  • Like the ice cream or the Girl Scout cookies, this tea will delight your palate.

    Close your eyes and imagine pleasure in its purest form. For your sense of taste chocolate is a powerful seducer. For the more delicate palate, a sprig of mint can make a meal. Long known as additionals, add-ons, and flavorings; chocolate and mint take center stage in this wonderful tisanal blend.

    Mint brings to mind sharpness and clarity. With a razor-like coolness, it divides up the other flavors it is combined with and takes its own unique taste right to the roof of the mouth. Rising into the sinuses, mint is a natural mate for the grounding, melty, warm presence of chocolate. Balance is key but we don't mind saying that this desert tea is a chocolate tea first and a minty concoction second.

    In that sense, the flavors are team mates and not rivals. Best in the evening at a full table, this tea can be enjoyed anytime that richness of taste and tone call to the heart of a tea lover. Ideal for gifts, special occasions, or “the person who has everything not to mention the “person who has tried every tea) this blend is intuitively delicious.

    Chocolate and mint each carry significant health properties. Chocolate is a terrific source of antioxidants and helps the body's natural defenses. Mint is said to ease gastrointestinal troubles and have a calming and soothing effect on various parts of the body.

    Chocolate Mint tea is a dream for many and – now – for the tea lover; it's a reality. Drink some now and you will keep coming back for more.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
