Another “deep cupboard find”.
I must admit…chocolate and mint in a tea just doesn’t do it for me. This is incredibly unusual because: a) love mint everything, and b) chocolate mint is like a food group to me. I love chocolate mint everything. Except, apparently, tea. I tried a rooibos chocolate mint tea and was equally underwhelmed. Next bag I’ll try steeping longer, but I think this will just be one of those “should have liked in theory, don’t like in actuality” things.
There’s nothing WRONG with the tea. It’s a bit chocolatey. It’s a bit minty. It’s a bit tea-y. But it doesn’t taste like I just bit into a PEP patty or an After Eight mint. I think that’s why I’m disappointed…and that’s irrational, since tea could never taste like that. So I have unattainable tea expectations. What else is new?!
Verdict: would not re-buy. Not because it’s not good. But because I expect too much and I have other bagged tea for emergencies that I like more. Would recommend as an inexpensive chocolate mint tea, however. If that’s your thing.
