I go in & out of phases with mints. Sometimes I love them, sometimes I don’t. There are also some mints I enjoy more than others, with peppermint being my true favorite, & spearmint not so much. I used to love drinking Republic of Tea’s Moroccan mint over ice, it was just SO refreshing! Anyway, for the last couple of years I haven’t really liked mints in my tea so much, although I do enjoy it shredded in a Vietnamese style salad, especially freshly picked from my back yard. I grow several mints, & I used to grow an amazing curly peppermint, which took over a large portion of my yard at my old house. I meant to bring some with me, along with the jewel weed, but in the hub bub of moving, I didn’t. I went back later to get some, & they had dug it all up. There was none to be found. For a long time I couldn’t find that mint anywhere, but I recently found a source online, & I’m looking forward to getting some!
This is a pleasantly nostalgic cup, & I love the addition of lemon myrtle especially, an herb which I’ve always enjoyed! The aroma of the dry leaf is amazingly fresh, thanks to the peppermint, & the tea itself is lightly sweet & reminiscent of my younger days :)
