I love chocolate, can just manage mint and absolutely loathe the two flavours together – so I was really bracing myself for this one. The smell is deceptively rich, you get a perfect mix of both chocolate and mint and it was like burying my nose in a box of after-dinner mints. Fancy after-dinner mints mind, not those crappy chocolate mint biscuits Arnotts put out.
Unfortunately, the peppermint completely overwhelms all the other flavours. I couldn’t pick out the tea base, let alone the chocolate. This made for a very strange cup…
