Today’s Teeccino advent is one I’ve already tried (and didn’t like) so I thought I’d break open this one. I think I brewed this one a bit strong, its very minty. There is an underlying mocha taste like someone added too much mint flavored creamer to a strong cup of joe. I don’t mind this cup, I’ll brew it a little weaker next cup, and I’d surely use it as a stomach calming peppermint brew. The second steep is more subdued, its hard to tell sometimes, do you need more chicory (I hesitated to use leaf here, because its not) to get the taste as in hazelnut and gingerbread, or does a little go a long way as in chocolate mint and candy cane. I have a whole bag to figure out this ratio and the second steep is closer to a mint peppermint patty, a decent cup.
