drank Moroccan Mint by Steepster
248 tasting notes

Origin: Zhejiang, China
Dry Leaf: Fresh-scented mint—smells like my gum that I get at the health food store. I love spearmint. The tea is shiny and rolled into little “wads”,,not balls bc they’re oval knot shapes. Dried mint is still green and fresh.
Method: Large infuser basket Western style,,,1 tsp tea for 12 oz,,,,185F for 2 minutes
Wet Leaf: Minty scented leaves unravel to be somewhat chopped young leaves with stems and chopped mint.
Liquor: bright golden champagne color with a nice minty scent.
Flavor: As a hot tea, this is very nice and soothing. Tastes only of light mint, no tea taste coming thru. I could see drinking this hot when you don’t feel well as it is very soothing. It tastes like you steeped fresh mint leaves from your garden.
As an iced tea, it is VERy refreshing!!!! I love Moroccan Mint and this one is a very good quality! It is nicely mint and a hint of cream in the flavor and mouthfeel.

I like Ayurveda, Yoga, Zumba,
walking, stand-up comedy clubs.

Love chefs and foodies. Love veggies!!!!
I avoid artificial and processed foods such as diet sodas because I think those things affect your palate for tasting teas, foods, wine.
I always use filtered Culligan water for tea, no tap or bottled so I don’t find many teas I dislike bc I start with super delicious water.

Also enjoy bonsai, xeriscape gardening, my doggie, & all nature.

Preferred brewing method: Gaiwan

Favorite Varietals:
Ye Sheng (wild)
Yunnan Da Ye (large leaf)

I have stopped rating teas with a numerical value here on Steepster because I realized on May 13, 2014 (a tea enlightenment lol) that once you start to learn what teas you like, get practiced and good at gong fu, and which companies are selling quality tea,,,they are all 100’s to me because I purchase and drink what I like and the best I can find.
I respect all the work that goes into the tea that I am drinking and I like thinking about the different terroirs they come from.

Namaste!
