I drank this the other morning, because on a rare occasion- coffee sounds too thick in the morning. But I enjoy caffeine. So I chose this little buddy.
I prepared it the way I prepare everything. Splenda + Creamer.
I have to say, it was a good way to start the day. I didn’t really feel the energizing effectiveness (as I never do) but the taste was pleasantly strong, even with creamer in it. And I kept thinking I smelled campfire… but this was MATE not lapsang souchong… so maybe I imagined it. But I enjoyed it. :)
I think it was the Christmas spirit (sorry if i am being politically incorrect :P ) that got me to buy this tea. It has a lovely mint flavor, and tastes more like a candy cane, or peppermint stick than a tea. I know it is a bit unorthodox (you can yell at me later) but i’m actually stirring this with a peppermint stick not, with just a touch of sugar, and it is great! Overall, a great tea to get you in the “Holiday” ( :P ) spirit.
Great tea! I got into peppermint during the summer when I wanted hot tea that was soothing to a sore throat but cooling at the same time. The mint gives a “cool finish,” the flavor is wonderful, and it smells so good! I tend to just leave the bag in until the cup is gone, but I like my tea pretty strong.
A great tea if you are careful about steeping time. Gets way too strong if you leave the bag in for too long. Bags don’t “age” well (so, if it takes you a long time to get through a box, I would advise buying it for autumn/winter, when apple spice is in the air, so you’ll use it up quicker). Still, one of my top teas. Smells great! Someday, I’ll have to try steeping it in cider instead of water…
