Picture of Cool Mint

Cool Mint from Dunkin Donuts

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 21st, 2019

This is a peppermint blend. The peppermint is high quality, isn't weedy tasting, and has a nice menthol finish. There's a floral background flavor that's nice, but I ultimately think that the peppermint is cut with too much filler.

I'd order this again at a Dunkin Donuts if I didn't want something caffeinated, but a...

Steep Rooibos Hibiscus Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: ?????

66 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 16th, 2019

Upon opening the foil pouch, this smells strongly and plainly of rooibos. Adding the water brings a surprisingly strong aroma of orange oil.

The flavors play well together. The orange lends sweetness to the tart hibiscus and rose hips. The nuttiness of the rooibos adds a nice, nutty complexity that isn't often foun...

Nightly Calm (Bedtime Blend) from Twinings

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 8th, 2019

The flavor of Nightly Calm is mostly spearmint with a hint of chamomile. The spearmint is nice and doesn't taste grassy or woody. The chamomile is mostly detectable as a faint richness and I don't taste any of the other ingredients.

Pure spearmint is hard to find as a bagged herbal tea and the brands that sell it ar...

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 2nd, 2019

This is good quality chamomile. After opening the heavy paper and foil pouch, the dry teabag has a much richer aroma than most chamomile that I've had. The contents of the teabag looks ground up and entirely flower parts with no stems or leaves.

It brews up a deep gold with a slight greenish hue. The aroma of the li...

Chamomile from TEViVE

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: ?????

86 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 26th, 2019

This is really good chamomile. Rather than being bitter, it's floral and sweet. The box says that it was packed in Sri Lanka, but doesn't come right out and say where the chamomile is from.

The only problem is the same one that all TEViVE teas have, the teabags have half the contents of other brands. The box of 20 t...

Peppermint from TEViVE

Jun. 5th, 2019

The weird thing about TEViVE teas is that the teabags contain half of the tea or herb or whatever of other brands. The flavored black teas each contain one gram of tea instead of two. The peppermint teabags contain .6 gram while my box of Stash teabags have a full gram. Whenever I make this, I use twice as many teabags...

Jun. 4th, 2019

Good quality, straightforward hibiscus flower tea. Bulk hibiscus flowers are cheap, but quality can be hit or miss. Though many (or even most) blended herbal teas contain hibiscus, few brands offer unblended hibiscus teabags and the ones that do tend to be overpriced.

Hibiscus is tart and fruity, almost like unsweet...

Camomile, Honey & Vanilla from Twinings

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

19 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 2nd, 2019

Dry, the aroma of vanilla is strong and it smells kind of like eggnog. The camomile lends a woody smell so that the overall impression is a bit like perfumed potpourri.

The brewing tea smells of honey surrounded by sweet pastry and the impression is of honeyed biscuits. The flavor is strongly vanilla, so much so tha...

Mar. 25th, 2019

I'm not a fan. It smells nice dry, kind of like a cinnamon roll. Brewed, the grain aroma from the barley takes over. I can see what they're going for and the chicory, carob and spices combine to give the passable impression of a mocha coffee, but there's too much dark bread crust for my taste.

I don't think this rea...

Sweet Dreams Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

53 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 14th, 2019

I've had a few knockoffs of this lately, so I figured I'd review the real thing. Sweet Dreams is basically chamomile tea for people that don't like chamomile. When dry, the dominant aroma is spearmint. After steeping, it's a subdued mintiness with a bit of cinnamon and citrus.

The flavor complements the aroma and se...

Mar. 13th, 2019

Rosehip and hibiscus is my favorite herbal combination, so when I decided to try Ahmad's herbal teas, this was a natural for me.

The dry tea smells like cherry juice and sawdust. Brewed, the cherry is still prominent, but the rosehips and hibiscus add to the aroma. The cherry flavor adds too much sweetness to the fl...

