Commercial Description

From over 30 spices of mint, the two most popular and widely available are peppermint and spearmint. Peppermint is mostly used for cooking, while spearmint, fresh or dried, has long been appreciated for its digestive properties. It is commonly used to prepare a herbal infusion that has a delightful taste and aroma both hot and cold.

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 the shelf, despite its modest price point. Good thing, for once, that I did not deeply scrutinize the ingredients label!

Regardless of my anti-spearmint bias, I enjoyed this tea. Dare say it's the best I've had that contained any spearmint at all. The best word to describe it is, "friendly". While not as delicious as the most potent peppermint teas, it has a robust, sweet, somewhat creamy flavor and goes down smoothly and seamlessly -- a hot drink by which to relax on my hotel balcony, on an unusually cool night, overlooking a tranquil South Florida waterway.

It's not totally clear from the packaging exactly what this is made of, but the description suggests that it's a blend of peppermint and spearmint, and I think this is probably true after trying it.

Aroma is more peppermint than spearmint, but unlike some mint blends, there is definitely a balance. There is less of the candy-like quality that I find makes me dislike some mint blends. There's also a hint of a creamy, vanilla-like quality, and more of an herbaceous quality.

I still prefer freshly grown stuff, but this is impressive relative to the low cost. I've never had better mint tea from a simple tea bag in this price range.
