Hey all. Sorry for the extended absence. My mood has been really down lately, and I haven’t bought new tea in awhile, so there hasn’t been anything new to review.
All that being said, when my parents went on vacation, they brought back four teabags. Two of this, and two chamomile from the same brand. Today, I am trying the peppermint.
Ok, For starters, I brewed this a minute more than it said. I like a good strong herbal, and I thought it might help. However, upon tasting the result, it was hella bitter. So I opted for a single stevia (I’m at the parents house, they don’t have splenda). It made it taste marginally better. It’s certainly minty – which it should be for supposedly containing nothing but peppermint leaf. Yup I can totally tell that is peppermint. It actually, with the stevia, tastes remarkably like one of those red and white peppermint candies that grandma used to horde. I can handle that. I like those.
Overall, I would say this is a decent peppermint tea. Taken straight, it is bitter, but with a touch of sweetener, it has a lovely peppermint candy flavor. Not bad at all.
