After thinking my taste buds were way off for some reason, I didn’t want to waste any more good tea on them. But I think now that I’ve had a nap, it’s better. I made this iced to go with lunch. Apparently I just had excellent timing in going to get my mail because all of a sudden there’s thunder. Self high-five!

I really wish this came in loose leaf, because I love it so so much. Granted, it’s really good for a sachet, so it’s not that awful. I don’t think beyond that I have anything new to say. But this is still one of my favorite quick iced teas.

Wasn’t sure what to expect from this. I was a little surprised at the scent — I was expecting something citrusy with a hint of mint, but it smells like Moroccan mint.

Hot, that’s what it tastes like. The mint is very strong, and you can taste the green tea (barely) under it, but the rum and lime are not coming through very much at all. It’s pretty light, but still tasty. But I’m not sure it stacks up against other minty greens — it’s good, but not amazing or standout.

So I did the freezer trick — stuck the remainder in a cup in the freezer, to try it “iced” once it was cold. I can taste the rum now (and it’s not awesome), but not the mint or the lime. I’ll chalk some of that up to not having a high enough tea to water ratio for the iced version, but I’m still not impressed. And I’m not sure I want it stronger, to be honest.

Verdict: Hot, it’s a nice cup but nothing special. Cold, ick.

Yet another tea sample from MandyB. Thanks Mandy! The aroma of this is more of a green tea with mint flavoring. The coloring is very close to that in the photo. The overall taste is fairly good. I can taste the Peppermint first with a hint of rum which gives it a distinct taste. I think I can even the lime but am not sure about the lemon…unless it’s a lemon/lime combo I am getting. Regardless it’s a creative blend in a bag and I think I like it.

One of my favorites. The flavors of mint lime and rum are easily tasted in each cup. An all year tea for me, it is mellow but full flavored.

This is good! Lots of mint with a hint of lemon/lime. Rum flavor is really light but adds a little extra something to this tea.

Tastes like a basic, nice mint tea. Something you might reach for to settle your stomach. Tried it cold over ice – it was very bitter. I steeped 4 bags in 2 cups of hot water for 3 minutes, then mixed with 2 cups of cold water and chilled it overnight. The cold bitter minty water didn’t do it for me. Tasted 10.2018

My second cup of this, and my opinion holds. This is nice. It is, in fact, nicer than I expected it to be, and it suits today. In my part of the world its going to be in the lower 90’s. Gah. Its too early for this summer weather, thats for sure. Blerh.
Off I go, to get ready for work on this hot day.


OMG, As much as I’m tired of our endless winter, I CAN’T STAND THAT KIND OF HEAT!!

I found this tea lacking in any discernible lime/mojito flavor. All I could taste was mint. Which is a real shame, because I was hoping for something very refreshing and limey.

Cup #2…this tea is growing on me. It might be my new go-to tea when I’m sick.

This was a polite little green tea with the slightest hint of mint.
