Yum! I love flavored black teas, and this is delicious. Freshly steeped, I found peppermint to be most prominent in both scent and taste; but a packet of truvia (one packet for my 16 oz. mug) brought the chocolate out nicely. A great dessert tea.

If you are a fan of minty chocolate, especially when combined together in a candy then this tea is for you. With real peppermint and chocolate pieces along with mint brittle you will be left with a minty, refreshing and chocolaty treat in your cup. A true breath, errr, drink of fresh air… I mean tea!

Sample from Ost. Thank you!
Opening this bag, I was hit by the delicious smell of chocolate. It made me really hope that this was a tea that lived up to its smell. I threw in the whole sample (about a teaspoon) and brewed it in about 4 oz of water. This tastes sooooo good. The mint hits my mouth first, followed closely by the taste of chocolate. It’s a tiny bit artificial, but not unpleasantly so – it makes it taste more like highly processed candy or hot chocolate. I’m definitely going to need to look into more of Della Terra’s chocolate teas, since while I tend to prefer the taste of dark chocolate these days, I do sometimes still crave milk chocolate for the creaminess. This delivers on the creamy milk chocolate taste without all the sugar. I am a fan!
In other news, had a fun weekend at my in-laws. Ran the first session of the tabletop roleplaying game I’ve been working on for the past couple of years. I tried to get it started last spring, but everyone else was really busy, so it had to wait. It was fun to finally be able to play. My players seemed to enjoy it too. And it inspired me to get cracking on future encounters.
Ended up being snowed in on Monday night, so stayed an extra day. Tuesday was Car Lord’s first real experience with snow. He didn’t seem to really know what to make of it, although he did enjoy the sledding. All in all, a long and eventful weekend, and now I need to catch up on dishes and laundry, but can get back to trying new tea : )

Lame. I hadn’t even opened this one. This like, 2-year old tea sample. Haha. Anyhow, someone’s post on the rooibos version (which I believe I acquired from a swap with Janelle last year, but didn’t really put the effort into finding) made me want to try this, so I dug it out. It’s a fairly decent minty/vanilla/black. Wouldn’t be a favourite, but nice enough to drink, especially this time of year. I particularly tasted the chocolate yesterday, but DTT’s chocolate flavouring seems to be inconsistent even between different infusions of the same tea, so… maybe that will be the case next time, maybe not. Either way, yums.
Thanks again for the sale, Momo! I could always use peppermint teas for my headaches. I like this one, but I feel like the flavor seems watered down. Mild mint, mild chocolate, mild black tea. Always a nice combination but it’s just not STRONG enough for me… maybe if I used two teaspoons? It’s minty for my headache though, so it helps! It seems like winter has arrived way too early… so many gray days already and it’s only the beginning of December. sigh.
Steep #1 // 1 tsp // couple minutes after boiling // few min steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // few min steep
I love how this tea tastes like a delightful, fresh, minty tea, but has the chocolate flavor that gives it a sense of comforting sweetness.
My husband and I drank two pots of this tea in a row, and probably could have gone for a third… mint is one of his favorites, and the chocolate made this all the more delightful for us both!

Bought this in…Someone’s stash sale. xD Blanking out on the username-haha!
DTT tends to make pretty good chocolate teas in my book, so I figured I’d give this one a shot!
Wasn’t sure if I’d like this since I haven’t seemed to like mint teas lately. But this one is actually pretty good! The mint doesn’t outweigh the chocolate too much.
But I think the best mint tea that I’ve tried so far is DavidsTea’s Read My Lips. This one is good, but wouldn’t buy more!

Another tea made with the unidentified-temperature office water. This one tasted about like I remember, so the water is at least hot enough to make semi-decent black tea. The tea was definitely a bit weaker than normal, but the chocolate and mint flavors almost came through better because of it. I’m definitely going to bring a thermometer with me tomorrow to test out the water temperature. I would love to be able to drink tea all day at work, but knowing what I should and shouldn’t bring will be very helpful.
