    I know I have been told and I know I have read it somewhere but just to be sure.

    Is Twinings Pure Peppermint herbal tea ok for me to have?

    I won't drink it but want to try mixing it with the chocolate foodpack to make it more drinkable! Have tried it with sunrise orange water flavouring and tonight with coffee.

    I did make a cup to cool in the fridge the other night then in a moment of doubt slung it down the sink just in case I couldn't.

    it is amazing how we get that "oh god it might ruin it panic"

    yes it's fine - any tea made from leaves apparently. It is lovely on it's own by the way!

    It makes the chocolate foodpack much much better!

    Enjoy!

    Mike - I think urinating in the chocolate food pack might make it better! lol

    Actually now you say it - the slightly herbal flavour of some of the peppermint teas available do make it smell rather like pee! :)

    lol I have the Twinings Pure Peppermint - I will have try it if I ever feel the urge to get another choc shake!

    I love the chicken soup with a dash of salt and a good grind of black pepper!!

    Hmm. Peppermint tea is lush, but I haven't had any in ages.

    I have been told, that peppermint tea can aid weight loss - Has anyone noticed a larger amount of weight loss through drinking it? I thought the whole idea was kind of silly... BUT, might as well ask.

    Just to keep you updated... I've gone back to drinking peppermint tea - and OH MY GAWD. It is so nice! Try mixing it with the chocolate foodpack, it's absolutely luscious.

    I had the chocolate foodpack the first time, and thought it was RUBBISH - then figured it smelt so good that I must have done something wrong. Measured a cup of boiling water in which I made my tea and tipped it into a container, emptied in the choc foodpack and used a nice hand mixer to make it nice and creamy as opposed to lumpy - it honestly tasted like hot chocolate with a really nice minty twist. Give it a go! :)

    I am boiling the kettle as we speak to try the peppermint tea - will see how I go with that first. Not a fan of a) hot drinks b) tea and c) the herbal taste but keeping an open mind lol

    Ah well, see how it works for you! I'm not a big fan of herbal tastes or tea - but I do love mint so Peppermint struck a cord there. Give it a go, let me know how it goes for you! I've just experimented with making myself a latte-esque thing: Vanilla foodpack + a spoonful of coffee - it has a nice after taste... but the original taste isn't AMAAAZING, not bad though.

    Funny how we change. The vanilla foodpack is my absolute favourite at the moment!

    I am sat here sipping peppermint tea - it is ok!! Pleasantly surprised!

    I just checked the cupboard and am slightly gutted that I have so many soups! blerghh. It's only till Wednesday! I am going for a majority shake week next week!

    I'm going to do the same next week actually. Which reminds me, I need to send off my order form.

    The chicken soup is the only one I can actually eat these days. :\

    But at least I'm making the most of the shakes.

    I'm not too big on spice, so I'm quite scared of the tabasco!
