This is one of the loose teas I got when I visited the NYC store. It always bugs me that the picture is of the tea bag, but maybe there is a reason :)

Yum! I think it’s super awesome that sTEAp Shoppe doesn’t use “flavor enhancers” as they call them. Not that that’s a big issue in this tea, but something that I just find kinda of cool!

Anyway, on to the tea. I love green tea and mint, be it peppermint or spearmint. Either works! This one has peppermint but not a overpowering amount (which is really easy to do with peppermint). Not sure what the ginkgo brings, I’d have to see what it tasted like on it’s own. The stevia adds a nice sweetness, but again not too much. Nice cuppa. :)

Tea: 2 tsp
Water: ~16 oz
Additive: None

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Glad you enjoyed it! The Ginko is a fairly docile herb flavor that seems to do more for combining the other flavors than punching out it’s own. The use of it was geared to reviving you since Ginko is known for it’s ability to help memory. Caffeinated green tea , the alertness peppermint can bring combined with the memory boosting of Ginko. It was made for a brisk morning wake up to get through a tough day at work.

Finally finished up the sample. :( Definitely want more of this!

Edit:
Ah! Totally thought I had reviewed this before! I thought I wrote down stuff somewhere but I can’t find it. Anyway, this is fantastic. It’s like s’mores over a fire. :) I’d write more but I really drank this quickly, I’ll just have to wait until I buy some. Very good!
