This is another one from the Palais des Thés mini-tin set I bought on MyHabit a little while ago. I must admit, I’m a bit scared of this tea. It managed to make the entire package smell like peppermint extract… And not in a good way, either. This one is also a sencha green base, and it has a very harsh and strong peppermint aroma that doesn’t really appeal to me… Hopefully it’s not as strong when steeped.
Luckily, the aroma has toned down a bit in the steeped tea, although it still reminds me more of straight-up peppermint oil rather than the leaves themselves. The mint is a little too much for me in the taste itself, it’s almost tingly in my mouth. This one is definitely not for me, heh. :P
Flavors: Biting, Peppermint
