June Wedding! Something new! This is one of the few Seven Smith Teamaker teas my local grocery has, so I picked up a box tonight. This is their Moroccan Mint blend, and most Moroccan mint teas I’ve had have gunpowder green bases; this one is a Mao Feng base, and adds lemon myrtle (my favorite of the citrus herbs) along with the spearmint. So I’m actually pretty curious about this! I’ve also just been pretty pleased with the other teas I’ve tried from them in the past; their chamomile tea is one of the few chamomiles I can drink (thanks to the blend of rooibos and other florals helping mellow the flavor a bit) and their earl grey is probably my favorite plain earl grey I’ve had yet.
This was certainly a tea to my tastes! The spearmint and lemon myrtle blend into a really lovely flavor combination that isn’t too minty, and isn’t too lemony, while still providing nice flavor notes of both. And the green tea base has a very nice grassy flavor that can still be tasted beneath the mint and citrus, which I appreciate. The whole blend works together very harmoniously, and I’m imagining that this tea would work really well iced, as well. I imagine that will be the next thing I do with this!
Flavors: Grass, Hay, Lemon, Spearmint
