Wow! I am so excited about this one! I have been reading about Moroccan Mint on Steepster for so long and I finally got some today! I never remember to look for it, but as I was buying my Fig Formosa today I saw the big tin and bought 100 grams. I already have plans for getting more….soon.

I made the first steep and hubby and I drank a bit of it hot and plain. We both liked it. The gunpowder green is smooth and the mint is so well blended, it doesn’t overpower the green tea but it isn’t shy, either! This really is about the mint, but it is playing so nicely and sharing the spotlight!

I wanted to ice some of it, and since the young lady who sold it to me told me it is drunk heavily sweetened and hot all year in Morocco, I decided to taste it hot and sweetened, so I made a second steep, planning to then put it in the refrigerator to try as a sweet, iced tea tomorrow. We drank some of the hot, sweetened second steep. It was fantastic! I combined the remaining parts of steeps one and two in a pitcher and put it in the fridge.

I can see this being a summertime staple. I can see not letting myself run out of it this. I want more NOW! Good thing my son lives near Tin Roof Teas and can more for me very easily! I am really excited about how beautifully it resteeped. That really makes it affordable, and I plan to drink a lot of it. This is going to be so refreshing here in our hot, muggy summer.

I recommend reading up about how it is traditionally prepared and served and doing what you can to try and replicate that at least once. It is quite an experience.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
