My iced tea today is “Cucumber Mojito” by Par Avion Teas, which sources and repackages tea blends from Tea Guys. This particular Tea Guys blend has been updated to “Cucumber Mint Mojito” and has slightly changed in its current form — Tea Guys now has tons of preservatives in their teas (sea salt, malic and citric acids) but besides that, the new version has removed the jasmine petals and added way more lemon (lemon peel and lemon juice). I still have the original Cucumber Mojito blend ingredients, which had the jasmine petals and only had lemon myrtle but was lacking the lemon peel and juice.

Since this green tea blend is meant to mimic a cocktail, I cold steeped it and am enjoying it iced. “Cucumber” is a bit misleading though, so I can see why the new incarnation was renamed “Cucumber Mint”, because the first flavor I’m assaulted with is a very strong minty flavor. In fact, when I emptied the next quart mason jar in my fridge into my water bottle and took a swig, I couldn’t even remember what I had made. I could tell it was a green base from the color and mouthfeel, but couldn’t remember making a minty green tea. I’d already finished my Moroccan Mint and knew I hadn’t made that tea again. It took a while before it clicked that I had made this tea. It smells quite sweet (almost makes me think of mint chocolate, though nothing about the taste is chocolately), and I suppose the flavor has a somewhat sweet finish. There is a lime note to the tea, but it is more subtle and a bit more subdued beneath the strong peppermint note of the tea. I’m not getting any cucumber, or any floral notes from the jasmine petals.

It’s a refreshing iced tea, but honestly doesn’t really taste all that different from a Moroccan Mint to me, other than having a slight lime note added. It’s a bit underwhelming overall.

Flavors: Lime, Mint, Peppermint, Sweet
