Diggity Tea: Harney & Sons’ Chocolate Mint

Maker: Harney & Sons
Type: Flavored black tea
Brew: 1 tsp to 8oz or 1 sachet to 12 oz boiling water, 5 minutes
Notes: comes both loose and in convenient sachets

The black tea base of Chocolate Mint is high quality, which is essential for a good flavored black tea—well, essential for any tea, really, as flavoring doesn’t give a tea maker an excuse to use low-grade tea. For those of us who dislike the bite in most black teas, the chocolate extract and the addition of peppermint create one of the smoothest black tea experiences around. I’ve tried the plain Chocolate version; it’s the refreshing taste of the peppermint that makes the blend work.

This tea is one of my favorite pick-me-up teas. I wish there was a decaf or herbal version for the evenings, but that’s what Mighty Leaf’s Chocolate Mint Truffle is for.

Rating: 5/5 — a staple in the tea pantry
