A very tasty mint tea – I’m drinking it tonight for an upset tummy. :( It certainly helps, and it’s quite refreshing. I added a few drops of honey.

“The aromatic Oregon- and Washington-grown peppermint we’ve selected for this tea tastes so fresh and delicious that it requires no accompaniment – it’s the only ingredient here. Once reserved for exclusive use in cakes and candies, the whistling cool freshness of pure peppermint from the great Pacific Northwest is yours to enjoy in this comforting brew."

So this isn’t Celestial Seasonings, but Steepster won’t let me add this tea, so I’m forced to write under a different name. This is Good & Delish Peppermint and it’s cheap, drugstore tea. It’s pure peppermint and nothing else, so it’s pretty good. It’s not as good as when I pick peppermint from our yard in the summer, but it’s relaxing for when I’m at work.
The walnut tea from this morning left a burnt sensation in my mouth, so I needed something soothing. It’s almost like it burned me, but I didn’t drink it when it was THAT hot, so it must be some weird reaction I’m having to the tea. It’s NOT a pleasant sensation. Hopefully the peppermint will wipe it out completely.
Another in my Celestial Seasonings’ Herbal Tea Sampler. I Added about 1/2 tsp of sugar.
I’m drinking this about 10 AM. The mouth feel is definitely minty and I think if I were at home I’d add agave rather than sugar. It’s tasty as long as I don’t let it cool down, but it doesn’t seem to be helping my slight sinus headache. The vague unsettled stomach is better, though.
I believe I would have to consider this one a medicinal — not sure I would drink it by itself for enjoyment, but I may try adding it to an uninspiring black tea at some point.
well i went to the store to get their holiday teas and they didnt have any at all :( so i got a box of the 5 different flavors and this is the first im trying.
the color is much darker than i expected which is making me wuss out a bit lol
it reminds me of a candy cane, its good, im glad i tried it! now i want to try this loose leaf to see if its better (prob is lol)
i dont normally drink herbal teas but everyones reviews of minty teas has got me in a mint mood! i think this would be delicious if i added hot chocolate to it :) i wont because im already relaxed on the couch :p
Perhaps I’m doing something wrong here. This is the second time I’ve tried this particular flavor. The first, I allowed the bag to steep for 4 1/2 minutes as directed (I felt 6 min was a bit too long) and it was quite bitter with only the slightest hint of mint. Tasted more like a cough drop than anything else. 2nd time around, just a few moments ago, I steeped for 2 minutes and, sadly, had the same result. Won’t be trying this one again anytime soon.
I love a good strong peppermint flavor. This really works for that. The longer it steeps, the more menthol-y it gets. good stuff. I think Twinnings does a strong peppermint, but this one is nearly as good and less costly. I’m all for it. I wish I had some right now…
