Green Tea Hint Mints


Really, it's not like I'm always *looking* for tea things, it's just that I so very often come upon them. Like the other night. I was checking out at Books A Million and there on the counter were these tiny little tins of Green Tea Hint Mints. So tiny, in fact, I had to wonder if these were worth 99 cents, but when I saw the words "Green Tea" I was sold.

Astonishingly enough, these tiny, tiny mints pack a lot of punch and are quite flavorful. The mints come in other flavors, and I may have to try them all.

But for now I am quite content to have such a thoroughly compact tin of mints to carry in my purse. You actually have to press on the tin to make the opening appear, and after staring at this a while it struck me that I was having a flashback to the days when Bayer Aspirin came in those tiny little travel-sized tins. My only question now is, what craft can I use this for once it's empty?

Looks like a trip to BAM to pick up some Green Tea Mints. I like the really compact tin too. I remember the tins of nine aspirin tablets that I used to carry around in my purse.

Many people make such creative jewelry these days, I'm wondering if the tin could somehow be worked into a pendant.
