Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Zhena’s Gypsy Tea
One of our tastiest and most popular infusions blends the ancient principles of Ayurveda and Aromatherapy to promote relaxation, focus and smooth digestive energy. With its heady aroma, this soft steep is flavorful, distinctive and calming. Peppermint is soothing to the digestive system and promotes focus and clear thinking. Stevia leaves from Paraguay, awaken the senses and please the palate.
Ingredients: Organicly grown Ceylon Green tea, organic Egyptian peppermint & organic South American Stevia leaf create a slightly sweet cup with just the right balance of tannin and mint. Traditionally drunk with sugar on the hottest days of the year in Morocco in gold lined glass tea cups.
Tonight, I am revisiting an old friend! I have enjoyed this tea previously, and have even written a review about it previously.
This tea tastes very fresh and clean without being too overwhelmingly minty. That is to say, that I enjoy mint, but sometimes too much mint in the teacup can be a bit… well, too much for me. Fortunately, this cup has a nice balance of flavor: mint with a pleasantly sweet green tea flavor.
Because of its somewhat mellow character, this makes a very refreshingly crisp iced tea as well as a restorative hot tea. It has a slightly sweet flavor to it already, so you needn’t add any sweetener. However, I do recommend trying a thin slice of lemon with this tea. Yum!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
