I got one of those Zhena’s Gypsy tea samplers from World Market, four flavors in a cute stackable metal tins, one lid. Yes, I am a sucker for packaging. But I also thought it was a good price to try four flavors of tea from a company I haven’t tried yet. It included Ambrosia Plum, Raspberry Earl Grey, Italian Chamomile, and this one. I’m done with the rest of them, so I am trying to finish this up to use the tin for other goodies!
It’s mint. I’m not a fan of hot mint drinks. The only mint I consume is breath mints. Well, and the mint leaves in a mojito, but I’m not really consuming the mint leaf, just its juices as it’s crushed in the glass for my drink. So in that sense, mojito is almost a mint tea, just cold with some added “enhancements”.
Still, I don’t like mint teas. It smelled okay, like Doublemint gum, but it tastes like mint tea to me. Even oversteeped, I didn’t taste a bitter note, and the mint aftertaste does linger on the tongue. It’s not unpleasant, I just don’t care for mint tea.
But I will say, Zhena’s has a great little container here.
