I would love for Adagio to sell a tea similar to Bigelow's Plantation Mint. Black tea flavored with mint.

I've never had Bigelow's Plantation mint, but have you tried the spearmint tea?

Adagio's spearmint is an herbal tea. I'm looking for a black tea flavored with mint. I'm surprised Adagio doesn't offer one being as mint is such a popular flavor. Maybe I could try mixing spearmint with Irish Breakfast, but it would be nicer to have a black tea flavored with mint.

Cassablanca Twist, although, there won't be any in stock for a while yet, and it is listed under green.

Casablanca Twist is definitely what you're looking for. The two are very similar, although the Casablanca is a good bit better, IMO.

I'm not a big fan of green tea, but I will try the Cassablanca Twist when its back in stock. Thanks for the suggestions!

CT isn't actually green tea. It is made with Darjeeling which is actually a light black tea.

That is the wonder of loose tea you can make what you want. Just mix a teaspoon of spearmint leaves with a teaspoon of a black tea that you enjoy in your infuser and brew up a cup of spearmint black tea the way you like it.
