Usually when I think of Moroccan or North African-style tea I envision something that’s pretty much straight green tea and mint with a sugar cube or lump of rock sugar. I certainly get the cool freshness of the mint though the green tea is a bit harder to find in the flavour profile. The spices add an interesting flare to the blend, the one I notice the most is the fennel and licorice root which gives the tea a sweet aftertaste. Not bad, I like this take on an old classic.

I wish it the ingredient list was shorter and that it would taste more like pure mint (like peppermint herbal from Harney & Sons). All those other spices makes me feel like I’m drinking a tea for sore throat, which is not what I’m looking for.

I ran out of this soooo quickly. So good for a sore stomach.

I’ve had a sorry excuse for a cold the past couple days. Just a slight sore throat and tickle, enough to be annoying but not as bad as I’m accustomed to — I should be grateful I suppose! Anyway, I sniffed this and felt like if anything in my collection could help in that department, this smelt like The One. It’s very soothing on the throat I’m finding, and has that nice cooling mint to it. Honestly I can’t pick apart flavours very well, but it’s a nice mellow spicy taste. My throat feels a bit better, I can’t say for sure if just any tea would’ve felt good regardless, but still.

… I couldn’t really see myself grabbing this on any old day, but for a sick day it’s a nice soothing cup, so I might keep a little pouch of this around.

I tried this at the mall about a week ago but missed reviewing it.

My friend had mentioned to me that this is a good tea, so I figured I’d try it. I tried it cold. I did not like it cold. This was just not a good experience. I LOVE mint teas. They’re my favorites. But I don’t know with this one. The licorice came through in an overpowering way. I think I’m just not a fan of licorice…I’ve had this, Licorice Twist, and Bravissimo all cold and the licorice flavor turned me off. If you like licorice this might be okay.

This tea has potential. It smells good, so maybe it would be better hot. I will try this again as a hot tea and write another review, but as of right now, I strongly disliked this cold.

How can this tea be rated so lowly on Steepster?! It’s amazing. A tried and true staple of my cupboard, and one of our all-time favorites. Erik loves the pepper, fennel, and mint. I love the roasty Hojicha and juxtaposition of warm spices with cool mint. Hojicha holds a special place in my heart. It’s not your average green. In fact, it’s closer in taste to Oolong than green. DavidsTea rarely stocks it beyond this blend, and it seems to be very seasonal elsewhere as well. Nice to see this tea included in the Cold Survival Kit of 2014-2015. That collection is brilliant! Love everything in it.

I was looking at trying that one, but I’m not a fan of green tea. Still, the spices sound so interesting.

Day 13/24 of 24 Days of Tea

Today was actually supposed to be Buddha’s Blend as the package said, but when I flipped the little tin over it actually said North African mint. Not a big deal since I’ve had Buddha’s Blend before and only thought it was just okay. Plus, I was out at a christmas party and this tea jives well after a long night out. Still kind of a bummer though.

Either way, see Day 7 review for North African Mint…

I’m sure if you contact DAVID’s they’ll sort something out for you. This kind of thing seems to have been happening a lot this year.




I’ve been having problems with DAVIDs recently too.. I’m getting less and less happy with their customer service :/


I’m sure they would replace it, but that’s alright- I’ve had Buddah’s blend before and I’m not a fan of the flavouring in it. North African Mint is alright :)

Mookit, sorry to hear that :(


It’s alright, honestly I think it’s just this one location I had to deal with for a couple of days.

I’ll just have to travel a bit farther to another location, where the people were much nicer and more competent hah!


Ah, I see!

I live in a small city so I think the nearest DAVIDS would be hours and hours of driving…luckily have had no problems to date with my location!

Cavocorax sent this one my way since i don’t typically pick up David’s Teas. I don’t adore mint teas, but i don’t hate them. This one is made interesting by the addition of fennel and pepper. I’ve had this a couple times now, without a tasting note and since this is my last cup, i figure I’d better land somewhere on this. If i was in the mood for a mint tea with a twist, this would be a good go to tea. Thanks cavo!

Don’t really know how I feel about this one – I find there is a lot of variety in the way it turns out – definitely do not oversteep it! I think I like this one more as a remedy for sickness than as an actual tea… I had such high hopes for this the first time I drank it!

Amazing for those days when you crave something soothing. Reminds me a lot of Yogi’s Egyptian licorice Mint. I normally do not like mint or licorice, but the combination is strangely addicting.
