This was a present from my daughters who just returned from Europe. I love that I get tea when they travel!
This is a beautiful blend when dry – black tea, broken mint leaves, and tons and tons of blue flowers! This is one that should be displayed in a tea dish before steeping as part of the whole tea experience, and would be wonderful to serve to guests after dinner.
The mint is strong but never overpowering. The tea base is smooth, mild, and sweet, not astringent at all. There is a little something….oolong-y?…about the base, a round sweetness that blossoms shyly and briefly at the end of the sip.
Thank you, Superanna! I won’t root through yours and your sister’s luggage looking for my Christmas present tea TOO much. LOL!
