Haven’t had good peppermint tea for a while, so I am really happy with this tea! It’s been in my cupboard for almost a year and I’ve just realized that it’s going to expire! The dry leaves smell fascinatingly minty – I think I will be happy sniffing the bag of tea leaves for a whole day (this sounds really perverted doesn’t it? :P)

When brewed, it doesn’t disappoint – wonderful peppermint flavour with a hint of lemon and orange oil. I like pure peppermint cos I really hate it when other ingredients steal the show, but this well-balanced blend shows me that a bit of variation won’t hurt as long as you have the right formula :) It reminds me of my adventurous trip in Morocco! I am so going to try it with honey and orange flower water, as suggested by Steepsterite Siberia!

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

I am now practising mindfulness as a way of living. I decide to use tea tasting as a means to meditate in my daily life. My tasting notes here will therefore be my meditation notes :)

I’ve got no time to update my Pinterest and blog since I became a mom. Nevertheless, if you feel curious, you are most welcomed to visit these abandoned pages:
