Taster’s Review:

Tonight, I am revisiting an old friend!  I have enjoyed this tea previously, and have even written a review about it previously.

This tea tastes very fresh and clean without being too overwhelmingly minty.  That is to say, that I enjoy mint, but sometimes too much mint in the teacup can be a bit… well, too much for me.  Fortunately, this cup has a nice balance of flavor:  mint with a pleasantly sweet green tea flavor.

Because of its somewhat mellow character, this makes a very refreshingly crisp iced tea as well as a restorative hot tea.  It has a slightly sweet flavor to it already, so you needn’t add any sweetener.  However, I do recommend trying a thin slice of lemon with this tea.  Yum!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
