This blend is a favorite blend in my current tea stash. This is one of those blends that is plain delicious if you are a lover of chocolate mint flavors. My tin of this is came very well blended and is just chock full of not only black tea leaves and peppermint, but tons of little pieces of Andes Mints! It requires no manipulation of the ingredients to get a scoop out that is representative of all of the ingredients. The Necessiteas is a place where I regularly place orders and this blend is a good indication of why.
I prepare this with water that has been brought to a full boil and brew for 4 min. This has a very full flavor profile and if you are looking to taste the black tea base, then this might not be the choice for you. The mint is the most dominant player in the blend and this is largely due to a nice amount of fresh mint and the Andes Mint pieces. One thing to note is that your tea maker and cup are likely to have a trace of oil from the preparation of this blend. I attribute that to the fat from the melted chocolate from the Andes Mint. The chocolate does manage to hold its own and offers a nice undertone to the mint. I personally enjoy this blend best with a touch of rock cane sugar and a splash of milk (chocolate milk is even better). There you have it---a refreshing dessert in a cup that has a whole lot less calories than mint chocolate chip ice cream!
