So last week I visited my friend where I bought a selection of teas from various tea shops around Covent Garden. Today I tried one of the teas from my mini green tea selection from Whittard.
I thought that this was pretty good value as usual from Whittard at only £6 for a selection of 3 x 25g caddies of green tea (on sale).
This morning I felt like trying the Moroccan Mint, which is described as being a blend of smoky green tea with sweet spearmint. It contains 7% spearmint according to the box.
I brewed up a little cup of this according to the instructions and supped away. I was pleasantly surprised at how mild and sweet this is and loved the subtle minty aroma, in comparison to traditional Moroccan Mint Tea. This made a nice change, though I was expecting a stronger minty flavour.
You can buy this on sale here or pop into your local store if you have time. I love their chili hot chocolate!
But I digress…
I wished it was more minty but it was very pleasant and mild, without that bitter green tea taste that I dislike when I have slightly over-brewed the tea. I’ll definitely drink it again.
One more thing…
Something else that I tried recently whilst having another little coffee catch-up with one of the girls was Starbucks’ Hot Mulled Fruits, which is essentially spiced hot fruit juices. I know this won’t be to everyone’s taste but it reminded me of the hot Ribena my mum used to give me as a little girl. Did anyone else have hot Ribena?
I can’t wait to try the Gunpowder green tea!
Have you tried this tea? Do you like mint tea?
