Helps is a pharmaceutical company that also makes teas for general well being. this tea, the organic green tea, is served in bags. the leaf is small and cut up into particles that would be known as fannings.

This was brewed western style in a 6 ounce mug, using 175 degree water for three minutes.

This blend contains organic green tea and spearmint. At first, the mixture of the two flavors caused some trouble, yielding a bright flavor reminiscient of hot pickle juice.

I waited for five minutes to let the tea cool down in an effort to blend the flavors together. The cooler liquor was very refreshing, with a more pronounced sweetness and little to no flavors that I had noted when the liquor was hot.
The color of the liquor started out as a bright pale yellow that turned into a darker, almost green color after cooling for a few minutes. This change in color had to do with exposure to the air, as well as the fact that some water had escaped as steam, leaving the brew slightly more concentrated.

Overall, this tea has pleasant, simple charm. Flavors of spearmint gently blend together with the lightly sweet and vegetal flavor of the green tea, making it more appropriate as a tea for winding down in the evenings.
