Recent Tasting Notes
I have never really dove into minty teas. I have had a couple, and tried many teabags before going to full leaf teas. My general impressions with most are not minty enough.
You would want to have this refreshing experience, like say taking an Altoids mint. Some are even clever enough to mix chocolate flavoring in for an after dinner experience.
The aroma of both the leaves in the canister and while steeping reminded me of mint teabags. There is a more dulled minty scent, less refreshing than I had hoped. This is slightly worrisome.
The initial few sips remind me of a lighter black tea, but then surprises when the minty freshness sneaks from behind.
It’s more of an understated freshness, nice and cool and mild. With a bit of rock sugar it’s a great calming late afternoon tea.
I was surprised to find this at Save-On last night, as I did not expect to find any loose-leaf tea there. A whole line of Nourish Tea was in the tea isle just waiting for me to buy.
I didn’t really expect a lot from this tea, as it would be a typical breakfast tea. The first sip about ten minutes after steeping wasn’t great, somewhat too bitter, and with most typical breakfast teas I find the taste of orange pekoe quite bland.
I let it cool for another ten minutes and gave it another sip. Not bad second time around, less bitter.
It still wasn’t anything special, and typical orange pekoe doesn’t sit well with me very long, but with more sugar and some milk, this tea just might be a little more.
This is a solid black tea. The leaves have a rich aroma which I love. Be careful not to add too many leaves though, the tea can get bitter very quickly so the amount of tea leaves you add is crucial! I like drinking it black and straight up so maybe adding milk would make it less bitter.
Recently I made Earl Grey Gin! It was amazing. I left the tea leaves in the Gin for over 24 hours so it did end up bitter. I’m going to try it again and steep it for a few hours instead of overnight next time but still a great overall flavor! It tasted like unsweetened iced tea. I’m excited to continue perfecting a recipe over the summer!!
