I definitely catch the licorice and cinnamon in this… which I thought was unusual for a mint tea. But I didn’t get the vanilla much at all.
I’m a huge mint fan. Spearmint, peppermint, wintermint, whatever. I love it. Not so convinced I love this tea. It steeped to a dark color almost like coffee. It smelled almost… heady, but with an after-taste of mint. I can attest that when I first opened the tin, it totally hit me as “smelling like Christmas”. Once brewed, I didn’t mind it, and I finished my mug, but it didn’t leave me with the refreshing sensation of my usual favorite mint teas. And while I typically love cinnamon too, I’m not so sure I like the combination of cinnamon with mint. I can’t say I’ll buy this tea. I have too many other favorite mint teas!
This is my day #3 of the David’s Tea “24 Days of Tea” advent calendar.
