Mint Green Oolong from My Green Teapot. . . . .

If memory serves – this is my very first experience of sipping on a tea from My Green Teapot – and I’m very excited!

Mint Green Oolong from My Green Teapot is the tea I’m kicking things off with and I have to say I’m already a fan! Talk about great first impressions!

Many of you know I’m freakishly into mint! I absolutely LOVE mint! The minty-freshness…oooooo…..ahhh! So when I saw that this Oolong Tea was mint flavored I automatically jumped for joy and then ran over to my hot water apparatus and started heating!

The fairly intense mint flavor paired perfectly with the natural Oolong punch of the leaf. The first infusion was completely impressive and the 2nd infusion also packed a powerful minty punch.

For me – this was the BEST first choice to make a first impression of My Green Teapot’s company and tea offerings! I can’t want to try their other offerings but I’m a little frightened that I won’t be able to find another one that blows this out of the (tea) water! The more I sip on this the more I adore it!

While sipping on this tea I decided to visit their website and noticed they SPECIALIZE in High Mountain Flavored Green Oolongs! WOW! How glorious! I can’t wait to try the rest of their flavors!

Mint Green Oolong from My Green Teapot. . . . .

 

If you are a fan of mint. . spearmint to be exact. . .I highly recommend you continue reading. If you aren’t a fan, this tea is probably not for you. I am a huge mint fan so I couldn’t have been more excited when this tea arrived at my door.

Never ordering from My Green Teapot, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I certainly didn’t expect the teas to arrive in adorable little take out containers. This tea instantly grabbed my attention and I quickly skipped to my kettle to prep my water.  While the water was prepping, I opened the pouch and was greeted with an amazingly intense cooling spearmint aroma.   One that I enjoyed insanely so.  Being 100% honest, the smell did remind me a bit of toothpaste, but again, being the mint fan I am, this didn’t waiver me in checking this oolong out.

Allowed to steep for a few minutes and cooled, the first sip of this tea revealed that refreshing cooling minty love I was hoping it would in a more spearmint variety.  Refreshing, cooling, and soothing with a lovely mouth feel.  The minty aroma in combination with the minty flavors gave me all the minty feels and love.   The oolong leaves are providing this wonderfully smooth texture that make me want more.

Subsequent steepings yielded the same smooth refreshing cooling flavor but the mint flavor does subside a bit each infusion.   The tea does have a note of astringency that does seem to increase each infusion as well.

All in all, I do love the experience I had with this tea.  It is a unique version of a mint flavored tea that I haven’t had before. . .and I’ve tried a lot of mint teas.  But being 100% honest, I will admit a few notes in regards to this tea.  Even  I will say that when I first opened the pouch, I was afraid that the mint was even too much for me.  This tea is immensely infused with mint, but to me this is a good thing.   I will also admit that after drinking this tea for the last couple of hours, I feel like I’ve brushed my teeth and at the same time- had a very dry mouth feel, which prompted me to drink more of this, causing more of this brushed teeth feel and dry mouth experience.

The more I think about this tea, the more I can see myself needing more of it sooner rather than later.   The tea is extremely memorable and unique.    With how much tea I drink on a daily basis, that is saying something. The cooling effect this tea delivers is one I can’t seem to get enough of. A proper cold brew of this tea is in my future for sure.
