A looong time ago this sample came my way via none other than Dexter3657. Although I do enjoy mint teas I wasn’t in the mood for it back then. And then, well, we all know what happens to samples if we don’t drink it shortly after we get them.

I have been going through a mint phase. Santa’s secret, read my lips, then yesterday I went to Starbucks with a friend and opted for tea (a first for me. Green tea frap doesn’t count). I had the Tazo refresh which is a mint tea with tarragon — of which I tasted none, since we are on the subject.

This tea was sorta “meh” at the beginning. I thought it was herbal and found out it wasn’t only AFTER I poured boiling water over it. Realized mistake quickly enough, pulled out the sachet, dumped an ice cube in the mug and put the sachet back in. Saved the cup for sure. No bitterness.

At first I didn’t think it was much like a mojito. I actually didn’t think it was like a mojito even later. It’s hard for any tea to mimic alcoholic beverages. But as the cup cooled I could pick up the lime behind the mint. I only added a bit of honey to this. I did try a few sips without but it wasn’t happening for me so I fixed it.

All in all, a good mint tea. Conveniently packaged in sachets, I so would stock this if it was more available to me. As in, go and buy when I want, not pay for shipping and wait weeks for it to come to me. Because, you know, I’m flighty. My desire for peppermint might have changed again by then.

Many thanks to Dexter3657. Luckily for me she hates mint.

I’m pretty sure there is more mint tea here, if you ever want some more samples…..

Sil

…pretty sure there is more of every tea at dexters place…

Well, there’s not a lot of ziploc bags left around so I might lift the ban, dex. But why would a mint hater have so much mint?

Dexter

Ummmmm, Amoda subscription, Herbal Infusions – 12 days of Christmas (apparently mint is a Christmas flavor), bonus in swap packages, samples tossed into orders….dunno – it just kind of happens….

Sil

“gee officer…i’m not sure why my house exploded under the weight of all that tea….it just kind of happened…”

Dexter

No I know exactly why that happened – people keep sending me tea….

Sil

hahahaha love you too dexter!

Cavocorax

Hmmmmm… Dexter, you want some more tea?

Sil

..i’m seriously concerned dexter will start another sil box… 1 for me…2 for her… giggling

Dexter

I love all my Steepster friends, and their generosity just keep amazing me. It is thanks to them that I have been able to try so many amazing teas. I need to up my game and start being more generous and paying it forward more….
Thank you so much for the generous offer Cavocorax, but I really couldn’t take anything off you without sending twice as much back. I think Sil has the right idea – 2 for 1 swaps… :))

Cavocorax

Hahaha. I’d be afraid of something like that. :P

Man, I love you guys. :D This is such a generous community!

Bio

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 and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

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.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
