I asked for this with my most recent order, and I’m so glad to get to try it! It smells very raspberry from the raspberry leaf, but once steeped, the mint takes center stage. The juniper berries were the next most obvious smell in the bag, and the same goes in the steeped tea.

I ate too much so something with peppermint in it was just what I was looking for. Future note to self: if you have buy one, get one free on soft pretzels, save the other pretzel or risk earlier death.

As it cools, the sweetness from the apple starts to come into play, which is nice. It feels weird to have the cooling sensation of the mint mix with the apple. I don’t think that’s something I’ve ever really had together before.

This is really good, I think in the future I would maybe get more of it. I’m going to have to make a cup of it iced too.

And now I am going to go celebrate that the Predators knocked the Red Wings out with the rest of this tea.

I also asked for this as a sample, and they sent it. However, I haven’t been brave enough to try it yet. I don’t like peppermint, and I hate gin, so the juniper won’t likely agree with me either. I was just so darn curious!

I don’t like gin either, Krystaleyn, but I bought a blend once with juniper berries in it because the rest of it sounded so good. I didn’t find them to be gin-y at all, actually, just kind of herby. I think it depends on the blend (obviously), but I was pleasantly surprised.

Ooh, that makes me much more interested in trying it! Although… it also has peppermint ickiness. But still.
