Who doesn’t like the warm combo of mint and chocolate during the cooler months?

Chocolate and mint are legitimately one of the best flavor combinations ever! Here at Wise Ape tea, we love the chocolate mint combo so much that we have even dedicated an adaptogenic tea flavor to it.

We don’t know whether it’s the way the gentle flavors of mint and chocolate swirl together in our mouths, the incredible chocolate mint tea benefits, or maybe just how chocolate makes everything better?! Either way, we can’t get enough of chocolate and mint together!

If you’re in love with the chocolate mint combination as much as we are, you are going to absolutely LOVE this healthy and delicious chocolate mint tea latte!

One big inspiration for this recipe is those peppermint mochas from Starbucks, but our recipe has a healthy twist and is made with a wonderful herbal tea blend Chocolate Hustle for adaptogenic benefits and flavor… enough said, right?!

What Does This Chocolate Mint Tea Latte Taste Like?

Its minty freshness balanced well with the richness of the chocolatey flavor and subtle sweetness. It’s decadent while still being delicate, and sweet, and producing a lingering coolness.

It's a very simple but incredibly delicious drink recipe, the perfect way to enjoy a chilly evening.

This chocolate mint tea is also a great healthier, lower-sugar, and lower-calorie hot cocoa or peppermint mocha alternative! It still provides you with energy from the black tea and cocoa, all without the coffee crash. And there are so many more incredibly powerful chocolate mint tea benefits!

The Chocolate Mint Tea Benefits 

  • Chocolate Hustle Tea Blend: Firstly, the tea we use for the mint tea: Wise Ape's Chocolate Hustle tea blend is a powerful blend of roasted yerba mate tea with hints of chocolate and mint, combined with adaptogenic super-herbs to support your brain naturally. This unique elixir is designed to heighten your focus, energy, and clarity.
  • Mint: Mint is an incredible anti-inflammatory and is rich in phytonutrients which are enzymes that help with digestion. This makes mint a great herbal remedy for easing stomach problems and calming stress and anxiety.
  • Cocoa: Cocoa is chock-full of powerful antioxidants flavanols, a type of flavonoid that participates in protecting your heart from heart disease and improving blood flow.
  • Maple Syrup: This sweetener might be quite high on the glycemic index and very high in calories and sugar, but when unprocessed (not like that syrup you drown your pancakes in) maple syrup does contain a moderate amount of vitamins and minerals, including zinc and calcium, and is one of the most natural sources of sugar out there. Of course, we want to moderate our use of it because of the high sugar.

Amazing… this chocolate mint tea is rich with chocolate mint tea benefits and will make for a perfect hot and cozy chocolatey mint drink. Get ready to get your mint and chocolate fix in a healthy and delicious way!
