Peppermint Herbal Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: United States of America

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 9th, 2016

Peppermint teas, if done right, should look, smell and taste identical regardless of the brand name. This is because the ingredient is singular and straightforward: chopped, dried peppermint leaves: M. balsamea Willd. That's it.

Differences in strength, freshness and flavor, therefore, are related not to the c...

Dec. 20th, 2015

Served in the Barnes & Noble Cafe in Newark, DE.

I am more partial to spearmint than peppermint, but I do enjoy peppermint from time to time. I picked this one mainly because it was one of the only two caffeine-free herbal options in the cafe, and I had already tried the other one.

This is a very good peppermint ...

Nothing remarkable with this tea. Nice color, no noticeable highlights in the taste. I would say a good all day sipping tea.

Feb. 8th, 2015

Fantastic tea! I'm also incredibly excited that it's grown in the United States.

For a black tea, I was surprised that the taste reminded me of my favorite oolongs; there was a lot of vegetable flavor happening in my cup.

Jan. 25th, 2015

On my scale from 1 (Lipton) to 10 (totally transcendent), this tea is about an 8. Very good: full-bodied and not too sour, acidic or tannic - but not my favorite black tea. It would probably make a really excellent iced tea with lemon.

Jan. 24th, 2015

I was surprised at how different this tasted from the Charleston Breakfast blend. I like this one better, and ironically, I think it tastes more like a strong English breakfast tea, whereas the other blend tastes more like a plain, medium-bodied black tea.

The tea bag itself, which is a pyramid sachet filled with l...

Nov. 9th, 2014

I tried this tea because the positive ratings by others. It really is a great tea.

The aroma took me by surprise at first. It's hard to describe...Sort of like peppermint. You might expect the tea to taste really sharp judging by the scent. The exact opposite is true. It tastes very smooth and clean. It has a refres...

Nov. 6th, 2014

This is a hibiscus-based herbal blend. I tried it because I like hibiscus teas, but I wanted something more well-rounded and which cut down on the natural sourness of hibiscus.

The tea has a very nice scent both raw and brewed. You can tell MRH uses high-quality ingredients. The color of the brewed tea is a beautifu...

Sep. 28th, 2014

Oooh, very tasty tulsi! Very smooth, lightly spiced with complexities that taste not-quite-floral, not-quite-citrus. Very soothing aroma too.

It can steep for a long time without turning bitter (which is good, because it diffuses slowly) and has a lovely light gold color. The water I used was fresh boiled. My first ...

Aug. 26th, 2014

Not bad, but not a favorite. It tastes like a decent quality southern-style black tea. No bitterness I can notice. I feel like, for me, it would benefit from a squirt of lemon juice, though I don't have any on hand to try it. I think regular southern tea drinkers would really like this one, but it's not quite dazzling ...

A light-bodied, smooth-flavored tea which was pleasant to drink.

Thank you to Nikki and Korbett for bringing this one to me from Charleston! I expected this to be more of a novelty, but it was surprisingly good quality!

Dry leaf is coarse and looks mechanically processed, but with bigger, more intact leaf pieces ...

Feb. 7th, 2014

A truly artisanal example of this herb. Tastes the closest to the fresh-harvested, home-grown example of this herb than any other one I have bought through a company. Astonishing complexity for Rama Tulsi.

I tried this some time ago, and I think it may not have been terribly fresh; this was a fresh batch which a f...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 1st, 2013

I love the smell of the dry leaf of this stuff...it has a potent and very pleasant aroma, similar to Yerba mate and Guayusa but unique. I find it much more pleasing!

Upon brewing, I don't like the taste quite as much. It tastes peppery, and the yerba-mate-like sweetness is more of a background flavor. The aroma i...

Aug. 30th, 2013

Wow, the first tea I ever sampled that was grown on U.S. soil! This was quite remarkable, as a curiosity. As a tea though, it was less interesting...it still seems that the main appeal of this tea is its novelty value.

Dark-colored leaf turns lighter upon brewing, and brews a rich, golden-colored up. Mellow and s...

I finally got to try Yaupon, and this was the first one I tried! I was excited! I liked it, and I thought this batch was on par with some of the better examples of mate, and the only batch of guayusa that I've tried (the closest thing I have to compare it to).

Aroma of the dry leaf and brewed cup is vaguely remini...

May. 25th, 2013

I'm used to drinking iced herbal tea brewed from fresh lemon balm, or from my own dried batches of the herb, which I dry in whole-leaf form. This herb was pretty finely broken, and had a pretty different flavor and aroma.

The aroma is only very mildly lemony, much less so than my own batches of the herb, but it's v...

I have been drinking this tea for the last 6 months. It has become my favorite caffeinated beverage. Now that it is summer in Texas, I have been drinking Texas Yaupon Tea iced, too.

This is pretty good peppermint tea. It's tasty, and it's fairly cheap. If you like peppermint tea, it's a good buy, but it's not anything I consider particularly exciting.

This Tea at a start has a brilliant aroma, But after smelling it for a few seconds you can smell that bitter taste of this disappointing tea. This tea is not what I expected, Especially after the aroma at the start. This was not what I expected from Twinings at all! When you taste it you taste this bitter tea that inst...

Wow. And I thought I'd tried lemon verbena before. This is the first herbal tea that I've given a perfect rating, and only my second perfect rating.

This whole-leaf lemon verbena from the ANC Farm is better than anything I've tried fresh or dried. This is to lemon verbena what a high grade Jade Oolong or Tie Guan...

I received this teabag from a trade with a friend. I wasn't expecting that much, and honestly, it didn't deliver that much.

The one thing that this tea has going for it is that the flavoring is not overdone: it's subtle, particularly the orange--I almost notice the passionfruit flavoring a bit more.

Dec. 8th, 2010

The liqueur is an amber color with hints of green. It smells sweet and sort of spiced, like there is something extra inside. The brew is made from chopped up licorice root, and there are no other spices, so I assume the spiced taste comes from the root itself.

This is a really tasty herbal tea. It is caffeine free,...

Up to this point, I've only ever had three kinds of mint tea: fresh mint tea from a Moroccan restaurant (delicious), Mighty Leaf's Mint Melange (not a fan), and this one. This tea is absolutely amazing, and I've been drinking it almost every day since I discovered it. It has a wonderful, chilling mintyness which give...
