I like mint, a lot! Mint chocolate is my favorite ice-cream. So naturally I was excited to see that this month’s Handmade Tea was a mint flavored tea!
Now as you can see the Yerba Mate is a very fine chop tea leaf. Thankfully in the first Handmade Tea shipment, Caleb made sure to include a mini micro tea strainer which came in hand when I made this tea.
Along side the fine cut tea leaves, were some beautiful organically grown chocolate mint leaves and dried elderberries.
This tea was really mild, it was nice - nothing overly minty or chocolately. I happen to love mint tea so I would have liked it to me a little MORE minty, but the chocolate mint has a much milder mint flavor than peppermint or spearmint.
This photo came out fuzzy, but I wanted to show you the tin.
