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:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
