From The Tea Table

We made this blend (and its decaf counterpart) at the request of a local tea room that serves our tea. Chocolate Mint Black Tea is a delicious black tea blend with peppermint, coconut flakes, cocoa bits, chocolate chips, and natural flavors. Add milk and sugar for an even creamier treat! Use one teaspoon per cup and steep 3-5 minutes in freshly boiled water.

I keep needing to bump the rating down on this one. It is good, but I seem to always want a shot of cocoa powder added. It is like this tea has a personality complex….it does not know if it wants to be tea, hot chocolate, or an herbal infusion. Anyway, with the cocoa, milk, and sweetener added it is pretty pleasing, but on its own it is just good. I think it will be easy to move on to my own version after all.

This one smells like a york peppermint patty… Yummm! It has a very nice balance of mint and chocolate and smells a bit like vanilla. Brews up to a nice dark amber color.

The smell is still really nicely balanced with chocolate and mint and you can smell the black tea as well. The taste is smooth. I feel as if I can’t really distinguish any one flavor to be said but it just is really smooth and leaves a nice refreshed feeling in your mouth. I really like it!

Sipdown no. 9 of April 2019 (no. 58 of 2019 total, no. 546 grand total).

Chocolate mint teas have a hard row to hoe with me. I love the idea of Girl Scout thin mints in a cup, but that’s almost never what I get. Usually it is a problem of balance in the blend. Almost always too much mint. Every once in a while, not enough mint.

I gave this one relatively high marks because I thought the balance was better than most, though the chocolate could have been given a bit more of a boost. I stand by that original assessment.

It would be wonderful, one day, to find Girl Scout thin mints in a cup…

There IS a Thin Mints tea… by Bigelow I think? It tasted like Thin Mints to me, but this was years ago that I tried one teabag.

The Dark Chocolate Peppermint winter seasonal tea by Art of Tea comes very close to me. I really like that tea but have been hesitant to restock it because Art of Tea is one of those places that only sells the dreaded 4 oz. bags that I hate. Let me know if next winter you want to split a bag with me. :-)
