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!
