Chai Flavored VerMints

You may have heard of "varmints" but have you heard of "VerMints," by any chance? I came across these Vermont-made VerMints in a market in Florida in December and had to try them. The tin says they are "flavored with Fair Trade tea from our friends at Honest Tea." I really like the light, refreshing taste of these little mints!

The inside of the tin tells you these Kashmiri Chai mints taste of cardamom, cinnamon, pepper and tea from India.

And there is absolutely no reason for this last photo except that I thought the close-up made these mints look like a pile of tiny frozen scones! After I paid nearly $5 for my VerMints, I began to see them for less than half that at a T.J. Maxx or two, so be on the lookout if you're a fan of tea-flavored treats!

I don't think that I've seen these VerMints, but I'll be on the lookout at Marshalls and Ross now.
I like to drink Indian Spiced tea, so I'm sure these mints would be to my taste.

Nice photos - wish I had a pile of real frozen scones to pop in the oven right now.
