This tea is amber brown in color and smells quite minty. It taste minty and sweet like a peppermint pattie. If you like mint, you will like this tea

I picked up a sample of this at the Coffee & Tea Festival. Enjoying it tonight with a bit of Manuka honey. It tastes refreshingly of peppermint and a tart touch of lemon. There’s a nice tingly afterfeel. This feels like brushing my teeth, but not in a gross way. Brushing my teeth with some hippy natural herbal paste? Anyway, this is a solid blend that blows away several of the meh peppermint herbal blends in my cabinet right now. Unfortunately, it’s a sipdown!
Flavors: Lemon, Peppermint
Sooo the second time my boyfriend came to visit me, I let him try a Harney & Sons tea-the SoHo Blend, and he loved it. Also this year him and his bro and his bro’s gf came out as a birthday surprise for their mum (my boyfriend and his bro lived in England at the time and his parents live in NY, where he is now), so I sent him a package full of some tea samples I’d wanted him to try for the longest time-I had to get him off of the classic English Breakfast tea with milk. :P He can’t go back anymore! Muahahahahahaha!
Anyway, one of the samples I gave him was Paris, and he loved it too!
So he finally graduated Uni about a month ago and I get to see him on Monday, he’s coming for a short visit-Monday to Saturday since he’s planning to come for this Christmas anyway. Had to place a H&S order for his graduation present. Got him the SoHo blend and The Tower of London-but the 5 satchets little tin. Oh my goodness, When I opened the package I almost missed the tin because it’s so tiny! XD
But anyway, since it’s like Paris I thought he’d like it. (: I just gotta finish a cross stitch for him and then his graduation gift will be complete! :D So excited!
Got three samples with that order. Two were the same old boring teas, like the chai one and the pomegranat one plus an iced tea pouch. This one was the only new one-so I had to try!
And all I really gotta say is that it was minty. Very very minty. Tried really hard to find another flavor or something, but no. It was just a crap load of mint in that mug for both steeps! It wasn’t bad-I mean, I had two cups of it. But it wasn’t amazing either. Was a fine tea, just not something I’d buy or drink again. Kinda a boring tea to be honest :P But hey, better boring than bad!
I swear I have logged this tea before, but maybe not. This sachet came in my recent H&S order, along with a huge hand full of others. I manged to catch a summer bug. I blame my one year old:) The daycare is just a cesspool of germs that she brings home and shares with me. My tasters are not great. I tried to drink a cup of Golden Monkey yesterday and that did not end well so I am sticking with the mint teas in my stash until this bug runs for the hills.
With my bad tasters, this was really nice. It was calming, soothing, minty with a slight creaminess. I think I have another sachet of this stashed away at work that I will resteep over and over again. Thank you H&S for the great sample.
Backlog. This was actually my favorite tea from vacation—the mint is light and sweet, and the verbena adds a nice citrus note to the cup. It’s a simple combination but it’s one of the most pleasant mint teas I’ve tried. This seems to be one of Harney’s staples, so I’m actually surprised I haven’t tried it before now!
TTB Tea 5: Right now, my tea is the only thing keeping me warm in the poorly insulated building where I work for one of my jobs.
I really like mint, so I was very interested in trying this one, and seeing how the other flavors play with the mint. Unfortunately, I’m getting mostly mint and not much else. If I had more, I’d be interested in playing around with the parameters to see what brings out the flavors that aren’t mint
Edit: Wow I said the word “mint” a lot in this very short review. Mint mint mint mint mint
The best lemon-mint tea I’ve had. I haven’t had many mint teas(4-5)but this was great. I probably haven’t been introduced to a high quality mint yet :p. First tried it at a local Crepes and Grapes with a soup and sandwich and I knew it was great from the first sip. The leaves fully unfurled in the pyramid satchet with an astonishing weight for a teabag. The liqour was not very murky at all compared to many bagged herbal teas Ive had, and the taste was more pleasant than astringent; lemon verbena present but maybe not as much in taste than aroma. Enjoyed every last sip and was able to resteep it for a second cup. Would recommend to lovers of mint herbal teas.
