From DAVIDsTEA

Mint magic
¿Like mojitos? This refreshing blend offers you all the pleasures of its rum-based cousin. But instead of knocking you out, it opens all your senses. So you can appreciate the perfect union of mint and citrus with black tea and rooibos. On the other hand, it’s also pretty fabulous served over ice with a splash of white rum and a wedge of lime. Ah, summer!

I have been a hardcore fan-girl of this one since I first got it from Davids about 2.5 years ago. I was broken-hearted every summer when it did not return and I stock-piled all I could from the store and swaps. As a result, I still have 3/4 of a tin of it, which I found at the back of the cupboard lounging by the Extra Bold Masala Chai.

Steeping it up today, I long for the joy I have known this tea to bring – minty, limey, sweet with proper tea underneath it all. Heaven, yes? Well, apparently over the course of my tea journey, rooibos has become less palatable to me. This tea happens to contain a lot of rooibos, and it is giving it a sour smell. Uck. Sometimes I wish my tea tastes never changed at all.

Over-coming the sour rooibos smell, the first sips are mild. Way too mild. Wait, there is something building on the back of the tongue. It is sweet and creamy, almost like vanilla with a hint of lime. None of that sour rooibos smell in the taste but the aroma is really off-putting. As I sip more the mint comes out stronger and the tea is a supporting cast, accentuating the aromas I already described. This is one that has an accumulating taste, becoming stronger as I drink. Heaven!

While the smell is really gross, the taste really does deliver as well as it did for me a few years ago. Hallelujah! This remains one of my favourite flavoured teas and while I would prefer to add a bit more tea (maybe a light ceylon or a sweet chinese black) and cut back on the rooibos, I still love it. I will leave the rating this high as it has delivered consistently for so long. Mmm..

Well, THIS is unusually delicious!
The mintiness almost opens up your mouth to make way for the citrus. It has none of that toothpaste tang that I usually find minty teas have. The rooibos adds a very satisfying heavy mouthfeel.
I have only tried it hot, with a splash of milk and sugar.
Didn’t need the sugar.
Will try it cold on the weekend!

Nice, but not what I was looking for.

This tea is quite good but I was a bit disappointed to find that it was not nearly as delicious as it smells. A nice one to try but there are many new teas to try before I will buy it again. Althought I have yet to try it iced which I imagine would be quite nice.

This tea is really delicious especially during a hot summer day. Very exotic taste.
