Wow, has my opinion changed on this one. I reach for it on rough days now, and since I’m dealing with overwhelming stress at work as well as some bs coming from here, this was definitely a day for this beauty.

I forgot about it while it was steeping, and it turned out no worse for the wear. Strong and minty and sweet, I am in love with this cup. I love, love, love licorice in teas, and this one definitely hits the spot. So glad we bought a tin. For me, it helps with my tummy aches and headaches and overall stress level…love.

I recently inherited a bag of this that my aunt didn’t like and needed to rid herself of, but I am only recently getting into mint teas and so have been avoiding trying it. But, since I can fully appreciate the stress-headache-stomach ache trifecta, and I usually tend to like the same teas as you… Me thinks this tea will be braved this week!

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
