This Chocolate Mint Tea from Culinary Teas had me at chocolate. But, as I’ve said before, I am a chocoholic, so even when a tea says it’s a chocolate tea, I am skeptical until I’ve tasted it, because their idea of chocolate tea may not be equal to my idea of chocolate tea. I’m sure that fellow chocoholics understand where I’m coming from there.
But this has a pleasant level of chocolate to it. Granted it is not as strong as some chocolate teas I’ve tasted, but, it has a nice balance of chocolate and mint and tea. So while I would normally balk at the amount of chocolate here, I am not going to do that, because as it is, it is quite harmonious and palate pleasing.
The black tea base is strong and brisk without being too aggressive. It doesn’t attempt to overpower the flavors, but the flavor is not lacking either. The chocolate is a sweet chocolate which is beautifully complimented with the crisp, fresh taste of peppermint. What this tastes like to me is that someone dropped a peppermint patty in a cup of Black Ceylon.
This is absolutely delicious. It is sweet but not cloying. No additional sweeteners are needed with this one, making it the perfect dessert tea that can be enjoyed any time. This tea not only gets passing marks from the chocoholic in me, but the seal of approval from my sweet tooth.
