This is an invigorating sweet herbal tissane that makes for a great ‘pick-me-up’ in the afternoon. If you find your mind tiring and want to get back on track than this really is the perfect tea.
The smell is overwhelmingly mint with a nice hint of the vanilla to come. The first thing you will taste is the mint and then you will be left with a delicately sweet vanilla aftertaste. It is a light tea and not overpowering in any way, it makes for a very nice treat by itself. However, I do find that something about it makes me hungry, most likely the vanilla – I’ve found gingerbread accompanies this beautifully.
It is quite addictive, I usually have a good two mugfulls at a time and with each day I have this I increase the infusing time to get the most flavour out of this as possible.
I wouldn’t recommend having this if you are trying to substitute a snack for tea as it will make you want more.
The smell of the tissane in the packet is a very good indication of what it will taste like so if you like the smell when you pick it up you’ll most likely love the tea if however it puts you off then it’s a good indication you won’t like it.
If you love vanilla like me then this is definitely for you – it makes a great caffeine-free vanilla hit and reminds me of vanilla cupcakes (with a shot of mint).
