Thanks Laurent for this free sample with my last order. I am not a huge rooibos fan, but I am glad Laurent added some rooibos samples to my last order, because I am enjoying them.

This tea smells of rooibos and also of strong sweet mint. Mostly spearmint smelling. The hot tea tastes of light, smooth, sweet rooibos and strong mint. Seems to be a mix of pepper- and spear- mint tasting. Underneath the mint, there is an unsweetened cocoa taste. The rooibos seems to give the tea some sweetness. I do not normally like chocolate teas, but this one seems to be well done. It has a chocolate taste to it but is not trying to mimic chocolate. Like I have found with some of Nina’s other rooibos teas, the taste seems best after it cools a bit, but before it becomes luke-warm.

Aroma: Minty roobios
Liquor Color: Reddish brown
Liquor Flavor: Minty roobios
Notes: I don’t really like roobios, and this one tasted a lot like it with some mint thrown in. The mint was pretty gently in comparison to the smell. Meh.

thank you VariaTEA (and Nina’s Paris) for letting me try this one. Sadly, this one falls a little short of expectations because i largely get a sense of creamy rooibos from this one. If i squint and think really hard, i can taste the mint ish…so maybe this one just needs to steep a lot more. or be overleafed :) Either way it’s not a bad tea because i like the roibos that Nina’s uses, so i’m ok with it but i prefer others that they have more.

VariaTEA

I got a lot of mint and cacao. I wonder how much leaf was in the cup they made me compared to the sample they gave.

Thank you Laurent, Sophie, and everyone else at Nina’s Paris for making my mother and I feel so welcome and at home!!

Before I talk about the tea, I would just like to say that I had yet another amazing experience at Nina’s Paris offices. I was made three different cups of tea (Pour Maman, The Sur La Lune, and this one) and I walked out with a whole box of delicious teas. I mean, when I walked in i had 91 and now I am back up to 115 and I cannot be happier because Nina’s teas are AMAZING!!

Many of you know I am neither a cacao fan nor a lover of chocolate mint so this is one of the last teas I would have ever asked to try. However, before I even knew what was happening, a mug of this was placed in front of me and since they went to the trouble of making it, I figured I should at least have a sip. I am glad I did because this was actually a really good tea. The cacao gave it a nice, smooth chocolate flavor, and the mint was mellow but refreshing. I was actually shocked at how enjoyable it was and ended up guzzling it down quite quickly.

__Morgana__

Wow… What all did you get?

OMGsrsly

Try ALL the teas!!! :)

VariaTEA

Haha. I think after I try everything I got today, I will have sampled almost all the teas Nina has to offer :P.

And Morgana, I got so many: Eve, Cancer, Taurus, The Sur La Lune, Pour Maman, Demain, Miz, Marie-Antoinette, Mon Secret, Ma Passion, Pisces, Aquarius, Magicienne, Darjeeling, Tigre Blanc, The de Noel, and so many more. Plus lots, and LOTS of Japon of course :P

Fjellrev

Yay, good haul! I’m glad you had such an awesome experience.

OMGsrsly

Taurus! I’m so curious about that one. :) Looking forward to all your notes!

VariaTEA

OMGsrsly, I have 100g of it so I can always send you a sample :)

__Morgana__

That’s only 17… what are the other 7? LOL

OMGsrsly

We could do that. I already have a couple set aside for you. :) Sil and MissB are the hard ones to shop for!

VariaTEA

Haha. Sorry. I also got Darjeeling, Balade a Shanghai, Versailles Rose, Rouge, 4 Fruits Rouges, The de Vendome, Under the Mango Tree (which is a tea they sell in Japan), Scorpio, Earl Grey, Je T’aime, Virgo, and Jasmin

VariaTEA

I think that is everything. Oh, and they gave me a cup and saucer as a birthday present and since my mom doesn’t drink tea, she got some jelly and some of their beautiful soaps.

__Morgana__

That sounds wonderful. Looking forward to reading your notes about them.

VariaTEA

And OMGsrsly, they definitely are because they basically either own or have already tried every tea on Earth (though I don’t think either have had many Cornelia Bean teas so perhaps we should place an order so we have what to send them :P).

OMGsrsly

Awesome idea! :D I totally have a list. I should send it to you. FB OK?

VariaTEA

Yeah. FB works.

Kat_Maria

This sounds like a wonderful time! And so many teas :O I wish Nina’s Paris had a proper website where one can order online :(

VariaTEA

Kat_Maria, being in the states, Amazon isn’t a horrible option or you can email them directly as they have amazing customer service. However, I wish they had a site too as it is so awesome to just shop online.

Suziqzer

Sounds like a great experience! Who would think a tea shop to make you custom samples to try… For free!?!? Now that’s service!

Sil

VT – did you buy this one or just drink it there?

Kamyria

This sounds amazing! I wish there were shops like that around where I live

VariaTEA

@Suziqzer – They are an amazing company. I have dealt with such excellent customer service before.

@Sil – This was one I had there and I have a one cup sample if you want to try it. I enjoyed the cup I had but I just don’t reach for Mint Chocolate (except for Butiki’s Peppermint Patty) enough to warrant buying it.

Sil

i was going to ask how you saw it compared against stacy’s herbal mint chocolate heh

VariaTEA

I think Peppermint Patty is on a whole other level when it comes to Mint Chocolate teas. In fact, I just stocked up on it which is another reason I did not get more of this one.

I would say this had more of a cacao sort of dark chocolate flavor whereas the Butiki is more milk chocolate to me. Also, the mint is stronger (though not harsh or overpowering like in some teas I have tried) in this as I find the marshmallow leaf tones down the mint a lot in Peppermint Patty.

Sil

hmmmmm on the list it goes to try haha

VariaTEA

I will send you the sample they gave me. It is only enough for one cup which means an easy sipdown :)

Suziqzer

Sounds like one I might have to try. I’ll have to look for it on Amazon when I have some gift cards to spend there :)
