I’ve had plenty of mint tea, just mostly peppermint or just a generic mint with peppermint and spearmint leaves. Moroccan mint tea sounded very fancy, and I was super excited to try it. I learned that this tea is gunpowder green tea and spearmint tea, so like many other mint teas it isn’t caffeine free.
The first thing I noticed was how mild the mint flavor is. Don’t get me wrong, you can taste the mint but it is a very mild almost sweet flavor. I really like it. It doesn’t have that sharp, almost bitter flavor that some mint teas have.
Since it is spring, and along with all the beauty of flowers blooming come allergies, I found this to be very soothing on my stuffy nose. I also enjoyed the little energy boost from the green tea because allergies can sometimes make me feel a little drowsy. This was a delicious and very refreshing way to start my day. I feel like mint tea is such a great tea to have first thing in the morning as it gently wakes up all your senses. It kind of calmly welcomes you to your day.
My first experience with mint tea was years ago when I was fighting my coffee addiction, and I discovered mint yerba mate. I remember feeling like it was such a nice, gentle way to wake up as opposed to the aggressive kick you get from coffee. It really helped me through some rough times, and this Moroccan mint tea reminded me of that revelation. I really enjoyed this, and I think anyone who loves mint tea would love it as well!
