Moroccan Mint from Mhai Diva

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  Mhai Diva

Product Description:

Green Tea, peppermint leaf, peppermint extract

Taster’s Review:

When I opened the pouch of this tea, I was taken by surprise!  The essence of mint in this tea is strong.  Many Moroccan Mint teas out there are generally just green tea and peppermint leaf, but this blend also has the peppermint flavoring, which really amplifies the mint flavor and aroma.

If you love mint, this is the Moroccan Mint for you.  The peppermint is exhilarating and leaves my mouth feeling fresh and clean.  It is a very bright and crisp mint flavor.

But even though the mint is strong, it doesn’t overwhelm the green tea notes – which saves this tea from coming across as something that you might substitute for your mouthwash in the morning.  The sweet hint of vegetative flavor from the green tea accents the herbaceous notes of the mint and create a delicious, restorative cup of tea.

I like this one served hot or iced.  I especially enjoy it after a meal – the mint helps to soothe the stomach while also freshening the breath!  (And it tastes yummy too!)

Sensitive Sencha from Mhaidiva

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  Mhaidiva

About Mhaidiva:

Mhaidiva, the Lady of Tea, is the personification of everything that makes life worth living. She is the muse giving everyone who drinks her tea the gift of beauty, health, peace, harmony and creative thinking. She speaks to you in haiku, seventeen syllable poems written in three lines of 5-7-5. She shares philosophy, or lessons of life, expressed in one breath. She uses images of tea, evoking a mysterious solitude and meditative presence with romantic images of austere beauty.

Taster’s Review:

The aroma of this Sencha is quite grassy, like the air just after the lawn has been cut.  It smells fresh and green.  And this fragrance tells of the flavor of the cup – this is one of the grassier-tasting Sencha teas that I’ve tasted.

But that isn’t a bad thing.  In fact, this tea – to me – epitomizes the very base of green tea flavor.  It is light.  It is sweet.  It is crisp.  It is vegetative.  And it is good.  The sip starts with an introduction of the vegetal notes with a pleasant undertone of sweetness, and ends with a lightly drying astringency.

This Sencha is one of those teas that works well as either a hot or iced tea.  Hot – it needs nothing added.  It is pleasantly sweet and flavorful.  Iced – try adding a thin slice of your favorite citrus fruit.  It is quite refreshing without anything added, of course, but I found that the citrus fruit helps to bring out some of the distant fruit tones that are inherent in this tea.

This is one I’d recommend to the green tea enthusiasts out there who are looking for something pure and clean tasting, but with the convenience of a teabag.  This tea is a perfect departure from the typical “office teabag” while keeping things simple and convenient.  It’s a good one.

Taster’s Review:

In her review of this tea, TeaEqualsBliss aka Jennifer states that this doesn’t taste like a bagged tea.  And I must concur … this is a very full-flavored, robust Earl Grey and if I hadn’t brewed it myself, I wouldn’t have guessed it was a bagged tea.

The black tea is brisk and energizing.  It has a remarkably smooth flavor without bitterness and very little astringency.  There is a hint of sweetness to the black tea – slightly caramel-ish.  This is a black tea that would be delicious on its own, made even tastier with the addition of the flavor of the bergamot orange.

The bergamot is citrus-y and lightly floral.  It doesn’t taste overly floral or perfume-y, just enough of a flowery note to add dimension to the overall cup.  The flavor is bright and slightly sweet with a nice tangy finish.

I can’t get over the fact that this is a bagged tea.  This is a bagged tea that will win over the loose leaf purists out there!  Yes it’s that good!

Majestic Darjeeling from mhai diva

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: mhai diva

Product Description:

There isn’t much for product description on their website about this individual tea but here is some general info about their company…

Mhaidiva Tea

In general: the highest grown tea offers the best quality. Mhaidiva is premium quality tea from the highlands of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). In particular Nuwara-Eliya, known as the ‘champagne’ area of original Ceylon tea.
After plucking, the green tea leaves of Mhaidiva are immediately processed and freshly packed in Sri Lanka. We only pluck the tea leaf and bud. The green tea leaves are then dried and smoothly rolled (not cut) to achieve our premium quality tea. Our tea has a bright colour and infuses perfectly every time.
The result: a refined tea with great flavour and lovely after taste.

We all need a little more of that in our lives, don’t we?
