Standard peppermint stuff. HOWEVER. :) I like to make a piping hot brew of this, and after pouring it in my teacup, I add a splash of rice milk and a bit of palm sugar. DIVINE!!!! The rice milk creams up the brew, while the palm sugar gives the liquid depth and a subtle layer of sweet earthy smokiness. Sometimes it’s not the tea so much as how you doctor it up. When I’m turning to an herbal break from the caffeine, this is now my first stop. :)

Bio

Intergalactic tea traveler. Will stop this side of the Milky Way for piping hot black tea in a fine bone china cup with milk and sugar. Add a tea sandwich and some sweet morsels and I just might stay a while. Music, Photography, Cooking, Art, Spirituality, and the Paranormal are preferred topics of conversation.

Tea Preferences: ALWAYS loose leaf over bagged fannings or god-forbid, dust. I do bag my own loose leaf, and will resort to pre-bagged black or herbal if I have to. Black tea is always taken with milk and sugar, and herbal may escape the dairy and sweet to thrive on it’s own in the cup on occasion.

Allow yourself the possibility of a life without bagged fannings or dust – and open your heart to all that – that is loose leaf. You’ll immediately discover where ALL the flavor has escaped to. It’s like a universe of flavor you never knew existed. ;)
