Recent Tasting Notes

Thanks to MissB for this interesting blend! The flavor is not quite absinthe. More like peppermint and star anise over a slightly weak gunpowder base. The weakness of the base might just be a function of age, though – this has been sitting in my cupboard for a while. Sipdown!

Brewed 12oz of this and took it to the park for a walk.
This tea has a mouth feel and aroma that does not match with its taste. So odd to feel mint and smell mint but not taste it. The green tea is a small portion of the blend which is okay, but overall the taste just isn’t as appealing as I would want it to be since I desire a more distinct taste when something says absinthe.

Grabbed this while in Montreal six months ago and promptly mailed it back to myself to enjoy at home – which is now. ;)

Interesting tea, quite a bit more subtle than I was expecting. As the instruction say on their website, this is meant to be enjoyed Moroccan style, which means heavily sweetened. While I can see this reasoning, it’s just not how I like my tea. And so…

Very grassy green tea, with only the breath of mint in there (you know what I mean – where you inhale and can feel the coolness of the mint, but not taste it). There’s something making this creamy as well as very smooth – I think the creaminess is the actual green tea, whereas the smoothness is from the absinthe. Which, just now, I only realized was an herb.

Doubt I’d drink this again, yet can see how a green tea lover might really appreciate it.

Is there a absinthe taste or it is more of a marketing word?


I don’t know what absinthe actually tastes like, but this is a spice company that also blends their own tea. So the ingredients are only green tea, absinthe, and moroccan mint. Sometime who has had the absinthe drink would have to taste it to tell me… I really haven’t a clue.


Allow me to volunteer for that task!


Sure! Send me a note and I can send it your way.

Shoot, me too! I have a few alcohol inspired teas to swap with.


There’s enough for two Liquid Proust, and I’m happy to share. I don’t want any tea back though.. Unless maybe it’s something being amazing. I just have too much tea.
