drank Mate Mint by Tea Desire
871 tasting notes

Received this one from Roswell Strange.

This one smells very minty. To me it is spearmint and peppermint.

The tea initially tastes like strong mint. It seems spicey to me, but I would not call it pepper. It quickly fades into what I would describe as the mate taste. I find there is an earthy taste and feel to mate. There is kind of a creaminess to it that reminds me of vanilla or tobacco (I know those two things are very different from each other but those are the tastes I am getting). I am finding that this mint blend is not very sweet, which actually I like.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
