The Moroccans liked to blend green tea with mint, and we couldn’t agree more wholeheartedly! Refreshing and calming, Green Peace is an inspired blend of extraordinary green tea and spearmint leaf. It can be enjoyed by itself or with food, and simply must be tried iced!
I tried this before knowing anything about it except for its name. I could smell the mint, although it was not overwhelming. When I tasted it, I could taste the mint, but, it didn’t taste like a typical “Moroccan Mint” to me… it tasted like there was something a little different.
And there is! Where many mint green teas settle for either peppermint or spearmint, Chad’s Chai & Tea chose to use both mints to create a real depth of flavor. But even with two different types of mint, the mint flavor is not overwhelming here, and I am able to taste the Chinese green tea.
Although the website for Chad’s Chai & Tea does not specify what type of Chinese green tea is used for this blend, it looks like a gunpowder green tea. The tea has a light, creamy butter taste in the background which when combined with the minty flavors, comes across as a very creamy mint taste. Delicious!
This tea tastes invigorating, but there is a certain soothing property to it as well. I feel more relaxed as I continue to sip it.
With mint teas, sometimes they are just too MINTY… but, this one is just right. A nice balance between green tea and mint flavors, and I like the blending of the two types of mint. A very pleasant mint green tea!

The Irish are known to say that tea should be strong enough to stand you spoon up in it. This Irish breakfast tea is indisputably bold, yet lively with fun flowery undertones. And it will take all the milk and sugar you can give it!
Ingredients: Full leaf Black Tea from India and China.
Let’s just say – after tasting Finnigan’s Wake-Up…Finnigan can wake me up any day! This is a nice, solid black tea! Perfect for that first cup!
This Irish Breakfast Tea is wonderful! It has a great flavor. It’s very tasty. It’s bold and full and if I really try can pick out the slightest bit of floral taste hiding underneath.
The Product Description from the Company talks a lot about the traditional additives many Irish Tea Lovers may add to their cuppa but I drink ALL of my teas plain and still think this is a great cup!
I do have a lot of Irish in my background but also have a lot of Norwegian as well as some English, French, and German so let’s just say I am ‘well rounded’ with my likings for various morning and breakfast teas. Or at least I like to think I am. There are several I like and this is now added to my list of morning or breakfast teas.
Finnigan is my friend!
