What a nice refreshing end to a crazy week. The aromas coming from the leaves the self just had me practically sticking my nose into the carafe as the tea was steeping! The mix of mellow reshreshing green tea combined with the perfect amount of mint, wow! It just lends to a great crisp sinus opening, relaxing cup of tea. Perfect with honey or even by itself… Only one word of caution, let this little guy steep too long and you may feel like someone mixed some hot water in your toothpaste, generally a little less than a boil and a shorter steep time seems to be
Effect, enjoy!!!

On occasion, to fight off head cruds, I’ve been known to drink tea strictly to sniff, not to sip.

I’ve thought of that as a definite possibility, that’d be a good mix, some type of eucalyptus tea… Not necessarily menthol, that could be a bit to medicine-y. I’ll probably start looking for some fragrant tea for cold season. Thanks for the idea… Always looking for some reccomendations.

Just a normal guy that gave up the normal daily coffee for a healthier, more flavorful, more intrinsically complex beverage. Being a US marine and deploying on the regular makes enjoying a decent cup of tea difficult at times but shows that even the “rough” guys can enjoy a great cup of tea.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Absolutely awesome! I don’t know why i’m spending time typing about them instead of drinking!
85-89: pretty damn delicious, and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the cream of the crop.
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy and would drink again when i can find it, but more than likely will not make a second appearance except for freebies and samples.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: The unfortunate bottom category. This tea is just disgusting to me.
