I received this tea as a wedding gift. Interestingly, this company isn’t even on Steepster yet! Looks like a local tea company in my area.

So,I never buy these kinds of herbal teas – chamomile I drink only when I have a sick stomach, but otherwise I’m not into. But hey, it was a gift.

DRY: I smell licorice, I think. Oh man, I’m undecided about this.

STEEPED: Smells like mint, chamomile. Herbally!

TASTE: Chamomile mellow and light citrus bitterness and spice that also hits the throat with a zingy mint aftertastes that goes down the throat.

COMMENTS: Hmmmm. I like the minty throat zing – a great contrast to the slight bitterness. I’d drink this again, but not purchase as it’s not my kinda thing.

Annoyingly, I can’t find an ingredients list for this tea, never mind, it’s not on the page where you can purchase the tea, but on link before listing the teas.

Oh crap, this had white tea in it, I totally had it pegged for an herbal, I didn’t want any caffeine. Sigh.

edit, whoa they sell some weird mugs http://www.thelooseteas.com/servlet/the-STYLE-cln-Funky/Categories

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
White 2 Tea
Steep City Teas
DAVIDsTea
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
