Thumbs up!"Very well-blended... the unusual addition of lemongrass adds a nice finishing bite to this rather unique mint-tea."

stash-moroccan-mint.jpgMint-teas are, along with Earl Greys, one of my most favorite types of tea. They are refreshing, exotic, soothing and invigorating all at once - or at least the good ones are.

Stash's Moroccan Mint Green Tea is a mix of spearmint, peppermint and - a nice touch - lemongrass. The latter ingredient provides a bit of spice and bite that many other mint teas lack. Altogether I found this to be an excellent blend, though just a tad bit heavy on the spearmint for my tastes.

Long-time readers of Teaviews may remember that one of my highest-rated teas ever was Adagio's own mint-green tea, which they call Casablanca Twist. How do the two compare? Well, I think head-to-head Casablanca Twist is still the superior tea (though darn it, I've run out of my own supply and wasn't able to do a proper comparative tasting of each side by side).

Nevertheless, this blend comes in at a strong second-place, and for those who are budget-conscious, Stash's Moroccan Mint is quite a bit cheaper than Adagio's Casablanca Twist. (3.5oz for $6.75, vs. 3oz for $10 at Adagio).

    Have you tried the bagged version? I would be interested to hear your thoughts on how the two compare.

    A very nice mint/green combo. More mint than Tazo Zen. I only find the bag here, and as with Tazo Zen, I often combine a regular bag of green tea with this to make a larger pot. Just enough mint to really carry over well in tandem.

    I very much enjoyed this tea (my staple) until about 8 months ago when their recipe seemed to have changed. I no longer find it drinkable…
