Zhi Tea’s Turkish Mint Spice Tea

(Image from Zhi Tea)

My tastes in hot tea usually run to the bold, fragrant, or nutty.  I drink an awful lot of genmaicha and jasmine. I don’t like cream, or sugar, or honey, or lemon in my tea. I like my tea to taste like tea. So this probably isn’t the tea I would have normally picked, but Greenling is now offering the sample-sized packs of Zhi tea on their website and the flavor combination of the Turkish Mint Spice looked interesting enough that I decided to give it a try. And it’s delicious! The website lists it as a mix of Organic peppermint, licorice, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger root, stevia leaf, clove, and vanilla essence.

Stevia is a GI diet “green” sweetner and is a nice compliment to the other flavors in this blend. Quite possibly my new favorite tea! And bonus! Zhi Tea is made in Austin which makes it a local product for me!
