From American Tea Room

Marrakesh is our own Moroccan mint green tea, based on a tradition dating back to the days of the Silk Road. It is a blend of spearmint leaves and tightly rolled pellets of Chinese green tea (called “Gunpowder Green” for their gunpowder-like appearance). Traditionally, Moroccan tea is mixed with an enormous amount of sugar for a thick, almost syrupy consistency, but our Marrakesh blend stands on its own. The bronze, crystal-clear infusion’s smoky, roasty aroma is freshened by a touch of mint, and the flavor is tingly and refreshing with an impressive smoky depth. The aftertaste is delicate and smooth, making this a supremely sippable tea whether it’s served hot or iced.

Tea of the afternoon……

And tea #10 of 24. This one was sent by QuiltGuppy for my green tea and oolong self education. Thank you so much for sending this one as it is my first Moroccan mint! I also don’t think I have had a gunpowder green on its own, so this is completely new.

I love the refreshing flavor of the mint. I am trying to drink this one as is. It kind of reminds me (in my limited scope of mint green teas…) of Candy Cane Lane but more like real tea as it has much more body and fewer flavors to distract from the green. I expected the color of the tea to be lighter, but it is a light caramel color. Maybe it is more in line with other gunpowders….I have a sample of just gunpowder green that I will have to try for comparison. All in all, a refreshing tea and a great afternoon pick me up.

15 oz. mug, just over 2 tsp tea blend, 180 water, 3 minutes.

I got this as a free sample sachet. Thank you American Tea Room! I feel monotonous for all the 80’s I’ve given, but all the teas I’ve had deserve decent ratings.

I’ve had so many frickin versions of this tea, and the spearmint of this one is fresh thank heavens. It was just barely crisp enough for me to drink straight, but some honey would be a natural compliment. I only brewed each cup two minutes, and two minutes and 20 seconds, so I tasted the green tea more in the background in the texture. The balance was nice and it was not too astringent or bitter.

The sachets are on the pricy end of 10 bucks for 15 sachets, but the loose leaf is actually a decent price of about $25.20 for the 7 ounce serving. I personally do not prefer this type of tea often, but I have to say this product compared to what I had in Egypt so long ago which is saying something. I definitely recommend this if you are into mint or if you have a penchant for Marrakesh Green Tea. Now to figure out when to travel to Morocco in an impossibly more pleasant political environment.
