7 tasting notes

Hmm…. so from looking at it, it looks mostly like peppermint tea, with some cute snowflakes and some chocolate pieces.

After steeping for 5 minutes, this is really quite strong. I’m tasting peppermint, a slight bitter aftertaste, and not much chocolate. I took a look at the tea satchet, and realized not much of the chocolate had actually melted…so I used the side of the spoon to squeeeeeze all that chocolate goodness into the tea cup. My next sip tasted a lot sweeter, and much more chocolatey. A huge improvement.

Problem with this tea is that it’s a bit tricky…you don’t want to oversteep it because the peppermint will get bitter, but if you don’t steep it long enough, the chocolate won’t melt. If you’re using a tea satchet, I recommend squeezing the chocolate out separately after brewing. If you’re using loose leaf, you could try to pick out the chocolate pieces, melt them, and put it in the tea. Although that’s a lot of effort for one cup of “nothing special” tea.
