Its OK"It's mostly minty, but you can certainly detect other flavours throughout. The ginseng adds a different flavour to the whole ordeal, the lemon balm gives it an overall smoother quality, and the rosemary stands boldly (I applaud your bravery, Tea Zone!)"

teazone-eight-treasures.jpgThe first thing I noticed about Tea Zone's Eight Treasures Herbal Blend is that I remember its ingredients list including spearmint, as I looked it up on the website before even choosing my list of new teas to try. I'm not big on minty teas because I consider them obscenely boring, so I wasn't sure why I chose this tea, but I figured what was done was done, so I'd best grit my teeth and appreciate the dang tea for all I could.

I'll start with a bit of advice: Do not steep this tea with a mesh ball, metal infuser, etc. It has a lot of powder and other fine leaf action going on, so you had better stick with those fantastical cloth or paper tea bags that I have fallen so desperately in love with. Unless, of course, you enjoy a lot of random specks floating throughout your tea, in which case, steep it with whatever you wish.

As I said, I find mint teas generally mundane, but I do love them when I have a cold or something of the sort. They clear the system well, and I happen to really appreciate my ability to breathe, so anything that helps me do so is worth having around. This means that I generally keep a mint tea around in winter time which I mostly ignore then have torrid affairs with whenever I get sick. Like my wanton lover, I suppose.

After several cups, I have deemed this particular version of Eight Treasures worthy of my occasional sickly, sniffly passions. It's mostly minty, but you can certainly detect other flavours throughout. The ginseng adds a different flavour to the whole ordeal, the lemon balm gives it an overall smoother quality, and the rosemary stands boldly (I applaud your bravery, Tea Zone!) out in the aftertaste. It is a refreshing take on the old mint classic.

That being said however, I must reiterate that the old mint classic is a personal staple only because colds exist, so while this is a good mint tea, it is far, far from my favourite tea. I will most likely be reserving this tea for the occasional trysts when colds come calling at my doorstep.
