Ice Breakers Iced Tea Mints
Tea's time in the limelight seems to have no end in sight. Every time I read a tea magazine I learn of a new tea vendor, and even the local grocery stores seem to be featuring more and more varieties of tea. Those "Ready to Drink," or RTD, bottled teas are all over my local Publix. Even the candy companies seem ready to jump on the "tea bandwagon."
In the past year I've come across green tea mints, hard candy with the flavors of both iced tea and green tea, chewing gum made with green tea, and the latest addition to the tea candy store: Ice Breakers Iced Tea Lemon flavored sugar-free mints.
I shared these with DH, who noted right off the initial taste is reminiscent of iced tea mix out of a jar, which is not a great memory for either of us. But just about a half second later and a nice lemony tea flavor appears. Rather odd, really. All I know is, I'm not that much of a mint fan, but I did actually like these mints.
