I’m always interested in Mint Chocolate Chip Flavored stuff! I have to admit…I just think chocolate and mint are genius together…generally speaking!
BUT…when it comes to this flavored rooibos…it doesn’t let me down! It’s intensely flavored and smells AWESOMELY AWESOME! I know that is redundant and not the most creative phrasing for an official tea/tisane review but it DOES fit the bill…trust me!
I can see all of the ingredients and something that looks like dried apple but I don’t see that in the list of ingredients so maybe what I am seeing is a vanilla bean or something.
The taste is a nice, bold, strong Chocolate and Mint Mix. It does hide quite a bit of the Rooibos taste but paired with the vanilla makes for a milky-smooth ending and aftertaste.
This is very good! I like this a lot! And I mean A LOT!
As it cools the chocolate becomes more malty…almost like a chocolate milk shake type malty…this aspect of the taste interests me as I don’t recall having that happen to me in other tea/tisanes.
This without a doubt made it to my mid 90 percentile of favorites!
