I find the majority of commercial mint teas to be easy too mild to be worth my time. This is the exception. You can SMELL how absolutely minty this tea is when you open it, and the aroma does not disappoint! Hot or iced, add a little honey and you’re golden! Hands down my favorite summer beverage, I could drink it by the gallon!

One of the best teas to ice that I’ve found! My boyfriend and I go through pitchers and pitchers in the summer. Very refreshing with honey!

This tea tastes like a cookie. It really does. It’s the perfect answer to those evening dessert cravings if you’re watching your waistline or your wallet. I only wish that it was a little stronger; I find I usually have to use two bags or add another bag of plain Lipton or something.

I accidentally read the name of this as Cinnamon Blossom, and that’s the only reason it made it home. I gave it a good try but it was even icky when iced. Just a strange combination of flavors… Bleh.

Probably my favorite commercial tea, this has a wonderful malty flavor that pairs perfectly with a dark agave nectar and some milk. If you can get it from the UK, I suggest you do so! A good introductory Assam.

There are few commercial bagged teas that I really enjoy, and this is one of them. I got a box on my last trip to Scotland and I will sorely miss it when it’s gone! It’s nice and light, perfect for a mid-day pick-me-up at work, especially with a little agave nectar and milk.

Eh. It’s interesting to see everyone else’s take on this blend. I don’t especially care for fruity teas, and this is no exception. It’s not bad but I only bought this because of the black tea element and those flavors are totally absent in the flavor profile of the resultant beverage. I don’t taste any mint either, just a mild fruitiness. It’s not unpleasant, it’s just not what I was hoping for. I’m going to have to try it iced, because I think that would be very refreshing, but this isn’t at all what I expected.

I like black tea, crossword puzzles, food, yarn, and my boyfriend. Everything else is hit or miss.
