Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage also serves this tea in their cafeteria and 4 North. I’m not exactly sure why it’s called ‘Hint of Mint,’ since it’s really minty. Really, really minty. You can smell it through the metallic sealed tea bag cover. It smells a bit skunky at first (perhaps that’s from the styrofoam cup it’s in….), but once it steeps, it becomes explicatively fragrant and Lamiaceous. After three minutes of steeping, it’s wonderfully strong and even the steam has a therapeutic peppermint quality to it. There isn’t an ingredient list on the tea bag, but it looks/tastes like there’s only peppermint there — and oh, what good peppermint it is. This is all I need for sore throat/stuffed sinus season. I usually take my minty teas with milk, but this doesn’t need it. It just needs a ceramic mug.

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.
