This tea smells terrific as a dry mix. When you brew it, you smell mostly peppermint and the cocoa and white chocolate seems to be overpowered. Once I tasted it, I was disappointed in that there was so much mint that it was like toothpaste, but unlike toothpaste, there was a bitter aftertaste . I’m really starting to think that I don’t care much for flavoured teas, although I’ve always enjoyed authentic natural mint teas from time to time. This was is something I’d save for when I have a cold perhaps, as maybe it would improve with honey added. I’m sad I bought this now, as I think I’d prefer just plain spearmint leaves from the health food store, mixed with hot chocolate powder added after steeping. This one did not live up to its smell.
