From AdventureTea, LLC

Roald Amundsen, on his historic traversal of the Northwest Passage, spent two winters on an ice-locked island in the far reaches of northern Canada. Many believe the lessons he learned from the local people were the key to the success of his mission—particularly the concept that the land will always provide for the adventurer who has the skill and knowledge to tame it.

The peppermint we selected for our Canadian Peppermint Tea exemplifies the spirit of wild Canada. It grows in the dense, cold forestland of Northern Alberta, where it endures brutal temperature extremes alongside the intrepid farmers who pick and dry it each year to warm their bodies during the long winter. The result is an exceptional mint, as cool and bold as the land that birthed it—and as hardy as those who drink it.

“We see many fine sunsets here, unique in the splendour of their colour. No doubt the surroundings in this fairyland of blue and white do much to increase their beauty.”
– Roald Amundsen

Let me state for the record that I don’t normally go for peppermint. I don’t hate it per se; I just don’t care for it. For me, the mint taste is a bit too pungent and harsh. That and it gives me crazy heartburn.

So, when I received this alongside some of the other AdventureTea wares, I dismissed it as yet another peppermint. That changed when curiosity got the better of me, and I opened the bag. Now, I know candy canes are made from peppermint, but I’d never run into a peppermint leaf that smelled exactly like candy canes.

Today, I shared a pot with my mother. I’ll be struck by lightning if I don’t admit that it’s the single most perfect mint herbal I’ve ever come across. I’ve never considered mint a perfect taste, but this Northern Canadian stuff hits all the right marks – clean, refreshing, (obviously) minty, sweet and relaxing.

The perfect Christmas herbal.

Thanks. I’ve never had peppermint quite like it.
