David’s Tea Advent Day 4.
(Work is nuts, so I’m very behind).
Mint forward, pepper aftertaste. A perfectly fine mint tea but I have plenty of other lovely mints and I wouldn’t be likely to go back to this again.
Flavors: Mint, Pepper

This has an interesting flavour – a balance of both spice and mint. The spiciness comes from a variety of ingredients – fennel, licorice, cardamom, ginger and black pepper. It has a refreshing quality to it and makes for a nice early afternoon tea with a light amount of caffeine from the green tea base.

Day 6 DavidsTea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar — Organic North African Mint. When I hear North Africa and Mint, I think licorice. So when I brewed up this tea and gave it a whiff, I was surprised to find it to be spicy, earthy and even almost a little pleasantly musky, but I picked up on no licorice, though it is in there. It’s fairly light, much lighter than most licorice-mint blends, despite the strong spice presence and it’s immensely refreshing. Now, I know not everyone likes mint. If that’s you, the mint is still pretty in your face, so you guys should give this one a pass. The addition of green tea for a light caffeine pick-me-up is a nice touch, too.
The flavour profile reminds me a tiny bit of some of my favourite unisex scents: earthy, spicy, but fresh and coolly stimulating. The chill bite of the mint is balanced quite well with the warmth from the spices, working particularly well to temper the black pepper which has a tendency to overpower things.
Great mid-afternoon tea or after a big meal as a digestive. Unexpected, in a good way. I could absolutely see buying this one after the calendar is over. A real winner for mint lovers out there!
