drank Juniper Mint Honey by Tazo
770 tasting notes

So I’m really torn about this one from the TTB. The first time I tried it, I really didn’t like it. Like, I had to force myself to finish it (I was too tired to go pour it out and too thirsty to just not drink anything). The juniper tastes very pine-y, and something about the mint and honey flavoring just combines to make the whole thing feel more like someone made a tea inspired by household cleaner than anything natural. BUT. Then I made it again today and added actual honey to it (basic grocery store honey because I was afraid of wasting good honey). And that made all the difference. The juniper-pine flavor mellowed into something actually pleasant, the mint became soothing, and overall it became at least drinkable and inoffensive. If you really like juniper and/or pine, you’d probably enjoy this tea (but add honey to it!).
