zhenamojitomintI was introduced to the wonderful world of mojitos a few years ago during a trip to Miami.  While the ingredient list is simple, the variation and amount of ingredients used to make a mojito can vary quite a bit from place to place.  Sometimes mint is the main component, other times it may be the lime or the rum.  It’s tough to beat a well-balanced mojito and it is now my mixed drink of choice, second only to the lime margarita.  Needless to say, when I saw the tea version of this drink I was excited to give it a try.

Mojito Mint is a bagged variety from Zhena’s Gypsy Tea.  Upon opening my sample, the first scent to greet me was that of mint and it was very difficult to isolate the other ingredients.  I was a bit worried that the mint would overpower this blend.  I prepared my cup using water that was brought to a boil and allowed to cool for a few minutes.  My three-minute steep produced a mint-heavy brew that was followed by a lemon flavor.  This surprised me a bit as I was expecting lime.  Sadly, I wasn’t really able to detect the rum flavor and overall, this tea reminded me of an herbal due to the overpowering mint.  I wouldn’t recommend this for someone looking for the tea version of a mojito, but if you enjoy a strong mint flavor you will like this tea.
