drank Pure Peppermint by Twinings
2145 tasting notes

Twinings tea has been a staple in my family my entire life and even now I like to keep a box of Pure Peppermint on hand for when I’m sick. I’ve got the stomach flu so I ran through a good portion of the box yesterday, but it was nice not to have to worry about measuring, checking water temperature and cleaning out my steeper. I made my tea, threw away the bags, and went back to bed to curl up in a little ball and continue wishing the world would go away.

With a toddler that didn’t happen, but he did a great job nursing me back to health by bringing me pretzels (and sticking them up my nose when I wouldn’t move.) I have the best baby ever, although I’m sure every mother says that.

Even when I’m not sick this tea is comforting, I take it on the road with me because it is great for soothing my throat that constantly gets sore from overuse and my stomach from less than healthy eating. It isn’t the strongest peppermint tea I’ve had, but it is one of the best bagged peppermint teas out there, which is why I still keep a box around.

It’s so important to have easy, effortless but comforting teas around for times like these. I hope you feel better soon!

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Single Origin Teas, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
