I first tried this one on Saturday in my Timolino, but it didn’t make too much of an impression for reasons I don’t quite understand. It smells amazing! Rich chocolate, mint, and vanilla. Made in a cup, it also tastes great. This is the second time I’ve said it recently, but I think I’m getting to the stage with my Timolinos where they just need to be replaced.

Anyway, the tea. I used 1 tsp of leaf, and left it for 4 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk, just because it’s first thing and it brewed up pretty dark. I can actually see tiny black vanilla seeds on the surface of the tea, and the flavour of the vanilla is very prominent in the initial sip. It’s so creamy and rich, it’s actually reminding me of very high-end vanilla ice cream, or maybe even creme anglaise. So intense.

The chocolate is largely a flavour contributed by the Fujian black base, as far as I can discern. It’s a very cocoa-like chocolate, a little on the dry side, but not at all artificial. It’s also quite gentle, but it pairs well with the vanilla to create a very decadent, dessert-like effect. The mint is also very subtle, but it’s identifiable as a fresh, cooling sweetness in the background.

Chocolate, vanilla and mint are flavours that work well together, and I don’t think that can be disputed. Most of the debate comes down to whether the tea in question balances them well, and I think here it’s a definite yes. It’s pretty heavy on the vanilla, so it’d definitely help if you like your tea rich and creamy, but it certainly makes for a delicious cup! Another win from Liquid Proust.

This my third LP tea of the day, and I’m still as excited about this one as I was about the first one. Strong the vanilla is, in this one (Yoda voice).

This is nice and smooth. Very calming. The cocoa notes remind me of the 2014 puerh by WP I drank yesterday and today. The peppermint is definitely there but not overpowering. The black tea base is very good too.

I added a teaspoon of cacao nibs to the second steep, but they didn’t really do much.

Overall, this is a good tea. I liked the cocoa vanilla taste and the refreshing peppermint.

I was just texting my friend and told her I got more tea today and she replied ,“Om nom nom nom. I’m turning into a tea maniac! You’re converting me :p.”

Peppermint Nom Nom everybody (stands. closes eyes. raises glass. sits down.).

I got more of the Fujian leaves in my tumbler with the mint, and wow, this is so well balanced. I’m all about that base.

A lot of mint teas are overwhelmingly mint. Sometimes they can be overwhelmingly fake chocolate if they are supposed to be like a peppermint patty. This one is pretty nice since the black tea is distinctly a black tea, but a smooth one that is close enough to the chocolaty profile. At least for me. But I’d still recommend this if you’re looking for a solid mint tea that doesn’t over steep easily.

I personally prefer to stop it at 3-4 minutes. If I go longer, it has to be closer to seven or eight. That’s just me: please don’t follow my weird word. I thought about getting myself some more, and I just might. So many teas to try though, so much to budget…
