So while I was at Target tonight I went down the tea aisle looking for a plain peppermint tea. The only herbal mint tea they had was Harney and Sons peppermint. That was $5.99 for a good sized tin. Which is a good price for what you get, but I had only $8.00 to my name. So I bought this one. I usually like peppermint tea in the evening after a heavy meal, and this one is specifically called After Dinner.
I think I’m having buyer’s remorse. It not a bad tea, but I wanted peppermint and think I should have held off on buying until I found my stash peppermint or another mint tea. The flavor here seems very busy. Like I can’t quite identify all the flavors. First I think “There’s the mint!” but it immediately changes to black licorice. Or is that the ginger? I am just not sure. It’s all sort of muddy. And the liquor itself is cloudy.
As I said, it’s not undrinkable, but it’;s not peppermint. I think I may bring this box of bagged tea to church. On Wednesday evenings we have casual Bible Study and children’s classes, and there is a coffee pot and a hot water kettle for tea and hot chocolate. someone may appreciate this one a little more than I do.
