OMG overwhelming mint, too much mint for me. However we both agree the tea itself is very well done. Not that we're gonna buy it again. Well maybe it depends how it turns out as iced tea, this could be a wonderful summer iced tea.

Post-Steep Additives: honey, lots of honey, and it was now sickeningly sweet mint

Resteep: 5 min, 16 ounces, yea still one heck of a minty brew, value for your money right here.
