Republic of Tea Moroccan Mint Green Tea Review

A Splendid Mix of Green Tea & Peppermint!

Summary : This is simply a perfect mix of green tea and peppermint. A superb way to get your healthy antioxidants (from the green tea), with no worries about the "grassy taste" found in some green teas. And the peppermint flavor in this tea is delicious.

Review : Green tea. Gotta love it. Nice and healthy...loaded with antioxidants. Yet, like all things in life, if you drink the same thing over and over and over again...the tea just becomes boring. And so it is that I've fallen in love with green teas that have various things infused into them. And being a "mint-a-holic," I could absolutely not resist the temptation to try out the Moroccan Mint Green Tea from the Republic of tea, which is a mix of green tea and peppermint!

The moroccan mint green tea from the Republic of Tea contains the following ingredients : formosa gunpowder green tea leaves blended with peppermint.

Here is how the Republic of Tea describes this tea : "Cool and refreshing, this brew is traditionally sipped from glass teacups with an over-indulgence of sugar. A blend of peppermint leaves and fragrant Gunpowder green tea."

Any doubts that you are about to try a peppermint tea will be dashed the minute you open up the tea bag. The aroma of this tea is REALLY powerful, nearly as strong as a pure herbal peppermint tea is. And of course, if you are search of peppermint, that is a very, very good thing.

As this tea uses formosa gunpowder green tea leaves, the tea leaves themselves aren't long like grass. Instead, the leaves are small pellets. So don't be too shocked by how the tea leaves look when you scoop them out.

Happily, this tea has a flavor to match the powerful aroma of the tea. The tea tastes like, well, you guessed it...peppermint! What else? Actually, the flavor of the tea doesn't quite compare to a full blown herbal peppermint tea. If "true peppermint" is what you seek, you are best off to find it in a pure herbal peppermint tea.

Instead, what this tea does is nicely combine the lovely flavor of peppermint with the enjoyable and somewhat subtle flavor of gunpowder green tea. The result is a splendid tea that tastes primarily of peppermint but still has a "tiny hint" of green tea flavor to it.

Overall, this is just simply a wonderful tea. It has an excellent peppermint flavor and nicely combines it with the light and subtle flavor of gunpowder green tea...essentially giving you your cake (peppermint) and allowing you to eat it too (antioxidants found in green tea.) A very happy combination indeed.

Recommendation : Absolutely. This is a perfect mix of green tea and peppermint! You get all the health benefits of the green tea, with the lovely taste of peppermint. Don't like green tea? Well...try this one! It's the perfect tea to be introduced to green tea!
