Baby, it’s cold outside
Got a blizzard on the way? Score! There’s no better excuse to cozy up inside with a great cup of tea. And this all natural chocolate-mint tisane is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly winter day. With peppermint, cacao nibs and dark chocolate drops, it’s sweet, creamy and oh-so comforting. The best part? Cute little snowflake-shaped sprinkles that add a touch of sweetness. Bring it on, winter!

Today I discovered that I have very few non-caffeinated teas in my stash. Even though this one is over three years old, I thought it would be nice on this cold, almost-winter evening. I steeped 2 teaspoons of leaf in a 355 ml mug at 200F for 4, 6, and 10 minutes.
The dry aroma, which reminds me of an After Eight mint, is the best part of this tea and is probably why I bought it in the first place. On opening the tin, I also get a whiff of alcohol, though this could be due to age. The mint is strong in the first steep, and is complemented by slightly oily dark chocolate. I noticed the texture issue when I first bought this tea, so it isn’t age related. The next couple steeps are quite similar and have a pronounced sweetness.
This isn’t a bad tea, but I won’t miss it when it’s gone.

I really quite enjoyed this one… of course chocolate and mint! It’s a different chocolate taste vs. hot chocolate… it must be the cocoa beans or the husks that’s giving it a deeper, stronger, cocoa flavor. I really enjoyed it, the mint is even nice to breath in. Definitely perfect for a cold winters day!
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Peppermint, White Chocolate
Hmm…. so from looking at it, it looks mostly like peppermint tea, with some cute snowflakes and some chocolate pieces.
After steeping for 5 minutes, this is really quite strong. I’m tasting peppermint, a slight bitter aftertaste, and not much chocolate. I took a look at the tea satchet, and realized not much of the chocolate had actually melted…so I used the side of the spoon to squeeeeeze all that chocolate goodness into the tea cup. My next sip tasted a lot sweeter, and much more chocolatey. A huge improvement.
Problem with this tea is that it’s a bit tricky…you don’t want to oversteep it because the peppermint will get bitter, but if you don’t steep it long enough, the chocolate won’t melt. If you’re using a tea satchet, I recommend squeezing the chocolate out separately after brewing. If you’re using loose leaf, you could try to pick out the chocolate pieces, melt them, and put it in the tea. Although that’s a lot of effort for one cup of “nothing special” tea.

This Herbal tea is supposed to be mint and chocolate! It taste’s solely of mint. If you brew a strong enough cup, there are hints of white chocolate. But really this is a straight up mint tea, with no real other flavors.
Also, the white chocolate can make it a bit greasy, and give it a slightly odd mouth feel (particularly when iced).
I really like mint tea, so I find this tasty, just completely unremarkable.
I’m not a huge fan of peppermint teas but I enjoy this one. I enjoy this one because there is a stronger bite to it at the end kind of like a peppermint candy, it doesn’t just taste awkwardly herbal. I don’t really taste the white chocolate but I’m curious if I tried this as a latte how it would taste.
I tried this when I ordered the 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar (from 2016). I was surprised at how much I liked it – it tasted like After Eight in liquid form to me. (I have been cutting down sugar, so that may be why this tasted so sweet to me.)
I had it with quite a bit of milk – I’d say about 1-2oz. This was definitely one of the few David’s Tea that I liked from the Advent Calendar. I even bought more during the sale.
