Didn’t like this tea. Personally I think mint in tea is just a no no for me. I enjoyed the coconut in this but the smell of the mint was keeping me from enjoying it.

If you want a taste of the Kentucky Derby,the best place to start is a mint julep. So ice yourself a cup of this little number and hang on to your hat. With black tea, spearmint and lemon peel, it’s smooth and refreshing right out of the gate. Add a creamy touch of pineapple and coconut, and you’ve got a cool summer drink that’s best in class. Try it with a sprig of fresh mint, a splash of bourbon and lots of cracked ice. Trust us – it’s a winner.
Black tea, rooibos, spearmint, pineapple, coconut, lemon peel, natural and artificial flavouring*.

after seeing my actual sample of this, i’d say it is a rooibos before a black tea, which is honestly a little off-putting – i’m not really a fan of rooibos and i can’t imagine rooibos + black + mint being good. but… we’ll see.
i suppose the rooibos is in there to add a touch of natural sweetness, as it DOES smell minty and sweet. surprisingly it’s not overpowering on the first sip. i don’t know that i’d like this one iced – minty iced teas just don’t do it for me, but as a hot tea, it is quite refreshing. the mint lingers and the black tea sort of bullies out the rooibos until the end where there’s just a hint of lingering sweetness.
dang! another winner!! this is going to be an expensive summer for teas! hahah
On a roll lately. Really surprised I even like this one. Tried this one as a sample iced in store, the girl working there suggested that it might be better hot. Turns out she was right, while delicious iced, I’ve taken to having it hot. But thats not why I’m surprised I like this tea… I do not like rooibos that much. There is rooibos in this tea. Somehow, that slipped my notice in reading the ingredients – I thought Mint Julep was a black tea only.
Well played DavidsTea, well played.
