Tea Time Thursday: Rooibos Tea: Mint Chocolate Rooibos

Rooibos Tea: Mint Chocolate Rooibos

Ingredients: South African rooibos, peppermint, chocolate bits, vanilla, chocolate mint flavouring.

    This tea was strangely familiar, because it tastes pretty much exactly like Read My Lips with its minty chocolatey-ness. Except the rooibos tea makes it sweeter, softer and lets the mint through a bit more. It also doesn't form as complex of a taste with the bitterness of black tea and the spice from the peppercorns. But I was kind of disappointed in the repetition in flavour, and if it has to come down between the two types of mint chocolate tea Read My Lips was way better. Although it is a good alternative if you're looking for something without caffeine. 

Overall: 3/5 Drinkable Cups of Tea.
It's okay, but I felt like I've been here already. But it's a great after dinner without the caffeine buzz before bed kind of tea.
