So I hit the tea aisle yesterday and I find a box of this left over from Christmas. I’ve read the reviews. This can’t be that good. In the past I have walked straight past celestial seasonings because the boxes are too cute to be taken seriously. Having recently enjoyed Sleepytime Extra I decided to give this a shot.

Holy awesome peppermint blast Batman! Yes, this does live up to the hype. The vanilla is just enough to add some creaminess late in the sip. The cinnamon is barely detectable but probably just right in its supporting role. The green tea I only catch in the aftertaste. Frankly, I am OK with that. Did I mention peppermint? I think there has to be peppermint dust in the bottom of the box. Now I have got to find Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride.

I’ve been in their ‘mint room’ which is sinus cleansing! They open huge warehouse doors inside the factory and BAM! It’s the best part of the tour.

Opening the box was pretty cleansing. I can’t even the warehouse. I saw their plant on Unwrapped and was impressed with the operation. That is why I bought my first box of sleepytime Extra.

I have frequent headaches and sinus issues, I have found that smelling mint or chewing on a mint leaf will at least partially relieve some of the pain. I always try to have some sort of minty tea on hand:)

I can’t remember my own name most days, so don’t hold me to this, but I’ll try to slip a couple Sugar Cookie bags in the mail for a sample taste.

Hesper June – which type mint helps you most? I have not heard any one say this before.

gmathis – That would be awesome!

Might be having sinus migraines HJ…should check it out.All the health benefits of mint with headaches that I’ve read about are from rubbing it on your forehead with oil.

Yes, I get sinus headaches when the seasons are changing, also, I get lots of stress headaches.
I grew up around herbalists and I remember them saying things about using mint on headaches.
I have tried the applying mint externally and it did nothing for me, but if I drink a strong mint tea (Traditional Medicinals) or actually pluck mint leaves from my mint plant and eat them, I have found that personally eases my pain to at least half, sometimes more.
Also, some essential oils are okay to take internally under the tongue and this also helps me greatly. (But, PLEASE do your research on which ones are okay to do this with before using)
Peppermint is also great for nausea and indigestion.
But, if you have issues with acid reflux, I have been told it could irritate that.
`KS, I grow just a regular old peppermint and use that, also the teas and essential oils that I use, all contain organic peppermint.
