Sen Cha Green Tea Leaf Mints

We all suffer from death breath now and again, I probably get it a little more than others due to my coffee and strange food lovin’ habits. Mints somehow usually give me a headache. I’ve no idea why. The only mint flavoured product I’ve found that doesn’t give me a headache in the past has been Spearmint flavoured Softmints, I know, I know, it’s a bit weird isn’t it. I found these Sen Cha Green Tea Leaf Mints in Holland and Barratt the other day and despite the initial worry of getting a crappy headache, I can now add them to the list of non headache inducing mintyness, woo hoo!

Sen Cha Green Tea Leaf mints came in three different flavours in my local store: Moroccan Mint, Mango and Chai. I’ve just googled though and found there is a magnificent looking Dragonfruit flavour too! (that got me a little excited there) I thought I’d play it safe with the original mint flavoured ones though. What appealed to me was the fact that 3 mints equals 1 cup of tea in antioxidants, that’s a winner in my book. The tin itself is a handy size to pop in your handbag and they’re pretty delightful after a strong cup of coffee to freshen your ‘dragon breath’.

The taste of the mints is lovely. A sweet compromise between spearmint and peppermint with a hint of something else (probably the green tea huh?). They’re quite tiny in size, but are long lasting. The tin contains so many, I’ve had them for over a week and they only just look like they’re starting to go down. The freshness lasts a good hour afterwards and definitely gives me a little more confidence when out and about when talking to people and I’m no longer worried about making their eyes water with the eau-de-la-poobreath.
At £2.99 a pop they’re not cheap for what they are but given how long one tin can last and how they don’t give me a headache I will definitely buy them again. Especially if I get my paws onto that elusive dragonfruit flavour, although the Chai looks very appealing right now too!

I will have to see if they have these at my local one!


Perhaps you are intolerant to aspartame or other artificial sweetener in the mints, causing your headaches.


These look really cute and sound delicious, I might just have to get my hands on some! I'm quite tempted by the yummy dragaonfruit and chai flavours.

I really want some of these! I'm a fan of anything with green tea in it, I prefer matcha to sensha but these look like they'd be really handy!
