Sample sipdown! This sample courtesy of Laurent at Nina’s Paris.
The dry leaves are so small they look like fannings. Some time in hot water, though, and the leaves unfurl, showing themselves to be a lovely green leaf. The tea has a delicate minty scent. There is a nice dry mouthfeel to this. As for the flavor, the mint is present but not overwhelming. Actually, it’s a bit light for my taste. I like this better cold – the coolness lends some oomph to the mint.
Overall, glad to have tried it but I wouldn’t buy it myself. It’s a good tea but there are other mint teas I like more.
