I have been awful about keeping up with tea logs during busy busy Christmas preparations both at work and at home. Still, today’s tea of the day from the 52teas 12 Days of Christmas made me smile and deserves a bit of my time to be written about.
This tea smells deliciously minty (spearmint) as soon as you open the packet. The dark green leaves with bits of marshmallow root are fittingly coherent with the idea of a graveyard. The little pieces of marshmallow root look strangely like gravestones amount the greenness of the tea leaves. Beautiful to look at!
While brewing, it smell quite a bit like root beer (surely due to the spearmint). The resulting light yellow cup of tea is light and refreshing. Unsweetened, the mint is the main flavor. Sweetened, the creaminess becomes more prominent and the mint takes over in the aftertaste.
I loved it! I finished my entire little pack of it today! I just might have to buy some of this before the week ends! :)
