Taster’s Review:

My oldest daughter has just recently started drinking tea.  Before that time, she would avoid tea – and I think it was more about her trying to rebel against my passion for tea than her disliking it.  One of her favorite teas is mint green tea, so I have been sharing this tea with her.  Truth be told, she’s consumed most of this tea … this is my first cup!

The mint here is crisp and refreshing.  Usually with mint teas like this one, the mint is the strongest note and it often overwhelms the cup.  But that is not the case with this tea.  While the mint is a strong flavor here, it is not the strongest flavor.  The green tea edges the mint out, providing a pleasant vegetative taste with just a hint of smoke in the background.

Not surprisingly, the white tea is a delicate flavor with this blend, but I can taste the distinctively clean, fresh taste of white tea.  The real surprise of this tea is the jasmine!  I love the way the sweet, flowery taste of jasmine lingers in the background – every once in a while it peeks through.

This is a delicious twist on the classic mint green tea – and I think I might just like it better than that classic combination of mint and green tea.  This is delightful!



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!
