Water: 6oz

Leaves: Tea Powder

Steep: Instant

Aroma: Soft mint

Color: Murky Olive Green

Taste: I can start of by saying the aroma of this tea was nice,not strong mint as you would get from pure peppermint but rather soft. This time I did something completely different and used boiled water instead of letting it cool as i normally would. I saw other tea reviews used hot water so i decided to give it a go. The color was a murky olive green with no clarity. I also noticed as this tea sat it tends to separate you can swirl it and see the changes. As for the taste it was bland, very bitter & unpleasant. I couldn’t finish taking my third sip, another cup I couldn’t drink. Three reviews down two more to go~

Thank you Chi Whole Leaf for this sample

I really got into tea early(2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

I’m apart of Teavivre Free tasting activity,I joined after making my first purchase with them.
Thank you Angel & Teavivre
