As far as peppermint goes, this has the flavor of peppermint but it isn’t fresh. More like dry, stale and life-less. I’m severely disappointed with this tea and if hadn’t have been so cheap I probably would have expected more or at least my money back. It is so fine that you have to use a tea bag or a strainer with tiny holes. Even then there is a lot of sediment that comes through in the tea.
