001Chocolate is not my favorite thing.  I do like chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and I also like yellow cake with chocolate frosting.   And I’ve been known to drink a mocha or hot caramel cocoa.  However, if you put chocolate candy in front of me, or chocolate pie or brownies, there are about two dozen things I would choose over them.

So it was with some reservation that I tried a sample packet of Chocolate Mint tea by Harney & Sons of Massachusetts several months ago.  Now it is my favorite cold morning drink!

I discovered Harney & Sons about 10 years ago when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and my doctor told me to cut all caffeine and salt from my diet.   Since I have consumed tea (hot, cold, iced) all my life and at the time of the diagnosis I was consuming about half a gallon of black tea in one form or another each day, I went on a search for herbal teas and discovered Harney & Sons.  They have expanded since then and offer many, many types of blends of teas.

My blood pressure is now well under control and I have returned to one cup of black tea most mornings without any problem, relying on herbals the rest of the time.  When the weather turned cool, I went to the cupboard and pulled out the tin box you see above.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.  It’s wonderful!  And go to their website at and have a look if you drink tea at all.  You can also find some of their teas at some Starbucks in Barnes & Noble stores…not all, but some.


  1. Thanks for the tea tip!


  2. Their tea is great (and the chocolate flavour sounds interesting), but I like their tins best – I have a whole stack of different coloured ones decorating my kitchen 🙂
