Backlog: I started my day with this. It was very mellow and smooth, but due to the condition of my taste buds, I noticed very little mint taste. But I could taste the delicious bergamot, and I think that’s what inspired me to drink the lemon cinnamon tea that I had later.

That sounds tasty!

LiberTEAS

It is a tasty tea. It’s much better when I can taste the mint, my inhibited taste buds sort of left me at that disadvantage with this tea yesterday. But, in my previous tasting, I remember tasting a pretty evenly matched mint to bergamot, and it was really quite interesting and lovely.

This smells like carpet/refresher powder! But don’t like that scare you! This tastes great! If you like EG and you like mint – this is RIGHT ON! It’s everything you would expect and it’s pretty intense! A Mission Accomplished sort of flavored tea! Hooray!

This sounds like my wife’s perfect tea! Holy cow, thanks for bringing Red Leaf Tea to my attention…the free shipping over $75 extends to Canadian addresses too, and their prices and selection are awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This sounds awesome, but after all the tea I had delivered yesterday my husband may divorce me if I order more! (kidding) I’ll need to keep this in mind once I make some space on the shelf.

Afternoon tea today, with lemon ice daisy cookies and an assortment of jams, spinach spread, and pimento for crackers. Using my new fleur de lis condiment spreader I nabbed in NOLA. It’s the little things…

You don’t see mint earls very often, at least I haven’t, so I was intrigued but also a little worried it’d prove a case of “well, now you know why!” But this is pretty good if you’re up for a little medicinal mint tang with your afternoon refreshment; the mint gives it a planty earthiness and tingle I like, and the bergamot leans toward the flowery type which normally I’m not down with but works with the earthy cleanness of the mint here. I think it would be excellent when you’re feeling slightly under the weather or queasy—not ill enough to make black tea a bad idea, mind, but just a little funky from, oh say, a heavy lunch. And I reckon this will be wonderful iced. I think I may, a year later (!), have finally cracked the code to Sazerac’s Garden District cocktail (it’s got earl grey infused vodka, honey, lemon, mint, and—the secret ingredient I only discovered last week!—pear brandy) and when I try to perfect it at home next go round I’m going to use this to infuse the vodka/gin. Mm.

I do imagine this could get unpleasantly bitter steeped longer than I went with, so I’ll have to remember to keep playing gentle with it.

That cocktail sounds amazing :)

it haunted me for a year! i went home and tried to recreate it thinking it couldn’t be that hard given it’s recognizable basic building block ingredients that i know how to balance usually (re: the lemon and syrup and mint, i mean), but getting it right eluded me no matter how many times i tried. there was always a roughness from the tea tannin and fresh mint mixing with the lemon. pear brandy makes sense as the solution; i’ve used it before in rum and bourbon cocktail recipes and it has a nice softening, smoothing effect and a subtle delicate depth plain syrup doesn’t. when i figure out the proportions i will probaby post about it somewhere on steepster, ‘cause goodness knows i’ve been obsessed, ha.
