Too lazy to brew loose leaf right now, having woken up a scant 2 hours ago. I really need to stop staying up so late, haha. Anyway, I got this from a German bakery over the Christmas holiday when we were visiting my Dad’s side of the family. I’ve never had just peppermint, I’ve had it in blends before though.
Oh wow, I’m a bit surprised at how dark the brew is. It almost looks like a black tea, but the box says that there’s only peppermint, nothing else. Huh. The taste isn’t spectacular, but it’s nice. Most of the mint flavor is in the aftertaste unless you slurp it, which I don’t tend to do too often. It’s helping to wake me up though, and that’s all I really needed.
