Art of Tea has been one of those companies that I’ve always wanted to try so when they contacted The SororiTea Sisters about reviewing a few of their offerings, I was giddy!
Dark Chocolate Peppermint seemed appropriate for the season so I decided to start with this one. The dry leaf of this blend had a lovely rich dark chocolate aroma that had a note of peppermint in it. I’m typically not a dark chocolate fan but this one even made me drool a tad.
I finished this cuppa off in no tie flat. This tea had a rich earthy tone. After I took a few sips, I checked out the description online and found that this is actually a puerh blend, which is where that earthy note is coming from. Those earthy tones mingle gorgeously with the rich peppermint freshness. This tea is an absolute treat and one that I’ve been enjoying cuppa after cuppa. I noticed there are also peppercorns in the blend but I can’t say that I’m noticing their flavor.
Regardless, this tea is one that should be tried by all who enjoys puerh and ones that are curious or wanting to check out puerh blends. I’m not a huge puerh tea drinker but this tea has me wanting to check out other Art of Tea blends and more puerh teas.
Here’s the scoop!

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
