At first I loved the taste of the tea, but then I had the aftertaste and it was an awful sensation. The aftertaste was caused by the ginger. A good tea for when you are sick.

Just tried this tea while looking out the window at winter storm Nemo here in New York… I do like mint teas, but what really makes this tea good is the complimenting spicy ingredients. It almost has a chai kinda feel to it and I like that. I’m not sure this will be a “staple” tea for me, but I’m glad I have 50g of it. ;)
My husband bought this for me along with others to try. I steeped this for 3 minutes with water probably a bit too hot, but definitely not boiling.
I enjoyed the gentle and warm flavours of cardamom and mint. I wouldn’t drink it everyday though. I think this would be good iced on a warm and humid summers evening.
#16. Wow this smells bad. It might just be me but the smell put me off right away and I’m struggling to describe it, maybe clove? Luckily it doesn’t taste anything like it smells. Green tea and mint, that’s it. I thought it was quite boring and didn’t finish the cup.
This combo of mint and a chai-like blend is quite nice. I definitely get the first three ingredients: cardamom, ginger and peppermint. Not really getting the sweetness of the licorice root or fennel, but oh well. Tasty.
Oh, and I used 2 heaping tsps, rather than the 1 1/2 recommended.
