I usually love peppermint and all things minty, but this did nothing for me. It was equivalent to drinking sugar-water with the cooling effect after each sip.

My parent introduced me to tea at a very young age and I’ve been hooked since. Though I’ve been living with tea for most of my life, I’m fairly new to the loose variety—how to brew it, what to use, when to use it. Sadly, I’m a microwaver but I’m hoping to change that very soon.
