A refreshing blend of green tea and mint, this tea suggests cool Mediterranean breezes along a hot afternoon desert. Made with tightly rolled gunpowder green tea to ensure briskness.

Extra Info:

If you would like to make tea like the Moroccans do, then buy our pure gunpowder green tea follow these instructions.:

  • In a teapot, combine two teaspoons of tea-leaf with half a litre of boiled water. Allow it to steep for ten to fifteen minutes.
  • Without stirring, filter the mixture into a stainless steel pot, so that the tea leaves and coarse powder are removed.
  • Add 5 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Bring back up to boil over a medium heat. This important step in the preparation process allows the sugar to undergo hydrolysis, giving the tea its distinctive taste.
  • Pour over fresh mint leaves crushed in the glass.

Ingredients:

Gunpowder green tea | Organic Peppermint | Organic Spearmint

Origin:

Tea: China | Mints: United States

Tasting Notes:

Oh my gosh, pure bliss!   

This blend is simply delicious! It reminds me of Tazo Zen green tea blend (which I also really like). There is a nice balance of both the green tea and peppermint. I’m usually not a huge fan of peppermint (toothpaste, gum, etc) but this is so well done I love the minty aftertaste it has. Well… maybe not “aftertaste” but “lingering essence” maybe? Aftertaste seems a negative connotation. No silly artificial flavorings added or spicy stuff.
