This infusion based in rooibos has the mellow notes of vanilla, the rich flavor of real chocolate chunks and the defining essence of mint. Rooibos is rich in antioxidants and helps with insomnia- so enjoy at bedtime or anytime. Try as a latte or iced with a splash of cream.

It’s late, I’m past my caffeine cut-off for the evening, and I’m feeling like something warm and sweet, so I think I’ll drink a cup of this. This is another Par Avion Tea that I was given as a gift last Christmas, and as I discovered with a little Nancy Drewing, all their teas are sourced from Tea Guys. This blend is Tea Guy’s Chocolate Mint Rooibos blend, which they have since renamed “Peppermint Chocolate Vanilla” and updated the blend slightly. The main differences to the blend are, other than all the preservatives they now put in all their teas (sea salt, citric acid), they now include cocoa powder and the yogurt has been swapped for vanilla. I have the original non-preservative-filled Chocolate Mint Rooibos version of the blend.

I love the scent of this tea, it smells like hard toffee candies wafting out of the cup to me. This is a very nice chocolate mint rooibos, the flavor is quite rich; you don’t really taste any of the rooibos base, and while I’m fine with rooibos, I think that’s a good thing in this case, because I tried a different chocolate mint rooibos in the past, Velvet Tea by Art of Tea, and the rooibos flavor was much more prevalent in that blend while the chocolate was more subtle, and it just didn’t really work for me with this particular flavor combo. This tea has a nice chocolate note that actually has this sort of creamy, caramel/toffee sort of note to it that is very pleasant. The mint comes out right at the finish of the sip and cools on the tongue, but it isn’t overbearing as peppermint can tend to be in these sort of teas.

This is a really nice dessert blend that really hits that sweet spot before bed.

Aroma: Divine. Strong chocolate & refreshing mint.

Flavour: ​MINT! mint in the foretaste, mint in the aftertaste, mint, mint, mint. Followed by creamy chocolate notes, which contains just a hint of honeyed rooibos.

Final Thoughts: Complete love this blend! If I had to list my top 10 this would definitely be in it.

This is definitely growing on me, looking back at my previous notes for this tea I’m in complete awe. I definitely used to not like this tea at all… I’m not sure what happened!

I still couldn’t taste the chocolate so much but I’ve come to terms with that and the other flavors do really speak for themselves. It’s very minty and after taking a sip I get the same cooling feeling as you do after brushing your teeth (but in a good way!) and there’s some vanilla notes that I overlooked in the past. I’m really enjoying this one.

Flavors: Cream, Mint, Vanilla
