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!

Every once in a while, you really can’t escape the fact that a tea bag is more convenient. Yes, I know. The flavors sometimes are not the strongest and the best. But sometimes you come across one that actually works for you. This happened with me the other day.
I have a very fast paced deadline oriented job. From the hours of 8-5, I’m typically glued to my computer and trying to multi-task with the best of them. Time Management is critical in my position, but there are times where I can’t even keep up. I found myself running late for a meeting so I quickly prepped my water up, threw this tea bag in, and my meeting was underway.
And I have to say, for being a bagged tea, this ditty was quite delightful! I couldn’t stop drinking this tea. I am a huge green tea fan and love my mint flavors, so I knew going in I would probably like this tea. What I didn’t expect was that after I had infused the leaves a few times, I still was wanting more.
The Tea Can Company’s take on this Moroccan Mint was pretty on point. A gorgeous play on mint flavors with an almost roasted like green tea with hints of a vegetal finish. Each sip was as delicious as the one before, even when the cuppa began to cool.
99% of the tea I drink is loose leaf. Besides the obvious issues with bagged teas, I have found that I love the act of brewing/steeping loose leaf tea. But sometimes in the mad world I work in, I don’t have those spare moments to brew up a pot. This is where this tea hit home for me.
I’ve tried a few of The Tea Can Company’s offerings and so far I’ve been pretty happy with them. So if you are in the market for a solid bagged tea, I’d suggest checking them out. But something to consider, this tea does seem to be a bit on the pricey side. A 10 tea sachet tin canister is $10 but they do offer a mini tin for $4, allowing you a chance to check out the tea before diving into a larger order. I was able to steep the tea a few times over. Just my final thought on this lovely version of a classic blend!
