Stash Peppermint is produced exclusively from top quality Oregon grown peppermint, which is considered the world’s finest. Oregon’s deep rich soil, moist cool winters and long dry sunny summers provide mint growers with the natural tools to produce peppermint. The mint is harvested in July and August and when properly cured (or dried) it is sold as leaf or to produce peppermint oil. Stash Tea purchases its mint leaf directly from Oregon farmers. It is sent from Oregon fields to the Stash Tea plant where it is packaged to protect the freshness and menthol content. Nothing else is ever added to our Peppermint tea. The result is a soothing, refreshing, aromatic drink that is superb hot or iced, any time of day.

Cut the bag open to let it steep free in the water. I don’t mind swallowing peppermint dust.
Some background – I got turned onto Stash by the person I consider to be my true grandmother. I have to say, when I realize more and more that this brand is really no better than Kroger Private Selection, with the added insult of smaller tea bags, I start to feel sorry for my deceased gramma, and wish she had been able to save money on Kroger’s store brand tea, or at least on Celestial Seasoning’s own spin on this tea.
Disappointed, because of its lack of strength. Am drinking it cold, and frankly, it tastes a bit like toothpaste. I mean, it is really cooling, but it is lacking severely in any real flavor.
I got a bunch of dust sitting on the bottom of my cup like so much sludge, and no real flavor to show for it, after I paid a bit more for less tea from a brand I was taught to trust.
My tummy is a little unhappy today (I should NOT have eaten lunch a the mall. I know better), so I’ve had a couple of cups of this today. It might not be a cure, but it can’t hurt. Peppermint tea should always be in the tea chest, and this one is as good as any bagged tea and better than some.
Is it WRONG that I like bagged tea? I mean, a lot of bagged teas are not as high a quality as loose leaf, but it’s so darned convenient.
Leaves: Tea Bag
Steep: 3m, 5m
Color: Golden brown
Taste: This is my first time reviewing a Stash Tea! The foil packet is a vibrant green which also matches the tag attached to the tea bag. Upon removing the tea from the packet the aroma was amazing a nice strong scent of pure peppermint! As for brewing I decided to do something different I warmed my tea cup. The brewing method was also changed slightly brought my water to a rolling boil & let it cool for 1 minute. The peppermint aroma remained present after the steeping process making drinking a pleasant experience. Taking a sip the tea is light in flavor but leaves a nice cooling sensation in the mouth that lingers as you continue to drink. The clarity is also great clear to wear I can see the bottom of my cup. Overall I feel this makes for a nice cup of tea!
Special thanks to my friend for this sample
I had a cup of this while I was out at dinner last night. I really like peppermint, so I knew I wouldn’t dislike it, but I will say that this seems like a good quality peppermint. It had no bitterness to it, just a refreshing minty flavor, unlike some lower quality peppermint I’ve had in the past.
