I was looking for something that recreated the feeling of having an After Eight in a cup, as I did with Snow Day from David’s Tea. However, Snow Day contains actual white chocolate chips, and since I am trying to decrease my sugar consumption, I was hoping for a reasonable substitute from TWG given my love for their Chocolate Earl Grey.
Although the tea smelled deliciously minty, the scent did not translate into its taste. Both the mint and the chocolate flavours were weak to me, despite varying my steep time. The tea guide at TWG recommended that I steep fro 5-7 minutes, and nothing in that timeframe made a huge difference to the flavour.I had it without milk or sugar. I much prefer Snow Day over this.
