As I put in the description… this was a freebie generously given out by Herbal Infusions Tea Co. at the Toronto Tea Festival! There was also a black option, which Raritea and Sil picked up; I got the herbal.
Unfortunately, I should have given more thought to what would likely be in the herbal… naturally, my favourite ingredient, mint, features quite prominently (that’s sarcasm, btw). So, it’s not going to be a favourite, and I feel bad about that! However, it seems to be a pretty decent tea, as minty ones go. I feel like it’s not peppermint, but plain mint – which lends a crispness to the tea that I’m not finding offputting. I can’t really pick out any of the other flavours, but again, this had the same epic oversteep that the Creme Brulee Chai had, so it’s possible that that allowed the mint to completely take over. I’m sure this will be popular with those who like minty, herbally teas.
ETA: I have no idea how my note got cut off previously… .anyhow, second infusion actually was better. Less mint, more background flavours, which I found more enjoyable. I’ll probably have some of this again to see if I can coax those flavours out in the first infusion.
