Thick and spicy: the strong scent of mint quite recall me the strong aroma of spices in a Maroccan market. At first there are both balsamic notes of mint and sour hints of orange peell, leaving then more room the green tea. Maroccan mint tea! The spicy background still persists, showing huge notes of fennel seeds.
Light and gentle, with hints of mint.
Defintely more consistent with its dry scent than to its "wet scent". It's a gentle green tea, with smooth notes of fennell seeds and anise in first place. The balsamic background made by mint is perfectly mixed with the previous flavours, giving a full-bodied, but still rounded, infusion. It leave a short aftertaste made up of anise.
A green tea which recalls me to the time I have spent in Marocco, with strong notes of mint and spices in general. Surprisingly, the infusion is really smooth, making it perfect as an after dinner tea.
My score is: 8.25/10
