This is an outstanding, beautiful, and elegant cup. The green tea is flavorful and light. The mint is soothing. I feel very healthy after a pot of this. Drunk neat, the taste explodes on the tongue. It makes me chant “Carpe Diem! Carpe Diem!”

For the record, this really wasn’t anything at all like the mint tea I actually had in Morocco – that is very very minty and very very very sweet (like “the sugar won’t totally dissolve in your hot cup of tea” sort of sweet).
The gunpowder green tea is an interesting twist on “Moroccan” mint tea, and while I was initially taken aback by the difference, I really like it – its not all about sugar and mint, its about the green tea too. I’ve started loving this on cool fall mornings, but its also amazing as an ice tea when sweetened (moderately). I don’t know if “Moroccan” is the right word, but “good” definitely is.
I don’t drink it very often, but when I do I really enjoy it. Goes way back to before I really started drinking tea, and I had this at a friend’s place. So there’s a part of my brain that always associates it with Middle Sunday at Steve & Paula’s. Nice mix of flavors. (Often good during a cold.) Occasionally add sugar, but plain is also good.
