Sipdown! (28 | 158)
I would normally reserve herbal tisanes for the evening, but I wanted to take a photo of this one, and they always look so much better with natural light. Plus caffeine doesn’t really affect me much anyway, so really I should just drink everything all the time ha ha.
Anyway, this was a swap tea from my Instagram friend @thismorningstea, and it was scrumptious! I’ve had peppermint leaf before obviously, but it was nothing like this. This tastes clean and freshly minty, with some light herbal and honey notes to it. There’s none of that weird wet rag note that I often find in peppermint. It’s almost reminding me of a peppermint candy without the sweetness, it has that more piquant sort of icy mint flavor.
So good. I think one of my next orders might have to be for some plain peppermint and spearmint from the Pacific Northwest… This peppermint is actually from China, and I’d rather order something more local if possible!
