I think it was the Christmas spirit (sorry if i am being politically incorrect :P ) that got me to buy this tea. It has a lovely mint flavor, and tastes more like a candy cane, or peppermint stick than a tea. I know it is a bit unorthodox (you can yell at me later) but i’m actually stirring this with a peppermint stick not, with just a touch of sugar, and it is great! Overall, a great tea to get you in the “Holiday” ( :P ) spirit.
Great tea! I got into peppermint during the summer when I wanted hot tea that was soothing to a sore throat but cooling at the same time. The mint gives a “cool finish,” the flavor is wonderful, and it smells so good! I tend to just leave the bag in until the cup is gone, but I like my tea pretty strong.
A great tea if you are careful about steeping time. Gets way too strong if you leave the bag in for too long. Bags don’t “age” well (so, if it takes you a long time to get through a box, I would advise buying it for autumn/winter, when apple spice is in the air, so you’ll use it up quicker). Still, one of my top teas. Smells great! Someday, I’ll have to try steeping it in cider instead of water…
Heart! I’m so glad I finally found this. I sniffed the pepperminty box all the way home from the store and was burning with anticipation. My steeped cuppa smells strongly of peppermint. The taste is more honey-vanilla, with a cool peppermint aftertaste. It reminds me of celestial seasoning’s honey vanilla chamomile…with peppermint. I love it. I just wish I’d taken note of the green tea aspect before gulping it down in the evening. Here’s crossing my fingers for sleep tonight!
This tea is good for what it is – cheap, bagged black tea with added caffeine (mate, I believe). It created to provide energy and not necessarily to be delicious; however, it is drinkable (unlike the India Spice Chai I’ve tried from CS, which is supposed to be tasty—bleargh). I prefer this to coffee when I have to stay awake for an all-nighter. However, this isn’t the kind of tea you make just to relax and enjoy. This tea requires sugar and is good with or without milk. I wouldn’t mistake this for chai, but the flavor profile is similar. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued by Celestial Seasonings.
The worst chai I have ever tasted. Prior to trying this tea, I was under the impression that chai was pretty hard to mess up. Let me preface this by saying that I am not a “chai snob”; I grew up on homemade masala chai tea and enjoy the loose-leaf varieties, but I’ve also been impressed with the not-so-expensive bagged offerings from Tazo and Stash Teas. So, I was under the impression that maybe chai was just this miracle brew that was just impossible to screw up. Yeah, I was wrong. I’ve tried this chai with and without milk, with and without sugar, light steep time to long steep time, different temperatures of water. Every single time it comes out tasting like bitter cardboard marinated in cinnamon. I don’t know how else to describe it. Avoid at all costs and try Tazo or Stash if you’re looking for bagged chai.
