If you are a fan of minty chocolate, especially when combined together in a candy then this tea is for you. With real peppermint and chocolate pieces along with mint brittle you will be left with a minty, refreshing and chocolaty treat in your cup. A true breath, errr, drink of fresh air... I mean tea!

I have a package of Thin Mints that I’ve been trying really hard not to eat (I want to make ice cream out of them) so I decided that Swiss Mountain might be a good substitute for those times when I'm feeling weak. It didn't really work out the way I had planned.
The problem with Swiss Mountain is that is tastes very similar to several of the chocolate teas that Della Terra offers. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Dubbele Chocolade, which I was sent a sample of with my first order. The only difference is that they have added peppermint to create this blend. For the longest time I thought that I just did not care for chocolate teas, however, I've decided that I just don't care for the chocolate creme flavoring that Della Terra has chosen to use. Very few of their chocolate offerings have wowed me. The wet tea leaves smell a lot like a York peppermint patty, I just wish the tea had tasted more like one.
My Rating: 62/100
Would I order this again? No. I really don't like the chocolate flavoring Della Terra uses.
