Chocolate mint was one of my first teas from the Tea Haus, and is one of my favourite flavours to have in tea. I haven’t had this one in two years, though, and my chocolate mint cravings have been met for the last while with Read My Lips from David’s Tea. Lately I’ve been curious about how this one would compare to RML, and so when we roadtripped up recently to the store I got a small package to re-try.
Sipped black, the mint definitely dominates in this tea. I got only a slight chocolate note, but it was still nice. I knew that I used to drink this one with milk and sugar, so I added some sweetener, and curiously it only heightened the mint. I still couldn’t find the richer chocolate notes I remembered. Determined not to give up, I added a little milk.
AHA! There was my chocolate! With milk and sugar, this tea became the most delicious combination of mint and chocolate and finally rivalled my RML. I’m going to have to do a side my side next time to figure out which I like better and will remain a constant in my cupboard.
