Thumbs up!"While I could stand for the vanilla to be a tad more pronounced (mint does dominate here), this is a great blend. There are a lot of chocolate mint blends on the market and I like this variation."

vanilla_mint_big.jpg"Vanilla Mint is a smooth and refreshing blend of both green and black loose leaf tea with fragrant mint leaves and rich vanilla bean pieces. Delicious hot or iced, serve by the pitcher or in tall glasses with a sprig of fresh mint for a naturally sweet refreshment." ---Golden Moon's website.

This smells wonderful. Mint dominates the fragrance coming from my sample and Golden Moon's website confirms for me that both peppermint and spearmint are used. The vanilla bean completes the aroma as if almost an afterthought. I boiled water to make this and allowed it to cool off a few degrees before infusing the leaves. I let them steep for 4 min. I am never quite sure as to why companies blend green and blacks together because of the differences needed in water temperature, but this tastes great. I eased into my cup enjoying it first pure, and it is quite good. I then added a bit of rock cane sugar and that definitely brought out the vanilla a little more and made it more dessert-like. However, I actually like this best with a splash of milk. That made the vanilla a bit more creamy and toned down the mint just a tad.

While I could stand for the vanilla to be a tad more pronounced (mint does dominate here), this is a great blend. There are a lot of chocolate mint blends on the market and I like this variation. I am planning to order some of this. This makes a fabulous after-dinner cup sure to please mint lovers.
