Review of The London Tea Company Winter Wondermint Tea

One of my favourite teas has to be peppermint. I drink it most days to reduce my caffeine intake. So when The London Tea Company contacted me and asked if I would like to try and review some of their teas I said yes. What I didn’t expect was to receive a sample packet of their Winter Wondermint tea in addition to their teabags. So I decided to give this a try first. Onto the ingredients list I checked their website and peppermint and peppermint flavourings are listed, no allergens are highlighted and there is no may contain warning.

On opening the foil packaging the tea pyramids emitted what I can only describe as a very strong but very nice peppermint aroma. It was a lot stronger than other peppermint teas that I have tried. This didn’t intensify on my close up sniff test and didn’t seem to really weaken on smelling an individual tea pyramid. I placed my tea pyramid into my teacup and added the freshly boiled jot water. The water soon changed to the light brown / greenish colour. What was very noticeable was the kitchen soon filled with the peppermint aroma from the tea. Now I have tried a lot of mint teas and I have experienced this once before. On my closer sniff test it smelt a bit like a version of Vics menthol rub. I mean this in a very nice way but it is the only way to describe it. The menthol was very strong indeed. Oh and it certainly helped to clear my nasal passages which I viewed as an additional benefit.

On sipping the tea, it was definitely one of the strongest peppermint teas that I have tried. The menthol flavour was nearly as strong as the aroma. It was very pleasant and when comparing its taste to other peppermint teas that I have tried it was certainly one of the strongest and nicest that I have tried. Due to the strength of the tea I was able to re-steep the tea and experience another cup of tea. What was unique with drinking this tea was the warmth as I sipped on it. It is hard to describe this in a positive way that it was. It felt like it was warming my throat due to its strength and this warmth continued all the way to my stomach. It was a warm comforting and soothing feeling.

So would I recommend this peppermint tea? Gosh definitely. It is one of the nicest quality peppermint teas that I have tried. It is certainly very strong on both its aroma and flavour. I personally prefer this. If you prefer a weaker peppermint tea just infuse the tea pyramid for a minute and re steep and you can enjoy a couple of cups of tea. I will be buying some of this tea to enjoy over Christmas after those large meals. So thank you London Tea Company for producing a nice peppermint tea that I can enjoy.

    This will certainly be very welcome after all that Christmas fare we indulge in, great idea! I love the idea of the warmth you describe and the strong peppermint and menthol flavours – I bet it would do my cold the world of good :-). Thanks for the recommendation! J 🙂

    I have had such bad stomach pain today and a peppermint tea was all I needed to settle it for a while. I will have to look into these tea bags for next time I’m under the weather! 😊

    I love tea but I’ve not actually gotten around to trying peppermint! Green is usually my first call but I definitely think I’ll give it a try having read this 🙂

      Hi Mel, peppermint tea is a great caffeine free alternative. The strength can vary if you’re not used it and you give it a try, just steep for a short while and see what you think. Chloe.
