This all-natural herbal blend creates a sublime chocolate-mint tea, perfect as a delicious yet healthy substitute for dessert. Cacao shells from Guatemala have been infused with natural chocolate flavoring to create a rich dark chocolate taste. Peppermint brings striking, invigorating notes that cleanse the palate, making the tea an excellent after-dinner digestive. In fact, menthol is a natural decongestant, making it particularly helpful if you have a cold.
Buy this loose leaf tea in a stylish Tea Forte canister, air-sealed and filled with enough leaves for 35-50 cups. There are multiple ways to steep the tea, but if you’re looking for recommendations, bring fresh water to the boil and pour over 1 teaspoon of leaves per 8 ounces of water, before steeping for 5 minutes at 208 F. For herbal iced tea, use 3 teaspoons of leaves per 8 ounces of water, and double the steep time.
