Derk generously sent me this tea a couple months ago. I like peppermint more than spearmint, but was happy to give this a try. I steeped one teabag in a 355 ml mug at 205F for 4, 6, 8, and around 30 minutes.
As expected, this tea smelled like spearmint gum. The first couple steeps had a crisp, sweet, slightly earthy spearmint taste. I let the teabag sit for almost a day before making my last two infusions, which were not as flavourful and seemed a bit grassy and stewed. I’m not sure if this was due to the long delay between steeps or the extended steep times. Regardless, this was a pleasant way to end the day, although peppermint is still my favourite.
