Wasn’t really sure what to expect with this tea, although I was hoping it would taste something like the candy cane ice cream I remember from when I was younger (I’m not big on ice cream, so I haven’t had it in years since I don’t buy it). Luckily – it actually does taste like that, in an unsweetened way. Nice, fresh, creamy mint with no gross peppermint leaf flavour, despite their obvious inclusion. I’m not really getting chocolate/cocoa, but the white chocolate is definitely adding a creaminess (and a bit of an oily scum, but it’s nothing like what sprinkles leave). The base is completely unremarkable/drowned out by the mint. This reminds me a lot of some chocolate mint rooibos I’ve had in the past, except no icky rooibos flavour! Since I’m making this comparison, perhaps I am tasting more chocolate than I thought?
Overall, I think this tea is pretty decent. Rather Christmassy IMO, so I’m drinking it out-of-season, but it does taste like mint ice cream. Not a favourite for me, but I think it’s pretty solid.
