Another Deb tea! I’m so excited for the subscription… (mini dance)
This one is basically the same as her Mint Chip Cookie, but on a black base instead of a rooibos one. And just like that blend, it’s a bit underwhelming to me.
I do enjoy the mint, and the combination of peppermint and spearmint is a nice idea because the freshness of the spearmint really peps it up and tempers the herbal note of the peppermint. But because it’s not all spearmint, it doesn’t taste like chewing gum.
I’m never a fan of actual chocolate in tea, because the murkiness and oily surface is very unappetizing to me. I’m also not getting a ton of chocolate flavor given that this has both chocolate and cacao nibs in it. There is definitely some, but I want moar! There’s a little hint of creaminess from the vanilla, which I appreciate. I don’t get coconut.
I saw a recommendation from VariaTEA somewhere to try Mint Chip Cookie as an iced latte for a mint chip ice cream sort of feel, so maybe I’ll have to try that with this tea. I’ve been basically having a latte every day since getting a new milk frother… XD
