From Sullivan Street Tea and Spice

A bright, chocolaty cup, with a pleasant earthy finish. Tastes like a crisp peppermint patty, A great choice for an afternoon pick-me-up or an after dinner treat (decent amount of caffeine). Great with or without milk.

I was having a “tea shopping day” for my birthday in downtown Manhattan. I had been wanting to stop by this shop for a while not just because of the interesting variety of tea blends, but because I enjoying cooking and can always use more spices.

This was the first one I picked for two reasons, I have recently become a fan of mate tea, I love chocolate and mint, and there is no added sugars or artificial flavors.
The smell alone is amazing. I let it steep for just over 5 minutes, because I prefer a stronger tea.
I was hooked after the first sip! The chocolate taste so real, not like an artificial chocolate or a milk chocolate, but a real chocolate. The mint flavor is definitely stronger than the chocolate (which is good because I can drink it without feeling too guilty about starting my day with a dessert flavored tea) but the chocolate is there in every sip.

Compared to other mate teas I have had, I can taste the mate natural flavor, but more as a complementing flavor, not an overwhelming flavor, and I do prefer this if I am having a flavored blend, if I wanted chocolate and mint without the tea flavor in there, I would have a cookie or piece of mint chocolate.

There is no bitterness, or overwhelming sweetness, making it easy to drink and enjoy.

The only reason I didn’t give this tea any higher is that there is caffeine, so I cannot enjoy as a late night treat or brewed into an ice cream (unless I eat the ice cream for lunch which I am not above doing).

I bought two more teas from them and cannot wait to try them, I will probably be doing that tonight because this tea was just so great.
