Tea of the Week for December 16, 2019!

This tea utilizes our beautiful Fujian gunpowder black tea – this tea looks just like a green gunpowder but it’s a black tea! It has a natural chocolate-y note to it that’s so amazing! I thought it would make the perfect base for this tea.

To the black gunpowder tea, I added peppermint leaves, cacao shells, mini vegan chocolate chips & organic, vegan candy cane bits! This tea is quite wonderful: sweet, chocolate-y and minty! My chocolate mint loving daughter heartily approves of this tea!

It’s also VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen free!

ingredients: black tea, organic peppermint leaves, organic cacao shells, mini (vegan) chocolate chips (cane sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter), organic candy cane bits (organic cane sugar, organic brown rice syrup, natural peppermint flavor, color added [derived from organic fruit juice]) & organic natural flavors

Got this one in a mystery bag. Without milk, the flavoring was a little sharp tasting. With milk, it’s a nice candy mint. There’s something here that’s a little faker than I prefer, but it’s still decent. Oh, I just looked at the bag and realized this is also supposed to have a truffle flavor? I didn’t notice any chocolate at all. Maybe the slight muting of the black tea was perpetrated by the chocolate? Anyway, there are many similar teas that are better, but this one is fine.

Mm candy cane truffle sounds amazing. I may need to make some of those… XD

AJRimmer

That’s a great idea! The only kind of truffle I’ve ever made is Oreo, but I should give a peppermint one a try for the holidays!

Cameron B.

OMG peppermint and Oreo would also be amazing!

Dustin

I hear truffle and I first think of the fungus, not the confection and it makes things really confusing for a second!

AJRimmer

I wouldn’t be surprised if someone did make a truffle the fungus tea sometime since there are already mushroom teas out there!

Dustin

That could be good on a genmaicha base with popcorn flavoring. I love truffle popcorn.

Had this one yesterday morning. I just have all my new 52Teas samples in a box right now, and have been randomly pulling out samples during the work day and if it’s a caffeinated tea I brew it up. If it’s caffeine free, it goes back in the box for now…

This was nice! I always find it just a little weird to drink Candy Cane teas outside of Winter, even though I don’t find it weird to drink mint teas outside of Winter. Weird how commercial marketing messes with your mind like that. Nice medium-ish intensity sweet mint though with hints of chocolate. I wish there was more body to the tea, and a bit of texture to the mouthfeel – not richer/sweeter, because that level is good, but just a burlier black tea base. This is VERY smooth, but almost to a point where it comes off as a touch flat. Still enjoyed it though!

This reminds me of Peppermint Marshmallow Melting in Hot Chocolate…but its not as good. Now, in fairness, I rated Peppermint Marshmallow at 100 because I love it that much so that’s a tough sell to be better than. With that said, this is still a nice tea.

I think both the candy cane and chocolate come through strongly. They smell of chocolate hits you as the cup reaches your mouth. The sip starts off minty – candy cane mint, of course – and then sort of settles into a mint chocolate vibe. It is more truffle than chocolate bar and not as sweet as I expected/hoped this would be. That could be again because I was thinking Peppermint Marshmallow where the marshmallow adds sweetness.

Ultimately, it delivers on what the name promises. Am I in love? No. Will I have trouble finishing this? Also no. I just think if a tea were to be reblended in the future, Peppermint Marshmallow over this.

Next time, I think I will try this as a latte…

Sipdown! Had this a couple days ago…..meaning I was able to end January at 19 teas, though I haven’t had a chance to weigh my cupboard yet. Not really sure why I’m keeping track of things when my cupboard is TOO small but I am. I really enjoyed this one while it lasted even though I’ve been off mint teas. I credit Anne’s blending skills for that!
