I like to think I’m not a tea “snob” in that, I really don’t mind trying teas from more generic companies. In other words, I’m sincerely attracted to flavors more so than brands… and for the sake of this tea, boy am I glad! I discovered it over the summer, and it made the perfect summer-flavored tea! And moving into November, it’s still one of my go-to favorites. I can’t help but adore the balance of mint with lime, but I will admit I might be biased by how much I love mint, and I would say that the mint flavor is a shy bit stronger than lime in this tea.
I also happen to appreciate that this tea comes in one of the little tins, in bags. If I’m on my way out of the house with an empty mug (god forbid!) and I don’t have time to fuss with loose leaf, this is what I toss into my bag.
I love the lively and slightly sweet combination of lime, mint, and honey; which are, admittedly, three of my favourite flavours for anything. I will confess that it took me +6 months to actually try the tea after I discovered its existence because I was skeptical. However, I am really happy with the resulting tea and I’m so glad I gave it a go! Note: I have only tried it hot.
