Tazo Refresh was my take-away refill from Starbucks today. As usual, holding and sniffing the warm cup as I trudged through the slushy snow provided moral and olfactory support.

Day infinity of this cold. Can I just say I am thoroughly tired of tisanes, herbal teas, green tea blends etc… I want me a cup of black tea with cream and sugar. Especially because I have some new flavours from Christmas and Boxing Day…
Alas… my cold has not left yet and I am stuck with herbals. I’ve definitely depleted my stock and Refresh was no exception. This is a nice peppermint and it’s soothed my sore tummy the last couple of days. A good option if buying loose isn’t your thing, of if it’s not available.
I prefer loose still though. Tasted somehow more fresh… har har.
Bought a tin of this on a total whim and was really pleasantly surprised. The mint comes through strong and pure. It was a super quick tea to steep and it blended the spearmint and the peppermint flavours nicely. I got the bite from the peppermint but it was a little tempered by the sweetness of the spearmint.
For me, the aroma and taste of this tea brings pure comfort. I am sure this is largely due to the fact that (it’s a lovely tea, and) I ordered this tea from Starbucks regularly when I started dating my sweetheart. It wasn’t uncommon for us to meet up, grab a cup of Refresh and head out on our date. He isn’t a tea drinker at all, but he enjoys this blend.
I do enjoy Peppermint, but I have always been more partial to Spearmint, so I really enjoy it. I love it “hot and clear” or with a touch of honey.
I had no plans for a stop at Starbucks this morning, but my dad offered to buy me breakfast. Since I’ve been feeling under the weather, I decided to forgo my usual skinny peppermint mocha and get some soothing Refresh tea. The peppermint really shines in this tea and it was exactly what I needed. One of the better teas offered at Starbucks.
So much for horsdeouvres, thus the spearmint in this tea is like a minty ice cream. I regulated the concentration of this tea by using some water less than boiling and by adding some splenda to bring out the date sugar taste of mint around the fifth minute of the steep.
Imagine date flavors wrapped around an ice cream cone of pure mint and chip. I stopped drinking to eat some actual brie on a biscuit dipped in basra date molasses so probably where this taste is coming from but you have got to love how it is like finding an oasis in the desert and being completely refreshed. I am definitely getting a second round of this one for my next snack attack.
