Moroccan Mint Tea

£6.70£33.50

Our Moroccan Mint Tea is a refreshing blend of Chinese Gunpowder Green Tea & African spearmint. Delicious as a comforting warm cup and equally enjoyable as a refreshing cold beverage over ice!

Before black tea gained popularity in Britain, green tea was the brew of choice for most. In the 18th and 19th centuries, this was likely to have been a classic Chinese “gunpowder” tea. To acquire a smoky taste, the tea leaves are fired in large drums and then rolled to resemble pellets of gunpowder, which is where this particular tea gets its name. This ancient technique of rolling the leaves, gave the tea a certain hardiness as it was transported across continents, preserving its distinctive flavour and aroma.

When combined with our African spearmint, we are left with a classic Moroccan mint blend. Traditionally drunk from tall glasses in Morocco and sweetened with sugar or a drop of honey. Whether sweetening or not, should you opt for a hot beverage, the trick (as with most green teas) is to not over brew it. A lot of people are put off green tea for its often bitter taste, but if brewed correctly, this off-putting flavour can be easily avoided!

For the best brew possible, leave your water for 2-3 minutes after boiling to a cool a little. Once its temperature has dropped slightly, now’s the time to brew your tea, making sure it isn’t brewed for any longer than 3 minutes. The resulting cup will have a delightfully fresh, almost spring grass-like flavour without the unpleasant bitter edge that comes with an over-brewed green tea!

(Please bear in mind, that as this is a Green Tea, it does contain caffeine.)

    Absolutely delicious! I’ve tried mint tea before and there’s been barely any mint flavour just a slight aroma. This stuff actually tastes of mint but it compliments the flavour of the tea and doesn’t overwhelm it. I love it and will be ordering more.
