Playing catchup with this posting. Pulled it out for Christmas Eve and remembered why it had been sitting around for so long. Totally agree with the others that mentioned the strong mint taste. While I like spearmint gum, this is just too much mint and not enough tea flavor.

There isn’t supposed to be “tea flavor” – this is an herbal tisanne. No tea in it.

True this is a herbal tea. This also is unique in that the bulk tea does not have the same ingredients as the tea bag. I should have specified that I tried the tea bag version. My comment about tea flavor was meant more generic than a specific black tea taste. This experience was more like drinking hot water with a stick of gum for the stir stick. As always this is my own impression. A friend enjoys this tea very much so I passed the box on to her.

Ah – ok, I think I understand what you were going for then. And actually, it’s common for Stash teas to have a slightly different blend in loose leaf, although it’s less common among other tea brands.
