1 bag for 250mL water @100C, steeped 7 minutes, drunk bare.

I didn’t expect to like this one so much. The description on the packaging doesn’t do it justice. With a decently long steep — I find tisanes need that — you get a thick and creamy mouthfeel, loads of cocoa and mint in the scent, less so in the taste, and a subtle finish of lavender. It was the lavender that’s made me hesitate all these years, but I’m glad I finally tried this one today.

Aa ever with the tisanes and some blends, Stash knocks it out of the park. I find this as satisfying, and certainly more relaxing, as a good mint hot chocolate. Really impressed.

Cocoa and lavender? There’s a combo I would have never thunk up on my own!

Ditto. And I’m really surprised. The balance is excellent.

I’m trying to drink more tisanes, but I find it hard to get free of endless hibiscus in everything — bleah — or stale and woody rooibos — also blah. So this is a delight.

Or lemony minty stuff. Not that I mind that combo, either, but it’s used a lot.

My husband (you’ve heard me use his nickname—The Enabler) just brought home a box. Looking forward to giving it a try.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
