Open the package, stick your nose in, inhale, and you will think you’ve eaten dessert. The steeped brew is a bit more earthy than that – strongly minty with mild cacao, not at all sweet, which I love. I tried it with cream and sugar, which I specifically didn’t like; this tea doesn’t become more decadent when treated like a dessert tea… Well, not exactly. Feeling adventuresome, I steeped this tea in whole milk and added some homemade hot chocolate, and oh my word! Wow! I and all my guests enjoyed it the entire rainy night! I can’t keep enough on hand this winter! Perhaps a strange way to treat such good quality tea, but it’s a household favorite with all my teens!
