rishi-tea-maghreb-mint.jpgI know I've mentioned this in previous reviews, but I just want to say it again: I love mint tea! I've been drinking mint tea since kindergarten and it's my ultimate comfort tea (the best of the best so far is Adagio's Casablanca Twist, and to my horror, it's on backorder until July). That being said, I try new mint tea whenever I can, and I don't keep mediocre blends of it around.

This is the first tea I've had from Rishi and I'm pretty impressed. It has a clean, yet spicy scent, and if this is possible, it smells detoxifying, too.

I brew all of my mint tea strong, and I did the same with this blend. I'm not sure if the mint would come through as well if it weren't brewed strong, so if you're like me and want as much mint flavor as possible, don't be afraid to use a little extra and brew it for a little longer than package directions advise. In doing this, the mint really has a presence and isn't lost in the stronger spices of the tea.

Speaking of spices, there are several in this unique blend. The ones that really comes through, though, are fennel and licorice. The licorice is pleasant, and unlike other licorice teas I've had, there isn't a way-too-sweet yet pungent bite that overtakes any other flavor in the tea. It's fresh. If you don't normally like tea with licorice in it, I urge you to try this, it's probably not like what you've had before. Also detectable, but not as strong as the fennel and licorice, is the ginger. The black pepper is only noticeable to me in the after taste, but it gives a nice punch to the end of your sip. Clove seems to be the only spice that's not detectable in this blend. Too much clove can be bad, so that's fine by me.

On top of everything else, this is a green tea, so you're getting all the benefits of green tea, too. All the flavors blend perfectly together, and yet you still taste them individually. It makes your mouth feel fresh and clean, and considering it's ingredients, I imagine it'd be a good tummy soother as well.

This is good stuff! I'd recommend it to anyone that appreciates tea, regardless of their preferences.
