Three years ago, I tried a sample the people from Le Palais des Thés offered me when buying some other teas, and I reviewed the tea saying that it was like drinking a polo mint, so I liked it and would buy me a pouch.
In meantime, I did buy me a pouch of this minty green tea, and until this week I had only really taken it hot. As stated in my first review, I really like that it´s minty without being a sugar bomb. This week, I´ve been cold brewing it as well, and today I even had both, to compare.
I admit I adjusted the way of coldbrewing in this case, reusing the tea leaves from the hot brew and adding another teaspoon, for the cold brew…also, the temperature of the water might have been a bit higher and the steeping time quite a lot longer…but the resulting iced tea is really nice : like a “menthe à l´eau” with all the freshness of the mint and lacking the siropy touch of it, so just keeping what I appreciate most of it. And yes, I score it slightly higher than the hot brew as well.

Flavors: Peppermint

Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
