Bursting with bright piney juniper berries, a rush of refreshing mint, and a subtle sweet hint of honey, this blend bottles the wild spirit of the untamed forests in the snow-capped Rockies.

Ingredients: Juniper berries, peppermint leaves, spearmint leaves, natural flavor

Steeping Instructions: Bring fresh, filtered water to a boil (212°F). Pour 8 fl oz water over the tea bag in a cup. Let it brew 4 min. Wait patiently for perfection.

Missed the mark. I love gin, but didn’t get much juniper flavor from this. It’s not undrinkable, but something about it was just off. Not much flavor, what flavor there is was “clashy.” Somewhat synthetic feel.
Oddly, I liked throwing a few bags in the bathtub for aroma more than drinking this tea.

If it wasn’t for the TTB I probably would never have tried this. The aroma is bright and refreshing with berry notes and juniper in the background. The delicate taste of juniper mixes well with the soothingness of the honey and the mint comes in last but is almost tasteless unless the after taste. I’m surprised at how tame the mint is in this considering how it usually likes to hustle its way into your mouth in everything else it’s in.

Just not my cup of…well, you know! I like juniper and woodsy flavors in general, but this one is kind of flimsy. The other flavors don’t balance it out properly, and the lingering note is more like like sawdust than the majestic juniper advertised.

Flavors: Sawdust

This is one of my go-to teas when I’m not sure what I want. I like gin too, so this tea is right up my alley. A solid staple tea in my house

So I’m really torn about this one from the TTB. The first time I tried it, I really didn’t like it. Like, I had to force myself to finish it (I was too tired to go pour it out and too thirsty to just not drink anything). The juniper tastes very pine-y, and something about the mint and honey flavoring just combines to make the whole thing feel more like someone made a tea inspired by household cleaner than anything natural. BUT. Then I made it again today and added actual honey to it (basic grocery store honey because I was afraid of wasting good honey). And that made all the difference. The juniper-pine flavor mellowed into something actually pleasant, the mint became soothing, and overall it became at least drinkable and inoffensive. If you really like juniper and/or pine, you’d probably enjoy this tea (but add honey to it!).

A single tea bag received from Michelle! Thank you so much! I really wanted to try this, but getting any US tea here… it is rather a lucky accident to get some, than getting it somewhere commonly. US candy shops don’t carry them.

So I have brewed it about a hour ago, and I have sniffed the bag prior. It was spearmint with some unidentified sweetness and lightly pine.

Brewed it is very similar, quite spearmint-y and sweet. It was similar to Halls cough drops with its lemon-honey flavour. It wasn’t bad actually. In the end of the sip, there was some pine flavour. But it was quite weak and honestly I have hoped for stronger taste of juniper.

Hall’s! Maybe that’s why I like this one! We ate those like candy when I was a kid.

More minty and honey than juniper. At least now you know you’re not missing too much :)

Martin Bednář

That’s true Michelle! But the wraúpper is beautiful in the collection :)

I had pulled an old advent packet of 52Tea’s “Crisp Cranberry Soda” to try it warm (my previous packet I drank cold brew), thinking that might bring out the “cranberry” for me. It didn’t. I found it pretty meh and the green rooibos was rather dominant in flavor (to be fair, it’s old ) but I just decided to throw the rest of the packet into a cold brew bottle for tomorrow and get a different herbal for my second cuppa.

So I grabbed this, one of the four Target-exclusive “Forager” herbal teas. This is the Rocky Mountain blend (my neck of the woods!) I’m a big fan of this one! As it steeps, it has such a lovely pine-fresh aroma from the mix of juniper and mint. The aroma of the honey, too, reaches my nose.

The sip is very pleasant. I’m a huge juniper fan and could do with it being even stronger here, but the way it mixes with that menthol/fresh flavor of the mint, the two meld in a way that creates a very nice pine flavor. There is definitely an underlying sweetness to the tea, but it doesn’t really taste distinctly “honey” to me. It’s lacking that underlying florality I associate with honey. Still, the sweetness and the mix of juniper and mint makes this a very nice evening cuppa for me.

Flavors: Mint, Pine, Sweet

I still haven’t checked our local Target (avoiding it like the plague on weekends), but next visit, if it’s there, this one might just accidentally jump into my cart.

Between weather, being under it, and being overwhelmed at work (love those January 31 tax statement deadlines), I haven’t gotten out much lately…so much so that a stop at Target on the way home was a Big Adventure. I did a little foraging in the tea aisle and snagged a box of Juniper Mint Honey, primarily for office purposes. I’m going to dare my morning teakettle queue to give it a go and keep a little for afternooners…my old schoolroom office is so cold that I’ve been sipping nonstop and some friendly non-caffeinated bagged options are always welcome.

It just dawned on me that I’ve not said anything about the tea itself. It’s just a nice balance of three flavors I’ve never enjoyed at the same time. the juniper adds a nice piney touch to what would be ordinary honey-mint tea, and the reasonably authentic honey flavor (not 100%, but a decent 79%) complements the mint to keep it from being just another minty tea.

This was my nightly cuppa yesterday.

Hmm…I wonder what would happen if you added honey to the honey…

From Michelle.

I’m not too familiar with juniper, but I had some juniper berries in my spice cabinet so I pulled them out to compare. I don’t notice any connection in the aroma or flavor of the tea. Instead, I smell and taste vanilla mint. I really like it actually.

Ooh! Bet it’s good cold.

Sipdown! (30 | 234)

This one seems so intriguing to me, so I was so thankful to get a few bags in a swap! I love pine and juniper, so I’m always happy to try more teas with those notes.

Unfortunately, this is not for me. It’s mostly honey, and the flavoring is fairly artificial-tasting. There’s also a sort of cloying floral note that I assume is part of the honey. I do get a bit of mint, and it’s nice and cooling and refreshing. Juniper? Nah, not really. There’s a weird bitterness in the aftertaste as well.

So mostly it’s artificial floral honey. Womp womp.

Well, that is disappointing. I wish I could find more juniper-forward teas, as well. (Also, I conceptually find honey as a flavoring kind of weird… like… if I want my tea to taste like honey, I can just put honey in it…?)

Shae

Bummer, I pulled this one to drink for my ‘J’ tea this week. And I agree with Mastress Alita – if I want honey, I’ll just add it myself so why?

Cameron B.

That’s true, but to be fair, you could say the same thing about maple flavoring.

Shae

Hmm, good point about the maple. I hadn’t thought about that. I think maybe if there were an authentic honey flavor I would enjoy it, but I haven’t found that yet.

Martin Bednář

If you guys hate it so much, send it my way… I will use the outer wrappings at least! Haha.

Shame it’s so poorly made. It sounds so interesting!
