drank Moroccan Mint by Market Spice
1769 tasting notes

Yay! I finally got my Moroccan glasses today, so at last I can do the tea face off between four types of Moroccan Mint. The Serendipitea version and this one were provided generously by Missy. Thank you, Missy!

I noticed that this tea had the most fluffy little “bits” and I thought briefly that it might be a lower grade of gunpowder green. Then I realized that the bits were mint, not tea! This tea came in second for me in the taste off, behind Tin Roof Teas. The peppermint in the mix doesn’t appeal to me as much, but the green base is nice, not smokey, and the spearmint is refreshing! This is very minty and good! All of the teas were tasted both unsweetened and sweetened.

Thank you, Missy! :D

What are your Moroccan glasses like? And where did you find them? I’m a sucker for collecting tea-ware, and this is one kind I’ve never looked into before.

Your welcome :D

I bought the red ones on harney.com! They are even prettier in person! The bottom center part of the glass is clear and the rest is red, and they are hand made blown glass. There is a flare in the middle…I guess to serve as a fill line and to keep your fingers from getting burned because hot tea in glass is…well, hot! I used the coupon code Royal12 plus spent a point so they were less expensive. There are lots also available on amazon and on eBay, but the more I looked at these the more I loved them, and I don’t have to mess with chipping gold trim and peeling paint, though the ornate ones are beautiful, too! I hope you find some you love!

Thanks for the recommendation! I will definitely keep my eyes open for them now.

eeek – I just went to the Market Spice website, $7.00 for shipping, that is VERY annoying.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
