This black tea blend is a delight. The quality of the peppermint is obvious from the moment the hot water touches the tea and leaves. But on the tongue, the mint is so crisp, clean and fresh tasting that it made me remember what a huge difference there really is between natural fresh ingredients and the mass produced, boxed and processed “flavorings” we’ve become so accustomed to drinking.

The soothing mint is the predominant flavor, but it does not hide the lovely cocoa flavor. This is not, however, a “hot chocolate” drink, it is a rich black tea with a heady aroma and flavor of real peppermint, supported by just the right amount of chocolatey warmth.

It has become one of my very favorite morning teas, especially on cold mornings. The mint opens my eyes, the black tea revs my metabolism and chocolate makes me smile. A good way to start a day!

I am an online writer living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. After a cancer diagnosis in 2006, I began learning the importance of a healthy immune system and balanced hormones, and the integral part food plays, both positively and negatively. Through my personal educational journey I have found that tea can be an essential element to good health and wellness. I’ve recently started a blog where I review healthy, but delicious, foods and beverages, and tea is always at the top of my list!
