Drinking the last of my cold brew of this one. It’s nice and minty, very slightly smoky, and really refreshing as a cold drink. I’m still surprised at the amount of flavor I get out of this tea by cold brewing it. It’s definitely something I’ll do again, and I might even try other Eastern Shore teas a try.
I only make this as a cold brew these days because I find it the tastiest way to have this tea. The mint and green tea are well balanced, and, although it’s not my favorite Moroccan Mint, it is a decent one. In fact, I’ll probably pick up some more of this once I use the last my stash. This is a good cold brew to keep around, and I’m sure I’ll drink even more of it come summer.
I am planning a tea party for a ladies’ group that I belong to, and one of the sweet ladies there gave me a bag of this tea telling me it is her favorite “company tea” and that she would love to have it served at the party. I told her I adore a good Moroccan Mint, so I’d give it a try and then see about adding it to the tea list. I mean how in the world do I say no to that?
So today after lunch I decided to give this tea a try. It’s a bagged tea which didn’t bother me, but the directions for steeping say to pour boiling water over the bag and allow to steep for five minutes. It’s not in me to pour boiling water over sencha. I can’t see how the tea could be anything but a bitter mess, so I lowered the water temp and steeped it for two minutes. The result? Not bad! It was nice and minty, but I could definitely taste the green tea which was a little vegetal and grassy. For a bagged tea I actually think this is pretty good, and I’m glad I got the chance to try it.
Looks like this will be making an appearance at the party.
