I decided I like how Tazo does mint, and since Stash was originally created by the same guy, I just figured.
I wanted the set—Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning—but no place seems to sell Christmas Morning, and only 1/5 seems to sell Christmas Eve (or at some point did, as the ‘out of stock’ signs tell me).
When I opened the box I got hit by a STRONG mint odour and was initially very worried. But it mellowed out when brewed, and sniffing it, it smells of a mellow mix of orange, cinnamon and nutmeg, with just a very small hint of mint.
It tastes of a mellow mint. I could have done five minutes, I think; I decided to test the centre of the steep-range the box gives. Just so I could simplify my next cup—go higher, or go lower. Mostly mint, with a bit of orange and almost some spices. It’s nice to curl up with.
