This is a combination of some of my favorite things. I love when tea blends have extra herbs in them, so this hits my spicy/savory palette cravings just right. The hojicha green tea base is good, not too roasty and not too grassy, and supports the peppermint well. The fennel and black pepper, while subtle, are definitely present. These spices in particular make this a unique, stand-out tea that I can’t find anywhere else. The ginger and licorice are not overpowering, with the forward flavors truly being the mint itself. Hot, this tea is a relaxing, meditative blend for when you’re feeling a little sick or want an unusual herbal. Iced, might be a little strange for some (the more savory spices brewed cold are unexpected) but if you are a fan of the herbs in the blend, you’ll like it either way. Mint teas are excellent brewed cold in my opinion, or maybe I’ve just had a hot couple of days and this hit the spot.
