Peppermint Patty is a herbal tea made of vegan chocolate chips, organic marshmallow leaf, organic peppermint. This caffeine free and vegan friendly tea is from Butiki Teas.
Yay, Butiki Teas! I haven’t done an order with them for awhile and with this latest order I ordered a lot! Oohhh yeah!
Mintea the Owl was excited – finally a mint tea for him to help review!
Dry Leaf: Opening the tea package, Peppermint patty is a blast of sweet mint and chocolate! I can sense that white smushy middle of the mint filling and melty chocolate coating! It is seriously like unwrapping the actual candy, without the sticky chocolate on the fingers.
The tea has a generous amount of chocolate chips! Wow!
Steeping Instructions: I followed package instructions: 5 minute steep with boiling water.
I gave the gravity steeper a good swirl to get all the chocolate to dissolve before pouring the tea into my cup. This was after I was able to pry the owl off the gravity steeper.
The tea is a cloudy light brown tea that smells like light hot cocoa and mint. In a coloured cup, it looks quite dark.
Taste: Peppermint Patty sips in lightly at first – like flying on a big fluffy and smooth cloud in a light minty breeze. That cloud drifts you into a drizzle of milky chocolate ending with a crunch of mint. There is a lingering aftertaste of both creamy chocolate and mint.
As I drink the Peppermint Patty tea down, it becomes more chocolately, I’m guessing the chocolate flavoring is sinking to the bottom. By the way, no bitterness or dryness in this tea.
This tea very much so tastes like a peppermint patty, but at 50% less sweetness. There is enough sweetness here for me for it to taste like a dessert! I love the sweetness level as is, but one could add some rock sugar to enhance the chocolate flavor.
Comments: Peppermint Patty? Very tasty! I do love peppermint tea and the chocolate flavoring matches perfectly to the peppermint patty candy!
If you love peppermint tea, I highly suggest trying Peppermint Patty from Butiki Teas! The blend is fantastic and well executed to make an awesome late night dessert tea!
“Hands off my tea! This is Mintea’s tea!! Hoot!”
