drank Peppermint by Diplomat
16 tasting notes

I have been subsisting on bag teas the last few days as I’m staying with a friend, though their espresso machine has been of more interest to me! This tea was hidden way back in their pantry, and as a peppermint fan I had to try it. The first time it was uninteresting and kind of tasteless, but steeping 2 bags in one mug yielded a minty and pleasant tea. I also forgetfully over-steeped this a couple times (I’m talking like, 15-20 minutes+) and that possibly made it better.

Bio

I am a tea newbie living in New Zealand. :-) I often take my tea with milk and sweeteners as I’m not quite accustomed to the warm, hollow taste of plain tea yet. Just like coffee, though, I’m confident I’ll get there haha!

I also have no sense of smell (anosmia) so unfortunately I cannot include those in my notes.
