I made some of this earlier today and decided to ice it and have it with my dinner tonight. It’s really refreshing this way. Very minty but a touch of lemongrass is peeking through. This will be really nice for the summer.

Recently, I discovered a drink that I ADORE at the Philz on my walk to work. However, when I go there, I end up spending like $6 or more because I have no self control and get a vegan cookie, as well. Well, since I’m on a money AND food diet, I decided to buy a bag of these yerba mate bags, even though $5 for 25 seemed a little steep. Now, at Philz, I had them add a little soy milk and fresh mint, so I was trying to accomplish the same at home… SO, I mixed 40 oz of water with 4 yerba mate tea bags and 2 Trader Joe’s Mint Melange tea bags, then added some vanilla soy until my pot was about full (maybe a cup?)
PERFECT! Exactly what I was looking for. :D
No rating, since I mixed it with another tea.
My stomach is hell this morning, so I’m having to give up my morning cuppa of black tea to make something more soothing that might settle the nausea a bit. My go-to for nausea is either mint tea or ginger tea, so I’ve had a box of these teabags on hand for a while that Todd mailed me (I don’t have a local Trader Joe’s and always seem to be rather unimpressed with the bagged mint offerings I find around here… at least the Bigelow one I found retchid). I have liked this one a lot, though. I think I enjoy my mint blends more when they are a mix of peppermint and spearmint, and the touch of lemon helps add another slight note to cut through what would otherwise just be that heavy menthol taste. This one is nice and strong and minty which is precisely what my tum-tum needs, but I do get just a bit of citrus and my tongue is left cool and tingly. The mint is strong enough that the lemongrass doesn’t come off very herbaceous in this particular tea, so while I do prefer other lemon herbs more, it works okay here. This also makes a nice iced tea, as I’ve dropped 4-5 teabags into cold water and let it sit overnight (or 2-3 in a water bottle to take on the go) in the past before to have minty ice cold refreshing tea too.
Flavors: Citrus, Menthol, Mint
I love mint tea, good mint tea, which is surprisingly difficult to find. I bought a few mint teas at Trader Joe’s this morning, one of them might be “the one.” I am pleased with this one, it was my first try so hard to know how others will compare, but I did enjoy this tea very much. I think the lemongrass adds a brightness to flavor.
Flavors: Lemongrass, Peppermint, Spearmint
I drink this a lot and enjoy it every time.
Heavy on the mint, but the sweetness in it actually makes this a mellow blend. Spearmint, peppermint, lemon grass, possibly some other lemony herbs. While this is not unique in flavour profile, I do appreciate its simplicity. It is really tasty hot or iced, it takes milk and is very nice plain, it resteeps a few times, and you really can’t overbrew it.
Flavors: Lemongrass, Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Sweet
I drink a lot of mint-family teas, and this is the best. Of all the regularly available mint teas, plantation mint, pure peppermint, pure mint, pure spearmint, this is the best. Like salt in your hot chocolate, the lemongrass is the hidden thread that ties everything in this tea together. 1 bag in 1 cup boiling water with 1 packet NuStevia = heaven. Like most herbal teas it can steep forever without going bad (getting bitter).
