drank Mint by Second Cup
256 tasting notes

I was sure Mint was going to be the one good tea in the Second Cup gift box of tea I received as a gift. Alas, Second Cup has figured out how to ruin mint tea too—by adding chamomile. I hate chamomile, and It actually overpowered the mint flavour. I think I’ll be giving the rest of the Mint tea bags away; they’ll probably just go stale in my tea drawer. :P

I’ll have to try it sometime. Maybe I can score a sample somewhere so I don’t have to commit to buying a bunch that I might not like. Thanks!

I do have a David’s Tea in town; I just haven’t made it there yet because it’s at the opposite end of the city to me. Now I’ll definitely have to visit soon. :)

Bio

I’ve been in love with tea since I discovered the awesomeness of loose-leaf tea about four years ago.

In general, I prefer black, green, oolong, and matcha teas. I’m not a big fan of flavoured teas, but every so often I come across one I like. I also like peppermint, but that’s about it for tisanes.

I recently tried matcha for the first time, and it’s seriously growing on me.

My favourite tea accessory is my chasen holder, hence my profile pic, and my favourite teaware is the shudei kyusu I got from Den’s Tea for 99 cents. I use it both for cooling water and steeping tea. Probably the best 99 cents I’ve spent. :)
