From Kiani Tea

An intense and refreshing peppermint infusion from Vienna, Austria

Chosen for their quality and organic growing methods, the peppermint leaves are slow-dried to retain their essential oils, creating an invigorating flavour with a lasting cool finish,

Favoured for its high menthol content, peppermint has been used for thousands of years for its pleasant mint taste and countless health benefits.

Peppermint leaves contain several natural essential oils including menthol, menthone and limonene.

Menthol gives peppermint its cooling properties and recognizably minty scent.

Tasting Notes: Intensely fresh and minty, pure menthol flavour, soothing and cleansing with a cool finish.

Adventaggedon Day 8: Tea 1/7

This is what I started my morning with today. It seemed like it would make for a nice soothing and gentle start to my day, while having enough of a cooling punch to not be too soothing since it was a work day. I was right, as well!

I made it in a ‘tea for one’ style teapot with all these cute whimsical Christmas stocking motifs on it, and I felt festive while drinking it – which was also nice. I was pleasantly surprised by how clean tasting and menthol forward/crisp this mint was. Typically European grown peppermint does tend to have a bit more of a “muddied” earthy kind of taste to it and doesn’t have the same clarity and intensity that North American mint has. I would imagine that, since Kiani is based in Europe, they’re probably using European mint? If that’s the case, this is even more impressive!

Apparently it’s from Austria.

So, European then ;) Still interesting though – Austria isn’t particularly known for their peppermint production/export compared to other places in Europe.

Martin Bednář

Maybe they have used their Alpine climate for a good tasting mint?

Kiani Tea Advent Calendar 2021 – Day 8

Enjoyed this one as an afternoon break from a long day full of work meetings.

I don’t consider myself a peppermint fan specifically, but these full-leaf versions are always so different from any other type. So light and airy, crisp and refreshing. There’s a lovely natural sweetness. And none of that musty wet rag sort of herbaceous flavor I often find in mint. I love the soft cooling sensation left over from the sip, and the chill when I inhale.

I’m planning on getting some peppermint for my cupboard (probably from Harts of America), but I’m trying to sip down some of my existing herbal tisanes first. The struggle is real!
