[Please note: I recently lived on this tea for a weekend so my review is not happening live, but post-taste.]
1) IIRC the lovely team at Teavana cafes steep this for 4 minutes in the cup. I drank it lightly sweetened with their Perfectea syrup (though I’m not sure of how much was added). I am guessing the measure is 2 tbsp/4 tsp to that 12 oz cup but I could be wrong.
2) Upon first taste, you aren’t overwhelmed by the peppermint, but it’s definitely the first thing you taste. It didn’t even taste like a rooibos at first – but a desser peppermint tea.
3) The redness of the rooibos comes through on the second taste. At this point I don’t taste a ton of white chocolate but that’s okay since white chocolate isn’t really chocolate at all. I love the fullness and sweetness of this tea. They could call it peppermint rooibos and I’d be okay with that.
4) In short, I need to add this tea to my home cupboard (especially since I don’t live next to a Teavana like I was last week). If you’ve never had rooibos, this wouldn’t be my first recommendation, but it would be if you’re a fan of sweeter dessert teas or rooibos teas in general. Try it, you’ll like it.

Perfect desert tea on a cool winter’s night! Love it warm on it’s own. Mixed it with a a few straight black teas and mixed it with Teavana’s Cocoa mint – love it still! Stocked up since it is seasonal! Very soothing peppermint aftertaste, even when it cools off.

My mom got a bunch of holiday teas from Teavana for Christmas, and she shared some of this one with me and my little bro last night. I am wary of teavana blends because I think they focus too much on the flavoring, rather than the quality of the base tea. This tea confirmed that, but the flavoring was nicely balanced. A little creamy, a little peppermint and not too much of either, but the tea was a bit watery, probably due to not enough Rooibos to back it up. I still like Lupicia rooibos the best. I felt a bit bad to have taken the cup of this last night because my mom decided not to make another for herself, and I didn’t love it. She does have the whole rest of the bag to enjoy though. It seemed like my bro liked it. :)

This is the third tea that I tried from Teavana and my first Rooibos. I added an extra teaspoon of tea and the usual one and a half teaspoons of sugar before pouring my tea in my mug. The smell and taste is peppermint with a hint of chocolate. The peppermint does overcome the chocolate taste but you can still taste that hint of chocolate in the background. I really enjoyed this and didn’t think I would!

I love this tea! I’m so glad my local Teavana was sampling this tea because it has become my go-to evening tea. It is the perfect combination of chocolate and peppermint and helps to satisfy my evening chocolate cravings. Perfect for a cold winter night, it’s wonderful that this rich, flavorful tea is also caffeine-free!

I’ve been so stuck on Spiced Apple Cider, that I completely ignored the fact that this was in my cupboard; but since the weather has recently turned cold, I thought I’d take this out. This is last year’s batch and I’ve never even tried it (bad tea drinker/buyer)! Anyway, it’s a nice mix of chocolate and peppermint (with a little sweetener added). And it reminds me of a rooibos version of read my lips. Skinny Peppermint Mocha Lattes are my favorite drinks during the season and this is a nice tea version! Should have cracked it out sooner!

I’m a little embarrassed to mention how much of this I managed to stock, but the 2oz bag is pretty paltry so I don’t think I’ll have any issues finishing… though maybe not in time for the next Heavenly sale…

Delicious!! Being new to tea, I tried this blend with little hopes of enjoying it, so I was taken aback when it swept me off into a comforting, delightful experience. Lovely for winter!

A dessert wine tea
Shimmering on the surface
Sweeter when less sweet

I feel like this is the tea version of a dessert wine. It is very sweet complimented by a nice peppermint. I am not a huge fan of licorice, but even though I taste it, I think it does a good job of blending the flavors together. I’m a little off-put by the oily sheen on top of the tea, though, and it’s overly sweet for me. The second steeping was more to my taste; less emphasis on the artificial sweet flavor.

Overall this is a good quality tea and is works well for curving cravings for sweets. The chocolate tastes artificial and when I was drinking it, I could taste and feel the wax from the chocolate.

This is only the second loose-leaf tea that I have ever bought and the first in multiple years.

Leaves: A mixture of small and medium sized pieces, no full leaves. The blend’s scent has a note of chocolate and coffee, but once it was brewed the peppermint took control.

The liquor/infusion is a deep reddish-brown. The brewed tea looks a but oily, especially the longer it sits.

Head Notes: Sweet, gentle, smooth
Body Notes: Tastes like artificial chocolate, nice dessert flavor, peppermint undertone.
Tail Notes: The aftertaste is a dull peppermint with a slight hint of chocolate.

The tea has a creamy coating, after drinking the tea my mouth felt slightly dry, but also refreshed.

I should note that the strong, sweet smell and taste gave me a headache and made me nauseas. I do not plan on drinking this tea again, but I think that others will really enjoy it.
