New Home! – 9:15 AM
First tea in our new home! We closed yesterday and spent the night last night so we could be here for early morning fiber installation and appliance delivery appointments. Today we’ll begin moving our stuff! Yay!
This was one of the tea “ghosts” that B&B only offered for one day. This one is a ghost of Christmas past, meaning it’s a blend they used to carry that they brought back to sell for one day only this year. I ended up with a 150g pouch because by the time I woke up, those rascally Brits had bought up all of the 50g ones! No biggie though, I’m sure I can find other Steepsters to share it with.
I’m very happy with their decision to use peppermint flavoring instead of leaves for this tea. There are a few dried mint leaf pieces mixed in, but they’re actually spearmint, yay!
This is less intense than I expected it to me. It’s a somewhat soft peppermint flavor, and there’s a lovely big dollop of cream and vanilla in there with it. It reminds me quite a bit of their Peppermint Cream oolong tea, with a slightly different peppermint flavor. It’s very yummy – like peppermint white chocolate! The stevia must be very minimal, I don’t think I would know it was there if I hadn’t read the ingredients before drinking this.
So not at all disappointed in my 150g pouch! But I’ll still be willing to share the wealth, don’t worry!
