Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Earthbound Tea
Green tea, freshly picked peppermint, and a soothing minty taste. What more do you need?
I have tasted many “Moroccan Mint” teas, but like with Earl Grey teas, just because they have the same name, that doesn’t mean they taste the same. Some are mintier than others, and some are so minty that you think you’re sipping on mouthwash instead of tea. Some have so little mint flavor that you might be left wondering if someone mislabeled the package.
But this Moroccan Mint from Earthbound Tea is just right. It offers a nice balance of both mint and green tea flavor. Earthbound Tea does not indicate what type of green tea is used in this blend, but based upon the appearance and flavor of the tea I would guess it is a gunpowder green. It has a lightly sweet flavor with notes of a buttery/toasted nut flavor in the background, which gives a nice contrast to the crisp, vibrant flavor of peppermint.
The two ingredients – peppermint and green tea – are pretty evenly matched. The peppermint does not overwhelm the delightful flavors of the green tea, which means a clean, minty taste without tasting like a mouthful of toothpaste. It has a uplifting flavor – just right for that boost that we all seem to need at mid-day!
