This tea is exactly what I needed today!
Work has been pretty stressful so I needed an easy going tea that would be forgiving (if i oversteeped) and wouldn’t taste bitter if I had to leave the brew to cool. I quickly grabbed this one, Emerald City from Oh You Tease, an Etsy Tea Shop that I instantly fell in love with.
Brewed up with freshly prepped water and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this tea yielded an absolutely gorgeous take on a mint green tea blend. Strikingly on target with the perfect amounts of roasted green tea buttery richness with a hint of vegetal tones and mint. Refreshing, cooling, all you need in a mint green tea and more. I love how both ingredients are allowed to shine and one flavor isn’t overshadowing the other.
Very well done. Simple yet brilliant. Exactly what I was looking for today. I’ve infused the same leaves at least 4 times and I’m still loving the flavor!
Here’s the scoop!

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
