Smooth mint tea that goes well with chocolate goodies. It also helps to ease digestive embarassments if you’ve overindulged in dinner. Be careful not to oversteep or it can get too strong. Although Bigelow advertises that you can make two cups out of one Plantation Mint tea bag, I found the second cup to be rather weak. I like sniffing the foil pouch the tea bag comes in. I’m not the only one, am I?
67 Tasting Notes
The only tea I’ve ever had where black pepper was an ingredient. This is Super Chai and goes very well with dessert or Asian food, especailly curry. As noted before, it can be overpowering if you drink more than one cup a day because the mouth will start to burn.
Second worst tea I’ve ever tasted — hot or iced. It tastes like liquid St. Joseph’s aspirin. Had to throw out the box. Lipton should be ashamed of themselves (if they are capable of shame).
Drinking this was like drinking hot cough syrup. Mom tried to make iced tea from it but had to dump it. It was so bad that I actually wrote to Salada and complained that they should be ashamed to put such crap on the market. They responded with a wad of coupons for all types of Salada tea.
Tastes nasty — especailly for someone who doesn’t like licorice. But it can help soothe clogged sinuses and sore throats. I found it helped ease the pain of sinus headaches while waiting for the Benedryl to kick in.
Only recommended if you’ve been stranded on a desert island for six months, get rescued and the rescuers offer you a cup.
Highly recommended herbal tea, especailly paired with dessert, peanut butter sandwiches or cheese. Individually wrapped, too. I don’t know about you, but I like to sniff the foil pouch after I take the tea bag out and this pouch smelled like Juicy Fruit gum. However, the tea does not taste like Juicy Fruit. I wonder if the “natural flavors” listed include any dandelion and burdock, which make up the core flavorings of Juicy Fruit gum.
I found this in Stash’s Organic assortment. It’s very smooth and not as powerful as Stash Double Bergemeont Earl Grey or even Stash regular Earl Grey. I can’t detect any bitterness usually associated with green tea. I now only drink this tea to reward myself for doing something I’ve been putting off — otherwise I’d probably just spend my days drinking tea and not not doing much else.
I initially avoided this tea, thinking it would be like Celestial Seasoning’s “Blow Your Head Off” Peppermint. But I read Jillian’s suggestion to try this tea. I’m so glad I did. It’s now become one of the daily after dinner teas Mom and I drink. It’s sweet, minty, doesn’t rev you up and soothes the digestive tract. Thanks again, Jillian.
So strong it should be called “Blow Your Head Off With Mint”.
Very good, but you have to plan in advance whenver you are goign to drink this because of the borderline amphetamine affect. However, if you’re constipated, one cup may help gt things moving again. I think this was the tea featured on a “Mad About You” episode.
Classic. It’ll only make you sleepy if you chase a Xanax down with it. However, it does help to relax the innards if you have cramps or a digestive embarrassment. I think it also helps ease sore throats. Like Caitlan said — a great companion to sweet treats.
Best chamomile ever. You need hardly any sweetener with it. I’m really annoyed that my local grocery stores no longer carry it.
One of Tazo’s best and I’m not overly fond of green tea in general. Highly recommended for the afternoon and when trying to ease cramps. My Mom likes it both hot and iced.
Kick-ass tea, especailly for winter or those days you have to get up at 3am for some nefarious reason. Just be sure only to have one or two cups a day or you’ll have to be pried off of the ceiling.
Wimpy, wimpy, wimpy…even after brewing for five minutes. A real disappointment from such a good brand likeTwining’s.
Not as robust as Murchie’s English Breakfast tea, but better than most American brands. Keep an eye out for the expiration date. Needs only a little milk or cream. Because Muchie’s now only has one official shop, some grocery and beverage suppliers seem to be clearing their warehouses.
I used to livein England for five years. When I returned to America, loosing my favourite tea brands was disappointing. But Red Rose was the closest I found of an easily available cheap and cheerful tea.
Try drinking a cup of mint tea and then making a Red Rose as the next cuppa in the same mug. Gives the Red Rose a nice hint of mint, but not enough to overpower the flavour.
