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 spearmint (not hard to tell by taste). Others let the product sit on the shelf too long and essential oils start to evaporate. Not this one!

Both aroma and flavor are about as full as can be, which I expected given the lack of fillers apparent in the dry bag. Moreover, since CS uses pouches instead of small fold-over bags, and packs them with plenty of chopped leaves, the quantity is greater than most bagged peppermint teas as well, contributing to a rich brew. [Oddly, tiny leaf pieces are pressed into the sealed edges of the pouches, indicating a fast and somewhat sloppy mechanical bagging process. However, I deduct no points for that, since it's just a curiosity and doesn't affect tea flavor or aroma.] The liquid in cup starts a green-brown color and quickly changes to a remarkably dense brown, such that the bottom of the cup is not visible after just a couple of minutes (especially when stirring bag-in-cup, as I often to do maximize flavor release). A speckly sheen of essential-oil droplets also appears atop the tea; this is a good thing!

Another testament to the quality of this peppermint is the wet-bag aroma after several minutes of steeping, then squeezing the remainder into the cup. This is something I do with most teas once. With great mint teas, I'll do it over and over: fluff up the squeezed but still damp bag, wrap it around the bottom of the nose, and breathe deeply. There's still plenty of rich peppermint smell left over for this, and it's a quite soothing and relaxing endeavor. The value was great too, in this instance, given a price of just $2/box on sale at Sprouts.

When I first thought of peppermint tea, I thought....yuck. But I tried this and was extremely pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

Not too bad, but nothing to rave about. Straightforward peppermint, so if that's what you're craving it certainly works. I would enjoy it if in the mood for non-sweet peppermint, but otherwise it's underwhelming.

I would add that, though I don't know why, the second cup was superior to the first.

strong peppermint smell of course, but also an off smell...like the teabag or something...not a big fan....not other flavor, just straight like a candycane dipped in hot water...

I hate straight peppermint tea. I just can't handle all that menthol - but that said - Celestials' is decent and readily available. Simple, one-note, Peppermint. Not my bag, baby!

Aroma: stale grass clippings.

Flavor: Earth, grass and mint. A little natural sweetness seeps in, but only a touch. Minty finish lingers.

Value: Inexpensive, and only needs one bag for a 16 ounce mug.

Overall: There are some timeless classics, and this is one. It's direct, simple, and a favorite to which I can always return for a predictable relaxing cup. It's even great iced with a touch of sugar; perhaps even refreshing. This one will always grace my cupboard.

I use peppermint tea to naturally help with digestive troubles I get. I really like this peppermint tea from Celestial Seasonings. It is very intense, though, so beware!

I don't find it to be sweet like candy canes, but just pure in peppermint flavor. It does help calm my stomach issues, which is most important to me.

The longer you steep, the stronger this will be. It's best to sip slowly at it (at least for me).

It is the most intensely flavored tea I've had in awhile.

I drink peppermint tea to soothe my stomach. It is pleasant tasting, but I don't think I've ever drank it for pure enjoyment. It provides a strange sensation of mild cooling after you swallow the hot liquid. Even though its herbal, don't brew longer than 3-4 minutes or the peppermint oil releases a bit of bitterness. Warning, do not drink more than one cup at a time, or it'll will cause intestinal discomfort.

The aroma of this tea is pretty amazing. I opened the box and was overwhelmed by the smell of candy canes! I haven't been as impressed by the taste though. It has a little bit more bitterness in it than I would like.
