7 Tasting Notes
I bought it on a whim at a Big Lot’s discount store for $1, so I was a little skeptical to start with. The tea bag wrapper says it is great for iced tea, but I prefer my tea hot. The fresh out of the box tea bag smells minty. The steeping tea smells like a minty armpit. It was a little off putting and made me scared to taste it. As it cooled, the armpit smell dulled a bit and I could smell mint. The tea itself is a pretty honey color, almost orange.
I don’t think I steeped it long enough, because it tasted a bit watery. The taste itself is orangey, citrus mint and I just didn’t like it. The after taste feels like I brushed my teeth, something I don’t usually get when I drink mint tea.
I drink this before bed every night. A nice herbal mix that is calming and I love the minty taste. Usually nighttime teas have a very strong chamomile taste to them, but this one is really nice. I love the way the tea smells when it is steeping.
Not the best tea I’ve ever drank, but honestly, one of the best at the grocery store. It does influence my rating and enjoyment of this tea that my mom and dad only use Lipton in their sweet tea recipe and even after moving out of their house, the taste of decaf Lipton or plain Lipton black tea brings back memories.
