Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Chad’s Chai & Tea
The Moroccans liked to blend green tea with mint, and we couldn’t agree more wholeheartedly! Refreshing and calming, Green Peace is an inspired blend of extraordinary green tea and spearmint leaf. It can be enjoyed by itself or with food, and simply must be tried iced!
I tried this before knowing anything about it except for its name. I could smell the mint, although it was not overwhelming. When I tasted it, I could taste the mint, but, it didn’t taste like a typical “Moroccan Mint” to me… it tasted like there was something a little different.
And there is! Where many mint green teas settle for either peppermint or spearmint, Chad’s Chai & Tea chose to use both mints to create a real depth of flavor. But even with two different types of mint, the mint flavor is not overwhelming here, and I am able to taste the Chinese green tea.
Although the website for Chad’s Chai & Tea does not specify what type of Chinese green tea is used for this blend, it looks like a gunpowder green tea. The tea has a light, creamy butter taste in the background which when combined with the minty flavors, comes across as a very creamy mint taste. Delicious!
This tea tastes invigorating, but there is a certain soothing property to it as well. I feel more relaxed as I continue to sip it.
With mint teas, sometimes they are just too MINTY… but, this one is just right. A nice balance between green tea and mint flavors, and I like the blending of the two types of mint. A very pleasant mint green tea!
