A subtle smell of spearmint hit me when I opened the package, and something else that I couldn’t define.

While steeping, I could smell the spearmint and a hint of citrus…that would be the key lime. That’s the taste I got, too. Not too grassy, which is good because I don’t like too grassy. I think the something I can’t define is the essence of champagne? It’s funny, the aftertaste has some of that dryness that I get when I drink champagne. Part of why I love champagne! It could be that my palate isn’t refined enough when it comes to green teas, since I usually go for blacks and rooibos. I’ll need to work on this.

I was looking for something light, not too flavourful but not too bland, something soothing while the rain pounds the windows. This was the perfect tea for the specific moment.

Glad I could read your comments about this tea. I have some on the way and am looking forward to trying it even more!

I tried to “mojito” some tea on my own last summer by adding mint and a squirt of lime…I think I started with a dragonwell and it all ended up tasting like dirty socks. Further imagination/experimentation needed. Then again, I could just get some that someone else has perfected.
