Lipton Herbal Peppermint Tea Review

Lipton Peppermint TeaSince giving up coffee a few weeks ago, I have been trying many different teas. After having good success with Celestial Seasoning brands (Original Indian Spice TeaHouse Chai and Sweet Coconut Chai Tea are just divine), I decided to move on and try some Lipton Teas and reached for Lipton Peppermint Tea.

This tea is 100% natural, caffeine and calorie free, and the only ingredient is peppermint. To make sure that I got this at full strength I allowed the tea bag steeped for at least 5 minutes before I added 2 Splenda and took my first sip. Even as I put the mug to my lips, I could smell the peppermint coming off the tea - it's a one-of-a-kind sort of menthol type odor. The taste really wasn't overpowering, more subtle and not as full bodied as the above two teas that I mentioned, but it isn't supposed to be. There is also that slight cooling effect that is a signature move of peppermint products.

Even though it's caffeine free, that cooling effect gave me a boost in energy. I am drinking it now as I write this, and I was feeling tired and lethargic, but now, somehow, I feel a bit more settled and focused.

A box of Lipton Herbal Peppermint Tea with 20 teabags cost $2.50. It is also available in the Lipton Herbal Collection sampler pack, which also has Lemon, Cinnamon Apple, Orange, Ginger Twist and Chamomile (available at Amazon.com, $24.15 for a box with 18). To get the best flavor from the Peppermint Tea, make sure you give the tea bag some time to steep before drinking it, as you should with all teas, but this flavor is delicate and you really won't get the full effect.
