Thumbs up!"Because the water cannot be too hot and the infusion time is relatively short at 2-3 minutes, I would also suggest taking a spoon and stirring the leaves a bit before releasing the liquid into the cup as this will allow the chocolate chips to dissolve a bit better flavor the cup. "

necessiteasrockinmor"Like most of our teas we put a twist on this blend as well. This is a blend of gunpowder green tea and peppermint leaves with a touch of chocolate flavor. Oh, and we couldn't forget the chocolate chunks!" ---The Necessiteas website.

If you follow along and read Teaviews regularly, then you probably already know that I am a huge fan of The Necessiteas when it comes to flavored blends. This is not my first experience with this blend as I have purchased this blend previously and found it quite good. It was also not surprising to me that I enjoyed this blend as I happen to love just about anything chocolate mint (including chocolate ice cream and specifically Baskin Robbins). Anyway, since I recently ran out of this, I decided to go ahead and request a sample of it for review. My sample and my previous personal stash were both chock full with nice amounts of chocolate chips, peppermint and the gunpowder green tea. I had no problem scooping up several chocolate chips without trying when I prepared my cup for this review. The aroma coming from my sample alludes to the delicious taste of the cup that is about to be enjoyed.

I would caution you not to prepare this in water that is too hot because otherwise the gunpowder will taste a bit swampy. Because the water cannot be too hot and the infusion time is relatively short at 2-3 minutes, I would also suggest taking a spoon and stirring the leaves a bit before releasing the liquid into the cup as this will allow the chocolate chips to dissolve a bit better flavor the cup. The cup brews up to a somewhat unattractive, swampy looking cup that does not do the flavor of the brewed cup justice. While mint does dominate the flavor profile overall, this blend has a nice balance of green tea, peppermint and chocolate undertones. The chocolate does manage to make its presence known despite the competition from the green tea and mint. I find that is often no small feat in chocolate mint blends as mint is such a dominating flavor. This cup is best enjoyed as it cools just a bit and also with a bit of rock cane sugar for sweetness if you are looking for a dessert-like experience.

While I don't generally think that green tea is the very best tea base for chocolate mint flavors, this blend kinda calls that thinking into question as it is very well done and quite delicious. This proves that green tea can hold it's own as a dessert tea and not just pair with fruity flavors. I have been reminded why this blend is likely a repurchase item as soon as I whittle down my current tea inventory a bit more. I think this one is definitely worth consideration.
