Spot of Tea: Stash Mojito Mint Green Tea with Matcha

Mint and matcha come together in this refreshing green tea from Stash. I was a bit worried that a mojito-flavored tea would be pumped full of odd lime flavor, but if there's a hint of lime in this tea, it's subtle. It's really all about the mint.

The mint in this tea is bright and mouth-freshening (but not too toothpaste-like) and the green tea is quite smooth, a little earthy with a hint of grass. If you're a fan of Moroccan mint teas, this is a pleasing variation.

I'll be brewing up more of this to have around the house for iced tea—feel free to add a squeeze of lime or a sprig of mint if you want to get fancy.

Available online, $5.45 for 30 teabags.
