Picture of Moroccan Mint Green Tea

Moroccan Mint Green Tea from Teavana

Style: Green Tea with Mint – Region: ?????

Russian Country from Harney and Sons

I like smoked paprika (keep the sweet kind away from me.) I like smoked brisket. I like campfires. I like tea.

I thought I'd like Lapsang. But it was just too smoky. A co-worker and tea genius made some for me and I tried it but then yelped, turned tail, and felt a deep shame.
