Green Peace from Chad’s Chai & Tea Co.

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  Chad’s Chai & Tea

Product Description:

The Moroccans liked to blend green tea with mint, and we couldn’t agree more wholeheartedly! Refreshing and calming, Green Peace is an inspired blend of extraordinary green tea and spearmint leaf. It can be enjoyed by itself or with food, and simply must be tried iced!

Taster’s Review:

I tried this before knowing anything about it except for its name.  I could smell the mint, although it was not overwhelming.  When I tasted it, I could taste the mint, but, it didn’t taste like a typical “Moroccan Mint” to me… it tasted like there was something a little different.

And there is!  Where many mint green teas settle for either peppermint or spearmint, Chad’s Chai & Tea chose to use both mints to create a real depth of flavor.  But even with two different types of mint, the mint flavor is not overwhelming here, and I am able to taste the Chinese green tea.

Although the website for Chad’s Chai & Tea does not specify what type of Chinese green tea is used for this blend, it looks like a gunpowder green tea.  The tea has a light, creamy butter taste in the background which when combined with the minty flavors, comes across as a very creamy mint taste.  Delicious!

This tea tastes invigorating, but there is a certain soothing property to it as well.  I feel more relaxed as I continue to sip it.

With mint teas, sometimes they are just too MINTY… but, this one is just right.  A nice balance between green tea and mint flavors, and I like the blending of the two types of mint.  A very pleasant mint green tea!

Peach & Apricot Green Tea from Empire Tea Services

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: Empire Tea Services

Product Description:

Gunpowder green tea with peach / apricot flavor.

Tasters Review:

Peach & Apricot Green Tea from Empire Tea Services is INTENSELY flavored and smells AWESOME! 🙂

The flavored gunpowder is shiny prior to infusion.  After the infusion is complete – the leaves expand quite a bit – and are still very highly scented.

The post-infused liquid is quite dark in color…probably the darkest I have seen for a gunpowder.

The flavor of this is really REALLY good…very Peach AND Apricot and equally-so!  The gunpowder taste is present but in the background.

This is a highly flavored gunpowder and I like it a lot – mostly because of the flavors we are dealing with here!  I love both Peach and Apricot and think they BOTH go really well with Green Tea.

Potpourri Tea from LiberTEAS (And Tea Giveaway)

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: LiberTEAS

Product Description:

A gunpowder tea that looks and smells like potpourri … a unique sensory delight! This gunpowder tea will leave you hooked – it’s absolutely divine!

Tasters Review:

Potpourri Tea is from LiberTEAS – both the person and the co-founder of this blog!  She was so nice to send me a tin of this.  I remember having it before and liking it.

It’s a VERY beautiful and interesting tea!  The aroma of the dry blend is ‘pretty’ and then once you add the hot water to infuse it’s much more intense!  It smells JUST LIKE potpourri and certainly lives up to it’s name!  It made me feel like I was walking thru a glorious flower garden!

The taste is light yet flavorful and floral and semi sweet at the end of the sip. It’s a very Feminine tea. Nice. Relaxing…but I do think that men would enjoy it too at the end of a day or if you are stressed and need a break earlier on.

The aftertaste was pleasant and my palate was very pleased. I could taste the gunpowder but  also the flowers without it being too much floral!

I would ALSO suggest this tea to people who are not sure about gunpowder teas or don’t like the after taste of them…with the other ingredients in this blend – it doesn’t leave that stereotypical gunpowder aftertaste but the gunpowder is still present and you can still receive the benefits of the gunpowder!
