Sipdown! (45 | 118)
This was a free sample with my last order, and I was happy to see it, since it’s one that I considered getting!
The green base here is actually quite nice, with rich buttery and nutty notes and a silky mouthfeel. It feels thick and satisfying on the tongue, probably helped by some of the herbs.
I like the freshness of the spearmint here, but the other three ingredients sort of get muddled together. It doesn’t taste lemony really, just “herbal”. I would guess it has peppermint by the flavor, but it doesn’t, so it must be the lemon verbena that’s giving me that same sort of vibe.
So it ends up being more of a mint green tea with some extra stuff. It’s tasty enough, but not something I would feel the need to order. I would be interested in other blends on this green base though, as green tea is often so generically grassy and this one is quite yummy.
