I had this one again and i just can’t seem to figure the chamomille out. It doesn’t add much, and just gets into my brew basket. Ah well, happy to have tried another steep city tea!

We know you have tried those mint chocolates they give you at restaurants after a meal, this tea is for those that like and don’t like them. Confused? Even if you don’t like those chocolates, you will LOVE this tea. We have sampled it across Miami through our tea tasting events. A strong, heady black tea that is rich and bold with chocolate flavors and refreshing at the same time because of the mint. We added some chamomile to the blend for the soft, relaxing chamomile flavor that is easily complemented by actual chocolate pieces and mint leaves. A new favorite for you.

I’m still the only person who’s left a tasting note for this tea? Travesty. Well, I gave a lot of it up to a swap so there will be at least a couple more people who have tried this on Steepster pretty soon. As soon as it makes it’s way through Canadian Customs and such anyway.
I see I noted last time that this tea is pretty mild at 3 minutes, and that’s still true for this pot. I think I got more chamomile in this pot of tea though because that’s coming through a bit stronger. Not enough to overwhelm anything but definitely enough to give some strength to it’s presence. All in all, can’t complain.
Thanks to Sil for yet another interesting tea! I was intrigued by the chamomile in this blend – seemed like a weird add-on to a mint chocolate blend, but I went with it (and used my metal infuser as a chamomile precaution!). Dry and steeped, it mostly smells like mint chocolate, as expected. The first infusion I had in my travel mug, and it was fairly decent – I could taste some chocolate, a bit of mint (along the lines of peppermint leaf, I think), and a touch of chamomile, which overall just made it taste a bit different from the usual mint chocolate blends. Not necessarily better or worse, just different. And of course, the cup was kind of murky due to the melted chips (yum!)
Second infusion: I assumed most of the chocolate would be gone, but apparently I was very wrong – it’s even murkier, and tastes even more cocoa-y. The chamomile is more apparent as well, and the mint is a bit lessened – more like chamomile chocolate (which reminds me of Verdant’s Chocolate Chamomile Curiousity Brew, not that it tastes like that as cinnamon was a prominent flavour there).
I’ll try another infusion but I don’t expect much. The only complaint I have here is that it would be great if the base tea was a bit richer and more obvious – I don’t believe I even detected it through the cocoa/chips/mint/chamomile. However, I don’t think I’ll have too many problems finishing this tea up in the next little while, as it’s quite perfectly seasonal right now.
