I was a Girl Scout for a long time. I’m not 100% certain how long, but it was all throughout middle school. I actually really enjoyed it, but of course my favorite part of the whole experience was the cookies. How could it not be? This fabulous blend by The NecessiTEAs was made with a certain cookie in mind- Thin Mints….but with a twist: irish cream! And as we speak, I am eating some Thin Mints and sipping on my Dirty Girl Scout tea! What a combo. Y’all I am in chocolate mint heaven right now! I also think that at this moment I am the best judge of whether this tea embodied a twist on these cookies properly, and the answer to that is absolutely! The best part? It is a black tea blend, which means that not only are my taste buds happy but i’m getting caffeinated at the same time! Win/win situation for me!
This tea was not overly minty or overly chocolate. I appreciated that. The mint to chocolate ratio was definitely balanced. The flavors of cookies and irish cream really set this tea apart to other chocolate mint teas. I feel like sometimes teas that include mint end up tasting medicinal, but that was not the case with Dirty Girl Scout. Another aspect I really enjoyed about this tea was that although it was blended with a dessert cookie in mind, it was light enough on taste that it can be drunk anytime of the day and not just as a dessert. So you can technically have cookies for breakfast without the guilt! I really enjoyed this blend and I totally recommend grabbing a pack of Thin Mints to go along with it! Yum!
Here’s the scoop!

We want to commemorate the solemn and depressing end of Girl Scout Cookie season with a tribute tea, the Dirty Girl Scout! We have put a twist on this treat by flavoring black tea with natural flavors of white chocolate and Irish cream then sprinkled a generous amount of organic peppermint into the blend and topped it off with real Andes mint pieces. If you want to get real dirty, add sweetener of choice and a splash of milk.

During today’s tea samples I have been sipping on some pretty odd flavors and needed to cleanse my palate a bit this Chocolate Mint Black Tea from 3 Teas seemed to do the trick!
Chocolate Mint Black Tea from 3 Teas smells amazing! Just what you think it would smell like…chocolate, mint, and black tea. The flavor is incredible! Again, it tastes like a perfect combo of chocolate, mint, and black tea! The ratios are done nicely. One ingredient doesn’t seem to overpower the other ingredients. It tastes like a Girl Scout Cookie THIN MINT. There doesn’t seem to be any dairy in this which is great for those of us who don’t consume it but still want to be spoiled by that chocolate flavor! Ironically, THIN MINTS are also vegan so that’s awesome! Just a little hint for you!
If you are looking for something minty-fresh, mint chocolate, or just to fill that void of chocolate in your life and want it in the form of a cup of tea – give Chocolate Mint Black Tea from 3 Teas a try! It’s pretty darned tasty!
