Pure Peppermint from Twinings

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

48 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 21st, 2019

Once again, I drank a Twinings product, wondering how this brand gained enough of a reputation or loyalty to have lasted so long. The peppermint in these bags wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Lots of stems too! It reminded me a lot of cheap/knock-off store brands or some of the lower-quality food-service pepperm...

Mint Medley® Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Mint Tea – Region: ?????

59 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 24th, 2019

I've been more impressed with most other mint teas I've chugged so far, including a couple of store brands. Still, Mint Medley is mediocre, not bad. Like most live-performance musical medleys, the sum is worse in quality than the individual parts.

The dry-bag and in-cup aromas were hardly there, while the wet bag...

Nov. 5th, 2018

Finally, after three decidedly lame ones in a row, I try a new peppermint tea that rates (barely) above the speed Sammy Hagar can't drive. I hope this upward trend continues with future peppermint teas, as this is an herb I dearly love.

Opening the wrapper released a pleasant puff of peppermint aroma, more than eve...

Peppermint from Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea Co

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

38 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 2nd, 2018

This is my third consecutive "no bueno" on trying a new peppermint tea. It's about time to return to some old standbys, in order to re-familiarize with what peppermint should be!

The dry-leaf photo from their website is a little misleading, in that the sachet contained considerably more stem pieces—some quite l...

Mint Herbal from O Organics

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: United States of America

28 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 20th, 2018

This is the worst peppermint tea I've had, and that's soon after trying my next-lowest rated peppermint, from another store brand. Guess I'm on a roll...around the bowl and down the hole! That's where the rest of this cup is going.

Out of the wrapper, the dry bag had only about 1/4 of its volume, maybe less, occup...

Peppermint from Trader Joe's

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 24th, 2018

Come on, Trader Joe's! What's the deal here? It's fantastically difficult to mess up peppermint and you came closer to doing so than any I've tried yet. The very low price (beaten in my experience only by Wal-Mart's store brand and Carrington, both noticeably higher-quality) is the only thing that saves this rating ...

Misty Mint from Farmer Brothers

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 4th, 2018

The ingredients list only states peppermint, lemongrass and spearmint. So why do I smell and taste a dab of black pepper in this? Personally, I'm not complaining; spicy teas appeal to me. Yet I wonder if this sensation stems from a systematic characteristic of how one of the listed ingredients is grown or processed,...

Peppermint from Great Value

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 25th, 2018

As I've noted with other peppermint-tea reviews, this is one of my very favorite herbs, one that's generally consistent and hard to mess up (though it can happen!). As such, I'll generally give peppermint teas high marks unless they are stale, overly stem-laden, exorbitantly costly, somehow wrongly advertised, or the ...

Peppermint Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: United States of America

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 20th, 2017

For peppermint, it's hard to top CS' version. As noted in some of my other peppermint tea reviews, this is an herb that is difficult to ruin anyway, and I love the flavor, whether stand-alone or mixed with other products (teas, candies, cookies, etc.). Some tea companies do use stems as cheap filler, or unadvertised ...

Moroccan Mint (Formerly Simply Mint) from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Mint Tea – Region: ?????

59 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 9th, 2017

The final bag in the rolling saga that is my Numi variety-pack taste run has been completed. For background, spearmint doesn't turn me on or off, but I much prefer peppermint. The Moroccan mint used here, for what it is (much closer to spearmint), tastes fresh and sweet, in a cup that brews up surprisingly dark for a...

Peppermint Herbal Tea from Carrington Tea

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 21st, 2017

I love peppermint, and this brand doesn't seem to use a detectable level of stems, non-mint material, spearmint, or other needless filler. The aroma and taste accordingly are nearly maxed for the amount of leaves used (which I always wish were more!).

Although the flavor of this tea is standard peppermint -- no ...

Peppermint Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 13th, 2017

It's no big secret that I love peppermint, given that it pops up in my review docket almost as profusely as it does as a weed in cooler parts of the nation. As noted in one of my other reviews of a peppermint tea (Stash), it's hard, but possible, to screw up this herb as a tea.

Bigelow didn't screw this up. Thei...

Simply Mint (Organic) from China Mist

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 12th, 2016

As I mentioned in a review for Badia's mint blend, spearmint is a flavor I tend to avoid, even in blends, as for me it dilutes or detracts from peppermint. That said, this seemed to strike a good balance such that the peppermint still dominates and is the featured ingredient. The spearmint sits in the background, mas...

Mint Tea from Badia

Oct. 20th, 2016

Up front, I'm not a big fan of spearmint, as it too often is used to dominate and dilute the peppermint in such blends. The former makes great gum, but rather lame teas that too often remind of cough medicine. Had I paid closer attention when buying a small pack of this tea in a Miami Publix, I would have left it on ...

Peppermint Herbal Tea from Stash Tea

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...
