Culinary Teas : Peppermint Tea Review
Wow...If You Love Peppermint...Here's
a Tea For You!
Summary : Where to begin? How about wow! How about
superb! That about sums it up when describing this top-notch peppermint
The aroma of this tea is strong, nearly overpowering. And the taste,
well, shall we say peppermint?
Review : A week earlier I sampled the Organic
Peppermint Tea from
And I was extremely impressed, calling it my favorite peppermint tea
up to that point in time. As such, I was curious to see what the non-organic
version of their peppermint tea would taste like.
Because I suspected that the leaves for both these teas basically were
the same, with the only difference with one being organic (and a bit
more expensive) and the other one not being organic, I'll confess, I
had REAL high hopes for this peppermint tea.
And my hopes, thankfully, were not dashed on the rocks of despair. This
tea was absolutely fantastic, being in every single way comparable to
the Organic Version.
Like the organic version, this peppermint tea from
Culinary Teas contains exactly one ingredient : peppermint leaves. And these are GOOD
leaves too. They have a nearly overwhelming aroma to them. The aroma
is so strong, in fact, that the fragrance can be smelled before the
vacumn sealed bag is fully opened!
And so armed with the happy fragrance of peppermint everywhere in my
kitchen, I went ahead and brewed a cup. I let the tea brew for the full
7 minutes as I much prefer a strong peppermint tea over a weak one. After
all...if I want a weak one, I can always buy a cheap grocery store peppermint
So, the next obvious question is, what did this tea taste like. Do I
dare say...ok...I will. It tasted like peppermint, of course! Really,
really good peppermint. No bitterness. No harshness. And a nearly overpowering
taste of peppermint. Truthfully, a peppermint life-saver holds nothing
over this tea...the taste of peppermint in this tea is that strong.
The next obvious question, then, is how did this tea stack up against
the Organic Peppermint
Tea version that
Culinary Teas has? That question is a bit harder to answer. But truthfully, I detected
basically no discernible difference in either taste or fragrance. As
such, if you are deciding in-between which of these two peppermint teas
to get, base it on your budget (organic is somewhat more expensive) and
health reasons (organic is always good for your health).
Recommendation : Absolutely. This is one of the best,
if not the best, peppermint tea I've tried. In fact, the only peppermint
tea that stacks up to this one is the organic peppermint tea version
that Culinary Teas has. To sum it up...if you love peppermint...GET THIS
