drank Mint Medley by Bigelow
1408 tasting notes

I have no idea how old this is but I suspect several years. It was given to me. Steeped in a small cup to see if it survived. At first I thought it was too far gone but as it cooled the peppermint came through nicely. Really not getting the spearmint but I prefer it that way. The rosehips and hibiscus give the cup color and only the slightest touch of tart. It would be interesting to know how this tastes fresh. I probably would not buy a box but will definitely finish this one.

Hi,
I have had this tea last year in fact. It is a minty tea but not overly minted and I would not have a full box of it; mine was part of their assorted tea packs.

I am not reviewing of teas these days. Not much doing with tea. There will be no book by me on tea. No need since I am simply not good enough. I continue to be bothered by things. I feel bullied but it is imagined since a 13 years old and their mother would not do this. At times tea land feels a little like ‘Hitler land’ and I mean no disrespect to those who suffered.
I received this book: And the Pursuit of Happiness by Maira Kalman and I have gotten emails notice several time with new Steepster folks who can be asked anything and will have answer. Their company is in Pursuit of Tea; Anna and Sebastian. I wish them well. It was this email that prompted me to visit here now.

My illness is the way that I connect things together when others see not a connection or specifically so what if seeming familiar.

I gave up a lot and it has been all for nothing. No one asked that I give up lots. The tea book was all my idea as I am unemployed and keeping busy. I have allowed others to get the better of me or to top me since this is the personality that I am surrounded with. I cannot do this. I keep a blog as this does not sustain me either. I a joke; ridicule daily by folks around me. This is wrong.
I played at writing and failed but why have seeming actors with names similar to stories around me and yet not. They are employed and I am not.

I am not saying anything as usual. Happy New Year; for me it is same old in 2014.
I exist on Ramen Noodles and I’ve only realized that I am having chicken not shrimp; took this long to notice the change since I don’t read.
I trust that I have lost everyone.

seule771: Thank you for sharing yourself with us, here.

I myself only work part-time, and as such must live a very simple life.

Tea one of many low-cost ways to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, is it not?

seule771—do stay connected with us here. I have always enjoyed your very thoughtful reviews!

As to this tea—good ol’ Bigelow just doesn’t put out anything that’s not a good pantry staple. Their Plantation Mint is the caffeinated counterpart to this one and is nicely balanced, too.

Seule771 – I do apologize I missed your comment here. I have followed your reviews for a long time and have always been intrigued by the brands you find. I have not heard of most of them. Do keep bringing them to us.

SimpliciTEA – hey I haven’t seen a comment for a very long time either. I have also missed your reviews.

Gmathis – I agree, Bigelow has always been one I feel comfortable bringing home.

hehe I forget to log and when I do, you definitely don’t get anything more complicated from me than a simple yum or yuck. I leave the detailed reviews to those who speak tastebuds or tongue. I can’t do either. I can speak dog fluently and a little cat though. You should always post what you feel/think/taste or whatever comes to mind when drinking tea. I do the same thing on goodreads I can tell you when I like a book or not but I can’t do the full reviews some people do. I mostly like reading other people’s posts and try to keep track of my teas and how much I’m drinking :D
