Twining’s Pure Peppermint Tea – The Flyweight Contender
Mike: Faithful amigos fans will know that I’m not a fan of peppermint tea. On Dax’s insistence I geared my taste buds for the beating they were about to take and agreed to drink Twinings Pure Peppermint Tea. This particular Twinings Tea is not really tea even, because it contains no actual tea leaves. It’s anherbal tea, with no ingredients other than pure peppermint leaves.
So here goes the Twining’s tea review, short and sweet. This peppermint tea from Twinings of London is a blast of peppermint to tongue, . The flavor is overbearing and there is no nuance because of the lack of actual tea or ingredients. It leaves a somewhat pleasant aftertaste, the same as after you got done brushing your teeth. It makes me feel hungry because I usually eat my breakfast directly after brushing my teeth. If you are a fan of peppermint tea, however, it seems like this one is quite flavorful. To each his own.
Dax: Just to be redundant, I’m gonna repeat the fact that I love fresh mint tea. Peppermint tea is the tea for me. I love the complete spectrum of flavor that the herbal tea provides, and it is great hot or cold. Coldpeppermint tea with a steak burrito is uniquely ridiculous, worth a try. So Twining’s Pure Peppermint Teawas introduced to me by the Dominick’s tea aisle, and I said, “what’s good?”. Got to steepin, and was a bit disappointed with what came out of this fresh smelling teabag. For all you beat junkies out there, you’d think this tea had the entire high end present, a huge cut at the 600 Hz, and no low end at all. Blast your favorite jam on AM radio and that’s what I mean, no body. My favorite peppermint tea (which will have its own prestigious tea review soon) gives off a grandiose, full bodied grace at every sip. Twining’s Peppermint Tea is a lot softer, but still a formidable contender in the tea game. I liked it, but there are some better ones out there.
Overall Rating: B+
