After seeing Franks flavor of the week, White Chocolate Grasshopper Honeybush, all I have had on my mind is thin mints, candy cane ice cream and buttermints. These were all on my mind as I was browsing Adagio’s new store in Naperville, IL. The store looks amazing btw!

I found this jem in a section of custom blends and after sniffing the leaves, I had to have it. The leaves smelled like everything I’d been envisioning in my head. I grabbed samples of several other teas, and a few larger bags of tea, but this was THE tea I had to have tonight.

This blend is very creamy and mint tasting. Like those delicious after dinner mints that just melt in your mouth. The aroma is fresh mint and vanilla. It is naturally sweet and leaves a tingle on the tongue. I’m loving it!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 30 sec

This sounds so good! I love the sound of thin mints (I think I’m having a craving!). I might give this a try. Its too bad I made an order yesterday otherwise I’d have added this to my order!

All things mint have been on my mind as well…this sounds yummy!! Now to convince myself that I really shouldn’t drive that far just to get tea…I really want to go there, though…

Well if you ever come, we should meet up, Rachana too! I know they plan on opening another store in the chicagoland area. Hopefully soon they will branch out and open in other states? I know that’s a long time to wait. I love how they have the teas displayed. You can see and smell any that you choose, and they have hot water at 3 different temps available for making a cup of hot or iced tea of any of the 190something teas. The girls working today were very helpful, and they use the loyalty program in the store (every 100 pts gets you $10). I think I will go there every time I am near that city.

oOTeaOo-I can send you a sample of the tea if you would like to try it. If so, take a look at my cupboard and I can send you samples of any teas I have as well. Just let me know. I’m always open to swapping/sharing!

Jaime

A meetup would definitely be more incentive to come up!

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.
