teatable-moroccan-mint.jpgFor my first foray into gunpowder teas, I seem to have picked a rather mundane version. The mint flavor in this tea was both overwhelming and underwhelming at the same time. It was overwhelming in that it trumped the more subtle green tea flavor and in fact underwhelming in that the flavor failed to truly make an interesting impression. No matter the temperature, the steep time or the infusion this tea just seemed mediocre.

Now, I'm not prejudiced against mint tea, but at the same time I've never really been a huge fan of it. Suffice it to say Moroccan Mint didn't do much to change that opinion. The flavor of this tea reminded me more of cheap-bagged teas that someone offers you after a meal and has been sitting there for months if not years.

Now for aroma, the tea was light and rather unassuming. It was the kind of aroma that suggested that something may be underneath but also left it up to the imagination. Now the flavor was a subtle minty flavor almost as though this were an herbal tea. This may be good for those tea drinkers who can't stomach the flavor of green tea but not for a green tea lover like myself.

Now, while I'm still dedicated to green tea I'm just not sure which variable caused such an underwhelming cup. Was it the mint? Or was it the gunpowder green? I'll tend to think at this point that mint is not the right mixer with green leaves. But if you're partial to herbal tea but want the antioxidants, you may want to give this one a try.
