My favourite mint tea. The mixture of peppermint and spearmint is nice, and the white tea rounds the flavour out (I find pure mint teas can be one sided and ‘hollow’, for want of a better word.) Refreshing without being overpowering, I tend to make a pot of it when I’m going to be eating spicy food.

drank Go Go Goji by Teavana
8 tasting notes

I really like this tea. Sweet, fragrant, and fruity; very light without being watery and wishy-washy. Has way more lychee fruit and flavour than goji berry though, don’t go for it if you want a goji-berry hit or don’t like lychees. Suitable for multiple steeps, and the tea flavour comes through more in later batches.

Free packet from the front of a cooking magazine.

I can’t decide whether I like this or not. Citrusy, slightly sharp and mostly sweet.

Freebie that came with a cooking magazine.

I really like this. It’s minty but has a fuller flavour because of the nutmeg and chicory.

Freebie packet with a cooking magazine.

Nice fragrance. Little perfumey on the taste, but not bad for a Jasmine tea (I don’t normally drink it because I don’t really like perfumey tea.)
