GCTTB (round 6) entry

mmm minty and delicious. I did find this a tiny bit herby, but in a good way. Delicious spearmint and peppermint, slightly floral (chamomile?). The herbs are a bit sweet and extremely fragrant. This is a fine herbal, I’m quite impressed.

Unlike another tasting note, there is no licorice or fennel that I can taste.
EDIT: steeped it longer and there is definitely licorice root, it was just hidden with a soirt steep time

GCTTB tea 7/8 that I picked.

Similar to the Evening lights tea I picked, I did not find this tea to have a prominent licorice taste like other reviewers did (and once again, that’s prob due to my shorter steep time). about 2tsp, 200F water, 5 min. I found this had a mint taste, followed by a mix of floral, then maybe a bit of licorice? Altogether it’s alright. I’ll use it up no problem.

Flavors: Floral, Mint

This is a queued tasting note.

This is one of the tea’s that my mom brought home from Granville Island Tea Co. for my birthday! Unlike all the others that she bought from the store, this one it’s sourced from a larger wholesaler but is actually blended in store by the company. I’d wager that means “Henry” is probably the store owner or related to/connected to the owner in some way?

Personally, this is a blend I don’t think I’d EVER have picked out for myself. The ingredients list kind of looks like a mess to me: there’s way too much going on for any of the flavours to be melodious together. Plus, they’re not exactly exciting ingredients/flavours in the first place. And sure enough I know my tastes well enough because when I cold brewed this one I was far from impressed.

The flavour is primarily mint and licorice root, but it’s just so intense with so much other “background noise” that the last thing I found it to be was smooth sipping or something peaceful/relaxing like I think it probably aims to be. I ditched the brew around a third into it, if I’m being honest. There’s a whole lot going wrong with this blend and I didn’t want to waste my time drinking bad tea.
