Adagio Teas - Peppermint (Herbal)

Characteristics

  • Nose: Super warm refreshing peppermint (9/10)
  • Brew: Medium Brown 
  • First Note: Strait forward refreshing mint  (8/10)
  • Body: Quickly after the smooth taste of the mint fills the mouth the strong effervescent bitters of the peppermint excites the tongue   (9/10)
  • Finish: A refreshing pure peppermint aroma lingers while the effervescent action of the peppermint causes the mouth to water (9/10)

Brew

Volume tea: 8 heaping teaspoons
Water: 1000ml
Temp: 212*
Time: 5 Minutes




Verdict

I am no stranger to mint teas, one of my favorite evening beverages has always been a bag of mint tea, so it is without surprise that larger purer leaf options such as this one delight. The crisp pure peppermint both excites the nose, the mouth and the lungs. It begins crisp and finishes clean and moist. This will be a large reorder. I am curious to try a second brew as well as seeing how the peppermint compares to the spearmint and how I might be able to combine them.
