This is one I’ll definitely consider repurchasing in the future. As chocolate mint black teas go, it’s among the best I’ve tried so far. Tasty, refreshing, and moreish; in this heat, there isn’t much more I could want in a tea!

I have a package of Thin Mints that I’ve been trying really hard not to eat (I want to make ice cream out of them) so I decided that Swiss Mountain might be a good substitute since I was craving chocolate last night. This reminds me a lot of Dubbele Chocolade only with peppermint added and I wasn’t the biggest fan of it either. I think the problem isn’t with the tea itself, but that I just don’t like chocolate teas, I have yet to come across one that has just wowed me. The wet tea leaves smell a lot like a york peppermint patty, I just wish the tea had tasted more like one.

One of my favorite teas. The mint and chocolate go together perfectly and has no “fake” chocolate taste. I always keep this one on full supply.

As others have mentioned, this tea is a definite reminder of mint chocolate confectionary, such as After Eights. It smelt incredibly chocolatey in the bag, but the mint comes out as soon as it starts steeping.

You can definitely taste the mint in the tea, but the chocolate wasn’t as prominent throughout. This may be because there wasn’t a good ratio of chocolate drops in my cup as they’d all sunk to the bottom of the bag, but a bit of sugar may also help bring it out as mentioned elsewhere.

Overall it’s quite refreshing. I like the peppermint flavour, it’s got exactly the right amount of sweetness in it. I’m sure this is going to be a great tea for dessert as soon as I get the right balance.

I love mint chocolate but I haven’t found the perfect mint chocolate tea yet. Lately I’ve been adding mint teas to H&S Florence and enjoying the mix, but I would like to find one that doesn’t require the diy method. This one smelled promising in the bag – I can smell lots of mint and lots of chocolate. After brewing, the scent in the cup was not as appetizing, it smells more like dry, stale chocolate. No mint at all. Taking my first sip I was surprised to find it tasted minty, and not very chocolatey at all. What a paradox. If I closed my nose, this could easily be an oversteeped herbal peppermint tea. Minty, slightly bitter, with the peppermint lingering on my tongue after. There is a sort of deep undertone to it, but nothing that says chocolate.

I added a bit of brown sugar because the reviews mentioned a little sweetener helps bring out the chocolate flavor, and it totally changed the tea. Now the thick, heavy, sort of malty undertones are prominent, and I don’t taste the mint at all. I still get a bit of a tingle on my tongue after each sip, but it doesn’t taste minty. Or chocolatey.

I think I’m going to play around a little with steeping times and see if that helps. This tea has so much potential!

My fiance really enjoyed this tea. He takes it iced to work. Here’s what he had to say: “tastes like thin mints!”

That’s all he had to say about that.
