This Tea Time Tuesday post is days late; I’m sorry! But here it is without further ado…
Moroccan Mint Green Tea is a fairly low priced green tea offered by Teavana. Upon opening the package, it definitely smells minty with a nice grassy green tea smell. The smells dissipate during the brewing and the brewed tea doesn’t taste as strong as the leaves initially smell.
The taste is typical of a smooth green tea. The mint is very apparent. It’s not a sweet mint flavor, so if you want it sweet you’ll definitely need to add your own sweetener. I prefer this flavor hot over cold, though it can be served both ways. (For iced mint green tea I prefer their Jade Citrus Mint, but that’s another post.)
This flavor is one of the least expensive of Teavana’s green teas. That being said, it is a no-nonsense minty green tea. The ingredients are “Green tea and spearmint leaves”. No extra flavors, no extra frills. Not a bad tea for those on a budget.
Teavana sells Moroccan Mint Green Tea for:
2 oz $4.98 1/4 lb $9.96 8 oz $19.92
The website describes the tea:
” This exciting and refreshing blend of Chinese gunpowder green tea and Moroccan spearmint mingle together with every refined and pleasing sip. “
