Why oh why did they put black tea in this? Unlike some of the reviewers here, I wanted the mint and didn’t read the package closely enough to realize that there was black tea in this. so sad! :( I bought the box to share with my friends while on a vacation since I didn’t bring my own teas.

I didn’t know what to do with this. I always drink my blacks teas with milk and sugar, especially those of lesser quality, like the supermarket bagged kind. But I like my mint pure and strong with no additives. This tea suffers from split personality disorder. You should be either robust, dark and earthy or cool, light and refreshing. Pick one, dang it!

Moral of the story? Always read the labels clearly! or Bring your own tea!

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
