Tea of the Week – Casablanca Twist

Name:  Casablanca Twist

Type:  Green

Region:  Darjeeling, India

Bought At:  Adagio

Price:  $3 for a 10 cup sample

First Impressions:  Minty aroma

Review:

My second tea this month is a green from adagio: Casablanca Twist.  I didn’t really know anything about this tea before I tried it, and was surprised by its minty flavor.  It has a very smooth, light green tea feeling to it and by far the biggest taste you get is that of mint – peppermint to be exact.  I learned it is a “twist” (pun intended) on the older Moroccan Mint which uses gunpowder instead of Darjeeling as the base.  I would be interested to try Moroccan to see the difference between the two.  It isn’t overpowering like some mint herbal teas, just a cool feeling after you have taken a sip.  Overall it was pretty good, definitely refreshing.  It would probably make an interesting iced tea. While it was a good mint tea, mint really isn’t my favorite; but others who enjoy mint more might like it better.

My Rating:
2.5 / 5
