From two leaves and a bud

Refreshing, minty, organic peppermint aids in digestion and gives clarity of thought. Fresh, pure aroma will lift your spirits and quiet your mind. Mint is one of the oldest of drinks. The mint-after-a-meal custom dates back to ancient Rome, and has been a favorite cure for indigestion since Biblical times.

In attempt to ‘get rid of’ the after effects from the Hibiscus nightmare (I mean “dream”) – I went ahead with this one.

This is a neat green-brown color – rich and deep in color. Smells like regular peppermint…and pretty much tastes like it. Run of the mill, yes…full of minty-goodness, yes.

This tea is just perfect for this evening. I made a rather spicy stir fry for dinner, and this cuppa is calming my stomach and lifting my spirits!

There really isn’t a lot to say about this other than it’s pure peppermint – and it tastes like it! Minty and fresh. Nice – soothing – delicious.

This is everything you could want in a peppermint tisane. It’s crisp, minty, and full of natural flavor. It wasn’t stale or too mild at all. I got exactly what I was hoping for out of this option.

Thanks to Two Leaves and a Bud for sending along this sample!

Might have calmed my Friday stress down a little bit, but also have sent me a little closer to comatose status. Uh oh…

I thought I’d posted a note about this tea, but apparently not. Thanks, Derk, for the big pouch. I’ve had it a few times now, and while it won’t replace the peppermint from Zen Tea in Vancouver, which is sadly unavailable, it comes close. I steeped around two teaspoons in 355 ml of water at 200F for 3, 5, and 8 minutes.

The aroma in the pouch is of strong, sweet mint, and the steeps bear this out. I taste sweet, clear mint with a kick of menthol and a bit of earth. I don’t get stewy or vegetal notes as I have with some other mint teas. The flavour stays pretty consistent over the three steeps.

If I have one quibble with this tea, it’s that I have to use more leaf (two teaspoons vs. one of the Zen Tea mint) and a longer steeping time (three minutes vs. one) to get the same intensity. However, this is a pretty minor issue. Overall, this is a nice peppermint tea I can reach for at night when I don’t want any more caffeine.

The bag of loose leaf I got did not seem as potent as the various sachets I’ve had over the years. Still great but not GREAT.


I’m beginning to wonder whether the Zen mint had peppermint oil to make it so potent. I’ve had to use two teaspoons of all the other mint teas I’ve tried.


I miss Zen tea!


Me, too. I only placed one order with them before they stopped selling tea, but most of what I bought was really good and affordable. In hindsight, I wish I’d bought a pound of their peppermint!

I got some loose leaf sample from California again; derk sent me some! Thank you!

I took two teaspoons and boiling water. Brewed grandpa. As we have peppermint in our garden, I wasn’t that impressed seeing another peppermint tea. But hey, this is so good as ours! Very fresh and I really liked the flavour. It wasn’t muddy, musty or just plain.

i am afraid I can’t say much more as it was as expected, minty and fresh. And as there aren’t any other ingredients, it was “just minty”. But good minty.

Glad to see this tasting note. I just ordered this tea for myself last night.


Bah, I would’ve sent you a good amount had I known. The four ounce size is too much for me.

White Antlers

derk No worries. Heaven help me if I start getting weak willed again and begin accepting more tea into my still bulging cupboards. Thanks for the thought! smiles


I need to get around to trying this tea, which Derk also generously sent me. It smells promising, though. (I’m not the only one to open and smell incoming teas in resealable bags, right?)

Martin Bednář

You aren’t only one Leafhopper, indeed zou aren’t. I have Advent Calendar from Shae and it’s uch hard to not open the envelopes!

Mastress Alita

Resealable packages? Ya, I like to steal a wiff. But nowadays I’m trying to leave all heat-sealed packages sealed until I’m ready to drink to preserve freshness. (There was once a time when I used to rip open ALL my new tea to smell them right away, and after accumulating so much and now trying to sip down those years-old tea, I realize what a dumb practice that was!)


Martin, glad to know I’m not the only one. :) I’d also be tempted by those little advent calendar envelopes!

Mastress Alita, I don’t open all my vacuum- or heat-sealed packages anymore either, although I remember a time when I’d cut open the resealable bags with a heat seal (though never the vacuum-sealed oolong packages). I have five or six bag clips and I limit myself to drinking only that many non-resealable teas. Since I gravitate toward green oolongs, which can go stale quickly, I’ve found this to be a good strategy.

