drank Mint Green by Wiseman Tea Company
1908 tasting notes

Another tea from the Traveling Teabox and I have to say I’m liking this a lot better than the last one I tried! ;)

The tea smells fresh and minty and it reminds me as nothing so much as that Tident spearmint-flavour gum. The green tea looks like it’s been rolled into loose little gunpowder-style pellets and it looks and while some gunpowder teas will take on a dull, dusty appearance, particularly if they’re old – this tea looks fresh as well as smells fresh.

It’s nicely balanced in term of the flavour of the green tea and the flavour of the mint, with neither overwhelming the other. Both mint and gunpowder green tea can be bitter or astringent, but this tea is neither – it’s refreshing, light and slightly sweet. It’s too bad summer is over – this would be excellent iced and maybe with a bit of agave nectar.

I’m def keeping this one! :D

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
