Numi Mint Puerh

An organic green tea blend with Moroccan mint. A slightly oxidized tea, that is then ripened and aged for months. This was my first puerh tea. I applaud Numi for using a generous 2g of whole tea leaves in each bag. However, I am not a fan of overly minty tea – it is like drinking tea with gum in your mouth. To my tastes, this would be a much more pleasant drink with none or half the mint although it is not completely overwhelming in this blend. When hot, the tea has a very earthy taste. The earthiness becomes less pronounced as the tea cools. I imagine this is not for everyone but it is an interesting quality tea. Package contains 16 tea bags.
