drank Peppermint by Twinings
812 tasting notes

A co worker got this on sale and made a point to give me a bag, since she knows I’m really into tea. I’m not going to lie, part of me was elated to be known for my habit! :)

This wasn’t bad, really. The peppermint smell was evident the second the bag hit the hot water. The water began to darken immediately and I actually should have removed the teabag rather than let it stay in the cup because it got pretty darn strong….luckily mint is a pleasant flavor!

Not bad, but I wish it had actually had some tea leaves in it – could have used that caffeine yesterday…

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
