Mixed this with Almond milk. Didn’t add anything since I wanted a baseline for how the mint and nut dairy mixed. Peppermint was still strong, but almost perfectly muted. I can’t wait to try this with some caramel! Mmmmm
Lowering the rating a smidge. Gnight y’all!

Need to try this one sometime

It’s a good one!
One day I’ll grab the reg mint to compare.

teataku

Huh. I’ve never thought I might be intrigued by the thought of mixing peppermint and almond, but your description has done just that!

Indigobloom

I loooove my almond milk! trouble is it drowns out most tea flavours. except this one :P

teataku

Yeah, I can imagine. If there’s one flavoring that I’d guess would be strong enough to overpower almost anything else, it’d be peppermint. xD

MegWesley

I don’t remember if you were the one that tried the almond matcha or not, but I’m sure that the almond milk wouldn’t cover up the almond matcha flavor!

CHAroma

Aww, I should have read this first and made it with almond milk. It’s too potent for me with just water.

Indigobloom

MegWesley, you are so right!! oh man I cannot wait to order some more matchas :P

Indigobloom

CHAroma, awww sorry about that, I should have warned you!

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!
