I wanted to try a different take on Moroccan Mint so I bought a sample pack of this tea.
I don’t really taste the Darjeeling at all. I’m also very confused because it tastes like gunpowder green anyway, I get a smoky note at the end. But it is mostly peppermint. Not as strong as a straight up peppermint cup though. It doesn’t have that sinus clearing minty power.
I’m just confused because it even looks like there’s gunpowder in the picture on Adagio’s site. And it’s under green tea, whereas the Sungma Darjeeling is a black. But the ingredient list is just Darjeeling and peppermint. Confused.
Overall it’s enjoyable and like any decent mint tea, it’s refreshing, but I think I was hoping for something just a bit more complex that allows a bit more of the base tea to shine. Oh well, that’s why I ordered just the sample bag right?
