Sight: This tea has twisted black tea leaves as its base, and pieces of white chocolate chips, candy cane, and snowflake sprinkles. The white colour of the ingredients distributed throughout the black tea leaves reminds me of snow. The tea steeps a translucent orange colour.

Smell: This tea smells sweet and minty like a peppermint white chocolate. Steeping the tea enhances the black tea aroma.

Taste: I would be lying if I said I hadn’t eaten one of the white chocolate chips at the beginning of this tasting, and I’m here to tell you that it was very pepperminty. As for the tea, it tastes like peppermint black tea with the essence of creamy white chocolate.

Black tea, peppermint, white chocolate… You could never go wrong with this tea.


Okay, so I went to make this tea into a latte, and it started fizzing and creating air bubbles when I added the milk. I have no idea what could’ve caused that.
