3 Tasting Notes View all

From Petali Teas

Of all the mint chocolate teas we’ve tasted, this one is at the top. This is a dessert tea for pure tea lovers. The mint is gentle and the chocolate is natural. Think rich dark chocolate rather than sweet milk chocolate. Simply delicious.

Hot tea has been neglected as of late because I’ve been outside enjoying the lovely weather, and additionally, I’ve been… gasp … drinking coffee instead these past few days.

From the Amoda BF order comes this chocolate mint tea. I can really taste those cocoa nibs in here. It’s not as bold as the peppermint, but I love how it’s cocoa nibs and not some weird artificial flavour, or waxy chocolate that melts and leaves a scum ring. And that they added enough of said cocoa nibs so you can actually taste them.

But yes, the peppermint is still the strongest note here, and the base is on the weaker side, which isn’t a bad thing at all. I still wish there were a little more of something in here. Something to give it more body, as it’s a little thin.

With whole milk, this reminds me of when my Grandma would make me hot cocoa, and she’d always make it with Fry’s cocoa, sugar, and usually half and half. The cocoa nib and whole milk combination mimics that rich Fry’s cocoa flavour. She’s now in senior housing so no more can I visit her over a pot of hot cocoa, and yes, sometimes she made it in her teapot so we’d all have an abundant supply of liquid chocolate. Beats that hot chocolate mix, for sure. This also beats mint hot chocolate mix, and the Harney Chocolate Mint I tried the other day, but it still has a lot to learn from some other chocolate mint teas.

Beautiful memory. Sounds like the perfect time to make and bring her the same kind of cocoa ready-made.

She hasn’t been into hot cocoa these days but green tea instead, so whenever she visits I make her some tea at least. :)

Backlog:

I really LOVED the holiday tasting box that I received from Amoda Tea. This wasn’t part of the monthly subscription and it’s still available here: http://amodatea.com/collections/the-tasting-boxes/products/holiday-box

The teas in that box are yum!

This tea had a very crisp, minty flavor. It has a bit more mint than chocolate and you know me, I’d be happier if it were the other way around. That said, this is still a really good tea. The black tea base is a solid, robust black tea. It’s nicely round and complements the mint and chocolate notes favorably. It’s a deep, rich, dark chocolate flavor and I like how it goes with the cool mint.

Very yum!
