As a paranormal investigator and a fan of the paranormal, of course I had to get this one!

Love the blend of vanilla and mint – one of my favorite combos. This is light and airy (ghost-like, if you will), but still very flavorful and tasty. The vanilla has a very marshmallow quality to it versus a vanilla bean flavor, which works well with all the other flavors you’ve got going on in this tea. I taste peppermint and spearmint, but I did just have a peppermint cuppa so perhaps I’m in that mindset… none of the flavors are overpowering, which is perfect with the veggie green tea flavor.

I’d love for this to be a permanent 52Teas flavor…or at least in the Christmas collection (hint hint, Frank). This is right up there with Pancake Breakfast. Love it! :)

I really wish I had got some of this!
You and I seem to be in similar fields!

I can send you guys samples – just PM me and I’ll get them out to you asap. :) And yes, I am a paranormal investigator – on the side. It’s not my full-time job. And it’s not something I usually talk about. But it’s that time of year!
@Azzrian – I’m intrigued. Perhaps we are kindred spirits! (Sorry, bad pun, it’s late in the day and I’ve gone about two hours without tea)

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
