I must say the amount of great tea offerings on Etsy is a little insane. I get lost for hours on that site so often. All I have to do is type in anything tea related and then poof 2 hours later I forgot what I was originally looking for. But in doing so you find awesome companies like this one.
I swear Nichole aka Cuppageek knows me a little too well it is kinda beginning to freak me out. I have wanted to try a tea from this company for a while now but when I finally would remember to look at their site they would be sold out of everything. Then low and behold there was this little package in my box of teas to review and it was from this company!
I love green tea and honestly I don’t order it enough. I tend to lean more towards black and oolong most of the time when I am purchasing tea. But I love green tea. This is a gunpowder blend with lemon balm, spearmint and lavender. Opening up the little gold package I was immediately hit with the smell of lavender which is one of my favorite smells. Then there is a faint smell of the spearmint and lemon balm which I am happy with since spearmint can sometimes overpower a blend.
Brewed the spearmint smells a little stronger but the lavender is still the strongest scent. The flavor is surprisingly light I was expecting it to be more herbal since the lavender smelled so strong but it wasn’t. The spearmint was the stronger flavor and the lemon balm gave it a light lemon aftertaste. This is a very tasty gunpowder blend I wish I had more than just a sample but oh well. I will make sure I pay attention to their Etsy site more so I can get a full size of the next blend that catches my interest.
Here’s the scoop!
