From Stash Tea Company

Unique blend of white tea, cool peppermint, and a hint of ginger. Adding a touch of sugar brings out the distinct flavors.

(bagged version)
I ate too much today, especially corn (polenta for lunch, tamales and corn on the cob for dinner – what was I thinking?) and now I feel stuffed! Needed something to soothe my tummy and stimulate digestion. Ginger and peppermint FTW!

You’re supposed to wait for after Thursday (unless you live in Canada or somewhere else outside of the Turkey Zone) and listen to Bing Crosby croon…watching the movie! A Dinner Theatre Group puts on the play here every year that completely copies the movie. Loads of fun if you can find one of these events to go to on a snowy night and dress retro. I did this with the grand-daughters several years ago.

My favorite Christmas crooner is Leon Redbone, and I’ll have to dig, but I think the Christmas Island CD survived our disaster…“Oh, that ol’ Christmas moon…”

Nicole

That Leon Redbone cd is great! I hope you find it!

Janefan – that is a lot of corn. :)

Janefan

Oh, Bonnie, I just adore White Christmas film. It’s my holiday favorite. A live show like you described sounds wonderful! We do have a lovely old movie house near me that shows it (and other classic films) on the big screen though.

As for this tea, it’s actually one of my year-round “must have’s” for it’s tummy soothing properties :-)

Last year this was one of my favorite teas. Now I’m looking in my cup wondering if there’s any actual tea in there. There is a strong mint flavor and then… nothing. I know that a good white tea could easily work with the mint, so I find this really disappointing. Maybe I just know what good high quality tea taste like now, or maybe last years White Christmas was superior to this year’s. Regardless, I will be moving on to other holiday teas.

I dropped the rating to reflect my current opinion of this tea.

I always feel like I have to load up the cup with more than one Stash tea bag in order to get any taste. I haven’t tried this one loose, but I guess it’s one I can avoid. Boo.

Veronica

Yeah, if I use their tea bags I’ll usually put two in my cup. Even with loose tea I add more. I don’t mind putting a little extra in, but if I’m having tea I want to taste the tea. Le sigh.

This is the bagged variety. And it’s decent. I enjoy the medley of ginger and peppermint; and the bagged variety is perfect when I’m not feeling well and not feeling like messing with an infuser/filter bag. It’s a nice tea and one I’d recommend if it presented itself to you. But I’m still not sold on whether or not you should go out of your way to find it…

Bag of undetermined age (gee, I think that may describe me, too ;) … peppermint—-got it; white tea—-maybe; ginger—-not catching it.

Not a bad minty afternoon pick-me-up, though.

K S

I have some of this. I don’t recall ever actually trying it (I’ll have to check my notes). I just assumed it was spearmint which I detest. I can’t even stand it in toothpaste. Peppermint I like.

MsWhatsit

I saw this on the shelf but haven’t bought any yet. Not looking very appealing after reading your review.

K S

I looked through my notes. The tea (rather herbal) I have is Christmas eve and it is spearmint. Christmas morning is a blend of just black teas and last time I had it I thought it was tasty.

gmathis

Yeah, I’ve had the Christmas Eve and didn’t like it at all, if I remember correctly. Toothpaste indeed. This is OK but I’m not sure it’d be worth hunting down.

This was the tea of the afternoon. The BF and I had some tea at a cafe en route to the Berkeley Art Museum and the only teas they had were from Stash so I decided to try this.

When I think of Christmas flavors, I guess I think of cookies, eggnog, gingerbread and things of that nature. This is a white tea with ginger and peppermint. It didn’t really remind me of the holidays at all, but it turned out to be a good after lunch tea because I think it helped out with digestion as well as my overall perkiness levels. I do not think I would buy this for myself, but certainly wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered.

Another Christmas teabag sample to clear from my cupboard. This one sounds interesting, I don’t believe I have had a white tea mixed with either peppermint or ginger before.

It tastes as interesting as it promised but I’m not sure if I’m a fan. The peppermint is nice and the white tea is virtually undetectable but the ginger adds a somewhat savoury edge to the blend. I like my peppermint sweet, having it savoury and herbal tasting is just a little weird. It’s not awful but I don’t think it would be something I would buy or likely drink again.

