I like minty teas. I like smokey teas. I love this minty smokey tea!

I must admit that the first time I made it I over steeped by two minutes, and the lapsang souchong overwhelmed the mint. The next cup I watched with greater care, and the result was a delightfully minty tea with plenty of smokey notes. The mix of smoke and mint is delicious, and the tea has a very smooth quality that makes me want to continue to sip and enjoy. This is the tea I’ll have in my mug the next time it snows. Sipping on a cup of this while tucked under blankets and watching the snow fall is my idea of winter perfection. (Note that my idea of a perfect winter involves not going outside!)

Glad you’re enjoying this, Veronica! :)

It’s great, and the multiple infusions make it that much better. Now I have my eye on the mint chocolate chip sample you sent… :)

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
