drank Plantation Mint by Bigelow
517 tasting notes

I feel a little bad for trying all of these teas and not liking many by Bigelow. It doesn’t matter what flavors I try either. Almost all of them seem to be too weak for me.

Then again, almost every mint tea I have tried has been like that. This tea isn’t bad. It tastes mostly like an even-flavored black tea with a hint of mint flavor. I am rating this lower because I have been looking for a tea that screams MINT! to me. This one mumbles.

I have been thinking about buying some Vanilla Mint, Chocolate Mint, Lemon Mint and regular Mint plants from a local supplier and just growing mine for my own MINT-MINT tea? Mmmm some dried Vanilla Mint added to hot chocolate?!?!

That sounds fantastic! I think I might see about drying my own herbs to use in cooking and tea. I have been wanting to do it with lavender but all of those different mint plants sound really good. Maybe then it will finally be minty enough.

Bio

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
