There are six flavors in this pack. The 'Original' mints don't taste QUITE like the original Sencha green tea mints in the square tins, because of the substitution of sorbitol for sugar, but they're very similar.
'Chai' is very good, with a marked but not overpowering spice-chai flavor. For my money, it's the best variety in the box.
The mango and the dragonfruit are both excellent, distinctly fruity but still retaining the green-tea undertones.
The 'Moroccan mint' is ... very, very spearmint. The spearmint almost drowns out anything else. This is probably fine if you like spearmint. I find it a bit overpowering. Your mileage may vary.
The cherry blossom is ... just odd. It doesn't really have a cherry flavor or scent. I'm really not sure how to describe it. This is probably my lowest-ranked of the six flavors.
As a bonus, when you're done, you have six very nice and durable twist-top tins, just the thing for safely keeping an assortment of small items you don't want to misplace. Push-pins, say, or SD cards, or motorcycle fuses, or Christmas tree light bulbs.
Moving past that, these mints are a bit too sweet for my liking. The sweetness overpowers any mint or tea taste. I taste a burst of sweetness and then a little bit of the other two things. I would prefer a stronger tea/mint taste and far less sweetness. But that is a personal preference. My husband does agree though. I gave him a couple of tins and he complained first about them not opening well and then about the lack of minty taste.
These are growing on me though. I have so many that I kind of HAVE to like them. Or at least get used to them. They have some sucralose in them that could possibly upset people's stomachs but I have no issue with it. Stevia is the main sweetner and that is a very safe one so I like that aspect. Just LESS of it.
So, if you can get the tin open and like sweet mints, you will love these. Many people do. I will pass some tins to my sister and eat the rest in time but I will look for something with less sweetness and more flavor when the time coms to buy more mints like this.
The mints come in a convenient cardboard container that can be easily displayed and easy access to the mints tins. The tins are great for carrying the mints. The complaint I have is the lids can be a bit stubborn to remove. I have been buying Sencha mints for several years and plan to continue to be a loyal customer.
"Gift Box" was oversized with 1 inch cardboard filler to make it appear bigger.
Main ingredient is Sorbitol a low-calorie sweetener chemically extracted from glucose. Not sure where SEN CHA naturals name is based on.
5$ per box of mints they better blow my taste buds, but you pay for leaf pressed mints in a fancy box, with fancy names like Bombay Chai or Moracco Mint. Nothing special about the flavors the Trader Joe brand is much better, cheaper without the pretentiousness and Sorbitol.
