I gave this a rating of 55 last time and I honestly don’t remember rating this at all?
Ahh well. I’ve got a massive headache and I wanted to get through my sipdowns so DAVIDs Peppermint Amour was a no go since I have like TONS of that tea.
I turned to Adagio’s Spearmint and hey, it’s minty and it’s tea so I’m attempting to cure my headache.
Dry leaves smell like spearmint.
Steeping smells like burnt mint.
Tasting smells like…. burnt mint.
Dang it lost its minty brightness. No wonder why I rated this at 55, I think it should stay that way. Alone it tastes not good at all, but I’ve blended this with other teas, and the Loki blend from Cara (Spearmint, vanilla rooibos, gunpowder) is definitely one of my favourites. Well, I’m happy I got rid of this tea :) I think spearmint will always and forever taste good in blends, and peppermint is always a great tea to have on hand. Peppermint is great on its own, spearmint not so much.
I’ve also been using my DAVIDsTEA filters because ain’t nobody got time to wash the strainers and whatnot with this massive headache!
And apparently my roommate’s friend was going through my instagram looking at my photos and apparently I’m cute?? Hhaha yeah well, I get that a lot. She stopped at a photo of my friend and I in Morocco in Epcot wearing fezzes because we deemed that day as Doctor Who day and we went to Morocco to wear fezzes and to the UK to take photos at the Telephone Boxes. We looked like freaks, but there were other people wearing Doctor Who shirts, and we actually saw an Eleven and an Amy Pond so that was fun! But yeah. Now I’m drinking out of my Epcot Spaceship Earth mug because MEMORIES.
It’s such a tough mug to drink out of because the lip of it is so thick and the ridges make me dribble wow I’m an actual 5 year old child.
