So first let me say yum.
Now let’s actually get to the tasting. While browsing around the tea shop I found this deal. 4 oz for 9 bucks and it came in a tin. So naturally I pick it up and decide this little beautiful item shall be mine, and even if I don’t like it I will throw it away.
Now I open the tin and I am immediately turned off. The floral Jasmine type smell. Ugh. How I hate Jasmine. However I continue to be drawn in closer and closer thanks to the strong mint smell of the tea and the green tea appearance. I pull out my pot and measure out my serving size and I drank.. slowly. The first sip. I was confused. I was expecting more of a jasmine overtone. The second sip. I was still confused waiting for the strong overtones of jasmine to hit me. But by the third sip… I knew I was in heaven.
The mint thank god balanced the jasmine. It didn’t taste like I was chewng on a flower, but it tasted like the jasmine complimented the mint. Just like the name of the tea. The Mint was cooled by the jasmine and wow oh wow it is amazing.
The color of the tea is beautiful it is a nice green. The taste is a bit savory that will leave your mouth begging for more. Even before the tea is infused it is beautiful to look upon. The tea leaves are multiple colors and the smell coming from the tea is great.
Even if you don’t like jasmine.. try this if you love mint. It will fit well within your tea cupboard and your taste buds will scream in rejoice.
