I’ve heard this before, but, is it really true?
Well, in the case of these 12 Teas of Christmas, I have had many (well, five so far!) good things come to me as I’ve been waiting patiently for each day to arrive. However, I suspect that I would have still had these teas even if I hadn’t waited.
But don’t tell the kids that. It is important for them to know that good things come to those who wait. I don’t know why it is important for them to know this. For some reason, my parents thought it was important that I know this, and now, 52Teas feels the need to echo that sentiment.
But… we needn’t wait any longer! Today’s tea of the day is…
CHOCOLATE MINT BLACK TEA
Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: 52Teas
We had a special request to create a stunning chocolate mint tea to serve at a wedding reception and to offer as wedding favors for guests at the wedding. The result was so awesome, I think we should share it with our other customers. So, without further ado, here is our featured tea of the week for the week of July 13th, the ultimate dessert tea, our chocolate mint flavored black tea, with real organic cacao nibs, fresh cut peppermint and all natural flavors.
This tea came as a very welcome surprise this morning! I have tasted this tea (you can read my review of it here), but it is such a delicious tea, I don’t mind that at all.
This one tastes just as good as I remember it: a bright, crisp minty taste and a smooth, rich chocolate flavor. The black tea is robust and strong but rather than interrupting the flavors of the chocolate and mint, it somehow manages to enhance them.
The best part of this tea: the chocolate and mint flavors intensify as I continue to make my way down the cup.
The worst part of this tea: when it’s gone.
This was a delicious treat. I can’t wait to see what tea I’ll be enjoying tomorrow!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
