Needed something minty but was looking for something a little stronger on the tea side, so I decided to try this (it won because it had the gunpowder). This smells minty and tastes a bit minty but I think I over steeped it as it is quite a dark, almost amber, liquor, dark at least for a green based tea. I don’t think I’ll try a second steep of this one. Although maybe I will…maybe it will lose some of the POW BAM strength and sweeten up a tad. I’ll stick with vanilla mint.

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
