100 tasting notes

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.

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
