Authentic Teas Wild Mint

Like most of Authentic Tea’s offerings, this selection is USDA Organic and sourced from the Armenian highlands. The dry leaves were sage green in color and bore a close resemblance to catnip. This isn’t surprising since catnip is in the mind family. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 212 degree water for five minutes. The liquor was a deep golden yellow.

This tea was sweet and minty but not to the point of being bitter or medicinal tasting. Each sip was very refreshing with a very fresh aftertaste. This would make a perfect after dinner tea or summery iced tea. I love that it was so naturally sweet that it really wouldn't need any sweeteners. I would definitely recommend this tea.
