I feel like this might be an infusion that could grow on me. It’s got a light minty note which was a bit strange the first time I tried Mellow Moments. I definitely get an interesting guava/fruit flavor and I think the tulsi was a great addition to the blend. It gives the infusion a nice herbaceous, grounded taste that keeps it from being either too minty or fruity. I’m not completely blown away, but I’m willing to give this a few more attempts.

By the way, this tisane smells fantastic! Minty and fruity sweet, like gum but in a good way.

I grew up drinking oolong. My parents would toss a pinch of leaves into our cups and we’d steep them again and again until the brew was tasteless. Sometimes my little sister and I would throw some toasted rice in there and munch through our sips while doing homework or watching TV.

I had never had any other tea until I was in college. My first non-oolong tea was Earl Grey and I dumped it down the drain. Milk, sugar, bergamot oil, black tea—what a shock!

Years later and I’ve now become a big fan of all other types of tea and tisanes as well. As cheesy as it might sound, I believe tea is a very personal experience. There will always be something new to surprise you, yet there is nothing so reliable as a good cup of tea.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am an employee at Stash Tea, though I am not representing them on Steepster in any way. While I will log my honest reviews of both Stash’s and other companies’ teas, I won’t be posting any ratings so as not to come off as biased.
