drank Spearmint (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
284 tasting notes

Day 65 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. More backlog catchup!!

I found that this had a… rounder, sweeter flavour than the mint did. In something like chewing gum, I might prefer it. However, in tea, I much prefer the straightforwardness of the regular mint.

I oversteeped it the first time, which brought this out more. However, I still got it a second time around (new leaves) with a much shorter steep, though to a lesser extent. Short steeps help, but I still prefer the peppermint amour.

My mom loves mojito and mint teas, and she likes both of these as well. I’m slowly beginning to understand her tea preferences, even if my own seem much broader! (My tea selection has long-surpassed hers to the point that I’m storing most of it in my room to not clog the kitchen. …eep?)
