Amazon Customer Review : This book not only gives a description of the different types of teas, it tells how they are processed from the same plant to make the different teas and the history of tea from China to India, to Japan, to Europe, to America. There is a whole section on terminology used for herbal teas, how to grow, cultivate, harvest, dry and store them.

Celestial Seasonings Peppermint Tea Review

Your average supermarket brand peppermint tea

Summary : A somewhat disappointing peppermint tea. It tasted ok. But not nearly as good as other peppermint teas I've tried.

Review : I adore peppermint. If something has peppermint in its name, it is a pretty good bet that sooner or later I'll try it. And....best of all...usually like it.

And so with peppermint fever dancing around in my head, I decided to give Celestial Seasonings Peppermint Herbal Tea a try.

At first, I had high hopes for this tea, due to the pretty strong smell of the peppermint once the tea was taken out of the foil package. While not as strong as some loose-leaf peppermint teas I've tried, the aroma from this tea was still pretty strong.

As such, I was rather expecting to be greeted by a rather strong peppermint taste once the tea was brewed.

Well, the tea tastes like peppermint. The problem is, the taste is rather weak - at least in comparison to other peppermint teas I've tried, such as Adagio Teas Peppermint Tea. The taste was even weaker than other supermarket brand peppermint teas, such as Stash Peppermint Tea.

And truthfully, this was surprising. After all, a peppermint tea contains the following ingredients : Peppermint leaves. That's it. Nothing else.

All said and done, only thing I can think of why this tea is relatively weak is because Celestial Seasonings used some poor quality leaves for this tea. And before you say it, I brewed the tea for the maximum length of time that was recommended - 6 minutes. So it wasn't poor brewing that led to a just so-so average taste.

Now, I'm not saying that this peppermint tea from Celestial Seasonings is bad. No...all I'm saying is that if you want a strong peppermint tea, there are better teas in the world. Additionally, unlike other peppermint teas I've tried, I found the after-taste in Celestial Seasonings Peppermint tea to be rather weak and very short-lived.

Of course, if you don't want a strong peppermint tea, then maybe this tea is indeed for you.

Recommendation : For a strong peppermint tea, try Adagio Peppermint Tea or, if you want a bagged version, try Stash's Peppermint Tea. However, if you like your peppermint teas a bit on the weaker side, you'll probably like this tea.
