For generations, Moroccan Mint tea has been an integral part of Moroccan culture. Whether it is consumed to start the day, finish the day, as a show of hospitality, or just to quench thirst, Moroccan Mint is always the favorite. Composed of Gunpowder green tea, spearmint and peppermint, it re-steeps well and each subsequent infusion has its own noteworthy flavor profile.
So noteworthy in fact, it’s described in the well known Maghrebi proverb:
~ The first glass is as gentle as life, the second as strong as love, the third as bitter as death ~
Traditionally, enjoyed hot with an abundance of sugar (it’s also delicious on ice).
Slightly astringent and bold, yet minty and cooling.
