rishi-tea-maghreb-mint.jpgThe ingredients for Rishi's Maghreb Mint include Organic cardamom, Organic Fair Trade Certifiedâ„¢ peppermint, Organic ginger, Organic Fair Trade Certifiedâ„¢ green tea, Organic licorice root, Organic fennel, Organic clove, Organic black pepper. Lately, I have really come to appreciate and enjoy a really good mint tea. That being said, I'm actually glad I didn't read the ingredients list for this one prior to sampling it. That way, I didn't go in with any preconceived notion of it being some sort of spicey mint tea which I'm not sure would have sounded very interesting to me. I like spicey chai teas also, but normally drink them with milk and the idea of milk in a mint tea doesn't seem so appealing to me. Taking my first whiff of the dry leaves did nothing to alter my assumption that I was about to enjoy a good cup of mint tea. I didn't really notice an aroma of any of the other spices. After a two minute infusion, I took my first sip and was quite pleased with the combination of sweetness and mint. After reviewing the ingredients list, I'm pretty sure that the licorice root was the source of the sweetness. The other spices are quite muted and delicately blended, which works wonderfully with the mint and licorice. While both mint and licorice are said to aid in digestion, with the addition of ginger which is said to do the same, I think this would wonderfully as an after dinner tea. I also tried this as an iced tea and it was very refreshing, a tea that will be very nice to have around during the long, hot days of summer.
