Stash White Christmas White Tea Review
An Enjoyable and Non-Bitter Peppermint White Tea
Summary : A very pleasant and strong tasting peppermint flavored white tea. If you enjoy peppermint, or are looking for something different in your white tea, the Christmas Eve tea from Stash is well worth trying.
Review : But for the pretty box Stash's White Christmas White Tea comes in, I never would have noticed this tea. While walking by the tea aisle in my local Savemart, I noticed this beautiful box on the shelf. The problem was that the title words weren't in English. Whoever had stocked the tea had put the boxes on the shelf backwards, so the English words were facing away from the aisle while the Spanish words faced all the shoppers - none of whom likely spoke a word of Spanish.
Yet in the end the pretty box made me stop and pick it up. And once I discovered the English words on the back, I looked over the ingredient list and was impressed - Peppermint, Ginger and White Tea. I like White Tea and adore Peppermint Tea, so my hopes for this tea - despite coming from a bag and made by Stash Teas - immediately skyrocketed. So I tossed this tea in my shopping basket and came home, eager to give this tea a try.
Here's how Stash describes their White Christmas White Tea : "Dream of a white Christmas with every sip of tea you drink. This blend of rare white tea, cool peppermint, and a hint of ginger will make you want to sing and dance your way through the holidays! May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmas teas be white. 100% Natural ingredients. Created especially for the holidays, each ingredients of this unique blend enhances the other. Rare white tea, cool peppermint, and a hint of ginger come together to create an uplifting and enticing cup. White tea is rich in antioxidants and delicate in taste. Oregon's world-renowned peppermint imparts a refreshing flavor note while ginger adds warmth and spice. A touch of honey or sugar enlivens the blend and brings out the distinct flavors. Savor this delightful tea any time of day."
The Christmas Eve herbal tea from Stash contains the following ingredients : White Tea, Peppermint and Ginger Root.
For a bagged tea, especially from Stash Teas, the aroma of the tea is surprisingly strong. The peppermint fragrance really jumps out and soon filled my kitchen with the wonderful peppermint aroma.
Once brewed, the tea looks exactly like every other peppermint tea I've had before.
And you know what? The flavor of this tea precisely matched the teas fragrance and color. For all intents and purposes, this is a peppermint tea once brewed. Nowhere in the tea could I discern any traditional white tea flavor nor could I taste any sort of ginger, either.
In short, Stash's White Christmas tea is a peppermint tea - plain and simple. However, since it is infused with White Tea, anyone drinking this tea also gets the antioxidant benefits found in White Tea - something that is normally lacking in traditional peppermint herbal teas.
Overall, if you are searching for a traditional white tea flavor with a "hint of peppermint," then you will not enjoy this tea since the peppermint flavor completely overwhelms everything else in this tea. However, if you love peppermint herbal teas, I absolutely guarantee that you'll enjoy this tea.
Recommendation : Yes. This is an excellent peppermint flavored white tea. Just beware that the flavor of the peppermint is very strong in this tea and overwhelms the traditional white tea flavor. If you love peppermint herbal teas, you'll definitely enjoy this tea. That said, if you are searching for that traditional white tea flavor with just a "hint of mint", then you probably will find this tea far too strong.
