12 Tasting Notes
How you rate this tea depends completely on how you intend to use it. It’s pure peppermint, so unless you truly enjoy that flavor in large, strong doses, you are not going to rate this tea at 100%. However, the leaves have plenty of flavor and are high quality, producing a strong tea. In that, they’re perfect. I use this more like medicine than I do something delicious to drink, because it works like wonders on my sinuses and any stomach aches I have.
They are totally right about when you should drink this. In fact, I can barely let a warm, rainy day pass without a cup of this stuff. Jasmine green is the first tea I’ve ever had that genuinely compliments a type of precipitation. TeaSource’s Jasmine is lovely for a cup, but too aromatic for me to drink more than one or (sometimes) two.
This is a confusing blend for me, because it smells amazing both dry and when it’s steeped. Small sips produce an average taste with confusing notes. Anything larger is bitter and makes my tongue hurt on contact. I didn’t know I could get depressed drinking black tea, but apparently you can when you don’t like it.
