“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."

I’m not a fan of peppermint tea, but this was part of my sampler pack so I’m working on finishing the bags I have remaining. It’s not a tea I’d purchase again, but I would recommend it to anyone who likes peppermint tea and wants something low-cost and easy to find.
Obviously, it smells and tastes like peppermint. I’m not picking up on any other flavors but the peppermint flavor is not overpowering even though it’s the main aroma/flavor.
As I’m not a fan of this tea, I opted to mix the remaining tea bags with a chocolate tea I’m, also, not a fan of. The combination of the two along with a little sugar and milk has made both teas more pleasant for my palate. If rating the tea as part of a combination (like my chocolate mint combo), I’d rate the tea closer to 40-45.
To be honest I can not really tell much of a difference between different brands of peppermint, most of the variety is likely saying more about the freshness of what the store is carrying. Although with that being said to far Celestial Seasonings has stood out as my favorite as it has a thicker flavor. Although that is likely because their bags are slightly larger than other brands like Twinings. Regardless being the perfect sized teabag for my favorite mug is enough to win me over.
There is a nice spicy sweetness to it, which makes for a nice hot tea of a wintry day. My only critique is that it is too minty for me, which overpowered the other flavours. This tea is sweet enough by itself that it doesn’t need any honey. It is good by itself but makes an especially wonderful steamed milk latte.

I have this tea left from the holidays I’m trying to work thru them. Today is raining and its a little cold so had this tea while studying. Is not bad it has a very strong and peppermint flavor to it i also taste vanilla mind tone. I am loving Celestial seasonings new packaging I’m a sucker for presentation. will definitely try some of their other flavors. Any recommendations?
Once again this is a pure peppermint tea but it just doesn’t taste quite as good or as smooth as the last few pure peppermint teas I drank. The ingredients says “Peppermint” and it almost tastes like it is made with a breath peppermint rather than peppermint leaves.
