THis wasn’t too bad. Nice mint flavor, but no hint of green tea whatsoever. I kept it iced during the summer. It was refreshing cold.

I love moroccan mint tea. This one isn’t my favorite. I got this a while ago from Teavana (like a year ish ago) and took the last 3 or so tsp. with me to college. I decided to finish it up today so I can free up the tin for a new incoming tea. This tea is ok, and I like the spearmint, I think it’s an interesting flavor, but for some reason this blend doesn’t do it for me.
Dry Leaf Nose: Minty with a hint of fruit, smokey and vegetal (herbal)

I was given 4 ounces of this as a present in a blue tin with a diamond pattern. I keep most of my tea out in a cabinet in a common area, but I’ve been hoarding this one on a shelf in my room. It’s dumb, but I like seeing the packaging when I get up, and honestly that’s what I use this tea for. It’s not the strong, bracing type that hauls your sleep-deprived ass to class, but it’s light and it has a good flavor with just enough mint to keep you aware.
To be honest, the mint is light in this one. I was hoping for something a little stronger since the green tea used as the base is pretty average. Still, I can be very happy with the subtle chill that builds up after drinking a tall cup. It’s not perfect, but I wouldn’t warn you off it.
I’ve been told it’s great iced, but I haven’t tried it yet. Maybe when I can get at it again. Also, for anyone with steady hands, you can try a long pour from a good height above your cup and see if you can build a Moroccan-style foam on your tea! I don’t really have the facilities right now, but if you manage to do this, I’d love to know.
