GARDE LA FORME
Tea type: herbal tea
Brand: Fine Tea
How to prepare it: 5 minutes, 95°C (200 °F)
Immediately you can smell the strong scent of mint - spearmint - cold and tingling. There are also other herbal scents, but they are totally covered by the mint. However it's quite a sweet herbal tea.
Extremely consistent to the dry one;
At the beginning there is a strong and glacial mint, as before, but there is something more. Its really a thick, but hugely closed, taste, which doesn't easily reveal its secrets. Then some herbal notes comes out, but they doesn't recall to something in particular.
There is no bitterness, with a sweet and
refreshing taste. Slight balsamic mint aftertaste.
An herbal tea which makes mint its main flavour: fresh, full-bodied and nicely balsamic. Sadly all the other scents are quite covered by the mint, making this herbal tea closer to a mint green tea, without its typical bitterness and astringency.
My score is 7.25/10
