Information: Everything and everybody needs a special day right? Well, according to the National Confectioners Association, February 19th is Chocolate Mint Day. Mmmm. That’s a good day. The combination of chocolate and mint is one of the most delectable flavor pairings known to humankind. It’s a fact. The exact origins of the combo are unknown, but considering people have known about both ingredients for thousands of years, it was no doubt a long, long time ago. (The ancient Maya and Aztec of South America discovered chocolate and mint is so old it features in ancient Greek mythology.) In our opinion, this exceptional chocolate mint black tea blend is the ultimate expression of the delectable pairing. For a real treat, brew yourself a nice hot pot of tea then add a splash of milk and dash of sugar to open up all the chocolaty, minty goodness. Here’s to Feb. 19, the tastiest day of the year!
