drank Moroccan Mint by The Tea Haus
1297 tasting notes

Mmmmm just what I was after! For some reason, I’ve been all about the mint this week, and I am loving it!
Lately, because I’m trying to drink down my stash and I can’t waste too much time at work, I’ve been making two types of tea right when I get in. Sometimes even three, and then I ice one for the afternoon.
This one, I decided to ice… but when I tried the first steep, it was a little too much so I stuck the second one in the fridge instead and ohmygoodness was it ever perfect!!!
Something about the mint and green tea was so refreshing, and not bitter at all. I think that was partly because one serving is half the normal leaf used and the mint spruces it up so well.
For the iced version, I did add a tiny bit of agave. It really made a difference.
Then for the fourth and final steep I iced it again. That one was decent but nothing spectacular. It kept me going during my workout, and sane. There was a promo even at the gym, with a live lounge singer/“BB King” band and hired actors dressed up like famous celebrities. There was a puppet show (Bert n Ernie), Austin Powers, Cary Grant, Dr Evil/mini-me. Some free food.
Ugh, it was impossible concentrating! So yeah… I was counting on that tea to keep me focused! Concentrating on squats and dead-lifts with a live cover of the theme song from Titanic running in the background does not bode well for my poor overwhelmed brain.
Anyhow! I’m off to bed. Circuit training tomorrow, so the place had better be quiet…
BTW, my notices are MIA. It brings me to that error page. So my apologies for anything I miss!

LOL Any chance your gym is Goodlife? My gym totally had a party atmosphere today, and the pump class I went to (yes, with squats/dead-lifts, etc.) was a high-energy release class with three instructors…

YUP!!! It’s Goodlife allright! my instructor was so mad, it was entertaining watching him fume lol
Oh and they had girls in gala dresses at the door handing out free passes.
Did you go yesterday? I hear that all the locations were doing it. (not sure if that applies to just TO or not though)

Kittenna

Yes, I had gone to the gym on that same day. It was some sort of birthday party? I had some yummy free food on my way out, but didn’t participate in anything else. My gym’s pretty small, and women-only.

Indigobloom

it was a party all right, but I can’t say for who! Lol
we had free food as well

Kittenna

33rd anniversary party. Apparently I still have the free pass they gave me to hand out. Oops.

Indigobloom

wow, if that’s what they do for 33, I wonder what’s in store for 35, or 40!

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
