drank Mint To Be (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA
627 tasting notes

I got a small amount of this yesterday, along with the Lovebirds mug…which I adore.

I think I might prefer Santa’s Secret a little more because the mint is more candy-like, as in candy canes, but this was a decent cup of mint tea, since I’m not especially fond of mint teas. The mint does dominate the tea, but I think I can taste what I perceive to be the coconut. I think the coconut might tone the mint down just a wee bit, and make it a little less sweet and overpowering. But I’m not sure. I made this with milk and sugar, but I may try it without the milk on a later steeping/ I’ve got 16g of this to play with.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Yeah, from memory, I swear Santa’s Secret is creamier and more candy cane-like.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
