Mint Taste Test....

Peppermint is sometimes regarded as 'the world's oldest medicine', with archaeological evidence placing its use at least as far back as ten thousand years ago. Studies have shown that Spearmint is known to be soothing to the stomach and digestive system. It is also high in Vitamins A and C.
 
 
Boy do these kids love to taste test!!!!  We had a 6-1 winner tonight when we did taste testing of Mints.
We tested TWO Moroccan Mints, ONE Jerusalem Mint, and ONE Armenian Mint.
Argo Tea had 5 people think it was the best
Bigelow was picked by 1
All six people picked the same looser tea.  I was sorry to say it was the Tealightful Moroccan Mint.
