There’s that cliche: you get what you pay for. I’ve found that this can apply to some things like clothes, cars, service, and even food. But does this apply to something like tea?
When I was in Europe, I started drinking peppermint tea to soothe my throat from a budding cold. I really enjoyed the tea, that I went to Whole Foods to find a box for home.
We came across 2 brands which were “purely” peppermint, one was an inexpensive brand called Traditional Medicinals, and the other pricier brand called Stephen Smith tea makers.
Was it worth the big price difference? For me, no. It was not a big enough of a difference to tell. Now that I know there’s not a huge difference, I would go for the lower-priced one, or stick to a brand that I prefer like Numi.
