Thank you Cavocorax for this sample.

I know I commented earlier expressing my need for ‘black tea’ but now I have a need for mint tea and this was the first one I could find. Also one of my most recently received samples.

The raw blend does have a refreshing minty smell but very mildly, but so is the sweet jasmine so it seems a fair balance.

Once steeped this tea is light yellow and has a gentle floral aroma.

Flavour is gentle and a little sweet with both ultra subtle hints of jasmine and mint. It’s very refreshing and much lighter than I expected but I think that works well in it’s favour. Also a little creamy and smooth.

All in all I think this is a success, a great palate cleanser and I bet it would make for an interesting iced tea. Thanks for sharing this with me Cavocorax :)

Profile

Bio

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
