Chocolate Mint Tea Review
The Perfect After-Dinner Tea
Summary : The Chocolate Mint Tea available through
Culinary Teas is a perfect after-dinner tea - or a tea for when you have
the desire for chocolate but want to keep the calories away by avoiding
chocolate bars and other snacks.
Review : The smell of the tea is absolutely, well,
superb. The tea fresh out of the package smells exactly like chocolate
mint. For chocolate lovers, the smell alone will want to make you gulp
down pot after pot of this delicious tea.
Now, true chocolate lovers may be a tad disappointed with the tea. Like
all teas of the world, sweetness in the tea is a bit lacking. Sugar or
flavor sticks can be added to sweeten things up a bit, but the taste
of the chocolate in the tea won't compare to, say, munching on a Hershey's
Likewise, people in search of the perfect "mint" tea will
also be disappointed. The mint taste in the tea is quite noticeable,
however the minty taste is not nearly as strong as in some other mint
teas - and certainly nowhere near what one can find in a mint lifesaver.
Adding in a mint flavorstick is not recommended - as the mint of a flavorstick
will completely overwhelm the chocolate flavor of the tea and impart
a strange taste to the tea.
However, that all said, the combination of chocolate and mint in this
tea makes for a very flavorful blend. Neither the chocolate nor the mint
dominates this tea, making for a nice, soothing blend. This tea also
has a very nice, soothing after taste - one that is neither too sweet
nor too bitter.
The Chocolate Mint Tea sold by
Culinary Teas is available in both loose
leaf form and in tea bags. Loose leaf tea was used for this review.
Recommendation : Absolutely - particularly if you like
chocolate and mint!
