2 Tasting Notes
The peppermint masks the white tea, unlike Snowman’s Magic Spell, where the peppermint gives more of a fresh accent. Those who are pure-peppermint tea fans might find this blend a little artificial due to the additional presence of the white tea. But overall, a relaxing blend with a pleasant, subtle aroma.
Adding more sugar might help tone down the peppermint. Do not steep for more than 3 minutes!
This is the first Yerba Maté Tea I’ve ever tried. It’s a blend of organic Maté and ‘SweetLeaf Stevia’. It also includes Licorice Pepper. It’s aroma is mildly sweet, round (with no detectable citrus notes). It doesn’t have any astringent effect(as in many green teas), but a pleasant sweet aftertase. I quite like this tea because it suffices without biscuits/pasteries. I strongly do not recommend adding sugar because that would mask the mild sweetness of the licorice/sweetleaf. I prefer having this without milk, since it’s already such a smooth blend.
Box says it’s good for two steeps, but I think only one.
*PS: I hope to try a version without the SweetLeaf Stevia. I’m not sure if the sweetness is primarily the product of the Sweetleaf or the Licorice.
