If you’re the least bit familiar with me or my blog, you’ve possibly figured out that I’m kind of crazy about mint – the taste, the herb, the smell, blah blah blah. I dig it.

Needless to say, I find it very hard to pass up a box of mint tea while out shopping – brand doesn’t matter, packaging doesn’t matter, bag or loose, flavored or unflavored…if it’s minty, this sucker’s buying it.

The newest mint tea I’ve tried comes in tea bag form, and it’s courtesy of Carrington Tea (the makers of one of my favorite green teas ever). It’s Carrington’s Peppermint Tea (ingredients? 100% Peppermint Leaves. That’s it. How great is that?). I picked up a 20-bag box at Wal-Mart for – get this – $0.97. Yep, ninety-seven pennies. Okay, I didn’t actually purchase it with 97 pennies, but hey, I could have, plus a few cents tax. Anyway, the tea is really, really good. I’ve been drinking it hot (it’s how I roll), but I’ve heard that it tastes great iced, too. It’s got a tiny aftertaste that’s slightly sweet, to me at least. But I’m sort of like the princess and the pea in that regard – if there’s a sweet taste to find, I’ll find it. (I just don’t love a sweet taste to my drinks unless it’s like a frappuccino or an iced mocha or something like that; but sweetness in my tea? No thanks.)

Anyway, I still recommend this tea, and you really can’t beat the price. Peppermint is known to be good for you, and obviously herbal tea won’t hurt you, so dig the change out of your drawers or couch cushions, get yourself to Wal-Mart, and go crazy.

A pretty good tea for the price. I was a bit apprehensive about trying this tea this morning but I needed a boost. I was able to drink it plain. The tea didn’t have a bitter taste to it at all.

Nice twist on Green Tea. Not over powering – Green – and the lemon isn’t too lemony either. Nice Mix. No scent, tho. Pretty good for an inexpensive, bagged tea.
