Episode 308: Sweet Mint

sweet-mint

&pizza’s Sweet Mint is the second tea offering I tried on my recent work trip to Washington DC. Mint teas are a dime a dozen, but what makes this particular one a bit special is the brewing method.

The sweetener was added to the brewing time for the tea, so you get these nice little notes of caramel as an aftertaste, and they provide an interesting contrast to the cool, sharp mint. Cane sugar is also added to bring everything together, but not make the resulting brew too sweet. Try it with the Moonstruck pizza!
