Taster’s Review:

When I first steeped this tea, I steeped it at a low temperature (as I generally do with green teas) for three minutes.  And, I found that the flavor was very mild, to the point of being very difficult to discern.  So, I decided to steep it for another two full minutes, and the flavor was a little stronger.  A drizzle of agave nectar really helped the flavors to pop.

The Sencha base is smooth and sweet with a creamy buttery note.  The pineapple and papaya flavors lend their sweet tropical flair to the cup.  The pineapple has a nice tangy note to it that tickles the tip of the tongue in the aftertaste.

As I mentioned at the start of this review, these flavors are a bit on the softer side.  But that’s OK, because the Sencha is front and center here and that is the way it should be. It is a light, refreshing cup that is a pleasure to sip.  This is good iced, too, but I would recommend adding a little bit more sweetener to it to help enhance the flavor.

Taster’s Review:

Clean and Crisp!  That’s this cuppa to a “T” (or TEA)!

The leaf is pure spearmint – no extra herbs or fillers – just pure spearmint.  It has a fresh flavor that is uplifting.  It is also an excellent choice to enjoy after a spicy meal because spearmint aids in digestion … and leaves you feeling minty fresh too!

Spearmint has long been used for medicinal purposes.  As I mentioned, it is a digestive aid.  But it also can help alleviate stress, reduce fevers and increase mental alertness.

And these are all good reasons to enjoy an infusion of pure Spearmint Leaf.  But, all of the healthful benefits don’t really mean much if it doesn’t taste good – but this… tastes great.

Smooth, minty and fresh.  Everything you’d expect from a pure leaf, and nothing you don’t.  Excellent served hot or iced – perhaps with a thin slice of lemon?  Refreshing!
