Over the last few years, peppermint blends have started to grow on me. Therefore, I wanted give this blend a try because it only has two ingredients – tea and peppermint!
Description: “A simple concept of blending green tea with mint leaves involves a complex process to make this delicious tea possible.”
Instructions: 2 teaspoons | 200°F | 3 to 5 minutes
Review: The dry blend had an strong peppermint smell and reminded me of candy canes. The blend was dark green with a mixture consisting of peppermint and dark green rolled gunpowder tea. When the hot water was added to the blend, there was a nice whiff of peppermint. The blend was infused for 4 minutes and the remaining wet blend had an overwhelmingly strong peppermint smell.
There was also a had a nice tingle in the back of the mouth from the clear golden orange liquor because of the peppermint. The taste was dominated by the peppermint and lingered in the mouth. When letting the liquor cool, the flavour was much more mellow. The one issue I noticed is there is a slight discrepancy between the Lemon Lily website and what is on the pouch. I had this as blend in the afternoon and found it relaxing (3/5 rating)!
