I got this tea as one of my free samples simply because of the name. I used to live in a gorgeous house in Hoboken that was actually IN the movie On The Waterfront! So how could I resist? Well maybe if it was banana bacon flavored or something, but it also happens to have a lot of ingredients that I love.

At first sip, it tastes like a peppermint tea. A very nice one, but just peppermint. But the more you drink, the more the other flavors start popping up in the background. A bit of rose, a hint of nuttiness, a whiff of ginger. It’s really an interesting tea! I am going to try it with a shorter steep as well to see if the other flavors become more dominant, though right now I am really enjoying playing the “flavor guessing game” with this blend.

EDIT: Did a short 4-minute steep (which is very short for an herbal!) and the other flavors came out a lot stronger. The peppermint is still dominant, but it’s easier to pick out the rose, ginger, almond, hibiscus, and a few other things. It’s a long ingredient list! I am thinking of keeping this around as an everyday mint—it’s between this and Mint Medley, though at the moment I prefer the complexity of this blend.

On a second try: I let this steep for 7.5 minutes, since the label says to steep for 5-10 min. I actually think this was a mistake because now I can’t taste anything but peppermint. Don’t get me wrong, I love peppermint, but if I want peppermint tea that’s what I’ll drink. This has lots of other ingredients and none of them are in evidence after this long a steep. There is probably one more large cup in the sample, and I will steep that one for less time to see if I can re-experience some of the other ingredients in the cup.

Thanks for the note about steeping. I found a similar tea combination which says to steep it for 10 – 15 minutes which seems way too long to me, so I think I’ll go with a much shorter time per your experience.

The mint taste is very strong, but I like it. I also like that you can completely change the taste with a change in steep time. No matter how long you steep though it is always yummy, particularlly when iced :)
