Its OK"I've dried my own mint from my garden before and this tea tasted just like that. After discovering that there was green tea in my cup, I realized that it did make a thicker mouth feel for this tea. If you brew a shorter time it's easier to taste the gunpowder green."

tozyteamorrocanmintTozy Tea's Moroccan Mint is definitely minty! It comes in a nice large pyramid sachet that allows the leaves to expand. I was under the impression that this tea had only mint in it, though I was a bit confused when I saw the dry leaves loosely rolled in an almost oolong-like shape. After trying it for the second time I went to look up more information and found that it has gunpowder green tea from China in it. I'm pretty sure the green tea leaves are rolled together with the mint leaves because it's difficult to tell which is which in the tea and usually gunpowder alone is rolled a lot tighter.

I brewed this tea the first time a little bit long, it turned bitter and I had to dilute it with more water but it still didn't really cure the bitter taste. The second brew was much better, I brewed at 175 F for 3 minutes. As I said before I honestly couldn't taste the gunpowder green tea at all, the mint flavor is very prominent in this tea and it's to be expected, mint is a very strong flavor. I've dried my own mint from my garden before and this tea tasted just like that. After discovering that there was green tea in my cup, I realized that it did make a thicker mouth feel for this tea. If you brew a shorter time it's easier to taste the gunpowder green.

I drank this tea a few times and was also able to get a second brew out of one bag, which turned out just as strong and minty. I went to this tea as a refresher, originally thinking it'd be great since I was thirsty and didn't think it had caffeine. Though there is caffeine in this cup from the green tea, it is still very refreshing and would be an easy addition to an outdoor summer party. As the cup cools, the mint flavor is less prominent but iced it becomes strong again.

Try this tea for an easy solution to a refreshing, lightly caffeinated cup.
