A sparkling brew of naturally reviving mint leaves and gentle Ceylon Green Tea. ABOUT THE BRAND Some years ago, Americans drank mainly Ceylon Tea, the world’s finest. Today, almost any brand you buy is a multi-origin blend that is a mix of teas from several countries. Dilmah, new to the U.S, is the number one brand of authentic, garden fresh Single Origin Ceylon tea in over 90 countries. Dilmah is Single Origin, 100% Pure Ceylon, entirely grown, handpicked & packaged in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), producer of the world’s finest tea. Single Origin explains why Dilmah is fresher, richer & full of flavour. Discerning tea drinkers will recognise the distinct difference in the very first sip. Dilmah is Packed at Source, Garden Fresh. Packaging in Sri Lanka, within days of picking fresh leaf in the tea fields, maximizes freshness, the key to antioxidants in tea. Founder Merrill J. Fernando is the most senior master tea taster today and his face appears on every pack of Dilmah tea, as his personal guarantee of the quality & freshness of Dilmah. Merrill & his two sons Dilhan & Malik (from whose names the brand name was coined) offer aficionados a truly different experience of tea. Dilmah is Traditionally Manufactured. Ordinary teas have abandoned the centuries’ old “orthodox” method of manufacture for the fast track “CTC” (cut twist curl) process, to meet demand for a quicker brew from tea bags. This has sacrificed the character & real taste of tea. Dilmah stands firmly by traditional tea making methods, which explains why Dilmah tea tastes so different. Dilmah is the world’s first truly ethical tea. It is the only international brand name owned by tea growers. We pack our tea shelf ready, right where it is grown. Earnings therefore remain in Sri Lanka for the benefit of our workers. Visit www.mjffoundation.org and Dilmah.com to learn more.

I found this tea to be one of the weakest mint teas I have ever tried. I also should mention that these are not foil wrapped bags, but are instead plastic wrapped. If one is out for a better base level green mint tea go with Bigelow Green Tea with Mint instead of this. Also want to give amazon a big thumbs down for shipping out such a short coded product not listed as such.

We cooked our rice with this wonderful tea and they came out a great hit. Saute some cumin seeds in olive oil, brew 2 cups of Dilmah Moroccan Mint green tea, take 1 cup of Basmati rice and add the same into tea and cumin seeds. Add salt to taste and let it simmer on low heat. The rice should be cooked in 10 minutes or when the water evaporates. You will have a wonderful tasing and very healthy rice dish with Hint of Mint. This has become a regular feature with our meals and we are going to try such ideas with other Dilmah flavors also.

I was never much of a green tea drinker until I found Moroccan Mint. I used to drink an English brand until I was no longer able to find it. I tried several other kinds of green tea with mint, and they were either too strong with mint, or too bitter, or too weak. The Dilmah Moroccan Mint tea is none of those! Even when I forget and leave it steeping, it’s not bitter or too overpowering. We drink gallons of it in my house, and have a regular subscription to it!
I agree with the earlier reviewer that this tea does not have an overly strong mint flavor. If you are looking for something that screams “minty,” this is not it.
The mint flavor is delicate, not heavy or annoying, and, in my view, absolutely perfect. You can drop these into a thermos and go to work, and whether you leave them seeping for 20 minutes or 10 hours, the tea will be delicious– not over-seeped or too strong.
The bags are indeed foil (foil-lined). They have a paper coating on the outside, and when you open them you find that the inside of each tea packet is lined completely with foil.
This is one of my favorite teas personally, but as the other reviewer said, if you want something with a very heavy mint taste, look elsewhere.
