I like peppermint…fresh in salads & also in my toothpaste (Nature’s gate Creme de Peppermint), oh, and in my Burt Bees chapstick! It’s my favorite mint, but I’m not so much of a fan of any mint in teas, & when I do have it in teas, I prefer it in iced teas. So I was somewhat skeptical of this tea, which I received as a sample from Stacy in (one of) my recent Butiki order(s).
I really haven’t had much tea today, but I also don’t want anymore caffeine, since it’s getting into the evening now. So here it is.
The flavor is fine, mint & chocolate, with a bit of a creamy texture to it. The quality of the mint is excellent, my sinuses are enjoying it. I didn’t add stevia, but I think if I had the chocolate would be more present. What I don’t like is after the first sip, my throat immediately feels scratchy. I’m not sure why.
