Had my last cup of this last night.
Final verdict- not impressive. Not enough peppermint, and not enough chamomile either. The best thing about this tea was the cool, book shaped tin it came in.
But now it is a sipdown! Hurrah!
Five more to go to reach my 40 teas by black Friday goal.

Backlogged from yesterday-
I drink this always without much attention paid to it. It is mildly flavored hot water, in the gentlest way possible.
Still, in an evening when you just want something gentle to drink, this fits the bill nicely.

I had a cup of this last night, and I am afraid it made its usual lack of an impression. I like my peppermint with a lot more punch to it! This is too mellow and low key.
Oh well.

There was a ton of wind over the weekend, meaning my sinuses were not happy, and my head hurt. Tea to the rescue!
This is still not impressive. I think its a chamomile/mint blend, which means that the chamomile is taking over, and the mint is shunted backwards towards being an aftertaste.
Eh, not my favorite, but nice to sip on when your sinuses are making your throat sore.

Backlogged from this weekend.
The tin of this is so fun- it looks like a book, and as both a tea lover and a bibliophile I was bound to love it. The trouble is that this tea barely registers. I expected a stronger mint, but I think its a mint and chamomile blend, and not a particularly special one at that.
That’s too bad. I’m always on the hunt for a good mint tea, but this is not destined to be repeated.

Unfortunately my friend, who I seemed to be better yesterday, has had another episode last night, which has left me drawn and upset again.
Reinforcements are coming in, but won’t be here till late Friday and I am just hoping that somehow he will find balance again.
I didn’t know things had gotten this bad.
I had a cup of this last night to try and sooth me. Peppermint seemed good.
Unfortunatly, despite all its beautiful packaging its a disappointing mint tea. Hardly minty at all.
But holding a warm cup in my hand helped a lot.

All you can do is be there, and listen. Having suffered from the same myself, I know that a shoulder to cry on means the world during dark days. I’m so glad he has you as a friend xo

There are a LOT of roses in this tea. I was a bit horrified when I looked at the dry leaves but thankfully, it wasn’t the perfumed mess I expected it to be. There is definitely rose flavor, as well as jasmine. There’s supposedly bergamot oil because it’s Earl Grey but I couldn’t really taste it under the rose and jasmine.

It’s drinkable but not my favorite. The flavors mix together a bit weirdly and I’m not completely sure it works for my palate.

Flavors: Jasmine, Rose

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec
