This delicious combination of green tea and peppermint tastes more like Moroccan mint tea than anything I’ve had outside of a Moroccan restaurant. A sugar cube in it might make the comparison even more apt. This is truly a light and delicious mint tea, and the green does add to the overall taste profile, making it a slightly grassy, slightly minty brew that actually holds up to more than one steeping. A great after dinner tea- mint helps settle your stomach as well!

I got this at the TeaGschwendner store. It’s very pepperminty and you can barely taste the tea. TeaGschwendner’s herbal blends with applemint, nanomint, and lighter mints spoiled me with their light elegant dose of mintiness, I can barely stomach spearmint or peppermint.

I actually like the tea for what it is. I am not the world’s biggest fan of gunpoweder tea, but this was drinkable to me. I wouldn’t buy it, but I would drink it again if given the chance.

Fascinating, but unfortunately I had a bad reaction to all that mint.

Delicious green tea taste with a powerful peppermint aroma that is able to clear up the stuffiest of noses. Great tea for a chilly night.
