I had been looking for this tea this year and had trouble finding it. Found it on an end cap today and snagged it, should’ve grabbed two!… but wasn’t sure how’d I’d like it.

It seems like I may have had some of this around last year, but not sure what happened to it. Living in Indiana, we get the occasional mouse in the house.. eeks!!… and I’m thinking it was in the drawer I had to discard a few items from. Luckily we are good at getting rid of the rascals!

I’ve been eager to try this again, but somewhat skeptical since I don’t care too much for iced peppermint tea- much prefer spearmint! I’m also not a big fan of green teas, unless there are other flavors to blend with it, as in this tea. It smells nice while it steeps and makes me think Christmas in a cup. It is a nice change to my usual favs of cinnamon &/or spice. It gives that minty coolness in your mouth which is a good contrast to the warmth of the tea as I sip. Warm, minty (not so much as candy cane, but just enough), and a touch of sugar to make it yummy. I’ll have to have another cup!

Bio

37 yr old wife and mother who left her day job to take care of our son. Now running a property management business with my hubby.

I grew up on Lipton -hot w/milk & sugar, Lipton iced w/fresh spearmint and sugar, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime … Don’t criticize.

I came across Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy out of chance and it spurred my interested in trying new teas because it was a flavor I had never had before in a tea. I’m now new to the world of loose leaf teas and looking forward to learning what I like as I journey through some new flavors. Hubby has always enjoyed the occasional cup when we’ve been out and about at restaurants.. now we will find out what good teas are really all about! On with the adventures!

Still relatively new to loose leaf, but I’m learning… Coconut, cinnamon, chai, chocolate, mint, & pineapple are just a few of the flavors I enjoy. I have found that I can do green teas so long as there are other flavors as well and it isn’t the primary flavor. I have only found 1 rooibos blend that was too woodsy for me, most of the time the base is hidden or blends well enough w/flavored versions for my liking. I’m beginning to enjoy fruit teas more and more. I occasionally like a straight black tea.

Hubby likes milder flavors, any base, berry flavors, sweet aromas, sometimes tart, and or floral, and chocolate to my surprise! Almost the opposite of me.. go figure!

My 8 year old just took interest and loves root beer.. so far Butterbeer is a hit, but we haven’t tried any root beer or cola teas yet.. soon thanks to the Marvelous MissB for sending some samples. He enjoyed Winter Nog (Della Terra) recently, but turned away something else I gave him.. darn if I can’t remember now what it was!
