“Like drinking a fresh forest breeze” says the description, and yes, that’s exactly how this feels.
I say feels, because this tea goes beyond taste. Maybe it’s the Canadian in me, but there is something very evocative about these flavours. Having just spent the weekend in the Rocky Mountains, snowshoeing around an icy glacial lake, I feel like I’m in the exact right mood to be drinking this minty, foresty brew.
I love how this looks in my glass teapot. It’s not particularly easy to measure, but I figured I’d just add some pinches and hope for the best. It’s hard to get a good mix of all the pretty things, given that some of the smaller bits tend to settle to the bottom of the bag, but I scrounged around for a bit of everything, and again, hoped for the best.
I see no hint of the pink tinge hinted at in the description, but the very clear, light brew is appealing nonetheless. The scent is like smelling a forest through a LifeSavers Wint-o-mint candy. I like it. And the flavour is very light. Less minty than I expected, but delicate and tingly. I like it.
It’s not for everyday. But it makes me feel Canadian and outdoorsy, and I like that.
