This tea is considerably less minty than other Moroccan mint teas I’ve had in the past. The trade-off is the wider variety of spices in the blend that lend it a bit more nuance and depth of flavor. I can taste some licorice and fennel in this tea that other Moroccan mints don’t have. If you’re looking for depth of flavor, this is the Moroccan mint for you. If you’re craving a more mint-forward tea, there are other Moroccan mints out there with a stronger mint flavor.
Flavors: Fennel, Licorice, Mint
This is a good, mild Earl Grey. The bergamot is really subtle in this tea, which is an interesting change of pace from a typical Early Grey. Based on what they were trying to go for with this tea, the more subtle bergamot flavor is supposed to accentuate the boba/chocolate flavor of the rest of the tea. It does taste a little creamy. I’m not really tasting a forward note of any particular flavor; all subtle flavors seem to combine to create a mild black tea. Good for an upset stomach, I think.
Flavors: Honey, Vanilla
This tea is pretty good. It really tastes like I’m drinking hot maple syrup. It’s a very light flavor, which given the volume of tea, temperature of the water and steep time, I was not expecting. Not really getting many pancake notes, but usually with teas like this, I’m expecting a lot of artificial flavor. There’s very little artificial flavor here, which is great. I can taste the black tea on the aftertaste. Overall, a very good tea, though not something that’s typically my style.
It was kind of bland for me. I had to let it cool before I could really taste the more subtle flavors of the green and oolong teas. It smells fantastic dry, anyway. I think all of the flavors would pop out with a little sugar, but I always say that. :)
