clipper teas : after dinner mints

I make mint tea in a gypsy-style teapot found in a second-hand store long ago. Sometimes I add fresh mint leaves or honey. 

I usually sip it in the afternoon or the early evening, often in the midst of the witching hour - an attempt at some calm.

Thanks to Clipper Teas I've been drinking after dinner mints; a subtle yet refreshing blend of peppermint, spearmint, fennel and ginger. Gently spicy, this is the perfect tea to settle the tummy, aid digestion, calm the nerves and is particularly good for breastfeeding mumas (fennel is great for milk production). 

Come summertime I'll be drinking this minty brew in the late afternoon with ice and sliced apple.  Do you drink ice tea? If so, what's your preferred flavour?

  1. I could step into that first picture and indulge in cup myself. I love iced tea...rosehip usually, or sometimes lemon. We often make water iceblocks out of mint tea with tiny chunks of apple or grapes. My biggest little person loves them. May be just the thing to keep my wee little man cool this summer. I think I may as well just order a whole pack of clippers teas as they all sound delectable. Thanks for sharing and hope all is lovely in your world.

  2. I'm not usually a herbal tea drinker - much more into weak black teas with lots of milk - but that dear little tea pot could entice me to try after dinner mints. And my girlie loves more florally tea - and strangely enough likes them cold with milk - I think she first tried it in a Japanese restaurant. Perhaps some boxes of clipper tea will be lovely for her christmas stocking :-) I've not put sliced apple in summery iced teas - will have to try that. Enjoy a lovely weekend!

  4. This sounds amazing! I have a cup of mint tea before bed every night to help me digest my dinner and get in a restful frame of mind. I haven't tried this brand but will next time I am out of my current one. I'll definitely give the iced tea a try too even though I rarely drink it! Luna. x

  6. I enjoy a peppermint tea after dinner, especially if we've had a heavier meal. As for iced tea, lemon is my fave. I love the packaging of the Clipper Teas. I have some of their white tea here in my pantry which I have yet to open...

  8. Oh bother, all these lovely Clipper teas look wonderful but am yet to find these new infusions either online or in a shop. You must have a very well-stocked health food shop in your little neck of the woods. That photo is pure perfection. P.S my minuscule lemon verbena is growing at a snail's pace -- just waiting for a big dose of sunshine I hope.

  14. I´m also a serious tea lover (and also buy and judge a tea by its pretty box) but I never tried Clipper´s teas!. Actually yesterday while I was doing some quick shopping at the supermarket I saw those cute boxes and was just this close to buy them all. But I didn´t.

    Now, I `have to´buy them all!. ;-)

    I´m loving the fact you´re sharing some properties of the herbs and teas. That gives us all a better idea how to or when is best to drink them. For the iced tea, I love HongKong style iced milk tea or lavender-chamomile.