Mastress Alita

I repackage the vacuum-sealed ones (or anything that won’t “reseal” after being cut open) into aluminum ziptop packaging (though it is infinitely annoying when a zip breaks away from the package… I have some bag clips like you describe exactly because of that problem, hahaha). But I used to do that right away, so I could smell the tea. With all new tea orders now, I’m making sure to keep them vacuum sealed/heat sealed right until the minute I’m ready for the first tasting! Takes me so long to get around to drinking things anymore that I may as well try to keep the flavor as long as possible…


That’s a good idea. Where do you get your empty ziptop bags? I also tend to go through teas slowly and probably don’t need any encouragement to open more of them!

Cameron B.

@Mastress Alita – I’m getting to that point, too. I have so many older teas that are already open that I need to sipdown…

Mastress Alita

@Leafhopper: I purchase these ones, usually both the smallest size (good for samplers/up to an ounce or so) and the next size up (2-4oz depending on the tea).



Thanks! The price is reasonable, though the shipping to Canada pushes it up. I’ll have to check if Amazon Canada has these bags (though again, do I really need an excuse to open more tea pouches?).

Every coffee counter at every large medical facility is the same: oversized Costco muffins and pastries and bagels, bags of chips and M&Ms, ‘granola’ bars. You’d think with the way Kaiser promotes healthy eating that such items wouldn’t be available inside their facilities. I opted for a breakfast burrito from this fine establishment. I knew it would be the most basic egg, potato and cheese log ever crafted by a human but I was HONGRAY.

My radar is always pinging for tea and the innocuous ‘two leaves and a bud’ sign pinged back. The Doctor Coffee counter had a selection, even! But only 1 bag left of Peppermint. I hesitated. You know when you’re sharing an appetizer and the lone piece of cripsy calamari remains? The “No, no you take it” back-and-forth bullshit, and that poor squid who gave its life for your sustenance gets cold and soggy because everybody’s too damn polite to pop the last piece in their mouth. Yeah, no. Do not hesitate. Give me that last Peppermint sachet! It’s mine! I have to settle the upcoming gurgles from a subpar burrito and the ensuing intestinal rot from these antibiotics waging war. You know what I’m talking about and I’m not sorry. We’re all human.

There’s a reason why this is my absolute favorite peppermint leaf. It is by far the cleanest, least herbaceous and stewy, most mentholated and sweet peppermint I’ve ever had. Powerful stuff. Not for sissies.

Flavors: Menthol, Peppermint, Sweet

I agree, it’s one of the finest peppermint I had. Close behind is Celestial Seasonings I brewed myself (second bag from you) JUST yesterday. Need to finish this one too. Once I will cook something heavy again, as yesterday deep fried celery root (experiment by other family members)… it will come.


Well, you just shot my “eh, peppermint is peppermint” assumption to smithereens!

Cameron B.

Mmm cheese log! XD

White Antlers

Agreed. I always have a box of this in the pantry. It kicks ass.
Hope you get sorted out and feel better soon.

Mastress Alita

I’m the asshole that will unabashedly take the last of whatever is sitting in the breakroom. None of that slicing it in half BS either.


Your review inspired me to finally try this tea! I enjoyed it, though I may need to use two teaspoons instead of one.

Lexie Aleah

I really likw some of the teas from this company.


I need to buy this for Superanna, then. She loves peppermint tea,

Cameron B.

I looked for this at the store today! They had a few teas from this company, but unfortunately this wasn’t one of them… :(


But M&Ms are healthy eating…


Gosh, I’m way behind with these comments. Leafhopper, the loose leaf isn’t as fresh as I would have liked. The past few nights I’ve been brewing 2tsp to 300-350mL and it’s been up to par.

This was a lovely evening cup of peppermint brewed in boiling hot water. I’m lucky that my friends keep tea in case I am at their house. These individual sachets keep things fresh. The menthol is strong, but soothing. It has a little bit of natural sweetness. This brand makes one of the better peppermints out there – very strong and fresh.

Two Leaves and a Bud isn’t a brand we see on shelves around here very often, so I sort of forgot they have such a nice assortment. I like their straight-up Assam.


I feel like they used to be more widely available! I miss them.

I adore peppermint tea and this one tastes really good. I like it better than the Tim Hortons one.

While visiting a local coffee shop in the mountains, I stumbled upon this brand and decided to try the peppermint. The tea smells very strong of peppermint but has a very refreshing taste to it.
