It’s a bit too late for black tea, but I don’t really care. This is sweet and minty. There is a little chocolate flavour, but not much.

I brewed up a pot of this last night while I watched the Grinch with my kitten on the couch by the lit tree :) It was a great accompaniment to the movie and reminded me of being a little kid because my dad used to make me peppermint tea. The little candy canes in the tea are adorable, I’m such a sucker for the teas that Della Terra puts sprinkles in (LOOOVE Winter Nog).

It’s like a typical herbal mint tea, obviously it has the caffeine of a black tea, but it isn’t bitter and I doubt the average person would taste a difference (I know that none of the Steepsterites are average people… we’re all crazy tea snobs).

The little candy canes redeem what is otherwise a basic black mint tea. Luckily I have a soft spot for mint tea.

I received a sample of this with an order I placed. Since I don’t usually enjoy peppermint, I would never have chosen it myself. With that said, I am pleasantly surprised at this delicious winter treat. The peppermint flavor is subtle, blended deliciously with cocoa. This is so yummy, it may replace hot cocoa for me. Need a little peppermint pick-me-up this morning.

I just received this from momo with a bunch of other teas she was selling off, thanks momo :) I’m enjoying them immensely. In fact two of them are completely gone already (I’m such a glutton).

I don’t normally like chocolate teas, but this one was absolutely perfect. It has a great balance between the chocolate and the mint while the vanilla flavor gives it a creamy sort of feel with each sip. The black tea is pretty mellow and totally hidden by the flavoring, but for this particular blend that doesn’t bother me.

I have to admit something, I really hate sprinkles in my tea. I’m not a tea purist by any means, but something about them seems a little odd to me. They rank up there with tea that sparkles… my tea shouldn’t do that either. All that being said, those mini candy cane sprinkles are just so darn cute.

It really is a shame this is a seasonal tea since I have so little of it.

I think I have to double the amount of tea I use, or maybe steep it longer. (this seems to be happening with all the teas I’ve tried recently, maybe it’s my stuffy sinuses messing with being able to taste things properly)

This morning, I used 1 tsp to make a cup, steeped it 3 minutes. I barely could taste anything, it kind of tasted like water with a tiny hint of mint and no chocolate flavor. This did shock me a bit, since upon opening the pack I could smell both, the chocolate more so than the mint, but both were there and smelled wonderful.

I’m not going to rate it until I make another cup.

Very nice peppermint flavor. I’ve steeped this hot and cold. When brewing it hot, the peppermint scent is lovely. When steeping cold, the peppermint flavor is fantastic…a great aftertaste and the perfect way to relax on a hot summer day.
