The best peppermint tea is Celestial Seasonings. I actually think a true “peppermint” tea is quite rare.
Many tea makers will blend various mint from around the world, making a minty but not quite smooth flavor.
Celestial Seasonings sources their mint from the high deserts of Oregon and Washington. It keeps the tea in a sealed section of their warehouse in Boulder Colorado. On a tour, they’ll let visitors breifly step in for an nose tingling and eyewatering experience in their “mint room.”
One of the best parts of Celestial Seasoning’s peppermint tea is opening the package and having that first smell. Sometimes you’re even treated to a small gift like a magnet or a tin.
Of all the mint teas I’ve drunk over the years, Celestial Seasonings Peppermint Tea is the best.
