MMmmmmmmmmminty!!
Ever since I tried Moroccan Mint as a sample not long ago, I’ve been craving it. Badly! So when I saw that Tea Emporium carries some, my feet walked me there against my will, I kid you not! I told them, please take me back to the office or I’ll be late for work. My wallet and cupboard can’t handle this purchase!!! but off they went, taking me to the shop where my feet then handed off to my tongue, who did the work of ordering 50g. Really?! How do I not have control over this???
Anyhow. The tea itself is pretty good. Nothing compared to the sample I had, which would have easily scored 100.
I was pleasantly surprised when I experienced no nausea. It makes sense that I didn’t, but I wasn’t sure if hoping would jinx my chances. The mint is very strong, which I quite enjoy…. but it’s also a bit spicy the way spearmint can be. A little too much. However I think peppermint would be sweet in a bad way when mixed with gunpowder, so this is def the better option.
Oh and I can tell ya now… this will take forever to use up, since it only requires 1/2 tsp per cup! and with my penchant for resteeping, well it’s gonna be awhile before this is decupboarded :)
The first steep was amazing when it was hot… but since it is a green, well it didn’t stay piping for long. As it cooled, just a hint of abrasion came out. I think the mint actually became stronger.
The second infusion was more of the same, only a tad greener and less minty, obviously.
Then on the third infusion, the mint was overtaken somewhat by the natural sweetness of gunpowder that I’ve heard comes out in later steepings. and that is as far as I got because a) I was outta time at work, and b) that background sweet note (different than the one mentioned above) that I so dislike was starting to peek out and I wanted to avoid a confrontation!
So overall… This is just what I was looking for!! Sure, it could have been smoother but hey I’ll take it.
Also, in Morocco they actually serve this with sugar so I’m contemplating adding some next time just to see what its like!

(chuckles) bad feet!

Indigobloom

yes, bad bad feet! ugh, and working in collusion with my tongue, entirely bypassing my sense of will. Urgh, one day I’ll learn their secret :P

ChibiiCherry

Those darn feet…I know that feeling especially when they work together with my tongue to bypass my common sense =P sounds like a delightful tea though

Indigobloom

It is quite nice! I could send you some if you’re up for a swap :)

ChibiiCherry

I would not be opposed – it would be my first swap =)

Totally stole some of this one from Indigobloom to compare to the one I already had in my cupboard. Despite what the directions on the package said I used a full teaspoon since I had a big cup to fill. In the true style I added some sugar and off I went with my tea to work.

Hot, this tea is nice. The mint is strong but not overpowering, allowing the tea flavour to shine by its side. I found that it was slightly dry, a note that was emphasised the more the cup cooled down. By the time my tea had cooled completely I found that I wasn’t enjoying this quite as much. It is definitely a nice tea, but one that really needs to be enjoyed while still hot.

I so agree, this one loses all appeal for me when it’s cooled. but when hot, it has my heart :P

Hoo boy.

A few weeks ago, I got some Moroccan mint tea with peppermint in it. It was okay, but I’ve found that peppermint can get harsh really quickly. So I busted out this sample I got last week, hoping that the spearmint in this tea would be more to my liking.

I didn’t like this at all. Which is a shame, really.

I don’t know how to describe this – there just seemed something off about the green tea base. Like it was stale or old or slightly spoiled. Highly unpleasant. I underleafed the tea – the steeping instructions say to use 1 tsp of leaf for every 6 oz, and I only had 3 tsp of leaf yet still made a 24-oz pot – but I doubt that’s the culprit here. There was just something really unpleasant about the whole thing.

I poured out a mug for my mother (who has a cold, and even if she didn’t, wouldn’t really know better to know this tastes off) and poured a mug for myself. I couldn’t even finish the one mug I poured, and just tossed the remainder of the pot down the drain.

It’s entirely possible that this tea would suit someone else, but it just tasted odd to me. What a waste.

Edit: This is a sipdown, thank goodness.

yay for sipdowns of teas you’re not a fan of haha

I didn’t even know I wasn’t going to be a fan of this one, even! It’s so weird – I like green tea, I like mint, but I’ve found it hard to find a good green tea with mint. I really hope the Just Marvelous Moroccan Mint Tea from Just Organic is good, since that was one of the rewards I chose in their kickstarter survey.
