First Sip Thought: “Chocolate dream!”
Smell: First scent I noticed was…….ALL OF THEM! This tea is very well balanced with flavours. The vanilla, chocolate/cocoa, and mint were instant upon opening the packaging and even during steep. A sweet and tantalizing aroma to enjoy.
Taste: The tea itself looks beautiful with the chocolate pieces, cocoa beans, etc. It’s a chocolate lover’s dream! I love chocolate and I love mint. When you put those together you have the best flavour in the world….unless it’s not done right. Luckily, The Persimmon Tree nailed it with this tea. I’m someone who loves steeping mint tea into my hot chocolate because I just need that combination of goodness. I feel as if I no longer have to do that because this tea is even better than that. This tea is much more creamier, and well balanced. It’s very decadent that you really do feel like you’re indulging in some sort of dessert. If you decide to try this blend, I would suggest you give it a try as a tea latte too. Overall it is a very smooth, refreshing and quite energizing Rooibos dessert tea.
