Combined 3 tsp. of this with 3 tsp. of Upton’s spearmint in 500 ml. water in my Breville. The results tasted more lemon grass then spearmint so I’m logging it here.

This reminds me a lot of I Love Lemon by Bigelow. Which, while I like lemon, reminds me of being sick (since that’s the only time I drink I Love Lemon), so that’s not pleasant, though it’s not the tisane’s fault.

But overall, I wanted something warm, and without caffeine, and soothing – and this fit the bill.

Boiling 8 min or more

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. "
