casablanca-twist-adagio.jpgAfter my somewhat harrowing experience with Harney & Son's Peppermint Herbal Tea (it smelled great and tasted awful), I was pretty enthused to try Adagio's Casablanca Twist Green Tea. I bought it for two reasons. First, I really do enjoy a refreshing and soothing mint tea, particularly at night. Second, it was Adagio's highest rated green tea (tied with Apricot at 4.6/5). I played it safe and got the $3 sampler tin.

To paraphrase a movie, "We're going to need a bigger tin."

This stuff is great! Smells wonderful out of the tin, but most importantly, tastes wonderful in your cup. The peppermint really shines through as the dominant flavor, but its not so overpowering as to be medicinal, as can sometimes be the case. The green tea flavor is muted but still there, and there's just the slightest after-aroma of something earthy which I can't quite place. Altogether its a magnificent blend, one of the best mint teas I've had, hands down.

Adagio says the blend is based on Moroccan Mint, but they used first flush Darjeeling tea instead of Gunpowder, for a "fresher, smoother" taste. It definitely worked for me. I'll definitely be ordering larger bag of Casablanca Twist. The full pound bag is a bit pricey at $39.00 US, but heck, I've never been one to shy away from a magnificent tea just because of price.

I've got my priorities, after all.

Highly recommended.

    Another good one! I have tried it only once before but made a note to buy it again. Reminds me of Morocco, not that I’ve ever been there. 😉

    I completely agree with your review. I ordered some samples from Adagio because of all the rave reviews of Jasmine #12. I was disappointed with that one, but very pleasantly surprised with Casablanca Twist. A very nice taste that was full of mint without being overpowering.

    This is my alltime favorite mint tea. I have to drink this everyday. It is the perfect combination of green and mint with just a bit of sweetness and is extremely smooth. It’s expensive, but worth every penny for me.
