A bit too sweet for a tea
on 30 April 2014
I love all types of mint tea (and I love sweets!!) so when I saw this in the shops I thought I'd try it.
Unfortunately, for me, it was far too sickly-sweet and overpowering for a tea. It smells exactly like an old-fashioned sweet-shop - a very strong buttermint-sweet smell, but it wasn't all that great as a warm drink.
It wasn't as refreshing as the other mint types (peppermint, spearmint etc), it was just a bit too sickly and made me feel a bit thirsty as if I had eaten too many sweets, and I immediately had to make a normal peppermint tea as something a bit more refreshing!
It's good quality and has strong flavour so for some people it will be lovely, but personally for me I just found it a bit too over-the-top-sweet. A strong buttermint flavour like that tastes so much better as a proper bag of sweets, not as a tea.
It also makes your whole tea cupboard smell like a sweet-shop so you might want to pop some cling-film round the box once it's open, hehe! :)
