Got a sample of this with an order. Was surprised by some of the things discovered from this.

This is not a blend, it is just ground mint leaves. If you like the smell of mint, the dry leaves are awesome. The scent is powerfully strong. The scent is present in the brewing in a very present way and carries over into the liquor.

Surprisingly, for those who are used to mint gum and candy having a sharp bite to it, this is amazingly smooth. The mint aroma is present as you drink and there is a touch of sweetness (which is even more noticeable on the resteep).

The liquor is smooth and easy drinking, not at all like our preconceptions that we often have about mint. The liquor is not minty in the ordinary sense and the flavor is mild. Cooled down, it becomes very refreshing.

The body and mouthfeel is in a light to medium range, the liquor does stick to your tongue a little giving a you a nice after taste.

All in all, a good drink and something worth keeping in the house for times when you want something different.

You drink tea. Frequently, occasionally, or passionately with abandon. You also do a lot of other things. You listen to music, read big books, or cool magazines, watch movies; all-action or avant-garde, admire pictures; maybe Rembrandt, maybe your girl. You work, you’d rather play, you talk; just nonsense or about saving the world. You might also do a lot of this stuff while drinking tea.

That is what Leafbox Tea is for. We think of it as a café, your local hang-out for fellow tea drinkers to gather and chat not only about tea, but all the other stuff you care and think about.

Sleek tea leaves are hot. No more pudgy coffee beans, tea is in.
