This peppermint tea is positively delightful. I found it at the grocery store, oddly enough, and although it was on the expensive side (I believe $8.95 for 45g), I’ve been trying to find a deep, flavourful, earthy, sinus clearing, eye stinging, strong peppermint. So, I was willing to shell out a little bit of extra cash in the pursuit of this tea.
First off, I love its simplicity. I know, I know, why wouldn’t it be simple? It’s peppermint. But there’s something so innocent and sweet about peppermint tea.
This one is actually quite strong. I used 3 tsp for about 20 oz. I also used my Brewt (http://www.brewts.com/brewt_brewt.cfm) for this tea, in order to extract all of its peppermint-y delight. I’m also being a weirdo and pouring it out of my Brewt sip by sip, just so it stays hot and keeps steeping. But hey, I can do it, so why not?
It’s currently a perfect amber liquor. I am enjoying it immensely. It has succeeded in actually: Burning my eyes, clearing my sinuses, and has accomplished a deep, full body. But where is the earthiness? When I say earthiness, I almost want my peppermint to have a bit of a raw, dirt-like taste underneath. I don’t want my peppermint tea to taste like dirt, but I want it to taste like it came from the ground. A little bit. Of course, I’m comparing to the best peppermint tea I’ve ever had – and you can only purchase it at Ste. Anne’s Spa (or online) here in Ontario, which runs at $14 per 35g. http://www.steannes.com/tea.html.
Anyway, in conclusion, for a grocery store purchase, it’s all systems go. GOOD ENOUGH!

Bio

I am a student on a mission to spend all of my hard earned cash on tea, and don’t have time to waste on a bad cup of tea!
I love DavidsTea, mostly because it is easily accessible for me and I like my tea on the sweeter side. I’m looking to expand further into the tea world, especially in terms of oolong and herbal teas.
My favourite teas are anything spicy, especially with cloves and/or cinnamon, anything nutty, minty, earthy, floral or citrus-y.
I am forever on a mission for a life altering grapefruit tea.
