drank Mojito Marmalade by Tea Forte
19 tasting notes

My third in the TF sampler. A few months ago, I had mojitos in Boracay. That’s the best. There can only be one. Happy Hour from 2-8pm. 2 for 1 special. Lounge chair on the beach, 20ft from the water. Calamansi limes. Boracay sunset. Mmm…

…so I wasn’t expecting much from a marmalade mojito tea. Out of the packet it smelled like orange toothpaste. Kinda sweet in an artificial way. Kinda weak minty, like flavored toothpastes. It tastes the same as it smells. Spearmint dominates but the sweet orange comes through and mellows it out, with rooibos and honeybush adding more sweetness. It still reminds me of toothpaste. Or maybe the jelly filling in those orange-mint chocolates that I see around Christmas time. It’s good, but not mojito good – by any mojito standard, not just Boracay mojitos.

Most mojitos I’ve had use lemon, lime, and mint (which type of mint depends on the place). The flavors create kind of a sharp punch. Tart, minty, refreshing. The sweet orange in this tea mellows out the flavor combo and the spearmint is a weak, sweeter mint to begin with. Overall, it’s a sweet, pleasant dessert tea. A mojito, it is not.
