Recently, I went on a quest to find new tea flavors. I did some googling and came across a site for a shop called The Tea Spot. After browsing their tea menu, I decided to buy a bunch of samples. The sample size, in my opinion, is pretty big! You get enough for at least 5 servings.
The sample I decided to brew today is called Thin Mint.
It’s a roasted Japanese green tea with peppermint. There is a subtle chocolatey note and the peppermint is smooth and refreshing as opposed to in-your-face-clear-your-sinuses strong.
I think this would be a great afternoon tea!
Btw, it comes as no surprise to me that The Tea Spot is based in Boulder, CO. I will definitely look for it when I visit the family this summer.
