Once again, I drank a Twinings product, wondering how this brand gained enough of a reputation or loyalty to have lasted so long. The peppermint in these bags wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Lots of stems too! It reminded me a lot of cheap/knock-off store brands or some of the lower-quality food-service peppermint offerings, except most of those I've had were still a little stronger in aroma and flavor. Even "Great Value" (Wal-Mart's store brand) was quite noticeably stronger and richer in every way.

The dry-bag smell was faint, and seemed to lack the sharp, cool vibrancy of the best dried peppermints I've sniffed in tea bags, as if the essential oils long since had evaporated away. This, despite the bags being individually sealed in plastic that bore a silvery inner reflective coating, and in turn, the box containing them being shrink-wrapped. It wasn't a surprise, therefore, when the drink turned out to be well-colored, but very mild on both flavor and scent. Unusually, so was the post-steeping squeezed bag; it lacked the crisp coolness one gets from sniffing the best peppermint wet bags as well.

I don't recommend this product unless you can obtain it free or very cheap, and want to add just a faint, background peppermint flavor to some other hot beverage, such as hot chocolate or green tea—and even then it may require more than one bag per cup.

This isn't the strongest or brightest peppermint tea, but it is real smooth and it hits the spot. No bitterness is detectable. I like peppermint far more than spearmint, so I was happy to see this in my sister's cupboard when visiting her. I'm currently in the middle of gestational diabetes, so I'm just excited to be able to give water a variety of flavors while adding no carbs (as I don't add sweetener).

I found this to be quite a mild peppermint tea. It was good, but I think I prefer Celestial Seasoning's peppermint tea, as it's stronger.

Less of the strong peppermint aroma than most peppermint teas...very dark in color, unusually so...more of the general leafy/herbaceous aroma. Not at all sour and very little bitterness or sweetness...this is primarily an aromatic tea.

Noticeably more complexity than Lipton's peppermint. Among bagged peppermint teas I prefer this to all that I've sampled, other than Two Leaves and a Bud's peppermint...but this one is much more reasonably priced.

I still think it's a bit silly to buy peppermint tea if you live in the midwest or northeast though, where it's easy to grow an almost infinite supply of this herb...and nothing I have bought has ever approached the quality of what I grow myself.
