||Brew It Carefully
|This tea is wonderful if you brew it right, but it is a very sensitive tea. If you follow the directions for temperature and timing strictly enough, you get a nice balance between the mint and green tea. If you soak it longer than three minutes or if the water is too hot (it should not reach boiling), the green tea overpowers the mint and the tea becomes bitter. Sometimes ginger syrup can save it if you brew it wrong.|
||Disappointed very strong smoky flavor
|I am very disappointed in this tea.
I absolutely love tea and mint.
This selection does have spearmint and that part is good but the green tea is strongly smoky flavored and has a terrible smelling scent the more it sits in my glass.
I unfortunealy ordered a lb of this and am going to have to throw it out it smells so bad and taste horrible.
I love the candy cane rooibos here and the mint in tea but absolutely will never order this green tea again here.
I have had it from other tea places and its refreshing and delicious.
Very disappointed in this smoky smelly tea.|

||The best minty green Ive tried!
|A sample from my last order! Very simple blend but very delicious! A very sweet gunpowder green base, not vegetal flavored at all with even sweeter spearmint. No peppermint, only spearmint. So refreshing and perfect for so many tea times. Its one of the best minty gunpowder greens Ive ever tried... another example of S&Vs magic. One and a half teaspoons is the perfect amount for a mug. It never gets bitter... only surprisingly sweet.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// 25 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 20 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep|
