Mint Tea Morocco
Refreshing mix of green gunpowder and peppermint leaves.
A classic Moroccan Mint tea, combining Gunpowder green tea from China with fresh mint. With a perfect balance of green tea and dried green mint leaf, this stunning classic is refreshing and reviving.
Moroccan-style mint tea is now commonly served all through the West Arab World (North Africa). It is served not only at mealtimes but all through the day, and it is especially a drink of hospitality, commonly served whenever there are guests. Traditionally the tea is served three times, and the amount of time the tea has been steeping gives each of the three glasses of tea a unique flavor, described in this famous proverb:
The first glass is as bitter as life,
the second glass is as strong as love,
the third glass is as gentle as death.
