I received a bit of this tea from a tea friend.
This tea tastes good, although it is quite different than I expected. Typically, when I think of a mojito, I think of the mint and lime cocktail.
Of course, I can taste the mint in this blend… and it is a very crisp, refreshing peppermint. I can also taste the green tea, although it does sometimes seem to lose its way in this cup – that is to say, the mint somewhat overpowers the green tea.
But there is no lime! There is lemongrass which provides a citrus-y note and a tart appeal to the aftertaste. Even with the lemongrass, I find myself missing the lime.
I find myself enjoying this blend, and yet, at the same time, my palate seems to sense that something is missing. This does make a very delicious iced tea – and I think that is what I am going to do with the rest of this.
