I love spearmint, so I was very much looking forward to trying it out of my Kusmi Tea Essentials box. I was blown away by the smell when I opened the bag — it smells sweet and spearminty and, just like another person commented, it really does smell like spearmint gum. It’s a sweet and delicate mint smell.

It tastes more like green tea than spearmint, although the mint flavor is present. The taste is different from what I was expecting — it’s very mild. I like this tea, but I have not made up my mind about whether I will order more. I’m enjoying my Essentials box so much that I may just buy another one of that…

EDIT: I steeped it longer the second time I used the bag and the mint flavor really came out. It didn’t get bitter even though I left the bag in!

I’m a lady who loves tea and writing online reviews. I feel like Steepster was made for me, I’m just late to the party.

I teach young kids with special needs, which I love to do. Tea keeps me happy, energized, and sane!
