Love this one. Got it in a sampler but will likely buy some on my next shipment.

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.

This cup mostly smelled like peppermint with the Darjeeling as a very subtle undertone. The taste was almost all peppermint, but softer than peppermint tea by itself, beautifully balanced by the Darjeeling. I got distracted and let this cool for about 10 minutes before drinking it and then finished it in about 2 seconds without realizing it, so it must have been pretty good :)
I do quite this tea late in the afternoon or after dinner. Peppermint makes my tummy happy.
The flavor is dominantly peppermint, with the roundness of the darjeeling kind of comes out at the end. It feels a bit more substantial than a normal peppermint, but there isn’t much flavor past that.
This tea seems best as iced tea. The green tea they used in this blend doesn’t really break through the peppermint. As a peppermint iced tea, this is great. If I’m feeling crazy I throw some cream and chocolate in for that Andes taste.
