teafrogAsian Mint is an exclusive blend offered by TeaFrog. This tea is their creative take on the standard Moroccan Mint fare, and incorporates Gunpowder green tea, Ceylon tea, and peppermint. Because this contains both black and green tea, the tea must be prepared by the standards of the more temperature-sensitive green tea. I was surprised to see how faint the mint was in this blend; as a mint lover, I love a nice strong peppermint tea. The brewed tea has smoky, malty, and minty notes, with the strength of each flavor in that same order. I usually shy away from overly smoky gunpowder tea, so I found this blend to be a bit too harsh. As with the faint mint notes in the aroma, I was hoping for a stronger contribution of the mint. I have now reviewed several TeaFrog offerings and this is probably my least favorite, but I still would classify it as a decent blend. The mix of black, green, and herbal tea is appealing, it's just that the gunpowder was a bit too smoky for me. I think I would have really enjoyed this tea if a subtler green tea was used. Still, this is a tea that I would recommend to others because I do think many would enjoy this uncommon blend. At a price of $6.50 for 3.5oz, this is a great bargain too.
