drank Pure Mint by Twinings
71 tasting notes

A HUGE thank you to momo for the two boxes she so generously ran out and picked up for me, then sent to me via USPS! I made my first cup after returning from the post office, and oh… it’s exactly what I was wanting! And the peppermint/spearmint combo really helps with the cold I have. So yummy! Not bitter in the slightest, and very smooth. The mints are not so IN YOUR FACE as with some peppermint teas I’ve tried(I’m looking at you, Stash!), but rather neatly blended with the black tea base. Twinings, how I love you :)

I started to say, “You just can’t ruin Twinings,” but after my recent away-from-home experience I’ll amend it to “You can’t ruin bagged or looseleaf Twinings.” Putting it in a K-cup…that’s a whole ’nother story.

This is a good one! Glad you like it too and hope you feel better soon.

Now I’m curious to see if I can find it locally.

I can’t find it at all around here. I have several stores right near me(within a 30 minute or so drive) including two Wal-marts, two Ingles, a Quality Foods, a Kmart, and a Big Lots. I could not find this one at ANY of those. I thought Ingles was the way to go, since they carry some of the other Twinings Premium black teas, but no. It was so disappointing.
I agree with you about not being able to ruin Twinings. I have not had the pleasure of k-cups, so I don’t know about that, but I’ll take your word for it!
CHAroma, thanks! I’m already feeling better, and I attribute it to getting this yummy tea. lol

I envy the folks from more urban settings that talk about the nifty varieties they can find in-store. Here in far SW MO, Wal-Mart selection stinks, and Price Cutter (a Kroger cousin) is inconsistent. Lots of Yogi’s in the organic section, but it’s potluck down the conventional tea aisle.

@gmathis – I actually found a couple boxes of this at my local Big Lots here in Clearwater, FL. But big lots is soooo hit or miss with products.

Bio

I’m at-home mother of 4, married 10 years. Tea, like knitting, is therapy for me. It’s a short reprieve from things that frustrate me. And it’s much cheaper than actual therapy. I was raised by my grandparents, both of whom enjoyed a good cup of tea, and they were already set in their ways by the time I came along. They had their tea all picked out, and we drank the same thing pretty much all the time. I just recently started branching out after discovering some new teas in a Round Robin I participated in on Ravelry(my other safe haven where my knitting progress lives), and I’ve been experimenting ever since. I recently tried my first loose leaf, Twinings Irish Breakfast, and I’ve also been getting some samples from Chado Teas. Every time I get a box or packet in the mail it’s like Christmas!

Aside from tea, my life consists of normal mommy-type stuff, of course, and I have 2 girls ages 7 and 9, and two boys ages 3 and 5. But I also enjoy photography, knitting, reading, writing, making collages, and tending to the farm. Did I mention I have 2 horses, goats, chickens, a pig, ducks, working dogs, and a couple of cats? We LOVE animals around here. I also love Dr. Who, many British comedies such as Are You Being Served?, and sarcasm. I suffer from depression and anxiety, hence the need for things to keep my hands busy and my mind on task, and I also have a sensory disorder, which includes a strong aversion to jeans and jean-like materials.

My favorite teas so far:

-Heredia Lemon Verbena
-Chai anything(except Stash, which is, for some reason, quite bland to me)
-Twinings Irish Breakfast
-Twinings Pure Mint
-Numi Aged Earl Grey
-Twinings New Zealand Breakfast
-Twinings Lady Grey

I will add more as I come across them, and some of these will probably fall off the list in favor of others I may prefer.
