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.

A friend of mine who is not a 'tea snob' suggested I mix the Chocolate Mint with Peppermint Herbal tea. We sweetened it with honey and bingo.....a wonderful refreshing after dinner tea. You might also want to sneak a small square of Hersey's dark chocolate into your mouth after your first few sips to bring your after dinner delight to an even great level of pleasure! This concoction was such a pleasant sensation to my palette that I doubled my Chocolate Mint tea order!
We LOVE when our customers give us ideas for 'changing up' our teas. Thank you Nancy for the special recipe with the secret addition! Sounds perfect!
I just got this and it is not tasty to me I can't explain it! So now I am going to have two or three tea parties to get rid of it! Then I will see what others think as it could be me. I loved the uplifting note!!!!
Oh Al, we do have more than 125 teas in the Good Life Tea inventory so you are likely not to like a few. It is rather funny that you didn't like the same tea that 2 other customers had rave reviews for this morning!
I'm new to loose leaf tea; this is the second one that I tried and the second one that I liked! It smells like Andes mints and tastes the same. While my palette isn't the most refined, it tastes smooth and rich, and the flavor is amazing. I definitely expect to be getting it again soon!
Thank you Nate. Your comments are spot on and we appreciate hearing from you!
