Guayusa Mint

Standard

Tea of the day: Guayusa Mint by Stash Tea

Description:  For this signature blend, Guayusa is paired with peppermint and spearmint for a refreshing, rejuvenating blend.

Smells like spearmint candy, but with a bite in the undertone.

Liquor is a light chestnut brown in the cup

The tea still has the minty smell, but now the extra bite from before is more of a savory smell

Tea is savory first, then minty. Mouth-filling, refreshing flavor. The savory of the Guayusa works surprisingly well with the mint

Adding a little sugar makes the mint pop

Tea Rating: 3.5/5


Bit of song lyric that stuck to my brain:

“In the uncharted countries out on ecstasy’s borders you have seen the reflections”

From this, I got two images, one happy, one sad.

Bad news first:

An image of a town/city ablaze with light, looks as if the ground itself is lit up…there is a sharp border between the light of the town and the darkness of the countryside beyond it’s borders. At the edge of this border there is a girl, standing near the border of this town, but not inside it. There is a sense of loneliness and longing, and from what you can see of her, her shoulders are slumped, spine bowed.

The good image:

A person, running out of the darkness towards an overwhelming light. Behind this figure (slender, athletic, but hard to distinguish if they are male or female) there are people yelling “don’t go there, no one goes there and comes back, it’s not safe!!!” The running figure nearly flies over the border between the light and the dark, breathless and nearly glowing is exultation. They look over their shoulder and shout back “Maybe no one ever comes back because there is no reason to!!” They continue further into the light, laughing, fearlessly moving further into the unknown, no doubt in their mind that this is what they should do.


“Arthur blinked at the screens and felt he was missing something important. Suddenly he realized what it was.

“Is there any tea on this spaceship?” he asked.”
