drank Plantation Mint by Bigelow
55 tasting notes

I probably shouldn’t like this tea: it’s flavored, it’s bagged, and it’s title evokes nostalgia for a slave owner sipping tea on his porch in the antebellum South. But somehow the spearmint works. It lifts this tea above most bagged varieties. It’s quite sweet too; and comforting. Perhaps in much that same way that many Americans are comforted by slave-era stereotypes of African Americans.
