Steep for 5 minutes, 208°F
For stronger flavor, steep longer.
For loose leaf herbal iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
Our tea is made from the husks of cacao seeds that are leftover from the chocolate making process. These husks contain a hint of the chocolate flavors once inside, but do not retain measurable quantities of caffeine or the other bitter flavors of pure cacao.
Herbal teas, technically speaking, are not true teas as they are not a product of the Camellia sinensis plant. They are properly referred to as "tisanes" or infusions, crafted from dried herbs, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and fruit. Like tea, herbal infusions have been consumed for centuries as healing tonics to lift the spirit and enhance well-being. Our Herbal blends are hand crafted with artisan care and a vast knowledge of how theantioxidant properties and therapeutic applications ofpure, fresh herbs, flowers, and botanicals, deliver delicious healthful infusions that can delight both mind and body.

Best Chocolate mint tea ever
Very delicious. Other brands have either not enough chocolate or not enough mint flavor. But this one is just so well balanced. I drink it every day and mix it in the morning with the skin smart cucumber mint tea for health benefits and caffeine. I also ship it regularly to my mother in Germany since she can not find anything like it over there. Please never discontinue.

One of my absolute favorites
I love this tea. I have had both the loose tea and the pyramid infusers and the flavor is fabulous. This tea is the perfect blend of chocolate and mint. The tea is both soothing and robust. I am never disappointed in the taste and find it to be an excellent stress reliever after a hard day at work.

Candy in a Cup!
Its wonderful! My favorite I think, there are a few that are hard to choose between they are all so amazing. However, this one is dessert from start to finish. I do add a bit of stevia as I like mine a bit sweet but this flavor without it is still to die for if your a chocolate lover as I am.

A chocolate-lovers tea
I was just enjoying a cup of this tea and had to admit - this is my favorite way to get that taste of chocolate without eating a whole bar of it! A great tea for after dinner, but really, anytime is a good time for chocolate & mint.

Perfect balance, indeed. Exactly right. How can it be that a single sip is so simply, purely...chocolate and mint? But it is. Nothing else. Chocolate. Mint. Exquisite.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
