Jancis Robinson: “Moroccan green mint tea with spiced rum. A blend of green Chinese Gunpowder tea, dried mint, dried apple, dried lemongrass and further botanicals. On the back label: 'Guided by the position of the blistering sun, Arabian merchants trailed through the endless dunes of the Sahara. With green tea on their camels' backs, the convoy finally reached Tangier and was welcomed by locals with aromatic mint leaves – an expression of true Moroccan generosity.' Perfect serve, as with The Tale of Earl Grey, is 125 ml over ice, but Vincent recommends serving this with a muddle of mint leaves.

Paler than The Tale of Earl Grey, but still a beautiful pale amber colour. At first, all you can smell is the mint. It fills the air, fills your nose, fills your head. Then orange. The smell of evening in an orange orchard – a smell I've only experienced once, in Rome. It's sun and hot earth and orange-skin oils glistening on skin at the end of a baking day, and orange tree leaves green and strong. The green tea is much more delicate and you can just, barely, pick it up on the palate. It has just a glimpse of that herbal-bitter note of green tea, a trail of smoke, and the tannins are kohl-pencil smudged on the tongue. The rum gives a tiny, almost imperceptible warmth and spice at the back of the throat, but as with the Tale of Earl Grey, this is really about the tea.” 11% alc. Drink now-2019.
