My first in-person conference this decade yielded a few new teas to try and to rate. This was one. As always with such "freebies", value is based on the online and/or local store price.

This is a tea I would call "socially awkward" if it were a human. It hides quietly in the corner when you expect a meaningful interaction, and gets assertive when it normally shouldn't. The three listed ingredients are peppermint, spearmint and tarragon. The latter is a first for me in a commercially prepared tea, though I've made and enjoyed tea with chopped tarragon leaves in a strainer. It makes a nice complement to a somewhat weak mint tea (both in dry-bag and in-cup aromas, as well as taste). I'm not sure why the mints were so subdued in the bags I had, both at the conference and on home well water. The flavor balance was pleasant, just nowhere nearly strong enough.

Interestingly, wet-bag scent offered the most potent sensation, with a great deal of mint oil still locked up in the leaves and wafting out when sniffed. It's a mystery why this is the case, given that I steeped for more than 5 minutes on a couple of the bags, and the leaves are fairly finely chopped. With the tarragon mixed in, this was a very enjoyable wet-bag breathing experience—borderline legit aromatherapy, and enough to bump the "aroma" rating up a full star from what it would have been otherwise. A nice mint/tarragon kick also showed up in the aftertaste, more so than in the active-drinking flavor.

I think this blend strikes a good balance between spearmint and peppermint, with both noticeable and neither overpowering the other. I can actually detect the tarragon as well; it's not as evident in the aroma, but it is a bit in the aftertaste; it's subtle but makes this tea somewhat more pleasing.

Moderately strong but not overpowering. I like brewing for 2 minutes and then making a second infusion and letting it steep indefinitely. The finely-broken leaf infuses rather quickly.

The second infusion has a very different character; it is much, much smoother, creamy almost, with a sweet, candy-like aroma.

Every time I go to Starbucks, this is the tea I order. It has a lovely spearmint taste and smell but with a good hint of gunpowder black tea to it. It is exactly what the name suggests - refreshing!
