This tea is very difficult to describe. At first sip, it doesn’t seem like it should work. Peppermint and almond don’t go together! And they certainly don’t go with earl grey green! What??

It’s odd because it actually does. The almond adds a hint of sweetness to the more exuberant peppermint/bergamot battle. I’m going to have to order a sample of adagio’s earl grey green just to figure out what’s going on with this tea, haha. The bergamot is barely there, but the green tea base is mild and almost a bit nutty.

Everytime I had a cup of this, it just called attention to itself – sort of like a meditative experience. In the end, this was relaxing and a great drink for afternoons.

I didn’t really like this cold, but it’s really relaxing and refreshing at room temperature.

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
