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.

37 yr old wife and mother who left her day job to take care of our son. Now running a property management business with my hubby.

I grew up on Lipton -hot w/milk & sugar, Lipton iced w/fresh spearmint and sugar, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime … Don’t criticize.

I came across Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy out of chance and it spurred my interested in trying new teas because it was a flavor I had never had before in a tea. I’m now new to the world of loose leaf teas and looking forward to learning what I like as I journey through some new flavors. Hubby has always enjoyed the occasional cup when we’ve been out and about at restaurants.. now we will find out what good teas are really all about! On with the adventures!

Still relatively new to loose leaf, but I’m learning… Coconut, cinnamon, chai, chocolate, mint, & pineapple are just a few of the flavors I enjoy. I have found that I can do green teas so long as there are other flavors as well and it isn’t the primary flavor. I have only found 1 rooibos blend that was too woodsy for me, most of the time the base is hidden or blends well enough w/flavored versions for my liking. I’m beginning to enjoy fruit teas more and more. I occasionally like a straight black tea.

Hubby likes milder flavors, any base, berry flavors, sweet aromas, sometimes tart, and or floral, and chocolate to my surprise! Almost the opposite of me.. go figure!

My 8 year old just took interest and loves root beer.. so far Butterbeer is a hit, but we haven’t tried any root beer or cola teas yet.. soon thanks to the Marvelous MissB for sending some samples. He enjoyed Winter Nog (Della Terra) recently, but turned away something else I gave him.. darn if I can’t remember now what it was!
