Teatulia’s unique, buttery peppermint tea will awaken your senses. Naturally caffeine free, it is crisp and totally satisfying.
OK, when I first received this tea, I thought, “eh… another peppermint leaf.” No big deal, right? WRONG! This has to be the most unique peppermint I’ve yet to taste. I don’t know what makes it different, but it really is.
The background to this is solid and brisk which lead me to re-examine the label to make sure it was 100% peppermint leaf with nothing else added. I thought for sure there must be black tea in this!
In addition to the usual notes that I’d expect from a peppermint tisane – clean minty flavor, refreshing, crisp notes – there is also a buttery taste to it, and a richness that reminds me of the baked flavor you might get from an Assam black tea. When I sip on a peppermint tea that is 100% pure organic peppermint like this is, I expect a strong MINT flavor, of course, and that is there, but there is so much more to it than just mint. And the mint isn’t an overwhelming, mouthwash-y mint. It is clean and fresh-tasting, yes, but surprisingly non-mouthwash-y.
Perhaps the most satisfying peppermint tea experience I’ve had yet!