Mar. 11th, 2019

This is ALDI's recreation of Bigelow Sweet Dreams. The balance is a bit different, but the same flavors are there.

The profile is chamomile and mint. The dominant mint is spearmint rather than peppermint and there's a little bit of sourness from the hibiscus. The menthol coolness appears in the finish along with som...

I found a Middle Eastern store that carries a large number of Ahmad's teas and decided to try some of their herbal teas as well. As a brand, Ahmad has shown itself to produce high quality and flavorful products and this tea is no exception. Other than whatever "natural flavor" is included (I'm guessing primarily lemon ...

Feb. 28th, 2019

This blend is really quite bland, especially so for mint. The menthol coolness is there, but it really tastes more herbal than minty. I also taste the "pepper" flavor that the previous reviewer noted, so it wasn't just a fluke or something.

I wouldn't think that there are enough ingredients in this blend to mess up,...

Feb. 26th, 2019

This is Farmer Brothers' version of Bigelow's I Love Lemon. The ingredient list is identical.

When dry, the tea smells mostly like peppermint. When steeping, the aroma of lemon oil comes out and is mainly what the tea smells like. The lemon herbs (lemon grass and lemon verbena) are the main flavors, giving the brew ...

I'm stuck in a hotel for few days for a conference, but the bright side is finding a brand of food service teas that I've never tasted.

I decided to make a cup of Enchanting Moments before bed. It's a spot-on mimic of Bigelow's Sweet Dreams herbal tea. The main flavors are chamomile, peppermint and spearmint.

Jan. 31st, 2019

One of the very few pure spearmint herbal teas available in tea bags.

The tea smells strongly and recognizably of spearmint even before adding water. After steeping, the tea has a pronounced spearmint flavor with just enough herbal notes to avoid tasting like candy.

A second steeping still carries a lot of flavor...

Jan. 10th, 2019

The smell of the dry tea bag is, per the name, cranberry and apple. The flavor of the tea is quite different, though, being predominantly hibiscus and rose hips. After the initial tart rush, the apple comes out. It tastes quite nice, like the apple peel flavor of freeze-dried apple chips. If I try, I can taste a little...

Jan. 10th, 2019

The dry tea smells like lemons and the first ingredient is lemongrass, so I was expecting a much more lemony flavor than I'm getting. The flavor is mostly chamomile with a sort of far-off whiff of lemon peel. I'm curious about the lemongrass because the flavor's normally more pronounced when it's an ingredient. It's al...

Even before steeping, the teabag smells pungently of ginger.

The flavor is intense. Spicy ginger and lemongrass are the initial punch and the finish is lime. Some of the spice might be from the cinnamon, but I don't otherwise taste any of the other ingredients.

Drinking this offers a similar flavor to licking fre...

The peppermint is surprisingly good for the price and has plenty of flavor and menthol. There's just enough of an herbal, grassy flavor so it doesn't taste like a candy cane.

For drinkers of grocery store peppermint tea bags, Benner is as good as Bigelow or Celestial Seasonings, but significantly less expensive, $1....

Both the dry and brewed tea smell almost like Wrigley's Doublemint gum with the balance a little more toward peppermint.

The taste is not what I was expecting. The tea is definitely minty, but as the ingredients include rose hips, lemon peel and hibiscus, I was expecting some fruitiness. Of the extra ingredients, I ...

The tea's aroma is an almost equal balance of spearmint ("Nana Mint") and ginger. The mint is of good quality, with no stems apparent and no off flavors that are sometimes apparent in cheaper mint teas. Unfortunately, Wissotzky seems to have decided that all of their herbal teas, including this one, need to be sweetene...

This fruit tea smells just like crushed blueberries. Sipping the tea emphasizes the tartness and astringency of the hibiscus and rosehips that seem to be in all fruit tea these days. The finish tastes like canned blueberry pie filling.

The flavoring in this is too heavy. I think I'd just prefer the hibiscus and rose...
