drank Cucumber Mint by Tea Forte
35 tasting notes

Upon opening the package I could smell a lovely fruit aroma. I had not yet read the full description, so I was confused because I didn’t know there was blueberry included. As with all green teas, hell, most teas I drink, I oversteep. The blueberry and cucumber really take the forefront here, with the green tea and mint giving only subtle notes in the back. The fruitiness is not overwhelming, however, but it is very present. As a big fan of mint teas, I would have liked to see the mint take on a larger role, but this blend is by no means bad. This was a very enjoyable cup.

Bio

I have a huge affection for malty, Chinese reds with rich, sweet flavors that soothe the throat and calm my nerves.

Yezi Tea is my favorite online vendor. Joy’s Teaspoon, Teavivre, and JusTea are also all-around-excellent.

I occasionally enjoy hot dragon well, but do not often drink green teas. I do enjoy mint, rose, lychee and chamomile, however. Rooibos is quite off-putting to my taste buds, and I am very wary of spray flavors, but not above trying them.

Other than tea I enjoy dabbling in watercolor, my cats and dogs, the occasional rescue animal, fantasy mmos and turn-based rpgs, and arm-chair linguistics.
