“The aromatic Oregon- and Washington-grown peppermint we’ve selected for this tea tastes so fresh and delicious that it requires no accompaniment – it’s the only ingredient here. Once reserved for exclusive use in cakes and candies, the whistling cool freshness of pure peppermint from the great Pacific Northwest is yours to enjoy in this comforting brew."

Once again this is a pure peppermint tea but it just doesn’t taste quite as good or as smooth as the last few pure peppermint teas I drank. The ingredients says “Peppermint” and it almost tastes like it is made with a breath peppermint rather than peppermint leaves.
I woke up with a headache this morning so I thought a good cup of mint tea might hit the spot and make me feel a little better. I’ve had this tea once before but I left it to steep far too long so it was incredibly bitter. Today’s cup is just a little bitter still, but it’s good. Certainly nothing remarkable or special.
I love peppermint tea. It helps to soothe and relax me. It makes a perfect cup before bed. This is a good peppermint tea until you’ve had a better one. It isn’t quite as peppermint-y as I’d like it to be. The peppermint flavour is there, but seems dull. It’s good, but not great. I like a bright peppermint tea that has maximum peppermint flavour. Still, this brand is sufficient until a better one comes along. Since I’ve already found a better peppermint tea that I prefer over this one, I won’t give this one a re-purchase.
I still had a couple of bags of this tea hanging around in the kitchen from the days before I discovered loose leaf tea. Since I’ve been sick this week, I decided this was a good time to use them up. And I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this was. According to the ingredients list, it’s pure peppermint leaf with no additives. And it steeps up nice and smooth with a true mint flavor. It’s not something I’d reach for every day, but it’s a great comforting herbal for when you’re sick. I may just have to re-stock on this one!
