How It Tastes

Cooling peppermint is complemented by calming chamomile in this blend that is simultaneously crisp and fresh and warm and soothing. Peppermint, chamomile and rosehip are three of the most well-known and drinkable herbal teas in the market, and they come together to create the perfect flavor: peppermint for aroma, chamomile for sweetness, and rosehips for a crisp tart backbone in the cup.


Xiao's Blend was created early in Peet's history when some of the coffee roasters, tired of tasting multiple cups of coffee, asked the tea packing manager for a refreshing tea without caffeine to enjoy toward the end of the shift. She obliged by blending botanicals on hand, and came up with Xiao's Blend. Within a few years it was so popular at the Peet's roasting plant it was a shoe-in for our customers.

This has been my favorite tea for about 15 years. In cooler weather I drink about a cup a day. I would love to have it back in tea bag form. In the meantime, if I have to buy it a pound at a time (!), so be it.

Thank you for making this blend available! I bought my pound and am drinking it now. It's one of my favorites, and has a soothing effect on my stomach and overall stress levels. Hope you still have it when I run through this sack of it (which, by the way is a good strong package that will keep the tea fresh - thanks).

I love a cuppa at bedtime. Please stock the wrapped individual pouches as I like to keep some with me and give them out to friends.

I can't explain how happy I am that Xiao's Blend is BACK! This is my all-time favorite tea: there's nothing like it at any other tea company - in the absence of the Peet's blend, I've resorted to trying to make it myself, with little success. It's soothing, perfect for nighttime, but it's really amazing if you have an unsettled stomach. Please don't ever let it go out if stock again!

This tea is delicious. I drink it unadulterated, any time of the day, and it is my favorite herbal tea. So glad it's back for a little while!
