The weather has been SO hot here for the past few days.. It’s the kind of weather that makes it nearly impossible to have hot tea…a dry sort of heat that lingers! I’m still not out of hot tea mode and much prefer it to any sort of iced tea. It’s night now and I can drink a cup of tea whilst in front of a fan. I have an early morning tomorrow so a decaf blend it is!

I am usually not a fan of peppermint teas… and when I do drink minty teas they are typically mixed with other things. I thought I’d give this one a try since I like SerendipiTea. They usually do a fine job with dessert teas. Sipping… this one isn’t actually all that bad! It’s got a rather floral peppermint note that is nicely toned down by the creamy vanilla. The first part of a sip actually reminds me of a swimming pool.. I can’t tell you what it is, though. Maybe it’s the scent… something that so clearly reminds me of chlorine. The tail end of the sip is the best part – smooth, minty and soft. Would I repurchase? Perhaps. I still think I owe this blend a few more cups before coming to any solid decision.
