Would buy again in small quantities only. 1tsp of sugar/8oz. Tastes nice but leaves a metallic and unpleasant mouthfeel, but still worth drinking.

The particular bag of this I brewed from spent a not-insignificant amount of time in a hardhat. While that probably didn’t add to the flavor, it sure did add to the feeling. The bag resisted opening like some loving god was doing its best to help me. I fought it, exercising my right to screw up royally, and won. My prize was the definite odor of dentist toothpaste, so strong and true I felt the grit in my mouth and winced. The steam smelled better; had the heat burnt off the dentist toothpaste? I detected a hint of creamy vanilla in the steam, but was hesitant to believe it.
In the end, it left me confused. The leaf smelled horrible and brewed a particularly unappealing hue of yellow. And yet, it only tasted of mint and a non-descript fattiness that I suppose is meant to be vanilla. It reminds me of when you eat an avocado, that smooth not-quite-buttery flavor left in your mouth after you swallow. Butter’s isomer? Unpinpointable. Slightly plasticy, but I wouldn’t notice if I weren’t drinking out of porcelain. Buttermint hurtles towards you like a runaway train and dissolves into mist. It’s kind of nice- after the first few seconds of preparation.

When I think of mint tea with a spike of vanilla, I really don’t want to think of it as “musky”, but that’s what Twinings Buttermint has brought me to. The “Natural Flavour Vanilla Type” was ominous, and after drinking it, I’m convinced that the vanilla type flavor here was modeled after a glandy beaver. It’s a mediocre peppermint tea with an odd, waxy, musky artificial vanilla kick to it. However, that hasn’t stopped me from buying and drinking two boxes of it, because I always forget just how bizarre it is.

I love a good vanilla mint blend, so I had to revisit this one before completing my challenge. I tried it in its previous incarnation, when it was one of the Sensations range – that was a long time ago! I kept seeing it in the supermarket, and it was calling to me, so I gave in and bought a box for old time’s sake.

It’s simple, but delicious! There’s lots of peppermint, as you might expect, and it’s cooling and refreshing in the way only peppermint can be, considering it’s actually hot. The vanilla adds a creamy sweetness, very reminiscent of toffee at times. The flavour is spot-on murray mint, which I think is the intention.

I’d say this is easily one of my favourite herbal/caffeine-free blends. I’d forgotten how much I liked this one, but I think in future I’m going to try and keep it around. It’s well balanced perfection. Considering it’s a bagged supermarket tea, it would be hard to give it higher praise!

I’ll have to give this one a try! I’m pleased to see it’s actually available in the US.


I just gave this one to my daughter! I liked it, but she is the real mint lover.

never heard about this blend, and quite curious about the combination of mint + vanilla…I´ll check it out in UK.

I love love love this herbal. Perfect balance of mint and vanilla and needs no sweetener. Just a very pleasant cup. Recommended.

The concept was interesting but the taste was not as complimentary as one would hope. I had wondered why it was called buttermint but it tastes strange, as if there was butter in the tea. Hard pass.

This one caught my attention immediately in the grocery store last night. Vanilla-flavored mint? Sign me up!

It radiates a weird, rubbery smell while brewing, kind of like the way new Converse shoes smell, with a dash of minty toothpaste thrown in.

I tried not to let that initial smell turn me off, though, and I was glad for it— The experience of drinking this tea is amazing! The vanilla gives it a thick, creamy mouthfeel, like melted frozen yogurt. I get notes of custard, vanilla pudding, sweet mint, and it finishes with a slight cooling sensation on the palate, characteristic of peppermint.

You can’t really oversteep it, either, because it’s so mild. 7/10, would recommend to anyone who doesn’t let the initial smell of a tea deter them!
