Wednesday is Green Tea, White Tea, Rooibos, Oolong and Tisane (Herbal) Review Day!
Over the last twenty years or so the tea industry has really seen an explosion of creativity. Of course, this is an extension of a longer trend, but also a micro-trend itself. Flavor creativity with teas has hit a high note!

Frank from 52teas, a side project of Zoomdweebies Tea Bar in Wichita, Kansas has been at it again. His small batch hand blended teas remain top notch and ultimately the most creative in the industry at the moment.
While this blend is sold out, hence the “small batch,” I have to extol its wonders to the world. Frank’s creativity and skill has really taken this industry to a fun and new level!
Medium length broken green leaves with some stems make up the appearance of this green tea blend. It brews to a light green with tinges of amber on the face.
The aroma is clear and distinct with overtones of a lightly sweetened mint.
The flavor matches well, providing a minty flavor with sugary notes accentuated by a tail which is a bit stern andelongated but without much bite.
I recommend this tea to everyone. If you could try it, you would know why. Go bother Frank and have him make some more!

Thanks for the kudos, Chris. I would only add that while we are sold out of this particular blend (for the moment), we do have other great blends. The thing about creating something new every week is that either we are going to end up with a huge inventory, or we are going to sell out.
I prefer to sell out and create something new and even more fantastic every week. That said, we are not above reblending some of the blends that people really enjoyed. I’m currently working on adding a “Hall of Fame” section to the website which will feature some of the best of the best–the shamrock green tea, coconut cream pie black tea, pina colada honeybush, vanilla date black tea with coconut, maybe the mayan chocolate chai…
Anyway, if your readers want us to reblend the Champagne Mojito, I would encourage them to comment on that post and ask us to reblend it. You never know what we’re going to do next. The post is here– http://www.52teas.com/2009/04/04/040509-melusians-champagne-mojito-flavored-green-tea/ if anyone wants to comment it.
I guess the reason I’m commenting here is out of curiosity about this blend and others like it. It’s called Mojito but as I understand there’s not going to be any actual alcohol in it, right? Is it just a flavored tea that’s made to taste like the strong drinks, like a mocktail?
Jason, you are correct. There is no alcohol in this tea. It does however both smell and taste very similar to a Mojito. I would say the aroma is almost dead-on!
