For having so many roses in this, this is surprisingly minty, though not overwhelmingly so. It’s pretty, just like the leaves. Smells minty but soft.

Taste-wise, it’s soft and a little minty and a little floral. Not overly complex but things blend nicely and there’s a good fresh mint flavor left in my mouth after each sip. I definitely prefer this softer mint flavor than something that is so overwhelmingly mint. I enjoy the softness created by the jasmine and rose (though I can pick out the rose a little more but maybe that’s only because I can see the roses in the dry leaf). Sometimes I get tartness from things with mint in it – like an aftertaste of cooked greens. But this one doesn’t have that and I appreciate that.

Shared some with the husband – he’s been craving mint lately – and he gives it “a high 4, maybe even a 5” star rating (of 5) saying that it’s smooth with a minty, flowery smell and a nice, creamy mint taste.

This has SO many flavors in one. Interesting! I’m kind of curious how sweet and mint go together. I guess I’ll have to try the Vanilla Mint in the GM box to find out!

Even though there are lots of things put into this, the florals all combine into one big ole taste that gives a softness that verges on creamy and the mint gives a nice “whuaa” feeling… and honestly, not tasting all that much tea-ness in it. I think it is there because the floral and mint aren’t that overpowering but I just don’t have enough experience with whites to pick it out. But yeah, lots of flavors!

Is ‘whuaa’ a new official tea tasting term? ;)

Haha! I seriously spent at least three minutes trying to figure out how to spell that minty feeling I get in my mouth – like I’m emanating mint tinglies. That’s as close as I could get (and the hubby was looking at me like I was nuts, so I had to stop).

I’m not usually a huge fan of rose tea, but I think I could get on board with this one because of the mint. Picture’s gorgeous, too. [Because that’s important.]

Also, I love how this has evolved into Auggy + sometimes DH’s thoughts.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