As for a Christmas tea I think the ginger takes away any festive feelings, it’s just a basic blend. Such a shame, with a name like White Christmas I thought it would be magical.

My morning cup today. I’ve been drinking this tea the last three to four years between Thanksgiving and New Year. I am finishing last years supply, and it is surprisingly still fresh, thanks to foil wrapped teabags. It’s a good Holiday tea.

In the past, it was hard to detect the Ginger-I usually never noticed it. Today I was focussed on the teas qualities, intent on noticing the Ginger if it was there. The white tea is subtle, but noticeable, while the dominant flavor is the peppermint. The description is accurate regarding the ginger. When I swirl the tea in my mouth I detect a hint of ginger. Upon swallowing the ginger hits the back of my throat. The tea-ginger included-stays nicely on my tongue. I guess in the past, I was expecting more kick and intensity from the ginger and it eluded me. The subtlety of the ginger is perfect here. I’m sure the longer steep time brings it out. Overall a really good, satisfying blend I’ve come to enjoy during the Holidays!

So, I’ve been in Orlando, FL with my family all week. I’m not going to bother trying to log the tea I drank while I was gone. I took some bags with me (Lupicia and Stash), but nothing that I only had a bag or two of, just stuff that I have plenty of so it’ll get logged at another time.

My Mom also bought me a cute tea ball that she found. Here’s a picture I found online of it: http://www.yourwdwstore.net/Disney-Tea-Ball—Mickey-Mouse_p_8196.html

So, I’m back in the office today, and congested and not feeling well from the travel. This tea sounded like it could help me feel better – peppermint for the headache and ginger for the upset stomach.

I taste peppermint, but not ginger. That’s fine, I wasn’t sure how they would mix. Perhaps there’s a bit of ginger right at the end.

It’s a nice tea, but more something that my husband would drink than me, I think.

I hope you feel better! At least brewing with a Mickey ball should make you happier, yes? :)

denisend

Heh, I don’t think I’ll actually use the ball. Only the front is open mesh, the back is solid steel (what?). Plus, I don’t like balls anyway because there’s not much room for the tea leaves to expand. When I’m drinking loose teas I’d rather do it in some type of brewer so the leaves have more room.

The ball is DEFINITELY going in the china cabinet though (which is over half tea items and about half alcohol items). It’s TOO CUTE.

Auggy

Weird on the back being solid. What’s up with that?

I have a tea ball and I used it as a strainer when I use my one pot that doesn’t have an in-spout filter. If I’m making two cups and put them close enough together, I can put one half of the ball in one and the other side in the other cup and it makes it much less messy while pouring (since I tend to pour a little into one cup, a little into the other and back and forth until they are filled). I’m pretty sure I’m a bit of a dork for doing it this way but I’ve that it works well even though I’m sure that’s not how they thought their little tea ball would be used. Hehe!

denisend

Oh, that’s a good idea – I’ve never thought of that! I bet Mickey’s ears would work for holding the ball in place just using the ball for straining into one cup. I have an English teapot without a strainer and the Yixing that I’m going to get doesn’t have one either. :-(

I have mixed feelings about this tea. I didn’t realize it was peppermint…I had Harney and Son’s Wite Christmas in mind and was looking forward to a deep, warm flavor. Still, if one has had a tough day and feels a bit bruised in the brain, I can see this tea being very comforting.

I drank the first cup plain, and got mostly plain peppermint, not too aggressive. The package recommended a bit of sugar to bring out the flavors so I tried that, and it is okay but not amazing.

I liked their Holiday Chai better, and will probably use that, Cranberry Autumn, and Boston as my holiday teas.

I found an old bag of Stash White Christmas in my “maybe someday I’ll drink this” tea chest. It’s basically a peppermint infusion. Very similar in taste to my memory of the Stash Peppermint tisane. The ingredients also list ginger and white tea, but peppermint completely dominates the blend.

This is not very good, but I’ll refrain from rating it, since it might have something to do with the fact that it is a bag “d’un certain âge” of unknown provenance.
