Taster’s Review:

What a delightful Moroccan Mint blend!

Typically, a Moroccan Mint is a gunpowder green tea and dried mint leaves combination.  This particular Moroccan Mint is gunpowder green and spearmint leaves.  It seems like such a simple combination, which is why it really amazes me how some Moroccan Mint blends really stand out above others that I’ve tried.

I mean, you’d think they’d all taste pretty much the same.  But this one – somehow – manages to really stand out!  Maybe it’s the freshness of the ingredients.  Maybe it’s just expertly blended to have just the right ratio of green tea to mint leaves.  I don’t know exactly how Tiger Spring Tea has managed to accomplish this, but, I’m really glad that I have this opportunity to try it and have it impress me so!

I know I’ve mentioned this more than once before, but typically, I prefer peppermint to spearmint, but, I’m finding that I really like the spearmint in this Moroccan Mint.  It tastes crisp and cool, and even has a slight spiciness to it that I find quite intriguing.

The gunpowder green tea is smooth and buttery, providing a very pleasing base for the spearmint to deliver its zingy taste.  The green tea is lightly vegetative, sweet and has a soft, silky mouthfeel that is an interesting contrast to the invigoratingly fresh taste of the mint.

I brewed my first cup of this and served it hot, and found it to be vibrant tasting as well as quite soothing, especially after my spicy meal!  I enjoyed it so much that I decided I wanted a full pitcher of this chilled for the following day’s iced tea sipping, so I brewed a pitcher (and I infused the leaves three times!) and found that the iced tea was also exceptional.  The leaves stood up to the multiple infusions without losing their flavor, and the iced tea was thirst-quenching.

This one is a winner!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
