From Kusmi Tea

Green tea from China flavored with Nanah mint from Morocco

Tasting advice: delicious plain, sweetened, or iced in summer. This is the tea used in Morocco for the famous mint tea.

Refreshing and thirst-quenching, it is also delicious after meals.

I’m not a big green tea drinker, but I am a sucker for gunpowder green tea + spearmint. Something about the combination of that “vegetable green” taste and mint just soothes me. The low stimulant factor makes it a great nighttime tea too. For two years I purchased Moroccan Mint from Teavana to satisfy my gunpowder green + spearmint cravings. Kusmi included a sample of this in one of my orders and one taste had me hooked. I tossed out the Teavana blend in favor of this and never looked back!

Not too sharp, making this a green tea rather than an herbal was a brilliant choice. Refreshing, not too astringent and no overly high notes.

I feel like I never log this one, and it’s not because I’m not drinking it (because evidently I am…) Anyway, I’ve made a point of adding a note for it today, mostly because it’s so perfect for a hot day and I had to share that. I love spearmint at the best of times, but its cooling sweetness is just the thing when only a hot drink will do, and it’s also nearly 30 degrees out.

I’ve not tried this one iced or cold brewed yet, because I’m a little bit afraid of the gunpowder base going astringent or bitter on me. I can imagine it working really well, though…if I get it right!

Whoa, thats minty! Spearminty! Toothpastey! The super minty smell appealed to me to try it, even though I’m more of a peppermint person. It is pretty minty, not enough to feel like you cleaned your teeth, but enough to have a minty taste linger for awhile in your mouth. The smokey gunpowder tea is an interesting contrast. Not bad and very refreshing.

I like this one best with a 2 minute steep. :)

The weather here in Boston has been rather Morrocan of late, so I figured that this would be a good time to try out Kusmi’s version of Morrocan Mint tea. I have had this small tin for a while, but I usually change my mind upon lifting the lid, as the preponderance of spearmint makes me realize that this is not really a good first green of the day choice—at least not for me.

The appearance of the dried tea reminds me of an old can of Republic of Tea Morrocan Mint. I must never have developed a liking for it, because it eventually became so old that I ended up throwing it away when I moved.

Gunpowder green appears to be the tea, and the mint of course is spearmint. This tastes okay, but it’s not my favorite combination. I should get my hands on some straight-up high-grade gunpowder to see whether I like that tea. In the past, I tried some middling versions with left me with a negative impression of the entire genre.

My boyfriend just accepted a job in Boston and will be moving there in September, which means I will be visiting from time to time and will probably move there when I graduate (hopefully next year?). So, we might be neighbors sometime in the future :-)


mj: Then we can meet for a tea party! ;-)


Oh fun! A tea party :-)

Thank you Cameron B., for sending some of this my way!

I’m usually a fan of Moroccan mint teas so I figured I’d enjoy this. Oh my gosh, is it MINTY! I smelled the mint in the mailbox before I even opened up the package… he he

I steeped up a pot of it this morning in my little red Stump teapot. It definitely looks like a pellet-shaped gunpowder green tea and is a dark yellow in color. I am finding the spearmint in this blend to be a bit overwhelming to say the least. I like Moroccan mint teas where you can taste a bit of the smoky green underneath it and I’m not getting that here. I wonder how this is flavored and could you please tone it down, Kusmi? hee hee.

This seems to be a common theme between Kusmi and I — their flavored teas just seem a bit too flavored for me.

Anyway I tried this plain and then added a bit of sugar, it is good both ways but I do sort of feel like I’m drinking toothpaste. I put the rest in my Lupicia cooler to cold brew, as I’m thinking this would be really nice with tomorrow’s lunch and a few ice cubes might tone it down a bit as well.

Thanks again Cameron, it was fun to swap with you!

I definitely preferred it cold brewed. :D Good luck!


I mix it with plain gunpowder and sometimes add some peppermint as well. Anyway its good iced.

Yum yum yum! I cold steeped this one for about 12 hours (1 heaping tsp for 8 oz) and it came out very tasty indeed. It’s very refreshingly spearminty – I don’t really taste green tea at all to be honest. I added some syrup because I like my minty things to be a little sweet. This would be amazing after you’ve been outside on a hot day, it’s so cooling and relaxing.

I think I may try this one again with a shorter steep time just to see if I can get a combination of green tea and spearmint flavors, but I am finding it very yummy as is. I’m going to bump up the rating a couple points. :)

Iced 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Great suggestion for iced tea—thanks!

Cameron B.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :D

This is not my favorite green-mint blend. Kousmi used to have a better one with a stronger mint flavor and pieces of rock sugar mixed in, since the N. African taste is to drink it very sweet. I prefer the spearmint-green blend from TeaGschwedner, which also makes Le Touareg—gunpowder green with peppermint. Extremely strong and addictive!
