This company reached out to me on instagram to see if I would be interested in trying some of their yaupon/tulsi teas and I said “yes please!”. I love tulsi so I was definitely intrigued there, but I was actually more intrigued by the idea of yaupon blends because I haven’t seen many of them out there (usually you just see straight yaupon) and, historically, I haven’t loved the ones I have tried…
I love to be challenged, though!
And you know what!? This was good! The ingredients list is pretty clean/simple and you can really tell that everything used here is very fresh and natural – and it comes through to the flavour, which has a strong crisp and cooling peppermint note that supports rich and indulgent cocoa flavours and that toasty but juussstt a little bit grassy flavour of yaupon.
While I do really love a good chocolate peppermint tea year round (and have actually explored a lot this year) I feel like this is particularly well timed for the holiday season and I like having the option to pull something fresh, rich and indulgent from my stash that fits the holiday mindset that also isn’t loaded up with sugar/sprinkles/chocolate the same way so many holiday teas often are. It feels like a “cleaner” way of indulging.
Big thumbs up on this blend – would definitely recommend!
