Tea Swap Sample Sipdown of the Day! (18)
This one comes from VariaTEA!
I admit I was a bit worried at first, as both the dry leaf and the steeped tea smelled oddly floral, almost like rose?
Luckily, it doesn’t taste like rose. Thank goodness!
It’s a perfectly nice and fairly mild peppermint tea. I appreciate that they used peppermint flavoring in addition to the dry leaf because, to me, they’re two different flavor profiles. There’s a bit of a creamy element here as well, which is a nice compliment.
The only issue I have is that I can’t taste the base tea, period. I would think this is an herbal blend based on the taste alone. It’s not a huge issue, but I would definitely order the Candy Cane Rooibos from Simpson & Vail if I wanted an herbal-tasting candy cane tea, as that one is actually herbal and caffeine free.
Happy to have tried it, though. And looking at the NecessiTeas website, I will definitely need to order from them at some point because their flavors sound amazing!
