The taste is mint. I like that they mixed the spearmint tea with green tea for a little kick. However, I do not like the fine grind of the mint tea. It makes a mess in the tea cup and I hate pieces of tea in my tea when I am drinking it. I will try another strainer for this tea. Currently I am using the KATI® STEEPING CUP & INFUSER and I have tea pieces all through my cup of tea.
