Well, I have never had this particular tea before but so many people seem to love it! I was at Whole Foods tonight at decided to pick some up to try it.

First off, it is VERY minty. I can taste way more peppermint than any of the other ingredients, with cinnamon off in the background somewhere. I don’t taste too much vanilla and I decided to add a bit of coconut sugar because I felt it needed that to be more like a Candy Cane.

Ummm… I was hoping this would be a little less minty and have slightly more green tea and the other flavors. Sometimes peppermint gives me heartburn but of course I had to try it anyway! Still, it is a fairly nice tisane and most likely I will finish the box off someday. :)

One of the best things about the tour of Celestial Seasonings is the Mint Room. You step into a separate room that is like you shrunk and jumped into a mountain of this tea. The scent almost knocks you down.

Wow – I can only imagine. I felt like it was overwhelming when I was drinking it!

Is it still raining in S.F.?

TeaBrat

Not right now! :)

It’s not a tisane; it’s make with decaffeinated green tea! I forget that, too… and so does my boyfriend, who hates green tea but loves this tea! How did you think to find coconut sugar, and why did you add that particular kind of sugar to this tea?

Hi Jolt, I bought the coconut sugar at Whole Foods just to try it. I don’t know what inspired me to put it in this tea but it was nice!

Jolt

Oh, cool! Thanks! :)

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
