Moroccan mint tea is not so much a drink as it is a ritual, a sign of hospitality, an event in which to partake. In Morocco, hosts, shop owners, and teahouses take great care in the process of brewing mint tea and serving it to anyone who walks through their doors.
Tea is cleansed in boiling water before steeping with mint leaves and sugar added to yield a sweet, flavorful drink. Such great care yields spectacular tea. Tea that we, in turn, wanted you to experience.
With Trader Joe’s Organic Moroccan Mint Tea, we’ve simplified a few of the accustomed brewing steps, delivering full flavor in the handy form of a tea bag. Our supplier first sources organic spearmint from the Pacific Northwest—because mint tea isn’t complete without some of the finest mint leaves around. Organic lemongrass—which adds a bit of zest—and organic green tea from South India complete the trifecta of ingredients inspired by that traditional Maghrebi brew.
When steeped, this tea is delightful, refreshing, and oh-so minty. If you’d like it to taste even more like the time-honored, sweet tea served in Morocco, add a heaping spoonful of Organic Sugar to your mug immediately after steeping the tea. You won’t regret it. Of course, our Organic Moroccan Mint Tea isn’t just limited to tradition. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint for a refreshing drink on warmer days.
Each 1.27 ounce box of 20 Trader Joe’s Organic Moroccan Mint tea bags is $2.49. Find it on our shelves among the rest of our fine, internationally inspired teas.
