OMG! What the heck am I drinking!? This isn’t GREEN tea…this looks like someone took a walk on a fall day – grabbed a handful of leaves and twigs, and called it a tea! Down the drain it goes!

Why not finish up another one in my stash while I’m at it, eh!? This is so fine and so gritty and steeps very fast. Kind of tastes like coffee. Not sure how I feel about that. :X
I received this one from a tea swap. I’m told it was an “unmarked” or “not named/branded” tea from a place called Homemade Gourmet. It’s very fine leaf so much so that you would really need a heavy duty steeping device to NOT get the loose bits in your cup. Lucky for me…I have one like that. This brews VERY fast and very dark. Prior to the steep there isn’t much scent. After steeping it smells like a ‘black tea’. Neither Mojito nor Mint. It tastes like a black tea…neither Mojito nor Mint. It’s not a BAD tea…just not a flavored black tea that you can smell or taste the flavoring. OH WAIT…there’s a little mint – but it’s only part of the aftertaste.
