Our purchasing manager was cleaning out his office this morning, and found a sample set of Mount of Olives Treasures teas that some vendor had given him. Yup, the samples are now mine. That being said, who knows how old these bags are, but it’s new to me, so I’m definitely going to give it a shot.

5 minutes with water from the Hot Shot (so no clue on actual temp), then let cool for a bit whilst we had an office meeting. It’s surprisingly good. I can actually taste both the spearmint and peppermint, which really shocked me, because I normally can’t do that. The black tea base isn’t the strongest or best that I’ve ever had, but it’s not too bad either.

Considering I’m not a fan of mint at all (unless it’s in chocolate), this is really good! I may have to find a fresher batch of this to get a true idea, but I’m definitely going to be drinking these bags up!

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
