38 tasting notes

I am relatively new to the tea world, so I have been trying as many teas as possible just so I can get a better idea of what is out there and what I like. This tea came in the Award Winning Sampler pack from Art of Tea.

When I first opened the package and smelled it, it had a very strong, yet not overwhelming, mint aroma. It also had a bit of a floral note from the roses. Like I said above, I am new to tea, and I have not had many mint+floral teas. I was really skeptical when I made my first cup.

I boiled a pot of water on the stove (the tea is marked for 175-185F, I know), and steeped it for 3 minutes.

I let the tea cool a little bit before I took my first sip, and I was pleasantly surprised. It had a very light mint flavor with a hint of rose. This combination was delicious, and neither the mint nor the rose was overpowering. The taste and smell made me feel very relaxed.

I will definitely be purchasing more of this tea.
