drank Mint Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
12 tasting notes

The rose isn’t very noticeable, which struck me as pleasantly surprising. There’s a fresh, almost ozonic taste — think fresh air in the mountains — in a top layer, underscored by the tingle of different mint flavors. Quite a nice tea if you can brew it just right; this one also works well with the tea just in a cup (no filter needed!), since the fragments all sink to the bottom and stay there as the liquid steeps into a pleasant golden color.

Flavors: Lemongrass, Peppermint, Spearmint, Sugar

Hi! I’m a coffeeholic-turned-tea-addict, though my experience with tea doesn’t extend much past re-steeped home go-to pots and dim sum restaurant cups. I am fascinated by the history of tea because, hey, wars were fought over this stuff, right?

My favorites are jasmine (my #1), mint, Ceylon, oolong, the occasional well balanced tie guan yin, the occasional white, chrysanthemum, and chamomile. Herbals are a hit or miss — I seriously cannot stand rooibos or other flower bomb tea.

Regardless, my tea-steeping and tea-pouring etiquette could REALLY use some work. Hopefully this website will change that!
