This is a solid Gun Powder green tea, that happens to be mixed with some mint. I can imagine it would work well cold brewed to bring out the mint taste, and bring down the astringent characteristics of the green tea, fairly common in gun powder varieties. As a hot tea, the mint is subtle, more of a feeling in your mouth than a taste. Disappointingly, the mint smell dissipates after brewing – unlike the strong smell that wafts from the newly opened tin.
This is very temperature sensitive tea – loosing flavor profiles when over steeped or if the water is too hot. Re-steeping should be limited to once before the flavors get muddled. Re-steeping does not improve the flavor, but with the very light mint flavor after re-steeping, it is a wonderful afternoon drink, and pairs well with dark chocolate.
