So if you get Deb’s newsletter then you probably saw that her upcoming Winter/Holiday collection is cookie themed and while I was initially really excited when I looked at the list of blend names I wasn’t super enthused about most of them – though a couple piqued my curiosity, so we shall see…
It did prompt me to go and dig out this untried blend from my group order with VariaTea and Sil earlier this year, though!
I know VariaTea liked this one as an iced latte because it reminds her of mint chip ice cream, so I will definitely have to keep that in mind for the rest of the sample. This time around I just tried it hot and plain, and I wasn’t feeling it. It’s not particularly cookie like, but that wasn’t what lost me. I just really didn’t love the combination of a a more refreshing and menthol spearmint with the chocolate. Plus, it was a lot of spearmint. I enjoy spearmint teas, but when I think “mint chip” my mind definitely goes more towards creamy peppermint with chocolate than crisp spearmint.
It was just a bit of a disconnect for me.
