I was reeeally excited about this one. Besides black tea, peppermint is one of my great loves. Real, honest-to-god peppermint. Chad at Chad’s Chai was gracious enough to send me five very generous samples with my cup infuser, he even allowed me to pick out which ones I wanted! I was like a kid in a candy shop. No, seriously, it was shameful how excited I was.

This was the first one I opened… and man it was heavenly. I’ve had lots of peppermint teas before, but nothing ever this strong. I sniffed and sniffed, and sneezed, and sniffed some more. I’m not sure if I should be admitting this addiction to the internet.

I used boiling water. I like my peppermint strong, and boiling certainly didn’t do any harm, save made me wait a bit longer to drink it, or, should I say, allowed me to burn myself sooner. The brew smelled as one would imagine, minty angels wafting into my nostrils on gently unfurling, leafy wings.

The description is very correct in that this tea has a very full body, and is really designed for the mint lover. I can see myself drinking this year-round as it is THE best mint tea I have ever tasted, but I can see some only purchasing this for colder months or as flu relief. This will certainly be a future purchase.

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.
