I’m finding I’m drinking a lot of mint tea at the moment, even though it’s usually not a favourite of mine. I’m pretty sure it’s because it’s just so, so hot at the moment – mint, at least, has a kind of cooling effect thing going on even if I drink it hot. So. Mint it is.
This one’s pretty nice, and I think on the whole I prefer it to some other bagged brands (Twinings in particular, and possibly even Teapigs). It’s not too dank and heavy (I suppose it is called delicate…), and it retains a pleasant sweetness. My sample sachet doesn’t say, but I’m pretty sure it’s a spearmint/peppermint blend. It’s very similar to the Hampstead Tea I drank a few days ago.
I’d probably not actively seek this particular tea out in the future, since mint doesn’t generally do it for me, and because it’s nothing super special. It’s good, though; especially on a day like today when it’s at least 29 outside, and more like 34 in the office.
Can I go home yet?
