I tried this hot. I enjoyed this blend! I love refreshing flavours, so peppermint and spearmint are definitely some of my favourite herbal tea blends. This smells very minty, with the slightest hint of chocolate.
I would say this tea tastes expensive and fresh. Obviously, I think that is because Deb does not use any artificial flavourings in her tea. I even took a bite of the chocolate pieces and the cacao nibs, and they tasted like organic, antioxidant-rich chocolates I would eat when I was on my health kick!
The mint is very strong in this one, which I love. I would say the chocolate is more so in the background as opposed to being a prominent note.
I also liked that the rooibos in this blend was in the background. In fact, it does not taste like rooibos at all! I would have never guessed it was in here (which I like, since I am not a huge fan of rooibos teas).
Although I enjoyed this tea, my one piece of constructive criticism would be that it needs more chocolate. Mint is a strong flavour, so I think adding additional chocolate would have amplified this tea so much more!
But overall, I liked it. It was simple and refreshing.
