I’m having this one today, just by itself, because I’m feeling a sore throat coming on, possibly even some voice loss, and I wanted something simple to have with my afternoon snack. The mint here smells mostly of peppermint, but there’s some smoother spearmint notes there, too… might be my imagination, though, since it’s pretty subtle.

Mmm, nope, there’s definitely some spearmint in there (or maybe it’s just mine). Peppermint has a bite, and spearmint is much smoother, and this is definitely a smooth mint. It does linger in your mouth, like peppermint, but it goes down so nicely… If you’re looking for just straight-up mint, but don’t really care for a plain Jane mint leaf tisane, look no further! :) I’m not in the mood for this one often, but it’s quite delicious, for a mass-produced bagged tea.

As long as you don’t steep this one too long, it’s a very decent tea. Not TOO artificial with the peach flavoring (although I’m not gonna lie, it is a little bit artificial). It would probably be dee-licious as an iced tea, but I haven’t tried it yet. I definitely will, though. :)

Makes a good, strong cup of tea. One of my favorite black fruit teas.

First cup of the day enjoyed after a simple breakfast. It was the last in the tin, so I assume my mom must have quite enjoyed it. The flavors weren’t as distinct as I was expecting—even after letting it steep for several minutes—but it was still enjoyable. Afterward I checked the container and the “best used by” date was long passed, so perhaps that’s why. I recommend it nonetheless.

Preparation

For an ALDI house brand tea, this makes a surprisingly good jug of iced sun tea. More ginger and peach than Assam flavor, but when it’s 97 and there’s a heat advisory extending through the next 48 hours, subtlety doesn’t matter much. Just mildly fruity and cold.

Fresh-tasting notes of ginger and peach are the most outstanding characteristic of this tea. Makes a fine cup, but needs a little extra steep time for the flavor to fully develop.

This was a nice middle of the road tea. Not very highly scented and not overly flavorful but still relaxing and something different to try.

Very light in color for a black tea. Smells wonderful. Nice Mint taste without being over the top. Refreshing and Fun.
