This Green Tea Peppermint from Tea of Life is alright but to be honest, I really expected a bit more than what I’m getting from it. The flavor is just a wee bit flat and “flat” isn’t a word that I normally would associate with peppermint.
The green tea is pleasant enough – it’s soft and buttery and doesn’t impart a strong, grassy flavor. It’s a nice complement to the herbal notes of the peppermint.
But generally when I drink a peppermint tea, I’m expecting a burst of zingy flavor. You know? That bold, refreshing, unmistakable flavor of mint? And I didn’t get that with this tea. My first few sips, I found myself thinking, “There’s mint in there?” Because it was just sort of … flat and uninspiring.
Now, as I’m about halfway through my cup, I can taste the peppermint and it’s pleasant. It feels cool and crisp and it leaves that fresh flavor on the palate. But, it’s still very lackluster and boring and mint shouldn’t be like that.
It’s as I said at the start. It’s alright but not my favorite selection from Tea of Life.
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!
