From Harney & Sons

Organic Green Tea with Mint is exhilarating! This classic with a twist is a traditional blend of full leaf organic Chinese green tea with a hint of mint. The gentle addition of crisp peppermint from Oregon complements the clean taste of green tea, adding a bit of refreshment. A contemporary take on the classic, this brew pours out green tea perfection.

This was a sample that came with a Harney and Sons order from some months ago. I kept meaning to get around to trying it, but I am glad I didn’t because it made a nice tea to share with oldest daughter tonight after we went out for Mexican food. Drinking green tea together each time she comes has become a bit of a tradition, and she loves minty things.

I steeped this at around 175F for three minutes. That is my standby green tea steeping method unless I have seen something that leads me to do otherwise.

This is a really pretty color, and since it has been over a hundred degrees for the past few days, my first thought was that this would probably be pretty awesome iced. We drank it hot, though.

The green tea base and the mint are really well balanced. This is a very smooth green tea and I didn’t detect any bitterness or bite in it. I wonder if sme green tea lovers would find it bland? But for me, it was very pleasant. The mint is very pressing but doesn’t overpower the green tea. I have had mint tea before that left me feeling a little TOO tingly, like I might never taste anything else again ever!

We made a resteep of this sachet and that was very pleasant, too.

I am glad we got to taste it, and I wouldn’t be surprised if my daughter asks me to order some for her. I do not usually drink mint tea, other than my Moroccan Mint from Tin Roof Teas, so I doubt I would order it, but if you like mint greens this one is very good.

I think your review said it well. I just got a sample of this with my order a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised, as I usually go for black loose tea.

My final sample from my latest H&S order.
I like Mint.
I like herbal Mint teas, I like Mint gum and I certainly like Mint Juleps.
However, Mint in my green tea…eh, I have found that it seems to take over and you can not even taste the green tea.
So, in the past, Never been a fan.
I see others who reviewed this tea said that this tea was not Minty enough.
For me, it was about right.
I can smell the green tea and the mint.
I can taste the green tea and mint.
But, neither over power the other.
Am I converted to drinking Mint Green Tea all the time.
No.
I still see the two as separate occasion teas, but, if I were in the mood for a Mint Green Tea, it would be this tea.
I think they got the blend just about right.
The Tea is a lovely golden blond color.
Another tea that I think would be nice to try cold brewed.

It is saturday, early evening and the boyfriend is cooking something or other involving lentils. I’ve been editing all day (booooring!), and it occurred to me that the Sample of the Day would have to be now, because when we’ve eaten, I’ll probably be elsewhere watching tv for the rest of the evening.

For that reason Sample Week continues with something easy, and ‘something easy’ is defined as ‘something in a bag’.

I’m not really that fond of mint. I can eat it in most things, and I can tolerate it in teas although it’s not something I’ll ever really seek out, I don’t think. I absolutely cannot stand it as the filling in After Eights or similar chocolates, although there I believe it’s more a question of not liking the cream than not liking the mint.

So mint herbals is something I drink when I’m ill and real tea tastes funny, and it’s not something I would be likely to seek out as flavouring in tea on my own.

The aroma is quite minty. It’s very like a basic mint herbal only a bit weaker. Probably the green tea holding it back a little. I can’t find any notes of green tea anywhere in the aroma though. Only mint.

So the aroma isn’t really that promising for me, but the flavour turns out to be better than the aroma. The actual mint flavour isn’t really that overwhelming although it is still pretty strong, and here I can definitely identify the presence of some generic green tea of some sort. It’s not possible to discern any specific characteristics of it, other than the fact that it’s definitely there.

There is a whole lot of mint flavour, but the base of the green tea, and the fact that it’s detectable, is keeping the whole thing grounded a bit. A pure mint herbal, when the tastebuds are not hindered by illness, to me tastes a bit like a solution of water and toothpaste.

The green tea here keeps the same fate from befalling this tea. It’s more grounded, less flimsy and a lot more pleasant.

I’m thinking the name should probably be “Organic Green Tea With a Possible Hint of Mint But You’ll Have to Concentrate Really Hard to Actually Taste It” Some of this is probably due to work microwave and the inability to carefully control time and temp, but I’m getting a lot more of a bitter gunpowdery green flavor than any mint. It’s not bad, but one of the few—if any—H&S blends I don’t think I’d repeat.

The mint is quite light, which would have made for a nice cup but whatever green Harney has used for this blend doesn’t suit it at all I’m afraid. It’s bitter, almost like gunpowder and the mint definitely doesn’t compliment it.

This was another sample I received with a Harney & Sons order. Until I drank it a couple nights ago, it had been sitting around in my sample pile for a couple of months. I had totally forgotten about it.

I prepared this tea using a one step Western infusion. Honestly, I chose to not press on with a second infusion because I did not care for the results of the first infusion all that much. Anyway, I steeped the sample sachet in 8 ounces of 175 F water for 3 minutes.

Prior to infusion, I noted that the dry tea and mint blend mostly produced a strong aroma of peppermint. After infusion, I again noted a strong scent of peppermint, though I also picked up on hints of grass and cream. In the mouth, the peppermint dominated. I also got a slight creaminess, which I often get from peppermint. Aside from very subtle notes of straw and grass, the green tea did not display much of a presence at all.

This is one that I will definitely pass on in the future. I am not entirely averse to mint teas, but I like them to be more balanced. This was very heavy on the mint, which made the blend seem very off-kilter and one-dimensional. If you happen to receive a free sample of this blend, by all means try it, but just be aware that it is definitely all about the mint.

I was given a sample of this tea by a friend. As a lover of mint, I was really excited to try one with green leaves instead an herbal mint tea.

The first sip I took, the mint was somewhat absent and I was a little disappointed. However, the mint gradually became more noticeable (but a little stale) without covering up the taste of the green tea itself (which was also a little stale).

I probably wouldn’t buy it myself, but it definitely helped my sore throat!

Meh. Not my kind of tea. Mildly minty but I prefer something a little more exotic. Left a bitter aftertaste too. Reminds me of trying to make myself finish off dusty old supermarket green tea bags that’d been in my cupboard too long.

Sample cube 4/18

Brewed cold for work on a very hot day. Tastes like a very smooth green tea with mint in it. Not being a big proponent of mint in tea, I don’t have much to add about it, but it is nicely refreshing and will be enjoyed by those who like mint. I can’t imagine what this would be like hot, though…
