I am a lover of mint juleps. While this tea isn’t quite the same as a julep, it does have a refreshing taste and fragrance that helps take the edge off of the summer heat. I tried hot and cold. It was fine both ways but with the warm weather, I especially enjoyed this tea chilled. The spearmint flavor really comes through. The tea it self is almost the consistency of a matcha, so be careful with the infuser. If you like spearmint, you won’t be disappointed. Prior to this I was buying McCormick and Bigalow’s Plantation Mint. This is far better than McCormick and while PM was’t a bad tea, the Harney’s blend is easily my favorite.
In fact, I think this will end up being one of my summer favorites, besting Harney’s Black Currant and Organic Coconut iced teas.
