Numi Tea Simply Mint, Moroccan Mint Herbal Tea

A gift from a coworker. I did not tell her my love for the moroccan mint green tea from Kookoo Cafe, so I was pleasantly surprised. I must admit that I was a little apprehensive, however, to try this tea insofar as I am not one for herbal, or tisane, teas. But I gave it a shot anyway. And my instinct did not let me down. The mint is this was too powerful and artificial tasting. It reminded me a little of mouthwash, and made me feel like I was rinsing my teeth in sugar water. There was no artistry or aesthetics in this cuppa. It was very crude in my opinion, albeit a strong one.
