Thank you Scheherazade for this sample. You included two tea bags which is enough for both me and my husband to try. :) He says “Thank You”.

Once steeped it has a strong mint scent with a creamy undertone. Strong yet sweet and rather fresh smelling (especially for a teabag). I did notice the teabag as to be expected contained finely chopped blend so I believe that this tea could be steeped for less time if you would prefer a light mint tea.

Flavour is strong and minty, enough to give a refreshing tingle upon my tongue. Immediately after I swallowed the vanilla came through to tone down the mint and leave a creamy, sweet after taste. It tastes like creamy mint caramel sweets I used to buy as a child. Only mildly so, really the vanilla is very subtle compared to the mint. Still it’s a very nice and simple blend, not sure it should be called butter though especially, mint cream would have been my suggestion.

I would buy this tea again to keep in my cupboard for stomach upsets.

I really liked this – it has a wonderful smell whilst brewing and tastes just like something out of a bag of boiled mint sweets!

I actually think this is far and away the best of the Twinings Sensations range. It’s the one that tastes most like it promises, and no hibiscus in sight! There’s a bonus if ever there was one. Mint and vanilla is a good combination, though — the flavours complement each other perfectly. It really does taste like a butter mint, and I think it would be great iced. One to remember for the summer.

The bag is primarily chopped mint leaves, and it heralds a very dark brown, murky liquor, as bagged mint teas generally do. There’s enough vanilla to add a wonderful creamy sweetness, though, and it actually makes a pretty perfect winter tea. This is possibly one of the few bagged teas I’d consider keeping around. Definitely worth a try.

I think I prefer the traditional mint better,though this one is not bad.

Yum. Butter mints are one of those candies I can eat a full bag of and not realize I’ve done so until I’m down to cellophane.

This tea is one of my favourites. I got it at the Twinings shop in London, and I like to drink it in the afternoon with my lunch. The flavour is very reminiscent of those after dinner mints I used to enjoy as a child on those rare occasions when we would go out to dinner. Also, the box smells of sweets, which makes me happy.
