InfiniTEA War: Peppermint and Creamy Vanilla

If you thought this war was over, you were wrong. If you guessed that this tea taster was down for the count– well, you were half right. However, she is fighting to get back in form. There is tea to taste. It’s the civilized thing to do. 

Our next contender is a surprisingly toned athlete. Though not too surprising, as this one hails from the Twinings of London Canadian branch (Twinnings North America) in Brampton Ontario. That makes this tea a true Canadian with British ancestry. 

Don’t give me that look. Just because I’m Canadian with British roots doesn’t make this tea-battle biased and unfair in the least. This contender has to meet stringent requirements as the rest of them did.

That being said, let’s see what this challenger has to offer. Thus reads it’s motto: Dare to resist the smooth, creamy taste of this vanilla flavored peppermint tea. 

It’s true: Canadians are difficult to resist. It’s our glowing charm. 

However, does this Canadian (not me, the tea) have any power behind its subtle creamy vanilla punch? 

On first taste the answer was yes. In fact I knew right away that this one would come down to a “T tastes Tea” taste off.

Two pots of tea were consumed in the writing of this challenge. The clear winner came out swinging. It was no contest at all as a rather smooth Canadian quickly took out it’s American opponent. Go Canada!

Yes, this tea has a really nice left hook. I was hooked from the start. It truly is very creamy, raising my regular peppermint tea enjoyment up a great big notch. 

I’m pleased to inform you that this mild mannered, yet strong and irresistible Canadian (still talking about the tea… maybe.) pairs really well with something chocolate. The proudly Canadian “Good Bites” are really good even if my husband ate one, looked at the package and questioningly said to me “Good Bites?” My surprised response to him was, “You don’t think they’re good?” He retorted, “I wouldn’t call them good.” There was a definite emphasis on the good.

No matter. There was more for me. 


Here’s a Good Bite

“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.

Mark 10:18

Why callest thou me good? This is said, not as denying that He was good, or as being angry with him for calling Him so, but in order to lead this young man to a true knowledge of Him, and His goodness, and even of His proper deity:

There is none good, but one, that is, God; some render it, “but one God”, as the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Arabic versions; and so the words are a proof of the unity of the divine being, and agree with Deuteronomy 6:4, but are not to be understood to the exclusion of the Son and Spirit, who, with the Father, are the one God: nor do these words at all militate against the deity of Christ, or prove that he is not God…”

    1. I understand. πŸ™‚ Given the added bonus of writing, reviewing, and segueing into Scripture it makes trying new teas much more fun. Glad you smiled. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, he does, does he? Does he know they’re only 10 calories? I have a feeling his tail burns about 10 calories a second as he gets his treats. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£


  1. Now this here American happens to be a compulsive tea drinker. I mean hot tea, not iced.

    And Peppermint is one of my favs. I’ve tried the Stash, but not the Twining’s peppermint and vanilla.

    I plan to try β€œtea and dog biscuits β€œ with the Twining’s soon. 🀠


    1. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ But I didn’t recommend the dog biscuits. There’s no guarantee on that one.

      Of course, even if they were taste tested (which they weren’t) there’s no guarantee that all will agree with my verdict on the Good Bites or the teas.

      Some may NOT prefer the Canadian tea over the American one. And that would be perfectly cool with this Canadian. 😎 Happy tea drinking. Do you dunk your dog biscuits? 🀣


  2. Even the name Peppermint and Creamy Vanilla sound good (sorta ice creamy.)😊 Love your tea war post returned β˜•they always make me smile. πŸŒΊπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸŒΊ


    1. Yes, it does sound good too, doesn’t it? I’m so glad they make you smile. That makes me smile. Take care Jeanne. I hope your weekend is warm like your lovely comment. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸŒ»πŸŒ»

    1. Yes, I wonder that too. Here it’s quite easy to find a lot of American products. But I have no idea if it goes both ways. Thanks for making me smile with your warm comment. Blessings my friend. ❀

    1. Thanks so much Gavin. πŸ™‚ This locomotive is working on gathering some steam. She’s getting there. 😁 Thanks for stopping by. Next stop… the Conductor’s blog.

      I was actually watching a train the other day, well trying to. If there weren’t houses in the way I could see more than a glimpse of the cars rolling by. Take care!

  4. This is the first time I’ve come across your tea review, Tina. It was fun to read. Have you ever tried masala tea? ..or ginger tea? or even elaichi {cardamom} tea? These are teas I like. They’re all strong teas with milk. You may not prefer these ….but I just thought of mentioning ….tring to see how far the twin connection goes πŸ˜‰


    1. Thanks Rue. I have tried ginger tea, but not the masala tea or elichi tea. I’ll have to write those down! They sound interesting. Yes, the twin connection… hehe. πŸ˜†
