One of the best rooibos blends I have tasted.

Very creative blend of tea! Right out off the bat, the tea bag smells deliciously chocolaty. It kinda smells like coca-puffs cereal. The tea steeps an amber brown. The peppermint flavor is stronger than chocolate, but both are pretty weak. My mouth is left feeling minty fresh with a tiny chocolaty after taste.
I’m liking this tea more and more. It has the full-body I was looking for in the evening. I added a little vanilla cream stevia and whoa… what a cup of tea. I also have some hazelnut stevia that I might try. Sometimes rooibos can be a bit whimpy but with the addition of the mint and chocolate it makes me happy. This is one I’m going to end up keeping in my cupboard – not for every night but this will fill a void in my evening teas. With the addition of the vanilla stevia I’m going to raise my rating a little, from 80-85.
I’ve had a couple of these recently, and have been reasonably impressed. The flavour is a bit variable, depending on the brew time and temparature, but it always yields a flavourful and enjoyable treat. The chocolate is the flavour that seems most susceptible to vanishing — I haven’t quite worked out what causes it yet, but I’m certain that it does. The first cup I tried tasted mostly of rooibos, and quite a brassy-tasting one at that. The second cup was altogether better, with both mint and chocolate in addition to the rooibos. When all of the flavours are identifiable, this does approach the flavour of a chocolate mint truffle — it’s something that comes together after a couple of sips, and forms an impression in the aftertaste if not the initial sip. This is another tea I’ll have to work on a little before I discover exactly what works best for me when it comes to brewing. I’m encouraged so far, though. A pleasant sweet treat when I’m trying to avoid reaching for a chocolate bar!
I actually bought a bulk purchase of sachets for holiday gifts. Appearance: blend of rooibos and mint leaves, with cacao nibs. Pleasant loose but better in sachets (rooibos has a tendency to slip through many mesh strainers). Liquor: traditional rooibos reddish-brown. Smell: okay, not as good as the taste. Taste: very smooth and surprisingly chocolate-y. The rooibos is a nice, soft base, and the mint is soothing. When I’m in the mood for this, it’s just delicious. 7/10.
Despite my like for chocolate and mint (and their combination), I remain unconvinced that they belong in tea. I don’t think I would enjoy this tea much on its own, but I managed to brew it just before pulling some girl scout thin mints out of the freezer, and I can’t imagine anything better to complement it. I added no milk or sugar, just ate the cookies as I drank.
