If you want a taste of the Kentucky Derby,the best place to start is a mint julep. So ice yourself a cup of this little number and hang on to your hat. With black tea, spearmint and lemon peel, it’s smooth and refreshing right out of the gate. Add a creamy touch of pineapple and coconut, and you’ve got a cool summer drink that’s best in class. Try it with a sprig of fresh mint, a splash of bourbon and lots of cracked ice. Trust us – it’s a winner.

Black tea, rooibos, spearmint, pineapple, coconut, lemon peel, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Contains coconut

Iced: For some reason this tea has a definite chocolate flavour for me iced, which is strange given the lack of chocolate… Maybe the coconut? Mint is definitely stronger in the iced version, nice and refreshing, but the mint tastes somewhat artificial here.

Hot: Smell is a deep fruit mint, remarkably smooth taste with flavours that complement each other very well, and none that stand out. Cloying coconut-mint aftertaste is delightful. The hint of pineapple is a nice refreshing touch for summer and I love the black/ rooibos blend! 2nd steep still flavourful, but individual flavours, especially the mint, stand out more.

I am not a fan of rooibos, or mint, especially mixed with citrus, that is why the low rating. Not because this is a bad tea, I can see how people would like it if they like those flavours, but I don’t.

A creamy black tea with a minty kick. I think the creaminess might have been the coconut. It tasted best super cold – the spearmint really came through then. I found it a bit mild, but maybe that’s what you want in a refreshing summer tea.

I brewed this up as ice tea and it is pretty good. I don’t really enjoy the taste of spearmint, so that was a mark against it in my book. However, the favors are really well balanced and it is quite refreshing. If you like mint, you’ll love this tea. If you aren’t that crazy about mint, I bet you’ll still like it, but don’t go out of your way to get your hands on some.

I really enjoyed Mint Julep.

It has a nice light aroma of spearmint, not too overpowering, something like mint candies. I didn’t taste a lot of the citrusy/pineapple notes, but they support the spearmint aroma very nicely. Be aware not to steep for too long as the mix of black tea and rooibos can take over this really great recipe.

Can’t wait to try this one on plenty of ice and fresh leaves of mint.

I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. The concept is great – a black tea with mint and coconut notes. I tried it both hot and cold (and this one I certainly prefer cold). Hot, to me, this tea tastes overwhelmingly like rooibos, which I am not a fan of for the most part. However, the other pick me ups in the tea almost make up for this and I find the rooibos isn’t nearly as present when it’s made iced with a bit of milk.

I’m in love with this tea. Thank goodness I got a sample in my recent shipment because I wouldn’t have tried it out otherwise. This tea is subtly minty with delicious fruit flavors, I particularly noticed the lemon. Yummmmm.

I brewed it twice today. The first time I boiled the water to 208 degrees F and then steeped it for 5 minutes. I then added a little sugar and poured it over ice for a refreshing tea on this hot day. The second time I boiled the water, resteeped for 6 minutes, and poured it over ice again. This time I didn’t sweeten this much but it was still delicious. It did seem to be a bit weaker in flavor after the second steeping, but that could also be influenced by the fact that I had just finished eating some sweet strawberries.

This tea snuck up on me! It’s a bit mellow, so it kind of got lost behind the HI WE ARE DELICIOUS FRUITSPLOSIONS PUT US IN YOUR MOUTH summer tea shuffle. The dry leaf has a rich mint smell – the mint itself is actually quite light and the pineapple chunks and coconut give bright and buttery back notes. Yum.

It brews dark. I find you have to focus on this tea while you’re drinking it – this is not something to pair with a spicy meal or a sugary dessert or anything else that will overwhelm your tastebuds. It will make the tea seem bland, but if you’re paying attention (because it is needy, co-dependent tea), it’s a treat. The spearmint is muted but cooling and refreshing, but the rest of the tea feels substantial. Good hot or iced, but I’d brew then chill it – don’t serve it over ice. I can see this tea getting really diluted.

Overall, it’s a more indulgent spin on peppermint tea. It’s not the most amazing thing I’ve ever tasted, but if you’re curious about it, you should try it. If the coconut scares you off, don’t let it – you can barely taste it. DON’T buy the iced tea pack version of this tea – it’s way more expensive that way. The other ones are all a deal, but this one is much cheaper to buy by weight.
