From Eastern Shore Tea Co.

Traditional Moroccan Mint tea is made with gunpowder green tea, fresh spearmint and lashings of sugar. After brewing, it is poured from a height until air cooled enough to drink. The yellow-green liqueur is wonderfully refreshing and is a pleasure to consume the requisite three cups, in order to be polite! It is said, “the first cup is as bitter as life, the second is as sweet as love, and the third is as gentle as death.” Profound thoughts for a delightful brew! Gunpowder tea is rolled into small, round pellets and somewhat resembles “shot.” In China, however it is called Pearl tea. The old recipe calls for three teaspoons of gunpowder tea and three tablespoons of fresh spearmint. This is a close approximation in flavor to the original. In Morocco, tea vendors with portable tea urns, provided day long refreshment. It is well worth brewing our own, for Moroccan Mint tea is unusually cooling. Traditional blend of Gunpowder Green Tea & spearmint. Wonderfully cooling, hot or iced.

I am planning a tea party for a ladies’ group that I belong to, and one of the sweet ladies there gave me a bag of this tea telling me it is her favorite “company tea” and that she would love to have it served at the party. I told her I adore a good Moroccan Mint, so I’d give it a try and then see about adding it to the tea list. I mean how in the world do I say no to that?

So today after lunch I decided to give this tea a try. It’s a bagged tea which didn’t bother me, but the directions for steeping say to pour boiling water over the bag and allow to steep for five minutes. It’s not in me to pour boiling water over sencha. I can’t see how the tea could be anything but a bitter mess, so I lowered the water temp and steeped it for two minutes. The result? Not bad! It was nice and minty, but I could definitely taste the green tea which was a little vegetal and grassy. For a bagged tea I actually think this is pretty good, and I’m glad I got the chance to try it.

Looks like this will be making an appearance at the party.
