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.

So I’ve got three green tea-mint blends on hand right now and I’ve decided to do a head to head comparison: Berber by Tay Tea, Moroccan Mint by Teavana, and North African Mint by David’s Tea. One of the few green teas I’d like to keep around would be one with mint, so I’m trying to pick which one. Both Berber and Moroccan mint are just spearmint with gunpowder green tea, while the North African Mint has cardamom, peppermint, ginger, Japanese-style Hojicha green tea, licorice root, fennel, clove, and black pepper. So, it’s not really a valid comparison, but this study doesn’t have to pass peer review so it’s happening :-P.

This tea is decent (and I’ve reviewed it before, so check out my other review for more details), but I’d prefer one with just mint and gunpowder. Fennel and licorice are not my friends, but this tea is still not bad to me.

Teavana’s Moroccan Mint wins! I’m as surprised as you probably are.

This note reminds me that I really want to try Thin Mint Green from Tea Spot! It’s also a houjicha and mint blend (peppermint) but with no spices. :D

I got a tin of the Thin Mint from the Tea Spot. It was amazing how fast it went!

This is a combination of some of my favorite things. I love when tea blends have extra herbs in them, so this hits my spicy/savory palette cravings just right. The hojicha green tea base is good, not too roasty and not too grassy, and supports the peppermint well. The fennel and black pepper, while subtle, are definitely present. These spices in particular make this a unique, stand-out tea that I can’t find anywhere else. The ginger and licorice are not overpowering, with the forward flavors truly being the mint itself. Hot, this tea is a relaxing, meditative blend for when you’re feeling a little sick or want an unusual herbal. Iced, might be a little strange for some (the more savory spices brewed cold are unexpected) but if you are a fan of the herbs in the blend, you’ll like it either way. Mint teas are excellent brewed cold in my opinion, or maybe I’ve just had a hot couple of days and this hit the spot.

Grabbed this while on my jaunt of sicko-ness, at the recommendation of the staffer who seemed to have similar tea-tastes. I said to her, “Oh, this is just a green chai?” Which seemed to surprise her that she hadn’t thought of it herself. “Yea, I guess it is,” was the reply. Personally, I’d call this a minty lighter chai, with a hint of creaminess. I like it, but not enough to go out of my way to buy more of it.

This was on my wish list at DAVIDsTEA, before joining steepsters but I know it made it there by checking out the notes here. So, when I saw VariaTEA was selling 10g. As soon as the package arrived I opened it up and smelled it. I completely forgot how it even made it to the list, it smells spicy and I can smell the licorice that I’m not a fan of.

A couple of months ago I over steeped this a good 10-15min, prepared for the worst, I took my first sip and was surprised it was somewhat pleasant in a weird way. I was and still am confused on how sweet it was, it reminded me of stevia.

Last night I let my son pick two teas to cold brew for today. I was so happy this was one he chose and dumped the rest I had left in the mason jar. I took a few sips before giving it to him and it was more drinkable for me but still weird for me: sweet mint and pepper. My sons reaction was a loud “OhYum minty!” He had no problem drinking it. I asked if he liked it as he was playing a videogame he said “Yea I like it, what I don’t like.…what I don’t like is..… those penguin things” I was waiting for him to say something bad about the tea.

Thank you VariaTEA I’m happy I got to try this before buying 50g.

I am a sampling machine today!! WHAT?!

Didn’t know this was a green tea, thought it was a herbal, so I steeped for 3mins at boiling.. Eeek!

Very minty smelling but with a weird… something else to it that I can’t describe, although I haven’t had a mint tea in forever, so maybe this is normal. The colour is a cross between apple juice and apple cider…

Taste… it’s like mint with pepper. Is that possible?
WHAT?! I just looked up the ingredients. It DOES have pepper! That is weird!!
I don’t get the licorice with this one that much which is good. That’s what’s been holding me back from trying it.

This tea isn’t too bad, but I don’t know if I’ll finish the cup. I feel like I’m so done with peppermint. Spearmint is where it’s at. And even then, I very rarely drink that these days. No idea why… Although, black teas with peppermint are okay.

Anyways, wouldn’t buy again. I’m going to say goodbye to this one too.

As a side note: I’m so happy about how many I’ve been able to get through!! What a day! Hopefully I’ll be able to get through more either tomorrow or maybe even this afternoon. I’m on a roll! (realistically this is my fourth today but that’s really good for me!)

EDIT: As it cools the licorice is definitely coming out. And I think I get the ginger too. There is just waaaay too much going on with this tea for me. And the licorice is the main thing that I don’t like… meh oh well.

I used this for its intended purpose: my stomach was feeilng upset. I was skeptical, but it worked. Placebo effect? Maybe. But the flavour was actually very pleasant, nice for a mint tea. Not overwhelming, but not sweet, either. Just nice. I’d usually have a cup of New Delhi Delight if my stomach was feeling a bit “off,” but this would make a nice change every now and then.

This tastes like a cheap sleepy time bagged mint tisane to me. So disappointed :( Boo.

Also wanted to add that there is a very obvious hemp (being polite because I really want to write marijuana) taste to this.

Disclainer: I am not a pothead because I know what it tastes like. Just sayin’! Don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea, but it’s an interesting note so i have to share!


You got me curious ;)


Haha, I get that to from herbal blends sometimes.


So that’s why you have those tiny bags you pack tea samples in….. J/K!!


LOL! You know what’s funny too? My boyfriend told me to use the kitchen scale to measure the quantities of tea to make sure they were all the same and I was like “But WHY?” Can you imagine how completely misleading that could be to someone just passing by and looking into my kitchen window? Let’s NOT get arrested over tea samples please lol


LOL that mental picture is priceless. But I thought you Canadians were much more relaxed about that ;)


Haha! mj1851, depends where you live! In my neck of the woods, there’s nothing to be nervous about ;-)
