Bigelow Plantation Mint Tea

Okay, so just as I promised, I have already ruined my update "schedule." But it's been Christmas. I've been busy. Anyway.

Here is some tea. But this is not just any tea. This is the best tea ever. Okay, that's a bold statement. Maybe not the best ever, but it's very good. A roommate of a friend of mine introduced me to this fine beverage, and it immediately became my new default tea. It is the only tea that has been able to take the place of Earl Grey. But anyway, onto the tea itself.

This tea is delicious. It is flavored with spearmint, but it retains enough of its original, standard tea flavor to be practical. The spearmint is just strong enough to be flavorful without taking over the taste of the tea. The aftertaste is quite existent, but is not unpleasant. The drink also sustains quite nicely, as I am usually just ready to be finished with it by the end of a cup. So while it is delicious during the duration of the serving, it does not leave you disappointed afterward. In my opinion, this is an important quality of teas and "finer" beverages.

Conclusion: 10/10
It's a perfect tea. It has pretty much perfect everything. The only downside is that if you don't like mint, you won't like it. But if you don't like mint, you have bigger problems to solve.
