drank Chocolate Mint Rooibos by TeaTime
75 tasting notes

I received several 1oz. bags of teas from this tea company for Christmas last year, and have sipped my way through most of them. They were all decaf or herbal flavored teas, which I like to have in the evening during cold months. Not all of the flavors were what I would have chosen myself, and a few surprised me in a good way.

Made myself my first cuppa of this tea just now. It’s got a strong mint flavor with the inference of chocolate around the edges. It’s a bit like an after dinner mint. I don’t dislike it, but it wouldn’t be the first thing I reached for. The package suggested adding milk and sugar. I added a splash of milk, but not the sugar. I typically don’t sweeten my teas, particularly my evening teas.

I brewed this while I was making the batter for a honey cake this evening, and if there was a tea that tasted the way the honey, coffee, and vanilla mixture smelled like, I’d very much like to try it.

I started as a coffee drinker who appreciated tea. I mainly drank a few flavored bagged teas (and of course, Southern sweet iced tea). I pull out the Throat Coat and Breathe Easy when I’m sick, but aside from that, teas had never been a daily part of my life. However, my sister has exposed me to a broader range of flavors, and to loose teas, which was good when coffee started bothering me and I needed a new source for warm cups of caffeine delivery systems. I mainly drink English breakfast teas these days, but occasionally explore some others. Earthy teas that are low in bitterness are my preference, and I tend to avoid fruity teas in general, with a few exceptions.
