Really digging the peppermint lately between a gnarly cold, carb-heavy catered lunches at work since Thanksgiving and nostalgia for the cold and snowy winters we don’t experience in this region of California. Today was the first day at this job that my tea thermos contained a caffeine-free brew. Dudes, today was awesome with a thermos full of hot peppermint juice. This tisane held up for 6 hours without developing any muted or off flavors. Crisp, mentholated, herbaceous soothing peppermint.
My nighttime cups which I’ve been brewing at boiling and letting steep for much longer than the recommended 4 to 6 minutes have turned up only a light stewed herb quality.
Celestial Seasonings Peppermint has the menthol power of two leaves and a bud’s peppermint, the pure peppermint flavor of Traditional Medicinals’ and the herbaceous, stewy quality of bulk bin leaf. This one isn’t particularly sweet to me but it’s been a damn fine cup.
Flavors: Herbaceous, Menthol, Peppermint
