I got this as a free sample with my last Persimmon Tree order, and was a bit skeptical. As much as I love loose leaf tea, I didn’t think there’d be any real difference between a bagged mint and loose mint. I mean, it’s just mint, right? Not like it expands or anything.
Well, I was wrong! Even though this has spearmint, and I really prefer peppermint, the blending is just perfect. It has that characteristic sweetness from the peppermint, but it’s balanced by a nice bit of tang/bite from the spearmint. It’s so smooth and refreshing, I think I’ve found a new everyday mint tea! Plus it’s grown domestically which is pretty cool.
