This was another sampler that I received from Lelias’ Tea Ware.

The leaves in the tin are neatly rolled & polished green tea; when the lid is removed the smell of the mint hits you at once; a deep breath, and yet a deeper one conjuring winter, a cold day and wanting for a hot cup of warmth. If on a hot day this tea would be most welcoming in that it would add coolness with the freshness found in the mint leaves.

This tea is smoothly rich in body and mildly nutty. It is well blended with refreshing peppermint leaves, making me think of sweet mint; not that of an after dinner drink but the kind of mint one adds to liquor enhancing the flavor which in turn enlivens the palette.

Teas characteristic: Smooth, mildly nutty
Overall tasting: refreshing cup of peppermint tea soothing and cleansing all.

I liked this tea because the peppermint leaves can be fully savored all the while rendering for a luxurious cup of tea. I will have with next cup of this tea a York peppermint patty; since now I am realizing this could be what I mean for an over all taste.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
