A tea bag from Madeline. We agreed on swap on 11th September, send each other envelopes, but mine arrived just today! Thank you Madeline — here is her profile https://steepster.com/mallen657 as I have invited her here and she “loves this place”. She contacted me through Postcrossing.
I have quite terrible headache today and I wanted to try something, more-less new. I never had green tea with mint from Bigelow before. I know and assume somehow standard quality of tea and mint. But it’s new tea bag for my collection for sure, and that was actaully major reason why I have agreed on the swap.
It is as expected; quite mild but tasty base. And then lots of speamint. It is very refreshing. Easydrinking tea, the green base is indeed basic and somehow common hay-like, not really much of fresh green tea. The spearmint is rather like chewing gum. Maybe too strong for me as it almost “kills” the base.
