Tay Tea Berber

Tay Tea describes this tea as aromatic blend of wild Moroccan spearmint blended with Chinese gunpowder green tea. The dry leaves were mostly small pieces and a mix of various shades of green. The gunpowder was easily recognizable in its traditional tightly rolled balls of leaf. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 175 degree water for three minutes. The liquor was a pale gold color.

This tea was sweet and minty in a pleasant and mellow way. It was only slightly vegetal and there was very little astringency. I was happy to find a slight smokiness in the flavor profile as that is one of my favorite aspects of a gunpowder tea. This blend was both delicate and refreshing. A second steeping was just as delicious and didn’t loose any potency. I would definitely recommend this tea.
