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.
