M Mack sent a bag of this along with some teas I bought. Thanks so much! It was a delight to find as I didn’t know it existed! I wasn’t expecting much though, as the ingredients list some odd things that I wouldn’t think would add up to a Thin Mint (licorice, chicory, rose hips?!?!) but the result is actually quite delicious. I’d say it is pretty spot on to those delicious cookies. I’m very happy none of those previous mentioned ingredients seemed to be present. ick. Somehow the brew is even the color of a Thin Mint despite being a caffeine free tea and not a black tea. I would say there is more mint flavor than chocolate flavor but it’s shocking how close the flavor is to the cookie here. I’d buy this one.
