Another sample tea from Nina’s! Yay, thanks Laurent :)

This is an extremely clean tasting spearmint gunpowder green. Just enough mint to be cooling and satisfying but not overwhelming. I’m not normally a big fan of spearmint (I tend to prefer peppermint) but this tastes so clean and natural. The spearmint is really good in it! This is perfect after the spicy Indian food I had for lunch. I imagine it would be wonderful iced, too. I didn’t add sugar or anything but this tea tastes nice and sweet. It re-steeped really well too, and was even sweeter the 2nd time around!

Yes, this was quite good! I prefer spearmint in my Moroccan Mint style teas, and this one was just minty enough with being biting. I saved the leaves but haven’t made my second steep yet. I also loved it with no additions. It really doesn’t need sugar, you are right!

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
