Bought this as an extra dessert tea as I was getting tired of Masala Chai every single night. Tastes very natural considering it uses flavoring. It is what it claims-cacao and mint in black tea. The flavors are very well-balanced. Normally, I drink it straight, but it does taste better with a teaspoon of sugar. I love to dip a mint chocolate oreo into this tea-delicious.
Good stuff. Still, not a tea that I would always have around. I’m sure that I will buy it again someday-but probably not right when I run out.

I definitely taste the mint in this tea. Having said that, I think the mint is an extract. It has a funny almost medicinal flavor. I smell the cocoa more than taste it. It’s there just not in the same strength as the mint. Not a bad tea but I like my Moroccan Mint much better.

Raiding another friend’s tea stash is the greatest. Courtesy of my close friend Maria, I’ve been going through quite a few Teavana teas. My stomach was giving me some issues, so I’ve been sticking to simple teas with mint and ginger in – no sugar or milk.

I love the smell of this tea. It’s a nice, cool rich scent. Brews to a fairly neutral brown. The peppermint does its thing and rises up with the steam while it’s steeping.

I don’t get a ton of chocolate notes in the taste, although it still smells chocolate/minty in the cup. Still a great tea. I could easily work this into my rotation.

I ordered 2 ounces of this blend the other day (after drinking some at my boyfriend’s house.) I then drank those two ounces within a week. Cacao Mint became my breakfast, afternoon, and after-dinner tea. I normally hate tea with any sort of strong chocolate note. I’ve already ordered a bit more!

The mint is delightfully cool & refreshing. The chocolate is smooth and delicate. Unfortunately, the tea base itself is weak. I could never steep this a second time without it being completely watery and weak. I tried and the color was just off, and it tasted like hot water with a little bit of mint and no cocoa. I was rather disappointed by that, but would just add fresh tea and drink some more. That’s PROBABLY why I went through 2 ounces so quickly.

I’m sensitive to wheat/gluten, and this tea gives me my chocolate-mint fix … seeing as I’ve been so deprived of my favorite Thin Mint cookies these past few years! :D

So the description calls this a ‘Dinner Tea’ which is not an opinion I share AT ALL. For me, this is a breakfast tea.

Today I made this before I headed out the door to meet a friend for some shopping. I brewed it in my ‘Perfect Tea Maker’ infuser and kept it in my travel mug for the day. It took me several delicious hours to drink my CM, but I have learned something that I didn’t really think about before.

One: Do not, and I really do repeat this, DO NOT drink this lovely, piping hot cuppa with your food that you got from the food court. Because as delicious as this tea is, it does not do a good job of washing down the spicy potatoes from the Manchu Wok at the mall’s food court.

When I first drank it this morning, I tasted a lot of the mint. But the aroma of the chocolate gave the tea the cocoa undertones. It was so smooth and yummy. I sweetened it with rock sugar and really tasted that great chocolate flavor after I got to the bottom of the cup. Its a comfort tea and a great one to start your day with.

Just…maybe not if you are going to eat spicy food.

Is there a need to brush your teeth after this tea?? I still love how the black tea hits the palate first and then hello minty freshness…..I like this tea more daily.

This is a really interesting tea for me. The mint is the star of the show. The chocolate is more of an undertone than a starring flavor. As this tea first hits your tongue you get the chocolate and the smooth tea flavor, then the mint flavor builds and as you swallow it leaves a tingle on your tongue. This is a great black tea by itself and perfect for blending. The tingling mint always leaves me longing for more.

I love the scent of this tea, both the looseleaf and the liquor. I’ve noticed that after steeping it, the lid to my infuser mug carries a slight scent of bourbon. As far as the drinking experience goes, it delivers exactly the flavor I expect: minty, smooth cacao. It is full bodied while in the mouth, but has a quick, light, minty finish. It makes a great after-dinner tea. I don’t sweeten mine at all, and it still seems dessert-like. I use only 1 teaspoon of tea to 6 ounces of water, and steep for about 1 – 1.5 minutes. It is a pleasant experience, worth trying.

Sooooooo delicious. Lovely mint aftertaste. Great with steamed milk (I’m lazy and just used it straight out of the jug).

The name says it all – cacao and mint black tea. Really – it’s hard getting a tea like that wrong.

I’m a bit surprised there is no roiboos in the tea, it taste a bit like it. But I have looked at the ingredient list and looked at the tea itself and there is none.

So do I have a conclusion on this tea? So………. thinking not so hard, really

Not something I will purchase again, because there is probably a lot of other great chocolaty teas out there. In this tea, the mint taste is taking over the chocolate one. I will drink up the batch I bought, but it ends there.
