Steep Information:
Amount: 4 tsp
Water: hot spigot water
Tool: kati loose tea system (my Review here.)

Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: citrus, floral
Steeped Tea Smell: MINT, orange, lemon
Flavor: floral, mint
Body: Medium/Full

Took much MINT, bleh. That flavor overwhelmed the rest of the cup. I am not a huge mint fan unless it’s iced – and has alcohol.

This was a gift from TeaEqualsBliss, thank you.

this tea strikes me as a tea that may be enjoyed at any other time but at breakfast – you know, like an after-dinner palate refresher or something like that

I guess it goes well with mint toothpaste? either way a bit too minty for me any time of day…although maybe iced in the summer would be refreshing

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
