My feet are feeling a bit better since I had my shoe inserts adjusted, which is good! I’m hoping for the best.
Today is a beautiful day in San Francisco, the sun is out and shining. I had cold brewed this overnight and am having it after lunch today. Mmm, there is nothing quite like an iced Moroccan mint tea to perk me up.
This is my last bag of this and the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf that’s near my apt. has just closed! I am going to try making my own with the gunpowder I have from Red Blossom and loose leaf spearmint. We’ll see. I might look for this blend again someday, it’s mighty tasty.
I cold brewed two teabags of this overnight and today I am drinking it over ice.
woooah – it’s really good this way! Very strong and invigorating. I’m getting the smokiness from the gunpowder and a ton of mint with a touch of sweetness. I wonder if there is some sugar in the teabag already? Anyway I highly recommend trying Moroccan mint this way!
Tea of the afternoon here…
I haven’t had this one in a while but I got it at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf a month or two ago. It’s a nice day for Moroccan Mint!
Normally my after lunch tea is a pu-erh but I really wasn’t sure since I had Indian food for lunch. Decided to go with something tried and true… I would like to try some other moroccan mints sometime to see how they compare with this one. I think it is a bit on the light side but refreshing.
I must admit I feel like a shmoe for liking a tea that comes from a big chain store like this one. Mostly I do support small vendors and local businesses tho’!
Backlog – had some of this on Saturday with a cute guy I know. :-P
This is actually a classic tea for me and will be a staple for years to come I think. It’s really good iced and it also tastes good hot, just a perfect blend of smoky gunpowder and peppermint. I only wish I could get it in loose leaf form instead of the sachets.
Tea of the afternoon. Now we have Interpol playing on the radio at work which just makes me pensive. This tea is delicious though. It’s definitely one of my “desert island” teas that I would take with me if I was marooned forever. Do you have any?
The weather is warm today and I love drinking this particular blend ICED after steeping it in my glass tumbler. See my previous tasting notes for more details…
