Yawwwnnnnn boy did this make for an unremarkable cup of tea. I had this at the hair salon, and was actually expecting to get served a cup of plain green tea. Kinda disappointed to taste the mint.

While I do like mint teas, something about this was just ‘meh’. Now I’ve had Moroccan mint tea, and I just can’t picture this blend with sugar in it as the description suggests. It’s not really much better than some of the shlock you can find at the grocery store. I do think Zhena’s has some good teas, but I am ambivalent about this one. Maybe it was oversteeped.

Good, but not fantastic. It is soothing, but if you dare steep it over 3 minutes it turns bitter.

This is the last remains of a sampler gift set. It tastes like a mint blend with a lingering bitter aftertaste. No actual green tea flavor. If the stevia is supposed to sweeten, it’s not working. It’s … okay, not amazing. I can’t think of any situation where I would actually /want/ a caffeinated mint tea instead of a legit black or green, and if I wanted a sweetener I’d rather add it myself.

Don’t take it personally, Zhena’s, your other teas are very nice.

EDIT: Another reviewer suggested putting a tea bag in a bottle of cold water. I can see that possibly working.

I saw the little sampler pack that contains this, Raspberry Earl Grey, and two others that I don’t remember at TJ Maxx for about $5 and decided it was worth a try. The Raspberry Earl Grey was really what drew me in, but I’m interested in sampling all of the flavors.

This one is such a strong mint smell dry, it will definitely clear your nose out. I steeped this one up, and really all I’m getting is the mint. While not bad by any means, I can’t tell a difference taste wise between this and a mint tisane/herbal. The only benefit I see of drinking this one over an herbal is if you want the caffeine, but otherwise there doesn’t seem like a lot of difference.

So not bad, but it doesn’t stand out either.

I got this tea in a sampler tin from Kroger. The packaging caught my eye, but I ended up buying it because the flavors sounded heavenly.

I found this tea to be very earthy and it balanced out the mint. Neither was too overwhelming. It was a chilly day where I live, so this was a treat for me. It tastes like it would be a good pick-me-up, even though it doesn’t have very much caffeine in it. I would recommend this to anyone that loves a good mint tea.

By far my favorite of the sampler and officially one of my favorite green teas ever. It is just so smooth and soothing. What first caught my attention was the ingredient list. ONLY THREE INGREDIENTS!!! Recognizable and pronounceable ones at that. Green tea. Peppermint. Licorice root. I never would have thought peppermint and green tea would make a good combo. This is a match made in heaven. Or should I say “matcha”… Tea puns aside no sugar needed and not the least bitter even after a 3.5 minute steep.

Backlogging from yesterday.

This is a pleasant, light, sweet tea. It’s nice because the green tea base is mild, which allows the sweetness of the mint to come forward without forcing it to taste like mouthwash.

This tea was an okay mint tea – it wasn’t powerful enough for me but it was tasty. I’ll finish the sample up but likely won’t buy it again. It wasn’t bad just wasn’t AMAZING
