Most people have a favorite program or two they watch every week. Two of my favorites include Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. Dressed in comfy clothes and armed with a cup of Green Tea Soothing Mint tea, it was with eager anticipation that I flicked on the television. Imagine my disappointment tonight at the realization that both shows were repeats. After watching repeats from mid-December to mid-January, it was great to finally, finally watch new episodes. Instead of laughing and/or crying with my favorite characters, I’m surfing the net and working on a new pet project.
Composition: Green tea and spearmint
Dry Visual: The leaves are broken and resemble fannings. Other details are not easily discernable – the tea is contained in tea bags.
Dry Aroma: Very minty.
Flavor: Green Tea Soothing Mint is flavorful, but mild. The green tea is not easily discernible – I was unable to detect any of the characteristic green tea flavors. For example, Green Tea Soothing mint does not contain any vegetal, sappy, or grassy qualities. However, the spearmint contained in the ingredients dominates this cup of tea. If you are a lover of mint tea, you will enjoy this brew.
There is no astringency, therefore Green Tea Soothing Mint can be enjoyed without sweetener. After allowing the cup to cool, I am convinced that tea lovers can drink Green Tea Soothing Mint hot or cold.
Liquor: A rich golden yellow hue. The cup is clear.
Brewing Time: According to the directions, the recommended steeping time is 2 – 3 minutes. No water temperature was designated so I opted for 185 degrees for 3 minutes.
Manufacturer: Salada Tea
