drank Mint To Be (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA
2374 tasting notes

Backlog: I got this as a sample a few months back when it was still a mystery tea in search of a name. It has been a few months but I remember it tasting pretty good. I recall thinking it was very reminiscient of a York Peppermint Patty. Today I saw it was released for sale as “Mint To Be”. Had I not forgot my wallet at home, I think I would have ended up heading to DAVIDs to pick some up as I recall enjoying it and would be interested to see if my impressions remain the same now that it has been a few months and a few hundred teas since I had it.

I had this cup months ago but figured I would write the tasting note now that I knew what to call it.

How do you think this compares to santa’s secret?

VariaTEA

Honestly it has been a while since I had this but I do recall really liking it. Unfortunately I don’t remember the specifics though.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
