Well today has definitely been much improved from the shit show that was yesterday. For one thing, it is the start of a long weekend which means I got to leave work early today since the office closes at 3. Then, getting home I got to park the car for the weekend which means no more mini panic attacks for a little bit due to having to drive. Then, my sister and her husband got back from their honeymoon and brought gifts…for me that meant tea.

They were in Africa so they grabbed a few teas for me to try and then they had a stopover in Paris where they grabbed a few more goodies to bring home. In addition to tea, they hit up Laduree in Paris and bought me one of each macaron flavor. I told them they were insane given when I bought 5 macarons, it cost me like 20 euro. They bought like 20 macarons. She said is wasnt that much but I have a sneaking suspicion she is lying. Nonetheless, it was a very nice gesture and I look forward to trying all my new treats.

This is one of the teas she grabbed while in Africa. I have never heard of this company but she came back with a sampler box of 16 of their teas. I am not sure why I reached for this one first but it is a nice introduction to the company.

First thing I noticed was all the mint in the teabag when I pulled it out of its little box. It was like a 1:1 ratio of mint and black tea leaf. I wasn’t sure if this meant the mint would be overpowering or not but as I sip the brewed tea, I can say it definitely is not. I am not a huge fan of chocolate in teas but the chocolate here comes off more as a creaminess and the slightest hint of cocoa to mix with the fresh peppermint flavor. The base tea is smooth and very timid but provides a solid foundation for the other flavors to stand on. It’s a decent chocolate mint tea.

With that said, this reminds me more of the dark chocolate mint chocolates (the brown ones) from Laura Secord as opposed to the Ice Mint chocolates (the light green ones), which is my preferred of the two (hopefully people know what I am talking about and know the difference or this reference will sound like complete gibberish). It’s good but not something that is leaving such a strong impression that I would need to source more of this from Africa. Pleasant way to end an evening though.
