Time for Tea Please?
Today I’m going to be sipping on a blend called Sense of Humour by a French based tea company called State of Mind .
State of Mind philosophy is the “Blending the timeless ritual of the tea ceremony with the art of perfumery”. A very unique way of looking at tea. Like choosing a perfume , choosing a tea it is able to generate feelings emotions which can affect your thoughts.
I’m sure like me you’ve all had sipping pleasures which take you back to a time or place. I know I have / do.

Sense of Humour
For this blend State of Mind uses Mate, Darjeeling, Lemon, Mandarin, Peach and Coriander.
Upon opening the tea envelope you are instantly hit with the aroma of Darjeeling tea with underlying notes of citrus and coriander. I am a little bit sceptical of using coriander in tea but hey I’ll give it a go.
Let’s get brewing !!
Whilst brewing the aroma doesn’t overly change. If anything it’s slightly less intense in its liquid form than in its dry state.
First sip is interesting. The combination of the Darjeeling and Mate just works. Together they provide an almost peppery musky taste.
The use of the different fruit flavours within the tea lemon, mandarin and peach. It provides an almost citrus kick to the after taste. Due to this the use of the coriander it allows the fruity flavours to intensify.
I’ve never tried Mate before which is a traditional tea from Argentina and Paraguay when combined with Darjeeling produces a traditional energy drink with vitamins B and C. Combined with the fruity notes of the blend makes it a pleasurable drinking experience.
Happy Sipping 🙂
