type: green

origin: india

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

An interesting twist on classic Moroccan Mint tea, which traditionally combines Gunpowder green tea from China with fresh mint. We kept the latter, and replaced the smoky notes of Gunpowder with the muscatel highlights of a Darjeeling from India. The result is very a refreshing cup, with bold, cool minty notes, smooth and relaxing texture and flavor. Very intriguing cup. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes

      Light and flavorful tea. The spring darjeeling takes the edge off the peppermint, and the mint nicely covers the mineral and vegetal notes of the green tea. There is no bitterness or astringency. I steeped at 180°F x 2 minutes, and sweetened with 1/2 tsp raw honey. Resteeps well. A delightful cup!

      I love anything mint. Especially mint teas. I loved that this was a caffeinated tea as well. I didn’t feel the need to add sweeteners to this tea

      Excellent minty tea, though it's been renamed to Casablanca Mint I believe. Either way, great combination of green, mint.

      This tea is really far too minty for my taste. I couldn't really determine any other flavors since the mint was too overwhelming. I'm giving it 2.5 stars since it's not actually revolting like some other things I've tried (like rooibos) and mint lovers will surely enjoy this. :)

      Oh this is delicious. The mint pairs perfectly with the base tea, resulting in a mellower Moroccan mint tea.

      When I tried this blend I was hit with an overwhelming menthol punch from the peppermint. It completely drowned out any hint of darjeeling that may have been present, leaving it tasting more like straight up peppermint tea than would even make sense.

      I think this is a good tea for people who are not big fans of mint. The mint is light enough that it adds to the flavor of the tea instead of overwhelming it.

      Very refreshing mint tea. The darjeeling base gives it a nice rounded, full and rich taste. The peppermint tastes fresh and jaunty with a nice aroma. Great blend!

      Almost too minty, but still very enjoyable. I would order it again.

      I really like this tea. As is true with most gunpoweder teas, you need to be careful not to steep it too long but its delicious, bright and refreshing

      Refreshingly minty and balanced, this tea makes a beautiful cup of mint tea. Perfect with a little sweetener (honey or sugar)

      There was a lot of mint in my blend. I'm not usually a fan of green teas but this one has a certain charm to it. I added a little honey and now I'm golden
