Brew a Perfect Cup
For the perfect cup of Chocolate Mint flavour Infusion, use one pyramid per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes or according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.
I tried these initially after friends introduced to me on a girls chill out weekend and have been hooked since! The taste is the perfect combination of refreshing mint with chocolate undertones, neither of which are fighting against each other; which to me provides a fantastic balance. I don't generally like fruit teas or anything too out of the ordinary - I'm a mix between; a good strong Yorkshire tea (builders style 'stand your spoon up in it') or a good quality Earl Grey, but this is definitely now my all time favourite. I could drink all hours! My only negative is there are not enough in the box for the price :( and I may have to start using the "Ooo they were in the sale" line to justify buying so many??
When you open the packet you immediately smell spearmint which I love. There was a slight chocolate scent but no chocolate flavour at all. Don't get me wrong I wasn't expecting it to taste like a minty hot chocolate but I was very disappointed. There wasn't much of a mint taste either.
My favourite thing about this tea is that neither the chocolate nor the mint are too overpowering. It's a smooth, velvety drink, ideal on a cold winter's evening. The mint adds the right amount of freshness to counteract the sweetness of the chocolate. I'll be buying it again.
I would like to review this product, which I bought on-line, but it was never delivered. After 10 days spent calling, waiting, writing emails, talking to different members of the staff nobody is able to tell me where the parcel is, I had to buy other presents for Christmas and I did not even received a refund. The worse part, I believe, is the absolute indifference to my problem. I hope not many clients have been as disappointed as I have been and that they actually got to enjoy what they bought. I would not recommend the website to buy Whittard products.
