"This is not your Grandmothers tea company" states Martin Ekechukwu, CEO and Creative Director of Village Tea Company. Originally, Village Tea Company focused on the health aspects of their tea, until after repeatedly commented on purchasing the tea for it's benefits and then discovering how good it tasted.

I was excited to try Village Tea Companies teas. They obviously care about the environment, but seem equally focused on producing great tea.

I love the recycled/recyclable packaging. It's a nice sturdy recyclable container, that keeps light away from the tea.

Mintastically Minty tea comes in individual silky triangle sachets. It's a blend of organic black tea, organic lemon grass, organic spearmint, organic peppermint. I love Organic!

I brewed it just like a regular black black tea, with fresh water brought to a boil. I was using a fairly large cup, and the box said steep for 3-5 minutes or more if you like a stronger tea. So I set my timer for 6 minutes.

I haven't been a huge fan of mint teas recently, so this tea was a great surprise. It was so good, I went and immediately brewed a second cup! It is very smooth, and I love the addition of the lemongrass!

I found that the cup of black tea was fantastic! But when I was young, I remembered drinking tea with mint leaves, so I also tried this tea with a bit of sugar and milk. This too was delicious and a touch of milk really increased the smooth creamy feel in my mouth. Honey is also a great addition.

I enjoyed this tea on a cool Autumn day. The mint is really well balanced with the black tea. Neither one overtakes the other. I know it will be nice when I am sick and I suspect it will make a fantastic iced tea as well. I am so glad I pushed myself past my "norm" and gave this mint tea a try. I am hooked!
