Having a bit of a lazy day, I didn’t pick up any tea until lunch… Shockers!
I’m not sure I would have picked this one up on my own. I really enjoy mint teas, and cinnamon, although I don’t think I’ve had them together yet.. before now. I’m not much for floral blends, and this has lavender scattered through the blend.. Hmm.. I can smell it in the dry mix too. Smells of mint and lavender.. but favoring the mint. I will have to admit I’m having a bit of trouble with smelling this blend due to the fact that I started a cold brew of 52teas grape iced tea blend and my hands smell of that.. even though I’ve washed them.. thinking that’s going to be some really grape tea!
Steeped, and with a less than my normal amount of sugar-I tried to hold off but I always add sugar to mint tea, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I get peppermint with a bit of floral from the lavender. Nothing is overstated. I can’t pick out the cinnamon or the rooibos, and don’t know what to look for for birch, but I imagine they come together to tone down the peppermint and blend the lavender into a nice smooth cup. Peppermint can be harsh, but in this blend it is smooth and rich tasting.
Thanks CelebriTEA for sharing this with me.
