drank Pure Mint by Twinings
358 tasting notes

Another sample from Twinings. It seems like I will never get through all of these teabags. I like minty teas, so this one looked good. I was a little let down by it. There’s an odd earthy/musty note in the black tea, but it does disappear when milk and sugar are added. The mint flavor is just a little thin tasting, and reminds me slightly of toothpaste. Overall, it’s not a terrible tea but I won’t be purchasing a box of it.

-Standard teabag with a tag.
-Teabag smells faintly of sweet mint. Tea liquor aroma is of fresh mint with a hint of black tea.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy dark brown color.
-Slightly earthy flavor with a minty finish. Cooling mint aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Unpleasant earthy taste with a refreshing mintiness. Mint flavor is a little thin.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
