Picture of Classic Mint (Egyptian Mint Herb Tea)

Classic Mint (Egyptian Mint Herb Tea) from Novus Tea

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: Egypt

50 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 2nd, 2017

I agree 100% with Alex. I had this at a restaurant - and it is a mid-to-strong peppermint without being too strong/sharp. Not a candy-cane tea - might even have spearmint in there too? Can't tell.

Nope. Just checked the Bigelow website - it's 100% peppermint, which, indded, you can grow yourself. Cheaply.

Citrus Mint from Tea Forte

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

Aug. 12th, 2016

I am not a fan of mint teas - but the citrus/orange-y notes in Tea Forte's cute little sachet made this one palatable. I recommend steeping longer than 3-4 minutes and then chilling and service over ice. I did not care for it hot. As with all Tea Forte - you are paying for packaging and they make great gifts.

Ah, Starbucks - you and your mergers & acquisitions. This is the new Passion tea (super fruity and a pretty color)they use in their ice tea and tea/lemonade beverages now. I prefer the green - but this is kid friendly - my 11 year old like it - and a nod to the Teavana purchase. Overpriced if you buy it but the cup ...

I hate Peppermint tea - but this one seems to be a very nice,. smooth one. Smells pure and minty - cool and fresh. All organic. Simple. Good for after dinner. Might be good over ice as well.

Had this at a restaurant - not bad but not my fave. A bright cranberry top note and a hint of apples underneath. OK. Caffeine free. Inexpensive and easy to find. Smells better than it tastes. (Potpourri ish).

Nov. 23rd, 2015

Firstly, let me preface this by saying that I HATE Roiboos. But for a roiboos-based blend this one is tolerable (so most people I bet will like it). Smells very sweet - and has a vanilla taste to it that makes it palatable.

I had this at an event and would never purchase a box. Blargh!

Sep. 1st, 2015

I am not a fan of the Zingers in general - but raspberry is better than red or Lemon. They all smell great - but they just don;t taste all that wonderful to me.

Very sour/tart raspberry flavor with an herbal/green note.

Ruby Mist Herbal Iced Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 2nd, 2015

First off, this is a tisane - there is no tea in this blend. It is also caffeine free and very fruity with a fair shot of peppermint. Definitely well suited for iced tea. Sweetener optional. Not a big fan (as i tend to avoid mint) but a good and inexpensive choice from Stash. Worth a try.

Dec. 10th, 2014

People just love this one - but for some reason, I don't. Too floral and ascerbic and weirdly tart for me. But my 9 year old digs it iced - and Starbucks serves it in vast quantities.

I like Tazo's Green and the old-formula "Om" a bit better.

Amazed how good this cheap ($2.99 for a box of 24 bags) bagged grocery-store tea is. Not nearly as good as the Republic of Tea's version - but much less money and perfect for what I needed it for (A local PTA meeting). Stash teabags are perfect when you need to provide tea bags for a crowd and offer a decent quality ...

I loathe orange & spice teas - so i may not be the best person to review this and I am shocked that I even had more than a few sips of this. Blarg! Smells great - but the taste is like drinking perfume. Not for me.

Not as good as the pineapple one (my 9 year old's fave) or the blackberry one - but if you like peach (I sometimes don't if it tastes synthetic) this is a good, fruity choice. Excellent iced with or without sweetener. This is a tisane (herbal blend) there is NO tea in it.

Update: Now that Starbucks owns Teavana -...

Dec. 3rd, 2013

I am not a huge fan of Celestial Seasonings - that said back in the '70's they were some of the first herbal tisanes I ever tried - even as a child.

I enjoy the smell of Country Peach Passion better than the taste. Sweet and fruity with a distinct (somewhat fake-y) peach note to it.

This might be one of my faves...

Jun. 26th, 2013

I, generally don't like Rooibos - but Teavana crams so much fruit flavor in (and aroma) that it's hard to resist these (especially free samples) over ice in summer. While I like the Pineapple pop better, this one is good, too and the new Blueberry/Pineapple blend is also worth a try if you like herbal tisanes. Oh - a...

Smelled awesome and tasted good over ice - and I hate Roiboos - but this is blended like an herbal tisane. Fruity and herby.

This is a blend of Pineapple Pop and Blueberry Bliss so there is a WHOLE lot going on here.

First of all, the package design and possibly the name of this tea may have changed, but I was at a conference in a Sheraton Hotel that offered a few tea selections and since there were no green teas left I chose this.
