Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Persimmon Tree Tea
This naturally caffeine-free infusion comprises organic rooibos, vanilla, rich chocolate and invigorating mint.
As this one brewed, I could smell it from the adjoining room. That’s how fragrant this one is! And it smells YUMMY!
From the very first sip, the chocolate dominated the cup. And that makes me a very happy chocoholic. The mint maintains its strength throughout the sip as well, but I am glad that it is second to the creamy chocolate flavor. I like mint, but when it comes to tisanes, it can sometimes overwhelm the cup. That doesn’t happen here.
What is a little overpowered is the flavor of the rooibos, but I don’t have a problem there. Rooibos isn’t my favorite flavor … but chocolate is. This tisane is a win win!
The vanilla comes in very smoothly here providing more of a creamy accent to the flavors of chocolate and mint. That is to say that the vanilla isn’t a strong flavor on its own but it really enhances the main flavors of mint and chocolate.
I’ll be honest, before I tasted this tea, I thought I was in for just another run-of-the-mill chocolate mint rooibos tisane. I mean, don’t get me wrong: I love chocolate mint tisanes (that is to say, I don’t think I’ve tried one that I didn’t enjoy, although I could be wrong on that). But I’ve tried a LOT of them, and they all pretty much taste the same. But this one stands out! This one is EXCELLENT! This one is a must try for chocolate mint fans!
