Thumbs up!"This delivers a wonderfully strong mint flavor, but I personally would have enjoyed a bit more green tea flavor in the mix. "

tozyteamorrocanmintThere is a good degree of variability in the world of Moroccan Mint tea, which I first came to learn as Gunpowder green tea mixed with spearmint leaves and ample amounts of sugar. Over the years, though, I have seen variation on this, including the type of green tea used and the type(s) of mint included Tozy Tea's take on this tea is a quality sachet full of gunpowder green tea and peppermint leaves. I cut open the sachet to get a better look at the contents and saw some nice-looking gunpowder, but not much peppermint. I brewed the tea in 185-degree water and steeped the blend for about three minutes. The tea that is produced is a dark-straw color with an appreciable level of opacity. Despite the tea seeming to consist overwhelmingly of green tea leaves, the flavor is by far dominated by mint. The peppermint flavor is clean and strong, leaving a fresh feeling in my mouth. There is no denying that a high-quality mint was used for this blend. If I had sampled this tea blindly, I might have thought this was a simple peppermint herbal tea, as the green tea's contribution is really subtle. I think the green flavor does come through just a bit more when the tea is iced, but still, it is a very gentle component. I found this tea highly enjoyable both iced and hot, although it was not exactly what I was expecting for a Moroccan Mint tea. This delivers a wonderfully strong mint flavor, but I personally would have enjoyed a bit more green tea flavor in the mix.
