Bigelow Peppermint Herbal Tea Review
Your Average Bagged Supermarket Peppermint Tea
Summary : It's not the greatest peppermint tea in existence, but it's not bad either. Basically, just your average peppermint tea that you can pick up at the supermarket.
Review : I love peppermint. Pure and simple. Peppermint + Me = Heaven. Well, ok, maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but not by much.
And so when I found the peppermint tea foil in my Bigelow Herbal Tea Sampler I picked up, I couldn't wait to try it.
The fragrance of the tea right out of the foil wrapper was what it should be - you are greeted with the strong smell of peppermint. If it was anything else, I would have been greatly disappointed!
Bigelow's Peppermint Herbal Tea contains exactly one ingredient, and that is peppermint leaves. Period.
Once brewed, the tea tastes like, wanna guess?
Yep, that right, it tastes like peppermint! With only peppermint leaves in the tea, I would have been shocked to the point of death if it tasted differently.
Yet, while the tea was definitely a peppermint tea, it is far from being the best peppermint tea in the known universe. I found the taste to be a bit on the weak side, even weaker tasting than the similarily bagged and supermarket competitior Stash Peppermint Tea. And Bigelow's Peppermint Tea is far, far weaker in both taste and after-taste when stacked up against the amazingly good Adagio Peppermint Tea, which is a loose-leaf tea.
I was also very disappointed with the after-taste - or lack thereof - with this tea. The after-taste was gone within minutes. By comparison, the after-taste found in Adagio's Peppermint Tea literally lingered forever, something I love.
On the other hand, if you do want a weaker tasting peppermint flavor that doesn't have a lingering after-taste of nearly an hour like Adagio's tea does, then you may like this tea more than myself.
Recommendation : Yes. If you like peppermint, or for that matter other peppermint teas, you'll enjoy this tea. The reason it gets three stars is because while it is good, it's still a far cry from a loose-leaf peppermint tea, in both flavor terms and after-taste terms.
