Hmm… I like these. I wasn’t really sure about them at first … I’ve tried tea mints, some I’ve liked, and some … not so much. But these are quite nice. Not too sweet, and I like that even though they’ve only 1 calorie, they’ve not been sweetened using aspartame – to which I’m allergic. I also like that they’re only 1 calorie because they’re quite tasty and I found myself wanting another after the first… and another after that.
The flavor is intense. The ginger is the strongest note, and the pear comes through nicely. I don’t get much gingko flavor (which I’m not crazy about anyway, so that’s a good thing), but I also don’t get a lot of white tea flavor. I can taste hints of both of these flavors, but nothing as strong or pervasive as the ginger.
It has a very zesty taste that leaves the mouth feeling clean and fresh. It doesn’t taste sweet or like I’ve been eating candy, it just feels clean. Exhilarating. The freshness remains a while after the mint has dissolved.
As for the “Regroup” or focus aspect of the mint, it is hard to report on something like that … perhaps because I didn’t feel unfocused before I popped the mint into my mouth. But, what I can say is that the flavor is zesty enough to really grab my attention. So perhaps it is doing its job and I just didn’t notice because I was enjoying the flavor.
A tasty alternative to the typical breath mint.
