There wasn’t any instructions on how long to brew this tea so I put the bag in for 3.5 minutes. I might play around with that some more. The mint flavour is a bit overwhelming although there’s a distinct (and quite nice) fruity-floral aftertaste.

This one is so-so, I can taste both the green and black but I don’t think mixing these two types of teas really does it any favors. If anything you sort of loose the distinct flavours of each one.

Should I add milk to this? The tea is a little bitter without, but adding it to a green tea is a no no.

These guys get major points for using real mint leaves and cocoa nibs instead of taking the easy way out and just using the mysterious (and probably artificial) ‘flavouring’. It smells amazing, both the dry tea and while it was steeping, and it makes a delicious, flavourful cup.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
