Hmm… I like these. I wasn’t really sure about them at first … I’ve tried tea mints, some I’ve liked, and some … not so much. But these are quite nice. Not too sweet, and I like that even though they’ve only 1 calorie, they’ve not been sweetened using aspartame – to which I’m allergic. I also like that they’re only 1 calorie because they’re quite tasty and I found myself wanting another after the first… and another after that.
The flavor is intense. The ginger is the strongest note, and the pear comes through nicely. I don’t get much gingko flavor (which I’m not crazy about anyway, so that’s a good thing), but I also don’t get a lot of white tea flavor. I can taste hints of both of these flavors, but nothing as strong or pervasive as the ginger.
It has a very zesty taste that leaves the mouth feeling clean and fresh. It doesn’t taste sweet or like I’ve been eating candy, it just feels clean. Exhilarating. The freshness remains a while after the mint has dissolved.
As for the “Regroup” or focus aspect of the mint, it is hard to report on something like that … perhaps because I didn’t feel unfocused before I popped the mint into my mouth. But, what I can say is that the flavor is zesty enough to really grab my attention. So perhaps it is doing its job and I just didn’t notice because I was enjoying the flavor.
A tasty alternative to the typical breath mint.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
