Watermelon Mint from Trader Joe’s. . . .

You know how every once in a while, you stumble across a tea that is LITERALLY PERFECT? (I know, it doesn’t happen often– but when it does, hallelujah hands, am I right?) This tea, you guys. I cannot stop cold brewing it for the summer! I grabbed a tin of it at Trader Joe’s during my grocery trip a few weeks ago, and I’ve already picked up a second– that’s how quickly I’m sipping through it.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have a weird relationship with watermelon and watermelon-flavored things– I feel abundantly ‘meh’ regarding melon as a fruit (when I pretty much love all other fruits and veg) and could take or leave fresh watermelon. But when it comes the the flavor? I am ALL about it. This one has that perfectly juicy, melon-y flavor that is spot-on best watermelon– tempered by a hint of mint with just a touch of natural sweetness from the licorice. (Licorice haters, don’t fret– you can’t taste it, it’s just there for a flavor boost). It’s perfect iced as-is, but it also takes a splash of lemonade so well. SO WELL. I’m not done gushing– this iced tea is perfect, friends.

To top it all off? This tea comes in the absolute cutest tin I ever did see, and every time you open it for a whiff, the aroma is absolutely divine. While I normally spend all summer sipping all manner of iced teas, this is one that I just can’t help but want to drink every day, the rest of my collection be darned. Who knew TJ’s would come in with the sleeper tea hit of the summer? Go get you some, stat!

Trader Joe’s Peppermint Tea. . . .

I love peppermint tea. I love the way it both relaxes and uplifts me. I especially love having a cup when I’m having stuffy sinus issues. It just wakes me up, and makes me feel happy to start my day.

I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday, and I decided to try their peppermint tea. You cannot beat the price. I paid $1.79 for a box containing twenty tea bags. They’re practically giving it away!

I brewed myself a cup this morning, and knew I was going to love it as soon as the boiling water hit the tea bag. My whole kitchen smelled minty right away! It has a wonderful mint flavor, not too strong and not too weak. It’s definitely a very high quality peppermint tea, don’t let the low price scare you.

My tummy was a little upset after breakfast because i just had to have that last bite when I shouldn’t have, and so I had another cup of this tea, and it really did help settle my stomach, I feel much better now.

This is definitely a new favorite, and with an absolutely unbeatable price I see this being a staple in my tea cupboard.

I imagine this would make a really refreshing ice tea as well. I plan on making a big pitcher this summer to help cool off after a long hot day.

This tea is caffeine free, so it’s safe for those of us trying to watch out caffeine intake, and it’s also perfect for anytime of the day or evening!

If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, I can’t recommend trying this delicious, refreshing tea enough!

Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea from Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s really makes some great teas at really great prices. It’s just one of the many things I absolutely love about them. This Moroccan mint green tea is no exception. I love mint tea, I love the instant perk up I feel just from taking a whiff. Mint tea actually helped me break my coffee addiction because it just was such a gentler, less aggressive way to wake up my senses. You get the best of both worlds with this tea, the mint is uplifting and energizing, and you get the little green tea energy boost.

I’ve been drinking this tea first thing in the morning for the last few days to help with the fall stuffiness I wake up with. The smell of mint instantly clears my fuzzy head and sinuses. The earthiness of the green tea mellows out the mint tea a little. I’ve had a few mint teas that have been a little on the sharp side for me, but this tea is minty and mellow.

It’s also a very fair price. It’s under three dollars for twenty tea bags, and it’s organic. It tastes much more expensive, trust me!

Although I’ve been drinking this warm, I think this would make a very delicious iced tea too. If you are a fan of mint tea, I cannot recommend this enough!

Here’s the scoop!

With Trader Joe’s Organic Moroccan Mint Tea, we’ve simplified a few of the accustomed brewing steps, delivering full flavor in the handy form of a tea bag. Our supplier first sources organic spearmint from the Pacific Northwest—because mint tea isn’t complete without some of the finest mint leaves around. Organic lemongrass—which adds a bit of zest—and organic green tea from South India complete the trifecta of ingredients inspired by that traditional Maghrebi brew.

When steeped, this tea is delightful, refreshing, and oh-so minty. If you’d like it to taste even more like the time-honored, sweet tea served in Morocco, add a heaping spoonful of Organic Sugar to your mug immediately after steeping the tea. You won’t regret it. Of course, our Organic Moroccan Mint Tea isn’t just limited to tradition. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint for a refreshing drink on warmer days.

Organic Ginger and Turmeric Tea from Trader Joe’s

I saw this tea at Trader Joe’s last week, and I had to try it. I love ginger tea, and turmeric is definitely a spice I try to get in my meals at least once a day. So combining the two in one bag is perfect! This tea also has organic licorice and organic orange peel, so there are other flavors to help balance everything out!

It finally was cool enough the other day to have an afternoon cup of tea. This blend is caffeine free by the way, so it’s a good bet for afternoon and evening sips. I was pleasantly surprised by the natural sweetness of this tea. You can really taste the orange. Turmeric can be very sharp if you use too much, I’ve learned that from experience. This is balanced perfectly, I can actually taste every ingredient.

I love that this is both delicious and healthy. This is going to be a staple in my cupboard this winter for sure.

And as most things from Trader Joe’s are, this teas is an affordable $2.49 a box. I really recommend this blend, it’s a new favorite!

Here’s the scoop!

Leaf Type: Herbal/Tisane
Where to Buy: Trader Joe’s


The use of turmeric [say: “TOO-mer-ick”] is on the rise. This rhizome (underground, rooted stem) is in the ginger family—and looks it, too, except for the striking orange color beneath its skin.

Mix turmeric with cousin ginger and put it in in curries or in your grilled chicken rub, and you’ll get an invigorating, fragrant, (brightly colored) result. Mix turmeric with ginger and put it in hot water, and you’ll get the invigorating and fragrant Trader Joe’s Ginger Turmeric Herbal Tea.

Actually, it’s not tea, per se—since there are no leaves of a tea plant in these steeping bags. Steeped in hot water, our bags produce a “tisane,” aka an “herbal infusion”; what most people (not to mention we) call Herbal Tea.

Now, since we are being completely thorough, we should also mention that our Ginger Turmeric Tea is significantly more than just ginger and turmeric. It also incorporates licorice root, orange peel, orange oil, and black pepper—all of which are 100% organic, as a matter of fact.

By placing one “tea bag” (there are 20 in the box) in an eight ounce cup and adding boiling water, you’re making a caffeine-free beverage that is ready to sip in 3-5 minutes. The ginger will revitalize, while the turmeric awakens with its aromatic quality. Sound inviting? Then, we invite you to experience a cup for yourself.
