I actually just ran out of this tea, after getting it for Christmas along with a 1 oz. bag of Green Tropical. Like Suziqzer I was too late to find it from the store online, which is too bad because this is a tea I really enjoyed. I’ve never had a chocolate tea before, so I’m not completely sure how it should taste, but this tea seemed just right, with the perfect amount of peppermint. Right out of the bag I was immediately impressed by its fragrant smell. The tea took on a slightly different tone after the first brewing, but it was one I still completely enjoyed. A great peppermint tea, and if you add sugar, a great candy cane tea. If you’re a fan of strong black tea’s like an Assam, this might not be for you, unless you also enjoy blends. In my opinion the tea taste is there but it’s certainly not strong, or at the forefront; it’s melded into a great blend of the peppermint and other flavors. It’s called Candy Cane tea, but I could certainly enjoy this all year, I can’t imagine what it would taste like iced in the summer!
I played around with a few different brewing times, 3 minutes seemed to work pretty well for the first and second steepings, and I usually had the water a bit under 100 Celsius.
