3.5 / 5
Since we are in the midst of the Holidays, I thought that this week would be a good one to take a break from pu–erh and review this tea. This was a one-off giveaway from Adagio that I had missed, but some of my friends were nice enough to give me some. It’s a fun tea, with a nice mint and cocoa flavor added to a black tea. Definitely mintier than I was expecting, but in a good way. It reminds me of a more mellow (and better) cocomint tea. It has a hint of ginger, although nothing too strong. A great tea for the holidays, especially when you get it free!
