Had this in a tea bag which was not ideal, but the SpecialTeas pyramid tea bags are actually very nice. They’re nice and roomy for the leaves to float and they’re strong enough to hold their shape when in the water so they don’t suffocate the leaves. The leaves smell like those chocolate mints you get from restaurants, really interesting and tasty. None of the tones are very strong, just subtle and delicate. The mint is persistent and offers a refreshing splash with each sip. Following that is a light and faintly sweet malty chocolate flavor that balances the sharpness of the mint. Nice tea, especailly because I am not necessarily the biggest fan of rooibos teas.
South African Rooibos with chocolate bits and peppermint leaves. Great for when you need chocolate decadence with an uplifting touch of mint. Refeshing character that can satisfy a sweet tooth! If you enjoy “After-Eight” or “Andes” mints, you will love this tea!
