And I'm sure she would have been drinking Mint Choc Rooibos from Madame Flavour
Oh my goodness, this is the closest thing to drinking a Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie!
I brewed a HydroFlask to take to art class yesterday, directly in so I didn't get a chance to snap a photo of it brewed...and I didn't want to use up another one of the precious (only 10 in a box!?) sachets. Absent the photo, trust me on this one. Here's the quote on the box - "For me this treat of mint and dark chocolate is a story of perfect partners. It brings together wonderful memories one of a particular after dinner treat..."
Ingredients: Rooibos leaf, organic peppermint leaf, cocoa bean pieces, cocoa shells, natural chocolate flavor, dark chocolate drops.
I am making a beeline for this flavor. Rating: 5+
Not so much the Caramel Oolong.
And it smelled just like those Goetze caramels with the white cream center we used to poke out and eat first.
Ingredients: First flush oolong leaf tea, caramel pieces, natural caramel flavor, sunflowers.
It brewed to a very light color - and the teabag tore a little bit, perhaps demonstrating its biodegradability. Plain it had a definite buttery caramel finish, but once I tried to recreate the Goetze caramel by adding the Italian Cream Coffee Mate, while it made it seem more creamy the caramel taste weakened.
I would give it a 3.5. Perhaps if you used two teabags, but given the fact there are only 10 in a box...you are going to drink through it quickly. However, if you are seeking the health benefits of oolong tea, this would be a tasty albeit not strongly flavored way to get it.
And kudos to the unique box design - The cube didn't crush in my suitcase! It's always fun nd interesting to find a tea company company with real people and real stories - check out her beautiful website.
