This is a very delicious mint flavored green tea. It is very smooth tasting. The spearmint is cool and bright, while the green tea base is fresh with a very slight vegetative quality. Together they produce a very soothing and rejuvenating cup of tea that is just perfect after a meal or any time of the day that you need a moment of calm.
I have noticed that Salada seems to focus on simple flavors. Sometimes it is the simplest of flavors that can create the biggest impact, and this tea definitely delivers. While the spearmint is the dominate flavor in this blend, it is not so overwhelmingly strong that it tastes as though I’ve squirted a dollop of toothpaste in my cup of tea. Rather, it is a smooth, minty green tea that leaves the palate feeling clean and refreshed.
Salada describes this tea as:
Salada Soothing Mint Green Tea is a comfortable blend of traditional green tea and natural mint flavor from spearmint leaves. Traditionally, spearmint leaves have been used to calm upset stomachs and relieve anxiety. The all-natural blend of Salada Soothing Mint Green Tea has hand picked quality and smooth flavor that will soothe the body and put you at ease. After a long day, this is the blend to revitalize your healthy lifestyle.
As I’ve pointed out in several reviews lately, it’s been quite cold up here in the Pacific Northwest, so I’ve been drinking my tea hot, and only hot. However, as I sit here at the computer with my teacup and it cools slightly, I notice that the flavors do not become muted, so I suspect this would make a very delightful (and refreshing!) iced tea as well – and a slice of lemon would make it perfect.
