I’m waiting for tea
The kettle won’t call
I forgot to plug it into the wall.

That’s much better
My peace unfettered
Tea for Two just can’t be beat
Won’t you have a cup with me?

Taste Test/ Tea Review
I did this taste test a while back, but it was so unspectacular that I put it on the back burner and thought about tossing it. However, if you don’t throw the baby out with the bath water that baby might be useful again? No wait, the baby is good. It’s the bath water that’s bad. The bath water might be useful again? Eww. I guess that’s just a bad analogy.
Back in February–while ordering my mom’s birthday gift–I noticed that there was a mint tea that I’ve never tried: Super Mint. I have to say, the first thing that I noticed about this tea is that they named it poorly. If you’re going to focus on it’s strength, why not call it Mighty Mint? Mighty Mint gets stuck in your head.
The second thing I noticed is that it’s not so super. I’ve met some people who I think are pretty super, but this tea didn’t live up to it’s name. The first cup I tried left me asking the question, Is this really any mintier than my peppermint tea? I had to do a taste test!
I really can’t tell the difference. There’s a slight taste difference, but the mintiness of both teas seemed about even, or the Super Mint was a little less minty. I downed both pots, yet, I still wasnt 100% sure.
It would have made more sense to draw attention to the fact that this is a wild mint tea. I didn’t even know this until I took a closer look at the box. If I were to name it, I would have gone with something like “Wild about Mint.”
I’m sorry to say it, but this tea just doesn’t deserve a cape. I fell for the advertising. Well, sort of. I wanted to see if it’s claims were true.
Though manufacturers may false advertise (whether they believe their claims, or not) God Himself doesn’t lie. He isn’t human. He even invites us to do a taste test. Thus far I can still say that Jesus has lived up to all that He claims and more, and like a good cup of tea He’s good for our weary dry bones. I do find peace and comfort when I spend time tasting and seeing that He is good. Now that’s more than super.
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.”Psalm 34:8
I’ll be doing another taste test. When I ordered our last batch of groceries they substituted Moroccan Mint for my Peppermint Tea. This Mint war is on, baby. It’s time to throw that baby back into the bath water. (A new batch of bath water, of course.)
Taking a look at the variety of Mint teas that Stash offers, this mint war could go on for a while. Peppermint wins the first battle. How will Moroccan Mint fair? How will I make these challenges interesting? How much Mint tea can one Canadian gal stand? Stay tuned for future “T Tastes Tea.” She’s all in now. #InfiniTEAwar
