I smelled peppermint patty when I opened the sampler pac! The aroma of the tea is not as pronounced but I sense separate aromas of vanilla and mint. The tea is sweet, slightly minty, almost syrupy, with a kick of gunpowder at the finish. The gunpowder ashiness tends to increase a bit as the tea cools. 2nd infusion—mintiness has faded somewhat but still a hint of vanilla. I’d like to try this iced—
Vanilla Mint is a smooth and refreshing blend of both green and black loose leaf tea with fragrant mint leaves and rich vanilla bean pieces. Delicious hot or iced, serve by the pitcher or in tall glasses with a sprig of fresh mint for a naturally sweet refreshment.
