I received a bit of this tea from a tea friend.

This tea tastes good, although it is quite different than I expected. Typically, when I think of a mojito, I think of the mint and lime cocktail.

Of course, I can taste the mint in this blend… and it is a very crisp, refreshing peppermint. I can also taste the green tea, although it does sometimes seem to lose its way in this cup – that is to say, the mint somewhat overpowers the green tea.

But there is no lime! There is lemongrass which provides a citrus-y note and a tart appeal to the aftertaste. Even with the lemongrass, I find myself missing the lime.

I find myself enjoying this blend, and yet, at the same time, my palate seems to sense that something is missing. This does make a very delicious iced tea – and I think that is what I am going to do with the rest of this.

Is there rum flavor in it? That may be what’s missing. I know my local tea shop has a mojito blend only it has no rum flavoring in it so it’s just lime and mint green tea.

It also might taste better cold made w/ soda water. I was gonna get 52teas’ champagne mojito tea cuz I LOVE both champagne and mojitos, but the idea of hot mojitos just sounded icky lol.

No there is no rum flavoring either. I brewed up what I had left of this tea, and have it cooling in the fridge so that I can enjoy it tomorrow. I added some “true lime” to it before it cooled, so I am hoping that the addition of lime will be just the ticket for me.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
