Lipton Peppermint Herbal Tea Review

An average bagged peppermint tea

Summary : This tea is nothing special, but nothing terrible either. In the end, its just your average bagged peppermint tea, with a bit weaker taste than the similar Stash Peppermint Tea.

Review : I love peppermint. If the name of something has peppermint in it, most likely, I'll love it. And if the name says peppermint, I'll most definitely try it - regardless of what "it" may be.

And so when I stumbled across some Lipton Peppermint Herbal Tea, there was no doubt that the box would find its way into my shopping cart at the local grocery store.

The aroma of this tea, fresh out of the foil package it comes packaged in, provides a moderately strong but not overpowering peppermint smell. It's not nearly as strong as what is found with loose-leaf peppermint tea, nor even as strong as some bagged versions like Stash - but is still quite noticeable.

Like all other peppermint tea, Lipton's version is very simple. It contains peppermint leaves - and nothing else. But sadly, as with other peppermint bagged teas, the leaves are REAL small, leaving little doubt that you are essentially getting the "left overs".

That you get the "left over" peppermint leaves is evident by the taste. While the tea definitely tastes like a peppermint tea, the taste is not nearly as strong nor as flavorful as what can be found in a higher quality loose-leaf peppermint tea, such as Adagio's Peppermint Tea. And rather surprisingly, I found the flavor to be weaker than even the bagged Stash Peppermint Tea.

Still, while the flavor of this tea is weaker than other peppermint teas on the market, it isn't THAT weak. When drinking this tea, there is no doubt that this is indeed a peppermint tea. And if you've never tried a real good peppermint tea before, anyone who likes mint will definitely like this particular tea from Lipton.

The problem, of course, is that once you've tried a REAL good peppermint tea - the flavor of Lipton's Peppermint Tea just fails to stack up. Instead of being a "good tea", it just becomes your average supermarket tea.

Recommendation : If you've never tried loose-leaf peppermint tea before, and if you like a minty tea, you'll like this tea as it is indeed a "peppermint tea". But if you already like higher quality peppermint teas, forget about trying this one, as the taste will be disappointing. This tea also has a decent after-taste, too.
