A NOTE FROM YOUR TEA SOMMELIER FOR YOU
Morocco's famous mint tea - green tea steeped with a lot of spearmint and peppermint - has become symbolic not only of Moroccan cuisine but also a true expression of Moroccan hospitality and culture. Be sure to lift the teapot high above the cup while pouring; Moroccans appreciate it this way as this aerates the tea. The amber-colored beverage is invigorating and guaranteed to shake up your senses and excite your taste buds.
Mint is something of a wonder herb and when combined with green tea, it elevates the healing properties of the tea-botanica. It is superb at cooling down the body and raising its defenses against the heat. Moroccan Mint tea also acts as a powerful antioxidant. It relieves heartburn, boosts mental performance, promotes focus, loosens congestion, and breaks up coughs.
Sip on this revitalizing beverage in the middle of a long day when your spirits can use a bit of pick-me-up. Also perfect for bright sunny days and breezy evenings, regardless of whether it is steeped hot or served over ice. We suggest brewing up a pot of Moroccan Mint tea to go alongside a lively Moroccan mezze platter. Think falafel, hummus, and pitta. Or you can choose to serve with absolutely nothing at all.
