Wow, DT was positively hopping with people today. I hadn’t even cleared the door before I was offered samples of two teas, which of course I accepted. I’ll talk about those two in a bit, though.
Some people might remember that I loved white chocolate frost so much, although they probably don’t remember that at all because to my chagrin, everyone’s world doesn’t revolve around me LOL. But I loved it a lot, and was kind of excited when dT said they were bringing in a similar blend htis year. I’m happy to report that there’s nothing glaringly abnormal about it, i.e. they didn’t decide to add in a hint of carrot or something equally disruptive. I was disappointed, however, to learn that they used milk chocolate instead of white chocolate, because I think the mint-chocolate pearing, while delicious, is a bit overdone. But it still smelled divine and so I got it as a latte to go.
even as a latte, the first thing you will notice upfront is the creamy peppermint. The chocolate isn’t all that apparent, which is actually fine by me. There were hints of it to finish off the sip, but the dominant flavour was that of peppermint cream. And, this may have been due to the fact that I had it as a latte, but the very tail-end of the sip had a tiny, tiny hint of “oversteeped peppermint tea” which like I said, I mostly attributed to it potentially being oversteeped. But it serves as a warning for future steeps: don’t let this sit endlessly. Also, I had it with soy milk, which is kind of nutty and probably wasn’t the best choice of milk, but I have a lactose issue and they don’t have lactose-free milk in-store. I got about 15 more g of this (along with a bunch of the other ones) to play with some more. I think I’ll really end up liking it, but we’ll see.
And holy mother of god, they have a white curve travel mug. I went weak in the knees. It’s so perfect, and I think I’ll be fantasizing about it for a long, long time. Or until I get it. But for the life of me I do not need another travel mug.
