This tea was in my first 52teas order ever and it’s still my fullest pouch. Needless to say, I’ve had a hard time getting into it. I find peppermint usually dominates the blend it’s in. I didn’t taste anything but the mint in the first steep (2 minute steep, nothing added) but the second steep (about 5 or 6 minutes, a small touch of agave) was different. Now I really get when people say things like “Oh, the second steep is the best,” about a tea.
The second steep of this made it live up to its namesake. A foggy blend of mint and marshmallow at first until a malty vanilla creeps up from out of nowhere. Spooky and refreshing.
