Keep on rockin’ with Moroccan! Mint, that is! Try this Chinese Gunpowder variety of long-leaf green tea, hand-rolled to form tiny pellets and blended with fragrant Moroccan Mint leaves. When steeped, the tea leaves unfurl, releasing their delicate flavor which, combined with the mint, makes for a uniquely refreshing cup every time! It’s lovely iced, too!

I love many different types of flavored teas, and I wouldn’t even say that Moroccan Mint is my favorite, but I will say this, I’d be hard-pressed to find a tea that is more refreshing than a Moroccan Mint! The fresh, cool taste of mint combined with the delicate, sweet flavor of a high-quality Chinese gunpowder green tea leaves my palate feeling clean and refreshed while invigorating me from within.
This Moroccan Mint from the Boston Tea Company is splendid! It has the flavor I’ve come to expect from a top-notch Moroccan Mint tea. It’s minty, but not overpoweringly so. It’s sweet and tastes fresh and zesty, and it’s cooling even when served hot (which is how I’m sipping it now).
Before steeping, I poured some of the leaves into my palm, just to get a good look at it. I could see the tiny pellets of the gunpowder tea tossed amongst the bits of mint leaves. I liked that while the mint leaves were broken to uniform size, they were not pulverized into dust and the pellets appeared to be pretty uniform in size and shape too. And – no surprise! – it smelled minty fresh.
While this is delicious hot, it is equally as nice served iced and as I said at the start of this review, it’s easily one of the most refreshing teas out there – something that you’ll want to keep stocked up on as these hot summer days seem to go on and on! This is great for cold-brewing too!
