Commercial Description

Dried peppermint leaves to make a minty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. A native of the Mediterranean, peppermint leaves were often used to crown luminaries in ancient Greece and Rome. It continues to be revered for its refreshingly light aroma, as well as its natural, caffeine-free taste. If you have yet to try gourmet peppermint tea, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its superior flavor.

I really enjoy the strong peppermint smell of this tea! It tastes decent but it's a bit too bitter for my taste unfortunately. People who are less sensitive to bitter tastes may find it just fine though! One thing I do really like though is the cooling sensation the mint gives me in my throat. This may be a good tea to drink for a sore throat or cold! It is a bit more on the expensive side (50 cents per cup), but nothing crazy. Overall this is a good quality peppermint tea, I just don't really like peppermint teas very much in general.

This was among the highest-quality of the commercial pure peppermint herbal teas that I've sampled, from a tea company. Quality-wise, it is about on par with Two Leaves and a Bud's, but the price point is markedly lower. It still pales in comparison with the stuff I've grown in my own garden.

Aroma is strongly pepperminty, fresh, and also with some depth and complexity: leafy and herbaceous tones emerge too, and a hint of creaminess. Flavor is relatively smooth. This particular offering was less astringent than most, which is great, but it was also a little on the sour side. There's no much bitterness.

I thought this was a very good sample of peppermint. It was also a bit stronger than usual--I found I was able to brew a stronger cup relative to the amount of leaf.

Still, I think it is a bit silly to buy peppermint at all, if you live in a part of the world (most of the U.S. and most of Europe) where the plant grows well.
