Thumbs up!"This is a fantastic twist on a classic blend, and something that can be appreciated by hojicha lovers and non-lovers alike. The overall flavor is clean and refreshing, starting out with powerful minty notes but also offering a muted toasted flavor. "

teaspotgreenroastedmintWhen I think of green tea and mint, Moroccan Mint comes to mind. I have been on a green tea and mint kick lately, with many blends being Moroccan mint-esque blends. The Tea Spot, however, offers a Green Toasted Mint, which is a blend of peppermint leaves and Hojicha, roasted Japanese green tea. Hojicha seems to be the black sheep of the Green Tea Family, but it is a personal favorite of mine. So naturally I was pretty stoked to try this new twist on a green tea and mint blend. To prepare this tea, it is necessary to really mix the leaves well, because due to the small size of the peppermint leaves and the larger size of the hojicha leaves, there is some separation among the two leaf types. This is a fantastic twist on a classic blend, and something that can be appreciated by hojicha lovers and non-lovers alike. The peppermint used is crisp and strong, and tends to overpower the weaker flavor of the hojicha leaves. The overall flavor is clean and refreshing, starting out with powerful minty notes but also offering a muted toasted flavor. I had most of my sample as a hot beverage, but thanks to the peppermint leaves, the tea also is surprisingly refreshing as an iced tea. In all, I think the combination of hojicha and peppermint is a mix that works really well, and after having tasted it, I wonder why I haven't stumbled upon this blend earlier. I will add this to my growing list of must-order teas, and would recommend that you do the same.
