I was in the mood for something sweet, and my husband was nursing a stomach ache. I thought this tea would fit both of our needs and then some! Rooibos and mint for the tum, chocolate and fruit chunks for the sweet. We both enjoyed it very much!
Enjoyed this as our dessert tonight, made in the Divine Decadence fashion (squirt of agave, squirt of chocolate syrup, splash of milk). Sooooo yummy and rich. I love the hint of mint with the chocolate.
I am very close to being finished this tisane, but luckily my local tea shop has a version of it (it could be the same with the way I’ve learned many tea companies do their business!). I will definitely pick some up because this is an absolute fave when I don’t want caffeine, but want something special.
I decided to use my Concoction of Divine Decadence on this tisane last night:
Squeeze of agave, squeeze of chocolate syrup in a cup, prepare and pour tisane into cup, top with splash of half and half…
I was a little nervous because of the mint, but there was nothing to be worried about. Think of chocolate chip mint ice cream! Think of thin mint girl scout cookies! and you will get the gist of this treat.
I love discovering new ways to enjoy things in my cupboard!
Last night’s chocolate bar was the very elegant Hershey’s Golden Almond. My first instinct was to pair it with one of my vanilla teas, but I didn’t want caffeine. I then thought of this tisane! I was unsure about the mint component with almonds, but it worked really well. The mint doesn’t hit you over the head in this one. Very nice chocolate and vanilla notes too, and a great richness. I have to keep this one in mind for future chocolate eating!!! I loved the combo!
This one is particularly delicious tonight – lots of vanilla flavor. The chocolate and mint are playing backup. Relaxing…mmmmmmm.
YUM! I had this with a little agave nectar and it was so good. I have a theory that honey overwhelms chocolate notes in teas, and was very curious to try this one a little sweetened but not with honey. Yep – it had more chocolate flavor with an alternative sweetener. Now I want to try all of my chocolatey tisanes with it!
Made this last night with chocolate syrup/agave nectar/half and half and it was such a treat! The mint adds a special something that I really enjoy. Perfect weeknight dessert! Amazingly satisfying.
It was deja vu all over again! More Hershey’s chocolate and this tea last night. The tea was just as rich and enjoyable.
