From Adagio Teas

An interesting twist on the old Moroccan Mint tea, which traditionally combines Gunpowder tea from China with fresh peppermint. We kept the latter, and replaced the smoky notes of Gunpowder with the muscatel highlights of a First Flush Darjeeling from India. The result is fresher, smoother and – we hope you’ll agree – a nice improvement on the original.

Had this in a sampler a LONG time ago and it cured my Dad’s cold. So, hey, I thought that was pretty good. I recently picked up some Moroccan Mint from Teavana and it lacked the bite and zest of this tea. So, I upgraded to the bag and it was a tremendously crisp and refreshing mint with little to know aftertaste. Great for the afternoon or post-meal.

I just noticed that this finally came back into stock and I had to get it. The mint is pretty strong, and the darjeeling is an interesting replacement. It makes the tea come out a bit darker than the Moroccan mints I’ve had that used the more traditional gunpowder. At any rate, I do like this quite a bit.

Nice and refreshing. Smooth mint taste but not much tea taste comes through. However, it isn’t as strong as straight up mint which I appreciate.

This is basically just a mint tea… there is a little bit of green in it but i think you can accomplish the same thing if you add some min5 to gunpowder or another richer green. Then you can at least play with proportions.

I didn’t hate it but I wasn’t running to make another cup.

Other tasters are correct in that this is a predominantly peppermint tea with a light tea base. Replacing the gunpowder green with sungma darjeeling changes that typical smoky characteristic that the words “moroccan mint tea” bring to my mind. Here, the darjeeling acts as a light backdrop for peppermint to shine, without ever getting to that overwhelming toothpaste mint feel.

I’m currently too much in love with Loki blend on Adagio (gunpowder, spearmint, rooibos jasmine) to consider reordering this one, but it does make a nice refreshing, not super caffeinated cup for afternoons.

Really enjoyed this tea. It’s great before bed, it’s delicious with a nice minty note. Simple and delicious.

(From momo.) It’s very minty! There’s probably more mint in this than anything else. On my first cup, I couldn’t really taste anything past the mint. Not that this is bad; unlike a pure peppermint cuppa it felt substantial enough to finish (I’m weird about plain peppermint tea this way).

I think it really shines on the second steep, though. The mint is toned way down, and I get some of that richer smokiness on the back of the sip. It’s much more balanced with less of the mint. The wet leaf smells woody and nice. A bit astringent, but I really like this second cup.

This is a very nice and fairly strong mint green tea with oodles of minty freshness and flavour. Great if you want something basic.

More in depth I could not taste the Darjeeling tea at all as the peppermint is very overpowering. Sure the tea is smooth and minty and you can get perhaps a hint of green tea all the same but there is no way I could pin point which kind of green tea is in this. After reading other members notes it would seem I am not the only one to have this problem.

Overall this is nice but very average.

this is a great blend, I really liked how the Darjeeling pairs with mint. Its quite a bit better than many other mint teas.

I enjoyed the minty-ness of this tea and the feeling it gives on the back-end. It’s a great tea, but can be a little overpowering. I get a weird flavor in the midst of the mint flavor, but haven’t yet pin-pointed it.
