Green Tea, peppermint leaf, peppermint extract
When I opened the pouch of this tea, I was taken by surprise! The essence of mint in this tea is strong. Many Moroccan Mint teas out there are generally just green tea and peppermint leaf, but this blend also has the peppermint flavoring, which really amplifies the mint flavor and aroma.
If you love mint, this is the Moroccan Mint for you. The peppermint is exhilarating and leaves my mouth feeling fresh and clean. It is a very bright and crisp mint flavor.
But even though the mint is strong, it doesn’t overwhelm the green tea notes – which saves this tea from coming across as something that you might substitute for your mouthwash in the morning. The sweet hint of vegetative flavor from the green tea accents the herbaceous notes of the mint and create a delicious, restorative cup of tea.
I like this one served hot or iced. I especially enjoy it after a meal – the mint helps to soothe the stomach while also freshening the breath! (And it tastes yummy too!)
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!
