In the spirit of getting back to mindful tea drinking, I bought myself a cute little teapot and matching cups. My other teapot is huge, so I rarely get to use it (as I’m surrounded by coffee drinkers!) But this one is small, so that even when I’m having tea on my own it can feel like a special occasion. Since the set is a peppermint color, I thought it would be appropriate to try it with this tea first!
This is a perfect bedtime tea for warm summer nights. It’s comforting but the mint makes it refreshing as well. The marshmallow root adds a nuance that other mint chocolate teas lack, kind of a fluffy or creamy undertone. When I smelled the empty cup afterwards, it smelled like sweet butter….mmm! It’s not very chocolatey, but it’s a nice treat compared to plain peppermint tea. Overall, it was a solo tea party success!
