Taster’s Review:

I am exhausted right now so I wanted a tea that was both refreshing and invigorating.  I thought maybe a mint tea would do the job so I grabbed for a tea from a company I didn’t know about until recently.

Blackbird Tea Co has a presence both on Etsy and with their own website.  They have a gorgeous website.  Simple but beautiful.  I love how the pictures of the tea are not over done and they let their sleep package do the talking.  I was sold from the moment I saw their slick canisters.

Since this is a green tea, I just used the water for our coffee machine here at work and popped the tea into the water. As I sat waiting for the tea to steep, I enjoyed the delicious mint aroma I could smell.  I felt that bit of pep that I was looking for.

Let this steep for about 3 minutes and took my first sip.  This tea delivered on the taste I was looking for.  Brisk green tea with a soothing refreshing mint that really invigorates your senses.  Green tea with mint is a pretty simple tea but it has to be done right.  Sometimes the mint can really overwhelm the tea or go the opposite way and be hardly noticeable.  That is not the case with this blend. The peppermint and spearmint play nicely together in my cuppa and the green tea provides that smooth delicate feel with hints of a roasted flavor in every other sip or so.  Very nicely done.

This tea gave me exactly what I need today.  Just a bit of pep with a gorgeous mint background.  I’m excited to try this as a mint iced tea.  I’m thinking this would be a marvelous prepared that way.  I do have a favorite Marrakech Mint from Tealated that I adore but this one is right there along with that blend.  All the different aspects are just so fantastically present and not one flavor controls the flavor.  I hope all the Blackbird Tea Co teas are this fantastic!
