On the nose, mint and cardamom. I was initially going to go with mint only but after taking a whiff of my cardamom spice jar I revised. :) I urge you to try if in doubt.

Though I rarely would pick peppermint as a tea, it is the only tea I would consider having when I’m in the mood for Moroccan inspired food. Also if you’re into movies, watch “Cairo Time”. if your not reaching for your mint tea stash at some point during the movie, well, you can call me an ignorant fool.

With lots of sugar or agave, as a hot beverage it’s nothing short of delicious. I tried it iced just last night and was surprised at how poorly it faired. Mint was amplified for me to the point of unpleasantness. Did not finish the iced version despite the shot of booze i threw in.

Drink this hot and sweet.

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician, I’m a chef and a wine lover with a trained palate but find that I lack the linguistic prowess for tea tasting notes. Now there’s something to learn!

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.
