From 52teas

This is a VIT created for a couple of 52Teas Ambassadors – they wanted a green tea blend that was a little bit sweet, a little bit minty and a little bit spicy – and they wanted to call it RandyCandy!

Think of it as a unique twist on a Moroccan Mint tea. I started with three organic Chinese teas: Gunpowder, Chun Mee and Sencha. Then I added peppermint leaves, crushed black peppercorns, aleppo pepper and smoked chili pepper. Then I added a little bit of Tulsi (I used a blend of green, purple and wild Tulsi) to accent the minty notes and enhance the depth of spice. Finally, I tossed in some amaranth petals to add a little bit of eye appeal to the blend.

The result is – as I eluded to above – a unique twist on the classic Moroccan Mint tea. The green tea is smooth and sweet. The peppermint has an exhilarating flavor and brings a cooling note to the cup while the heat from the peppercorns and peppers is warm – but not spicy or hot. I think “Zingy” would be a better word to describe the flavor.

It’s refreshingly different!

ingredients: green teas, green tulsi, purple tulsi, wild leaf tulsi, peppermint, aleppo peppers, smoked chili peppers, crushed peppercorns, amaranth petals and natural flavors. (most ingredients are organic except the aleppo peppers and the amaranth petals.)

This is a very odd tea – Mint, Tulsi and peppers.
The two most prominent flavors are Mint and tulsi, I cannot find the flavor or heat from the pepper at all.

It is an enjoyable cup of tea, the mint isn’t too over powering. However, I am not a fan of the peppermint source that 52teas uses. I find it very astringent and sharp. I had the same issue with Graveyard mist. The actual source mint is not the best.

The cup is enjoyable, an odd mix of flavors, but floral tulsi mint is quite pleasant!

I’m currently taste testing this tea which is a VIT blend that I created from one of our 52Teas Ambassadors. They wanted a tea named after them and they wanted a green tea that was both sweet and lightly spicy with strong minty notes.

I think I captured it with these ingredients. The green tea is a soft buttery flavor and the tulsi adds a hint of mint and notes of basil, pepper and a gentle cinnamon-like flavor. The aleppo peppers are warm and the heat builds gradually. It’s spicy, but not HOT. It is pleasantly spicy.

The minty notes come through nicely and I like the way they contrast with the warmer spice notes. It’s cool and crisp but also zesty and warm. This is my first time working with Tulsi and I’m really pleased with the result.
