It starts with a sharp, mint aroma as you spoon the leaves into the pot; then patiently wait for the water to come safely off the boil and add to the leaves. The mint is then lessened by the green tea prior to pouring; by which time both flavours are perfectly in balance. I thought I might not like this that much, but it has converted me - it’s delicious.
I have been ordering tea from Teacakes for a number of years. This time I decided to try Mint and Raspberry Green Tea. Myself and my wife were not disappointed, with the very smooth taste and delicate flavor of these two teas. The service ( communications and speed of delivery) was as usual 5 Star.
I’ve been buying the Mint Green Tea for some time. It helps to settle my stomach as I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome and it also tastes really good. I bought the tea cadddy as I want to take the tea to work and I’m thoroughly delighted with my purchase.
I had this tea as part of the taster selection box, whilst throughly enjoying the other flavoured green teas i found the mint flavour very strong & overpowering to the point I couldn't finish the cup.
