If it is of any consolation, I got what you were saying.
And on a side note, if any tea vendor is a bully; it is Teavana. When negative comments about teavana are made, new members, with one post, show up. At least that is how it is over at teachat. It would not surprise me if that started happening here.

I think everyone is on the same page now and there’s no need to dwell on how the information was brought up, the comment was removed. Let’s just move forward and continue discussing the topic of the discussion, thanks.

My husband loves peppermint tea…I’ve actually bought two batches of this from them during the recall posting. Thank you for posting this, I had no idea. no info on their website, no info on their facebook page. Disturbing lack of transparency.

This is not limited to Teavana/Specialteas/RemedyTeas… I received an email from Metropolitan Teas yesterday with the official recall of their Peppermint. Metropolitan Tea is HUGE and is one of the main suppliers to many of the tea companies out there, so to be on the safe side, if you’ve any peppermint tea/tisane, you might want to check with the purveyor to make sure that it wasn’t tainted.

For your reference our Peppermint tea and all blends with peppermint were not affected.

Checking now on the status of the peppermint tea I bought from Sawadee Tea House in NS a few days ago. Hoping it’s salmonella free! : )
