I ordered about 10 types of tea. This one was my favourite. It has the perfect flavour. I drink this when I’m craving something sweet.
Has there ever been a flavor combination more ubiquitous than that of chocolate and mint? We're all familiar with chocolate mint ice cream, chocolate mint bars, chocolate mint wafers - unfortunately, none of these are normally associated with a healthy lifestyle. Well all that has changed with the creation of Chocolate Mint Rooibos herbal tea. Finally, you can enjoy all the minty, chocolaty goodness you love minus the guilt it normally comes with.
Contrary to what you may first think, this herbal tea is packed with natural goodness. Rooibos (Latin: Aspalathus linearis), the base of the blend, contains many essential and revitalizing minerals and is believed to be good for the digestive system. Cacao beans (Latin: Theobroma cacao), enjoyed for millennia, are particularly rich in calcium. All natural Peppermint (Latin: Mentha piperita), has traditionally been prized for its ability to cure upset stomachs, among other things.
The undeniably amazing taste and healthy qualities of this tea make it an excellent, calorie free, after-dinner digestif. Brew a pot after your next spicy meal and note how the tea, as you sip it, seems to have a wonderfully calming effect on your body. This tea is also great as a summer time cool down drink. Simply pour your hot tea over a glass full of ice, add a sprig of fresh mint, a dash of sugar and sit back in your favorite recliner - ah, sweet perfection!
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
